# Intersectional Identities

“A man may be regarded as the point of intersection of an indefinite number of circles representing social groups” – - Cooley, Human Nature and the Social Order (1922)

Cooley imagined affiliations and interests as a system of coordinates, with each additional group determining one’s individuality and identity more accurately.

“These ‘reciprocally constructing phenomena’ that may empower one person with increasing self-actualization, burden others with exponentially debilitating oppression.” Related: the matrix of domination and intersectional theory in Design Justice
