“Dilbert comic Scott Adams wrote last month that we live in a matriarchy because, ‘access to sex is strictly controlled by the woman.’ Meaning that you don’t get to have sex with someone unless they want to have sex with you, which if we say it without any gender pronouns sounds completely reasonable. You don’t get to share someone’s sandwich unless they want to share their sandwich with you, and that’s not a form of oppression either. You probably learned that in kindergarten. But if you assume that sex with a female body is a right that heterosexual men have, then women are just these crazy illegitimate gatekeepers always trying to get in between you and your rights. Which means you have failed to recognize that women are people, and perhaps that comes from the books and movies you have—and haven’t—been exposed to, as well as the direct inculcation of the people and systems around you.”
“A commitment to sexual equality with men is a commitment to becoming the rich instead of the poor, the rapist instead of the raped, the murderer instead of the murdered.” –Andrea Dworkin
Feminism is not for equality.
Feminism is for female liberation.
“men don’t realize that they understand the point of women’s liberation, but they do. they understand it very well.
every time a dude says some shit like, “oh, you’re for equality of the sexes? does that mean I can hit you?” he is demonstrating his perfect understanding of the shortcomings of egalitarianism.
men target women for not being men, but men don’t only target women. men also beat the shit out of each other. men rape each other. men kill each other. men treat each other like absolute shit.
virtually all of the violence that occurs on this planet is committed by males, whether it’s committed against females or against other males. men tell us every day, in no uncertain terms, that they believe “equality” means “violence.” equality with these barbarians? I think not.
liberation from their generations-old, ironclad system of perpetual violence and destruction? yes, please. sign me up.”
“Patriarchy is founded on the exploitation of the female body, followed by the control and restriction of the female’s life.Before tumblr, before gender identity, before feminism, men decided that the control of the female body and it’s reproductive capacity was profitable and that no empire is built with free women.
Female human beings are women, women are female human beings.’’Female’’ is a word that refers to our reproductive system that is present in other species and ‘’Woman’’ addresses our humanity, our conscience, our rationality, our feelings, and it also includes our physiological reality of being female.’’Womanhood’’ refers to our experience in the world and in society, it addresses a bunch of experiences and relatable facts that is shared among women (females), that is not shared by males in any aspect, it is physically and metaphorically impossible for a male to experience womanhood,’’Misogyny’’ is the hatred and aversion of women (females) and it’s very present in womanhood since we live in a misogynist society, and such as womanhood, can’t be experience by males or directed against males.’’Patriarchy’’ is the social model that exploits women (females) and promotes male supremacy.’’Gender’’ is a tool of patriarchy that dictates how the sexes must behave, promoting dominant socialization to males(men) and submissive socialization to females (women).’’Feminism’’ is the social movement founded by women (females) for women (females) that promotes the end of patriarchy: the root of women’s oppression, and fights for Women’s liberation, not equality of the sexes, Women’s Liberation.
I suggest you to think twice before trying to change the meanings of those words, specially if you want to be a feminist, think about all the damage and consequences that you can provoke just by interfering in the language that is used by a group that is oppressed for millennia.”
“There was only one group of people who were ever responsible for endangering my life when I was in prostitution and they most certainly were not abolitionists; they were sex buying men. The same sex buying men whose dicks will never be sucked by the liberal feminists who defend and uphold the right of those men to have their dicks sucked by other women; economically disenfranchised, economically disadvantaged, socially deprived, and racially marginalized women.”
