can you please take a look at my collection of anecdotes of women having genuinely bad experiences which are totally unrelated to the your points of critique of my ideology and then feel emotionally guilt-laden enough to agree with my ideology because the idea of a woman in plight stimulates the same emotional centres in the brain which govern our response to children in plight which is why gender-politics is a chaotic mess?
Your hopeful tumblr-feminist
Except none of the people listed in that blog link are actually feminists? True feminists (the actual definition, not the warped one you’ve decided to attack) believe in equal rights for men and women.
It’s an institutional issue, and that link you pointed me to actually supports the argument that feminism is necessary. Not the white FEMEN type feminism that doesn’t actually accomplish anything, but intersectional feminism that actually tries to solve the problem.
Did either of you even look through the “I once had a guy tell me” blog, or did you think it would be clever to just link me to “I once had a feminst tell me” and think the discussion would end there? Because you know what? Everything in “I once had a guy tell me” is related to your completely misguided belief that we’re in a place where feminism isn’t necessary.
You say that we are in an equal place, that women have more institutional rights than men, but just go through a few pages of that and you’ll see that fathers, brothers, boyfriends, husbands, in addition to strangers, are actively proving that that is not the case.
And they’re all men. You can’t deny the fact that they are all men.
The thing is, whether they are male or female, none of the people “i once had a feminist tell me” are actually feminists- perhaps they are by your definition, but real feminists fight against the sort of institutional thinking that ends up in custody battles where fathers don’t stand a chance, they fight against the thinking that it’s somehow wrong to like baking cookies and doing girly things. A true feminist believes that it’s okay to not want kids AND it’s okay to want a ton of kids.
A true feminist actually fights against all the nonsense in “I once had a feminist tell me”. So thanks for actually supporting the argument that feminism is necessary! You did a good thing there.
Of course, I am trying to talk to someone who actually wrote the sentence “If we only judged movements on the personal definitions of the believers within them, instead of the objective validity of their claims and wider ramifications of their proclamations, we would all be right-wing Republican Amish Hari Krishnas”
So I’ve probably just wasted ten minutes of my time.
Anyways, I’m out. Toodles!
