Things I’ve Noticed About Patriarchy and its Sicknesses

-Women are called “sensitive” by men because men don’t want to admit their horrific behavior towards women causes women to be unhappy.

*
-Many men want to liberate women for the same reason monkeys want to liberate bananas from trees.  

*
– Racism suddenly becomes unfashionable when men find out they can bond with men of other races to the detriment of women. 

*
-The “right” to have sex means an underclass of people is obligated to provide it. 

*
-If prostitution is liberating, why aren’t half of prostitutes men? You get money for having sex. Men are supposed to like sex and they’re supposed to like money. Come on, guys! Deal breaker!

*
-Men trade their humanity for acceptance into the boys’ club. If turned away, they demand-still soulless and soiled with the mud they chose to roll in- that women let them back into the Eden they cast themselves out of. When women shut the door, they are called the Devil and Eden Hell. 

*
-Marriage and pregnancy are the ball and chain patriarchy uses to keep women imprisoned. Men are drafted to act as the jailers. Men who refuse are traitors. 

*
-The unwillingness to subjugate women gets a man kicked out of the boys’ club. This includes unwillingness to lie to women about men and men’s abilities, especially their genitals and their genitals’ abilities.

*
-The Rock and Roll movement, especially the late 60s and early 70s genres, promoted bestial sexuality, dark and esoteric occultism, and lack of structure, responsibility, and safety in favor of Dionysian “values,” which overwhelmingly benefit rapists and not women.

*
-Why are a surprising amount of gay men misogynistic? It’s obvious. Gay men are still men. It’s patriarchy, not hetero-archy.

*
-Many men don’t really like PIV- or any type of sex, for that matter. They like the feeling of phallically conquering something, perhaps including, as secondary benefit, exotic physical sensations to flavor the process.

*
-Emmett Till was the black victim of a ghastly beating and unjust murder which were undertaken against him because he whistled in a sexual manner at a white woman…but has anyone stopped to think why it took the murder of a sexual harasser to stir white men’s anger?

*
-At least men used to be cultured. Then women gained access to literature, philosophy, and the arts, and men suddenly didn’t want to play with those anymore. 

*
-The male dominated libertarian revolutions care about freedom all right: the freedom to do whatever they want…which coincidentally happens to be problematic and oppressive toward women, black people, gays, Native Americans, etc.

*
-Do men ever get pressured to go to the doctor’s for erection check ups, or ejaculation control, or napkins for semen “protection”? Why aren’t men hounded to visit an andrologist from age 16 on? Is it, perchance, that the penis is considered perfect?

*
-The lesbian and gay movements have a vastly different underlying motive. Lesbians are fighting to end social oppression and intolerance; the gay movement is fighting a cock block. 

*
-The great catch-22: Are masculized men homoerotic because they love men or because they hate women?

*
-In the French Revolution the theme was “Liberty, equality, and fraternity,” and the word fraternity is very heavily one of male bonding. Liberty for men from feminine like responsibilities and ties, equality (to predicate bonding) among all males, and fraternity meaning loyalty to men of all creeds and classes and to the cause of above said virtues, which included smashing anything “feminine” that (oppressive or not) at least promoted responsibility and sociality. 

*
-Male dominated societies always call menstrual blood “dirty”. But notice their attitude towards other bodily fluids- diarrhea, vomit, semen, spit, bile, earwax, pimple pus- they never consider those substances uniquely disgusting. Only the things men cannot produce are considered inhumanly dirty. 

*
-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.

*
-The act of classifying sexuality as hetero or homo is based on a frame that appeals to masculine ideals (as defined by patriarchy): you love or are attracted to people based on their genitals. It’s a very genital-oriented view of attraction. “Do you like cock or cunt?”

*
-Men, in general at least, have underlying homoerotic and phallophilic desires. Yet because of heterosexual edicts a man can’t come out and ask other men for sex. Men, as a class, must therefore wordlessly agree to establish a situation in which homosexual behavior or at least titillation is unavoidable: the locker room. 

