Praising strong, independent badass female characters who stand on their own character wise (Shuri, Nakia, Okoye, etc.)... but putting them down on the sly because they aren't rulers are only slated next-in-line. Never mind Wakanda doesn't bar women from leadership. Never mind that female opinions and female wisdom are an integral part of Wakandan live and government.

This is another reason why I can't get into gender critical/radical feminism. They are racist on the sly and I think ignoring the nuance of Wakandan culture is where the term White Feminism is okay.

Not to make White women shut up, but to explain why it is they see things differently and why they must dictate what is and isn't acceptable for WOC empowerment. "White Feminism" as a dog whistle encourages silence whereas saying hey no offense but you as a White woman are viewing things from your white female perspective.

Anyways, I'm going to hang back and avoid discussions involving non-White things. Not because I don't want non-White female leaders or non-White female led movies, but because White feminism really can't understand why Black men and women and children are so excited about a movie like Black Panther.
