This video discusses some of the key concepts of third wave feminism, including intersectionality and post-modernism. It critiques the movement for not taking into account the complexities of different intersections of identity, and for not adhering to medical definitions of terms such as "srs."

  • 00:00:00 Third wave feminism is a different, more post-modern form of feminism that incorporates notions of post-structuralism and post-modernism.
  • 00:05:00 This video discusses the concept of intersectionality, which is a key term in third wave feminism. It explains that when talking about women, intersectionality refers to different identity markers, such as race, sexual orientation, and disability. Although the concept is important, many third wave feminists do not consider religion and disability as important issues.
  • 00:10:00 This video discusses the idea that there is no such thing as common oppression, and that different groups of people experience different forms of oppression. Bell hooks says that a mass-based feminist movement is necessary in order to end sexist oppression, and Beau hooks contradicts herself by saying that the oppression has to be okay in order to achieve feminism as a universal concept.
  • 00:15:00 The video discusses how third wave feminism tries to be unified, but has disagreements on issues such as oppression and race. Judith Butler points out that gender is a performance, while race is a social construct. This creates a problem because Butler uses vague language when talking about race, while she speaks in more specific terms when discussing gender. This creates a division in the feminist movement, weakening activism.
  • 00:20:00 Mohammed Hijab discusses how third wave feminism does not take into account the complexities of intersectionality, and how it would be wise to rely on Judith Butler's opinion on the matter.
  • 00:25:00 The speaker critiques third way feminism's definition of domestic violence, which is limited to violence between individuals who are related through intimacy, blood, or law. The speaker points out that this definition only allows for male perpetrators and excludes children, which is an issue because domestic violence can occur against children.
  • 00:30:00 According to the nspcc, crime in the Muslim world is predominantly committed by women, not men. Third wave feminism challenges this definition, stating that violence against women is a product of power relationships and cannot be defined without privileging one gender.
  • 00:35:00 The video discusses definitions of rape, feminism, and third wave feminism. It explains that, in a definition of rape according to second wave feminism, female genital mutilation (FGM) would be considered as one of the four types of rape. According to the NHS, women who have labiaplasty, a type of surgery which reshapes the female genitalia, are also at risk of undergoing female genital mutilation. Additionally, the video discusses sexual realignment surgery, which is where a man removes all or part of his penis, and how that would be considered as FGM.
  • 00:40:00 In this video, Mohammed Hijab discusses the third wave feminism movement and its definition of "srs." He points out that there are many medical conditions that can occur after a woman has a clitoridectomy, and that this should be taken into account when discussing abortion. He also discusses the definition of "srs" and its lack of adherence to medical conceptions.
  • 00:45:00 The video discusses the third wave feminism concept of "homo nationalism", which refers to the privileging of homosexual bodies over those of other communities. This privileging may be used to justify oppression, as in the case of aid to African countries.
  • 00:50:00 In this video, Mohammed Hijab discusses the idea of "coming out of the closet" and how it is preferred to going into into the closet. He argues that this is a form of cultural imperialism, and that there is no justification for it. He goes on to discuss the issue of sexuality, and how third wave feminists believe that people should be able to express themselves in whatever way they please. He also argues that this will be the expression of the true self, and will result in self-actualization.
  • 00:55:00 The video discusses the intersection of different identities and how, as intersectionalists, they should prioritize the subject's decision over any hierarchy. It also discusses the deconstructionist nature of post-modernism, which has led to the deconstruction of second wave feminism.