Although most men have underlying homoerotic tendencies, no man may ask outright for homosexual contact. A request stems from desire; desire signifies need; need signifies weakness, since, in men’s minds, need means ability to be manipulated via that need, and said manipulation could mean the needy individual being forced, if he is desperate enough, to accept being penetrated- being made a woman. 

Therefore, communal male nudity must be ritualized, normalized, ordained from above, expected, forced by circumstance or tradition, and thrust upon men, who would otherwise have to request it and risk being branded as “needy” and hence wiling to take a subordinate role. 

Communal nudity also establishes generic male bonding and allows men to simultaneously perceive the differences among men (underscoring their supposed individuality) and, on a peculiar flip side of this coin, giving them false ideas about “a normal man’s body” (false due to the fact that many men, particularly those with “inadequate” genitals or abilities, do not use locker rooms). Men use this supposedly accurate knowledge about “normal men’s bodies” (and the access to knowledge about all male genitals, behaviors, and personalities the locker room supposedly gives them) to tell women what men are. This is usually lacking in any mention of male inabilities or physical/psychological/behavioral similarities to women. Women cannot know about men who eschew masculinity or who are physically not oppressor material.

Why My Site’s 2dn Highest # of Visitors Is From India

The largest number of visitors to my blog is from the Unites States.  The second highest number is from India.  I do have some blog posts in four different Indian languages: Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, and Gujarati.  India is a highly populated country.  Do these things explain fully why so many visitors from India come to my blog, as opposed to, say, the UK, or Germany (I have articles in German as well)?

Personally, I think the reason so many Indian users visit my blog is because they believe it is about sex.  India is one of those countries in which men are “sex starved”.  Because, you know, sex is like food.   If you don’t have it, you die.  In India, sex is more taboo than in the Western World, and men “need” to visit online sites in order to “get” sex.

How do I know they are searching my site for sex?  Because of the key words- lovely exotic Indian languages, reminiscent of a rajah dressed in rich robes, his red-jeweled headpiece bedazzled by the late afternoon Delhi sun, putting a golden quill to a paper and swirling a voluptuous word onto the delicate page, indecipherable to the eyes of uncultured Western adventurers: “Vagina,” “sex films,” “penis in anus,” “naked movies.”

Gorgeous.  India is a rich culture with a strong history and a tradition in which women were often honored.  Indian men, please act like it, or leave my blog.  Otherwise, I’m kind of happy you waste five minutes of your time on a radical feminist blog.  Perhaps it will take some time out from your quest to quench your so -called “sex-starvedness.”

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!

Women in Pakistan- Escape! (English)

For Women: Violence in Pakistan

Women in Pakistan do not have economic, social, civil and political rights. Women are denied the right to education, and also the right to control their marriage and divorce. Girls and women who are born into poverty and are sold as sex slaves.  They are also forced into marriage, prostitution or work exploitation such as bonded labor. This proves there is discrimination against women and girls in Pakistan.

Pakistani women endure domestic violence and physical abuse, which includes rape, acid throwing, burning, and “honor” killings.  This is still widespread in Pakistan. Acid-throwing is increasing. The government has not restricted the sale of acid.  It has not punished those who use it to injure women. “Honor” killings continue daily.

Women and girls are sold into sexual slavery.  Pakistan is a country of origin and a transit country for the selling of women for domestic labor, forced marriage and prostitution. This form of slavery is organized by crime networks that exist in all of South Asia. Both local and trafficked women are killed if they refuse to earn money in prostitution. Forced marriage of young girls continue. Even though slavery is illegal in Pakistan, girls and women continue to be traded to settle debts or conflicts. The sale of girls and women in markets is reported in underdeveloped or poor areas such as parts of Balochistan.

Physical abuse of women in police custody continues often in Pakistan. Despite promises of police reform, police continue to use torture to intimidate, harass and humiliate detainees.  They do this to extract money or information.

Almost no positive changes have taken place for women’s rights. The government in Pakistan still fails to provide enough protection for abused women in the custody of the state, and in the family and community. In fact, the number of victims of violence appears to have risen. There are very few laws to help women who are escaping honor killing and other domestic violence.  There is a lack of safe houses for women.  There is an absence of reliable laws to save women from parents who do not accept women’s rights to freedom of choice in marriage. There is an absence of reliable and prompt protection by the state.

