I guess the second wave had a powerful revamp here then, in the last ten to fifteen years, and in the media plus at gender studies depts at unversity rather than among students in general. Andrea Dworkin had a big vogue here, Judith Butler too - and feminism has become pretty much a watchword, or a system of watchwords to claim your allegiance to a certain camp, rather than an open field of discussion and activity (I'm only discussing the Swedish scene here, and it's a scene where people are first off interested in making it into the mass media, if they're not already established there).
Judith Butler isn't a lesbian essentialist AFAIK, but quite often her work and her name are used here to simply push the notion that the divide in sex/gender (and, occasionally, in sexual orientation: straight vs LGBT) overrides (does and, often, *must* override) every other line of conflict and that women, though by nature brighter and mentally superior, are systematically kept in bondage by the Patriarchate and personally by every man they meet. If these people bring in the idea of intersection (intercutting dimensions of conflict and identity) it's mostly just to say "I'm a working-class girl AND a lesbian AND a woman, so I'm triple oppressed" or "I belong to such and such group, and we're marginalized, plus I'm a woman and women are always oppressed"). And that's mostly used as a quick framework to allow for shitslinging, both at men and at other fminists who don't share this easy-and-fast model.
They keep arguing about what public figures have let them down, in words or in action. I would say I'm a feminist, but not in that sense. This kind of "claiming to decide what is good and what is feminist" is anti-intellectual and seems to lose sight of real issues. I'm sorry to make them come across as a bunch of arrogant whiners, but it's a climate that really shuts down a good deal of discussion around here - and alienates men from feminism too, because even if some of these people say they want the guys in, they still induce a feeling that you're being invited with the elbow and not allowed to speak up about what is important, what's relevant or practicable to do in a feminist context. "You're a guy, only girls should have a say about this".
If there was a Slutwalk in London, Paris or New York and I was there, I would join in, but less likely in Sweden.
