Trump Wants Abuse Program Fund Cut- Valentine’s March Planned

Donald Trump’s latest stunt is planning on cutting funding for domestic violence victims.

Low blow, Mr. President.

This article lists a few programs that will lose out if he gets his way.

Domestic violence programs are already very underfunded, and often shelters do not have enough beds to house survivors who flee.

Some feminists and internet users are planning a widespread protest calling on Donald Trump to buck up and support women for a change, and to spread awareness about woman abuse, how to spot it, and where to get help.

The weekend before Valentine’s Day is a great date because women who attend and get educated about warning signs, hotlines, and shelter facilities can bring what they know to a Valentine’s Day date they go on.

Help us spread the word about the march, especially if you can’t attend!
Also, please check out these eye opening quotes on abuse.

Barbara Streisand Criticizes Misogyny in Israel

I’ve heard people say Barbra Streisand is outspoken and annoying.  Well, perhaps this is why,  People who are outspoken about unfair things are annoying, all right.  Annoying to the ones doing them!  Keep going, Barbra!


http://omg.yahoo.com/news/israel-streisand-criticizes-treatment-women-183759878.html

I read a very strange article by someone named Brice Taylor who claims to have been a sex slave for a bevy of famous stars, singers, and politicians.  She claims Barbra Streisand was sexually abused by men high up in the entertainment industry.  I won’t shut out the possibility of this idea at all.

Men Don’t Know Any Better! Boo Hoo!

 

I am not one to blame women- especially feminists- for the troubles misogyny has brought, but I am far from being the type of “feminist” who is not at all critical of the actions of any woman simply because she is a woman.

 

I take it very seriously when people hold women to the same standards as men, while they know women must deal with more oppression and mental skewering.  However, I do know an Uncle Tom, or an Auntie Tom, when I see them.  That is to say, I know how to spot the difference between a woman who truly is brainwashed or emotionally beaten into supporting men, male-defending, and patriarchy……and a woman who supports these things because she is a dishonest bully-defender, a female Quisling.

Feminism means siding with women.  All women.  But it does not mean pretending that if a woman does something wrong- like supporting a bully consciously and of her own will- that we support the action and choose to hold her on the same moral plane as every other woman in this battle.

For example, women who claim: “Men are taught by the media to rape and beat and harass women, so they can’t help it”/ “It’s social conditioning!  Their widdle brains can’t fight back against it!” should be scrutinized, if not given a much more marginal place in our movement.  As much as I think the feminist movement is in place to help all women, this does not mean that I do not judge women whom I know are siding with the enemy without having been brainwashed to do so.  Unfortunately, the majority of  “college feminists” support this outlook: “they can’t help it”.  Bullshit.  These traitors need to be reminded that they are not helping our movement.

 

But let us not forget that the enemies in this case are not the Auntie Toms, but the men who are choosing to conform to a patriarchal edict so they can rape and oppress us!  May we fight them until the day we die!

It’s a Trap

Marriage is a trap.
Babies and giving birth is a trap.
Monogamy is a trap.
Heterosexuality is a trap.
Religion is a trap.
“Love” is a trap.
Patriarchy is a trap.
Obedience is a trap.
Tradition is a trap.
Capitalism is a trap.
Society and culture are a trap.

Women in all cultures are trapped by patriarchy.

Marriage traps women by keeping a woman stuck to one man. She must serve and obey him in most cultures. She is a slave. She cannot find another husband if her husband is abusive.

Women who take care of babies do not have time to work or enjoy their lives. Women who have babies must take care of them and cannot leave their house or husband. A woman might favor her son over other women. She is therefore stuck to the male gender. Giving birth too often makes women tired so they cannot escape a bad husband or housework. There are too many people in the world. Giving birth makes the world too crowded.

Monogamy means a person may only have one spouse. They are usually not allowed to divorce that spouse. This means if a woman is married to a bad man, she cannot get rid of him. If every person is allowed to have a spouse, then men who are bad, lazy, or selfish can have a wife. If monogamy was abolished, women would be able to share the few good men in a society. They would be allowed to ignore the bad ones.

Heterosexuality forces women to marry men instead of women. But most men are selfish, sexist, lazy, and tyrannical. If women were allowed to marry other women we would have happier marriages. A few women would have sex with males to get pregnant and then get rid of the men. Isn’t that what they do to us?

Most religions believe women are inferior to men. They tell women to obey their husbands and have children. They say women are sinful and that their bodies are dirty. When religion is controlled by men, it benefits men. Most religions tell people to accept bad things that happen to them. Men do bad things to women and tell women God will be happy if women accept the abuse.

People tell women that if they love a man they will be happy. They tell women that if they love a man, he will treat her kindly. They say that if a woman loves a man, she won’t mind his bad behavior. Books and movies and songs are written about “love”, romance, and marriage. They try to brainwash women into marrying men.

Patriarchy is the worldwide system of law, religion, government, economics, medicine, and culture that benefit men. Law, religion, money, the government, doctors, and culture work together to benefit men and to control women.

*In many countries, the laws benefit only men. If a man and a woman commit the same crime, the man is punished less. Sometimes, the law forces women to accept less money for working at the same job as a man. In some countries, like Saudi Arabia, women are not allowed to drive cars.

*Religions say that women are inferior to men. They also say that God wants women to obey men. Since no one can see or hear God, makes can pretend God said anything they want him to say. (Maybe God isn’t a “he”. Maybe it’s a “she”!)