This is not acceptable.

Even though some progress has been made, much remains to be done. More women are aware of their rights, thanks to the Pakistani women’s rights groups, working women, and the human rights movement.

However, the killers of Samia Sarwar  and many others remain free. ( http://www.amnestyusa.org/women  I apologize it is in English)

The Parliamentary act that was supposed to explicitly outlaw “honor” crimes did not pass. In one survey by the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, it was reported that in the year 2000, almost 90 percent of women did not know they had the right to divorce.  This includes women who were highly educated!

The government of Pakistan has made general statements on the protection of women’s rights, including condemning “honor” crimes.  The Pakistan Council of Islamic Ideology was asked whether “honor” killings are lawful according to Islam. It replied in a letter in the year 2000

“Although sexual immorality is one of the major sins according to Islam for which Islam has prescribed very severe punishment, nobody is allowed to punish others on the behalf of this law. Willful homicide, no matter what the the motive, is the same as murder.”

However, legal and procedural changes have not occurred.  Human rights organizations are calling for repeal of laws that discriminate against women.  One example is the Zina Ordinance and the Evidence Act.  Another is the Qisas and Diyat law. This allows the family of a murder victim to forgive the perpetrator and save him from prosecution.

This is not acceptable.
If women are being killed by acid or are being forced into sexual slavery and marriage, then they need to escape Pakistan until the country accepts women’s rights.
.
This is a blog in English (again, I apologize) which is called Escape Pakistan:
It was written in the year 2009, so I do not know if the information is still good.  I will try to translate some of it, although the writer probably speaks Urdu if you message them over the internet:
Hello, reader!
 
The purpose of this blog is to list all the information required to escape Pakistan and pursue a dignified and secure life.
 
I have listed procedures I had to do to apply for my immigration. I got:
  1. Birth certificate
  2. Passport in Lahore
  3. Police certificate
  4. Driving license
  5. Notarizing documents
  6. Marriage certificate registeration
  7. Verification through Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan
  8. Degree validation through HEC
and more…
 
Some of the procedures I did not go through for them. I would add personal accounts from my close circle. These processes are applicable and valid for Lahore.
 
Also, you can contribute your story, which I would publish here, to assist more and more people.
 

Have a nice day.

How to get a Birth Certificate

Recommended Requirements:

1. Birth certificate form
2. Father’s NIC
3. Mother’s NIC
Your NIC would not be considered since birth certificate application is submitted on behalf of your parents.
NOTE: Make sure you were registered within a week of your birth. You need to verify that from your parents.
This registration date (Tareekh-e-Indraaj) is very very important. If this date does not exist in the Government’s database it is a problem. And for every problem there is a cost. So be prepared.
1. Go to your area’s Nazim office. (If you weren’t born in Cantt area) 2. Provide them with any of the above documents.
Cost: Rs. 1200/- (But a lower price like 800-900 is also a valid fee)
Time: Within a day or 2

Other:
1. Go to City Town Hall. The best place for all records and information. View Town Hall / City Hall in a larger map

Ask for directions under the pepal tree and person there would point you to the right person.
3. That person would collect all required documents, verify if your registration date exists in the computer records and inform you.
4. If all goes well, you will have your birth certificate in:
Cost: Rs. 1200/-
Time: 3-4 Days
NOTE: If registration date is not found, the cost would go up 2-3 times but it is still negotiable.
Following is what the birth certificate now looks like:

How to get a Police Character Certificate

Getting a police certificate in Lahore is amazingly easy and simple.
Here are simple steps:
Requirement:
1. 4 passport sized photographs
2. An application to SSP Police explaining where you intend to go, and all the address that you have lived. (this may be written by hand) 3. Valid Passport

4. NADRA National Identification Card
5. Police Certificate Form, available at SSP office STEP 1. Put your information on the Police Certificate Form and Go to SSP Office, Lahore. Location is near Government College, Lahore, Multan Road:

View SSP Office in a larger map

STEP 2. After entering the premises, turn right and proceed to a big room.

STEP 3. Give them the Police Certificate Form, photos, and application. The personal would give you 4-5 days time. That is the normal time and it can be reduced to 1 day if you have approach.

