This is an alarm clock of an episode because it will wake you up—especially if you've ever claimed to be an "Intersectional Feminist." Lutze Segu is a multi-issue social justice activist and practitioner of Black queer Feminism, who discussed the difference between presenting yourself as a feminist, and actually participating in social activism. We also chatted about how being an ally is not an identity but a process, and why looking at social issues such as poverty and climate change through a feminist lens is the only way to make the world a better place. Also on the conversational platter: women's marches, the "do it like a dude" mentality, Serena Williams, and what goes through your mind when a bunch of Neo Nazis show up at your place of work. This episode is rich, appropriately dense, and subtly sweet—you know, like a good carrot cake. And here are a couple articles to check out, both penned by Lutze: https://thenewtropic.com/lutze-segu/ https://www.salon.com/2013/10/22/why_i_wont_call_myself_a_slut/
