intersectionality

The concept that no form of social oppression are exclusive from each other, and are rather intimately interconnected.

  • sexism is not exclusive from racism
  • homophobia is not exclusive from sexism
  • and such

An important concept to consider is the idealization of Eurocentric, heterosexual, masculine ideal as a specific default; anything outside of that category would be socially oppressed in some form or another, moreso the less it fits into said ideal.
