Have you ever heard of "intersectionality"? Can someone please explain this thing to me? It doesn't even sound like a real word!
So basically it is the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage.
How have you never heard of it? Do you even live in South Africa!
We totally get it now! How did we not know this, I mean it happens everyday in South Africa!
the joint effect of being a woman, belonging to an ethnic minority, and representing disadvantaged social class is seen as the totality of the effects of these three demographic variables.
Did I just say I am a minority? Yes - as a beggar, white young females are rarely ever seenbegging for food, shelter or money to survive. To be perfectly honest I have only seen white males begging at intersections or in malls
