Speaking of Sungold, she pointed me at the Which Western Feminist Icon Are You? quiz

My result: "You are bell hooks (no capital letters)! You were one of the first black wymyn to discuss in public spaces the differences between being a black womyn and being a black man or a white womyn. You are the mother of intersectionality and you couldn't care less about identity politics. Thanks for making feminism accessible and calling the white, middle class wymyn on their bullshit!"

That's pretty cool, because I think intersectionality is critical. Everything intersects and connects, nothing is isolated in its own separate sociocultural pigeonhole. (Which is why I seldom use the word "patriarchy" except ironicallysnarkastically; I prefer Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza's coinage kyriarchy.)

That means I have some reading to do, though - I don't know as much about bell hooks as I'd like to/should.
