No one should be surprised intersectionalism reflects some of the same general principles as the American Nazi Party. Intersectionalism is racist, sexist and supremacist. It is arrogant. It is intolerant. It has no interest in law or equal rights and in fact uses power/privilege theory to abolish equal protection for others. Intersectionalism is paranoid and hateful. It has invented a whole new set of demonization theories based on empty European intellectualism and American radical lesbian ideological excuse notes from teacher. Despite it's bleating, intersectionalism produces nothing, no new thoughts, new and interesting intersections and perceptual shifts. It is painfully dogmatic, illiberal and sluggish, and above all unaware. It is incapable of true satire, expressing irony or of employing metaphors. Intersectionalism is narcissistic, obsessive, self-contradictory and full of semantic gibberish. Intersectionalism routinely lies about history and current events with the goal of propaganda. It has no interest in literature or the arts except to advance its world view and stifle those it disagrees with. In fact intersectionalism is almost brutally illiterate, especially in its lack of art appreciation. Intersectionalism is manic in its myopic outlooks and identity centrism. The narrow spectrum of its provincialism and exposure to and experience with other world cultures is the opposite of what it claims for itself. In terms of events, intersectionalism uses an American-centric parochial lens analogous to an identity laden Jim Crow it smears over the entire world and its history. It considers any contact with its own gay, non-white and female identities to be in itself mind expanding and an exemplar of a range of diverse thought. In fact intersectionalism is conformist and static in its thinking. It is hypocritical to the point of delusion in that it regularly encourages acts for itself it forbids in others, setting up rules only others must obey. Its hatred of men, whites and heterosexuals is phobic, endemic and feral. In short intersectionalism is exactly the sort of ideology one might expect would be created and taken up by people ranging from the insane and sociopathic to merely stupid, conceited, ignorant and uneducated.

Just so you know the score, in 2009 Scalzi allowed SFF personage (and 2000 founder of the Strange Horizons SFF webzine which features Rochita Loenen-Ruiz's anti-white posts) Mary Ann Mohanraj a startlingly problematic guest post where she asserts No surprise that Mohanraj dotes on or that she quotes Lorde (who remember is a supporter and colleague of Andrea Dworkin) in that very post. Lorde was also one of the earliest proponents of what we today call - surprise - intersectionality. In the same essay "The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House" in which Lorde accuses white feminists of "racist patriarchal thought," Lorde quotes Simone de Beauvoir. It's no coincidence Scalzi wrote in 2013 Together, Scalzi and Mohanraj have done more to introduce and advocate the hateful racial version of French Queer Theory into SFF than anyone. In a few short years the SFWA has become indistinguishable from a racialized lesbian gender studies institute for SFF literature. The Hugos is right behind.
