Portland "Portlandia" Feminist Bookstore Closes; Blames "White Cis Feminism," Patriarchy, Capitolism

Bwahahahaha score another win for the patriarchy, fellow patriarchs:
“The current volunteers and board members stepped into and took over a space that was founded on white, cis feminism (read: white supremacy). It’s really difficult, actually, impossible, for us to disentangle from that foundational ideology,” the statement continued. “Patriarchy, White Supremacy, Capitalism cannot be reformed and ever serve the people. Abolition is the goal.”
It's so weird that an anti-capitalist business would fail. Not to mention a feminist bookstore that hates white feminists. Oh well, I'm sure they had a killer business plan...but the patriarchy always wins!

Looks like you buried the lead:

But the board says increased expenses and a lack of funds and volunteers have made operations impossible to continue.

The immediate cause of the closing was a lack of resources. Why it had that lack of resources is an interesting question, but that they blamed the patriarchy is, of course, and an example how victory has a thousand fathers, while defeat is always an orphan.