*Governments punish women who do not obey unfair rules. They are modeled after patriarchal families- the dictator at the top, the peasants (children and women) at the bottom. They must obey the father or dictator.

*Doctors make women take the same medicines as men even though their bodies are often different. This makes women sick. Male doctors control and regulate birth because they are afraid of women’s power to give birth. Unnatural births cause pain for women. Psychologists diagnose women as “crazy” when they dare to speak against patriarchy. Women who are beaten by their husbands are diagnosed as “hysterical.”

*Movies and books portray women as depressed if they do not have a husband. Clothing styles women wear make it hard for women to move and breathe. Art portrays women as weak and submissive. Magazines tell women they must be beautiful to be loved by society.

“The good woman is obedient,” most societies say. This is not true. They are trying to trick women into becoming slaves to males. Obedience is never a good thing. If you obey someone unconditionally, you will do evil if they command you to.

“Our culture must not change its traditions.” This is stupid. What if slavery or murder was the tradition of a society? Should people continue to kill people and own slaves? “Women must obey because it is tradition.” This is evil.

Capitalism makes rich people richer. It makes poor people poorer. Most rich people are male. Most women are poor. Capitalism allows rich men to take money from poor women.

Society makes unmarried women feel ashamed. Society makes ugly women feel ashamed. Many cultures tell women they should be depressed if they do not conform.

If we want to liberate women, we must fight against all these things. Do not let patriarchy oppress you!

Free Pussy Riot — Kill Patriarchy

Please visit this website after you read the article.

http://freepussyriot.org/ru/about-ru

Pussy Riot is a musical group of several women who are feminists.  They are against oppression and injustice.  When they performed a protest prayer inside a cathedral, they were arrested and taken to jail.  They have been locked in jail for months, and haven’t seen their children. They may be sent to prison for seven years……for offending religious people and a politician.

The trial of Pussy Riot is reminiscent of the witch trials in medieval Europe.  Women who are speaking out against the abuse of humanity are being called “obnoxious” and “offensive” and “dangerous”.  They are being tortured by being denied food and water and sleep.  Their trial is like a medieval inquisition.  Neo-Nazis are even accusing Pussy Riot of being Jewish infiltrators!  (  http://wakeupfromyourslumber.com/comment/48564  use  http://translate.google.com/#en/ru/  )

They have been in jail since March.  They are being kept in a cage, like animals.  They have not seen their children since their arrest.  This is ridiculous.  That means they were away from their children for 5 months.  That is unacceptable.  These women are political prisoners.  They did not hit anybody.  They did not destroy property or artwork in the church.  They did not commit slander (Putin actually IS bad!)  They did not defraud anyone of their money.  So why are they being held?  Why it is necessary to keep them as political prisoners?

The answer: they challenged patriarchy.  Their songs are a challenge against patriarchy.  Their name is a challenge against patriarchy.  What was their crime?  Offending Vladimir Putin, who is a male.  Even if Pussy Riot did not mention feminism specifically, they challenged what males love the most: authority and control.  Though their own husbands seem to be supportive and loving, most men in Russia and in the world are horrible and their patriarchy needs to be erased.   Even though the judge is a woman, it is still the system of patriarchy that is oppressing Pussy Riot.  The woman judge is a tool and the patriarchy is using her against other women.  Patriarchy hires women to help oppress other women so that it can blame women for their own oppression.

Putin is trying to stay in power until 2024.  He is obviously scared about what happened to the dictators Egypt and Libya.  He does not want to be removed.

Where was the jail term for the Pope when he said women should not be priests?  He offended women, so where are the police who must arrest him?  Are the religious people’s “hurt feelings” causing as much pain as being a woman who is sent to jail?  Is having your religious feelings hurt as painful as being forced to give birth after you are raped?  Is it as painful as being told you are sinful and evil?

We all know Vladimir Putin is a moron and a former KGB agent who would rather see Russia be Communist again, rather than a free country.  He is popular among neo-Nazis I have met.  He believes punishment and authoritarianism are the ways to solve problems.  Aren’t most men similar, especially Caucasian men?  This is why radical feminism is part of the solution.  It recognizes and attacks bad masculine behavior.

Alexei Nikiforov, the federal cock-sucker (I meant to say “prosecutor”!), says Pussy Riot deserves to go to jail because they “abused God.”  Did he forget about how people who are not rich are being abused?  Did he forget about how women are being abused?  Children?  People who are homosexual?  People who oppose war?  Children who are being sexually abused by priests?  Perhaps he has amnesia and should not be allowed to continue working at his job.

How can they arrest someone for “being decadent”?  People must be arrested for being decadent?  This means all the political officials (mostly males) should be in maximum security prisons for 500 years each!!

A seven year jail term is ridiculous. Many people in the United States who rob or attack people do not have to spend seven years in jail. Yet these women are being arrested because they oppose a politician.  (We now know who we must NOT vote for in the next election!)

We all know this: Pussy Riot would have never been punished so harshly if they were all men.
Police, we spit on you!  Putin, we spit on you! Catholic and Orthodox Churches, and all male-dominated religions, we spit on you, too!  Patriarchy, we spit on you most of all!

A verdict will take place on Friday.  We must do more than pray and hope for the women’s release.  We need to fight for change in our world.  If we can, we must protest outside the courthouse where the women are being tried for a “crime” they did not commit.  Big things have small beginnings.  Perhaps we can use this tragedy to start a worldwide revolution of women.  We will overthrow patriarchy in every country, and we will dismantle every religion and culture that pushes women down!

Free Pussy Riot!
