Things I Cannot UN-Read


06/18/2013 by syrbal-labrys

I am a feminist, ok? I don’t care how many other feminists disown me because I am also a humanist who considers men to be people with the same blend of mixed motivations and reason or lack thereof as females of the species. I do not, for instance, consider consensual sex between a he and a she rape “by definition” because “penetration” occurs, for instance and consider that a ragged fucking fringe idea. I admit, I also get a real pain with ideas sometimes referred to as “victim feminism” because it seems to feed a helplessness that I don’t approve of for EITHER gender. And it makes the males the automatic villains, which troubles me because, oh, I don’t know…something about “innocent until proven guilty” gods-damn-it.

But all that said? Sometimes I DO completely understand the reason feminists and others just throw up their hands and say “Oh, fuck it, men SUCK and not in a good way.” Because when an allegedly normally intelligence endowed man wants to make abortion illegal after a certain stage because he believes the male fetus is capable of masturbation at that point? Yeah…hand me my Amazon gear and put up walls. I despair, I tell you, I despair. (Tho’ the hilarious snarky comments at that post almost make me dare to hope again!)

    They need to be born so we can tell them to stop doing that.

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
