I can summarize my dislike for it pretty simply:
- Hashtag movements seem to always be entirely based on identity politics, and encouraging peer pressure to join whatever the particular victim group of the day is. And identity politics are always based on overly broad claims that some other race, gender, or class is oppressive and hateful.
- Modern feminists, with their language about “being an ally” and such exemplify the use of identity politics to drive support for arbitrary and tentatively related policy agendas. Anyone who even questions whether there might be a better approach for achieving the supposed core concern is faced with demonization and harassment, which is justified as punishing a hater of some sort.
