I did a lot of thinking about the issue- and how women are so fast to give up on eachother.
After reading Julian Real’s version of what he thinks ‘rad feminism is’ took on a different turn when he ID’ his privilege away is a sly interdiction to the fact that many females, will never have many of the things he takes for granite and has access to.
I thought the guys were actually reading radfem, but they are just against male rule, but still want women as a second class under them, these are guys that would get angry and throw a fit if they found out they were being paid the same as a female.
And his version of rad fem caters to men through identity alone? When I first visited places in the Gay & Lesbian communities, it was the 1980’s.
I had been questioning if I was gay [lesbian was too dirty to say in public, gay men brought images of John Ritter on 3s company and were the human face of gay communities] .
There is a discrepancy in today’s ‘gay community’.
Gay & Lesbian rights were about human rights and freedoms for gay/lesbian people, however it seemed that the males & females were getting different things out of it and assumed they had the same goals.
The lesbian community needs to leave the GBTQ, because it has more become a ‘sexual rights org’ for born-males and their interests. At one time, particularly when it was the G&L org, it was about civil rights, now it is male rights to a sex lifestyle. Women do not have power in a sexual men’s group exploiting them for the fair female representation[which I have yet to see], fundraising and woman’s suffrage applied to males that take on the females roles demanded by men., it doesn’t apply to actual women, and the lesbians remaining are just being groomed for male interest in female servant ship for the men in the gay community. They are our brothers, but have no invested interest in lesbian rights -which are basically woman’s human rights.
‘Women’s rights’ should not be treated as a sub category interest in a men’s sex org that uses them and their identity and misrepresents their voice/words.
We should opt out.
Biological women need to support each other in female -only spaces so we can address how our laws concerning our own biology are put on hold to provide charity for males in a community that really never really did anything to further women’s rights. Gay men won the right to be treated as straight men. Although they may run across a homophobe or two, for the most part, they have won their primary battle and left behind lesbians that did not even achieve wage equality or even pass the era.
The woman’s community at large needs to step up, and break up with gay community. Whenever woman’s biology or rights are spoke of, they are made to sound like disgusting things or sexual attributes that a man uses, rather than unique attributes that normally validate us as other humans, but in a sex org, females become supplements for guys that want sexual freedom/no attachments 24/7, but are not into dick[straight, but horny enough to hang around the gay community looking for fag-hags that think he is gay and questioning himself].
Women need to completely separate from men in female only spaces. I agree with this and will support any cause that holds up a woman’s right to be left alone. Within female spaces, lesbian separatists are not the only women that would want the men out. Iranian/Middle eastern women that want feminism are only allowed to meet in female-only spaces. Sexual assault and Domestic abuse survivors don’t want to meet with men.
Within female only spaces, domestic violence can be discussed, refugees from war and prostitution can be helped, and we can focus out efforts there, instead of fighting with men over our human rights.
I don’t really have any interest to meet with men to talk about feminism. Nothing personal, but if I want man-isms, that is ready available.
“Women’ need to be separate from the sex fantasy or dysphoria category of how a man can ID. We are clearly oppressed for giving birth [or refusing to]and often punished for anything the child does for the next 18 years. Otherwise, if there are exceptions, the class of ‘women’ gets flooded by male hobbyists[of women] that start making sexual demands they equate to women’ biology on actual women.
It is time for a biological women’s org.
No, it is not bigoted because there is not one country on earth where a biological woman is paid the same or has the same opportunities as a man. It is this way everywhere. Just because a few of us were promoted over others, does not mean we are close to equal as a class.
Men can supports us by supporting our right to meet without men and have conversations that are not about them. Women do not like the policing of their conversations, and their voices are being killed.
Within a woman’s org, there can be a refocus on:
Sexual assault/rape survivors,
Domestic violence survivors,
Exiting sex work survivors
Adult Child abuse survivors
Adult women’s reproduction rights
+ many of things intersect, and we find out where we ended up in this system that discourages us from talking and discovering our true natures as humans.
^ Gay men/males are not into all that female shit, unless it is a fetish, and in that case, victim-protection rights come first.
Some guys use the excuse that they belong with rape victims bc they were raped and 99% say it was a woman. Don’t believe it. They seem to bring it up to quiet down women that object to him being there to listen to rape stories. This is used as an excuse to force women’s sympathy, so he can get off. Explain how male perpetrators often beat women or hurt them badly/kill them, A female’s worse fear is not rape, it is getting killed by a man over his sexual conquest. Men do not experience that at the hands of women, so it is suspicious when a man declares he was raped by a female and wants to yell and fight with rape victims that are there for help..
We all need to meet with out men to get these issues back on track.
I thought of a simple charity of collecting sterile, unused pads
to ship to poor women in third world nations, and yes, to women here in the US. How any times, you as a woman were without the money to buy pads? Our gynecologic healthcare does not recognize the need for sanitary napkins as a necessary medical supply dealing with woman’s reproduction, even though the health of your period is important to creating other humans. Maybe we can make this a world wide thing? ;)
What a project that would be. Only women would give a shit about it.
In India, I heard about women using rags, a ‘red’ sock, and corn husks[thats gotta hurt], even newspaper. In the US, Women have used waded up paper towels taped to their underwear, or what ever they could find when the money was low enough. Cotton rolled in TP annyone?
Where is our right to reproductive dignity or reproductive hygiene?
That is where the humans are coming from.
Men cry that their dick cant stay hard, and everyone pitches in to put Viagra on the market. Women get FGM in the Middle east/Africia, we are told to leave the house while on periods in some of India, because it is still considered a dirty process, along with giving birth!
Texas state leaders made coathanger jokes about our forced -parental rights being taken away. Women have been dying from the Victorian times all the way to the 1970s over botched abortions given by plumbers and guys that had no idea what they were doing..but women want to trust men.
These guys scream & cry to save every child, yet they call the women terrible mothers for not being able to afford children they were forced to give birth to.
We need to get back on track.
