Sommers is an ardent critic of modern feminism and hosts a blog, The Factual Feminist, on various topics related to feminist issues. Her most recent post is on intersectional feminism, the philosophy behind students' focus on microaggressions, trigger warnings and privilege, which she traces back to the 1960s-70s. "Ironically members of the insider victim class now do to others what they accuse the privileged class of doing to them: they stereotype, demonize, shame, and silence people," says Sommers in the video.