STEP 4. A police officer would visit you at your home in a few days (he might call before coming). He would fill Police Certificate Form by asking you questions.

STEP 5. Go to SSP office after 4-5 days, and go to the same room.

STEP 6. Find your application and get it stamped and submitted to a batch. This batch would appear in front of SSP Lahore.

STEP 7. Make a queue and go to SSP’s office, who would call your name and sign the certificate.

STEP 8. You have a Police Certificate for immigration.

How to get a Pakistani Passport

This post applies to Pakistani citizens residing in Lahore who have woken up soon enough to realize that escape is important.
 
Pakistani passport is now digitized . This means that unfortunate people like me who had old passport would be required to make it again. But there is no special route for people who have old passport.  The same process applies.
 
Things you need:
1. Around Rs. 3000/- cash.
2. Identification card with a few photocopies.
 
Here is the list of steps involved:
 
STEP 1) Around 9 in the morning proceed to Barkat Market in Garden Town as below:
 
 
Here you can find National Bank of Pakistan:
 
View National Bank, Barket Market in a larger map
Either
a) Find a bank guard outside giving empty forms to be filled and deposited on the booth outside. yes it is a long line!!!
Time: 10-15 Minutes
Cost: Rs. 2230 something passport fee + Rs. 70 (negotiable) agent fee = Rs. 2300
OR
b) Speak to an agent (men sitting on wooden benches) to get you the form and pay the dues while you sit in the shade.
Time: depending on the queue.
Cost: Rs. 2230 something passport fee
 
Get a stamped receipt which is valid for like 2-3 months.
 
Now you can either go home or move to the Passport office.
 
STEP 2) Passport office is located at the back of Himayat-e-Islam college for women in Garden Town, Lahore. It is a walking distance from National Bank or Barkat market. Car park is a big problem. I would recommend to park it in front of a college on the same road as passport office (oh and its free). Find the office location below:
 
View Passport Office in a larger map
 
Here you can:
 
Either
a. Show the police dude the receipt and enter the premises to find a queue to the right. Some part of the queue is in shade others are not so lucky.
OR
b. Find agents outside the premises. They can be found roaming rather stalking for clients or people sitting on benches. Agent would ask for Rs. 700+ (totally negotiable (recommended!) ) . Bargain, and whatever rocks your boat finalize. Time 15 minutes wait in your car or under shade in lush green park.
 
Output of step 2 should be a digital token. This token is everything do not loose this! This token would also have a date on which you have to visit passport office again.
 
STEP 3) At the passport office. Enter the premises and proceed straight forward into a big room with a lot of people. Luckily this room is air conditioned and have enough seats to get you seated. No agents are involved in this step but approach applies (if you have highly ranked someone at a highly ranked seat). Here everything goes in sequence. Your token number is called out and displayed (if I remember).
So the steps are simple 4 booths and you have to go through each of them, in sequence.
 
i. Get your fingers scanned.
ii. Get your digital photographed taken (yeah finally you dont need to take
those passport size photos)
iii. Get your demographics verified (vigilance is required there may be
discrepancies). This data is pulled from NADRA.
iv. Get a date from some officer. Don’t know why this booth exists. Nothing much to
do there just go the officer he sees you and assign a date to pick your
passport up.
 
Go home.
 
Whatever the date is mentioned to collect your passport there is a high (98%) chance it would be late 3-4 days. Mine was late a week and I found that out after 3 visits.
So you go the passport office on mentioned date + cushion days. Show the police dude your receipt. Enter the premises and move to the extreme right, past the queue getting tokens. There you would find a booth and some people already there claiming their passports. Passport would be handed out in batch of 10 so the sooner you initiate, if not already done, the batch the better. Batch would contain your receipt. And if your passport is ready you can collect it by showing you original ID card else they would assign you a new date.
 
There you go, you have your digital passport. Verify the information on in since sometimes it gets mis-printed.
 

This information is valid as of May 2009. I highly doubt there would have been any change in the process/system.

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!

Visiting Prostitutes is Degrading…For the John?

http://www.rolereboot.org/sex-and-relationships/details/2012-07-why-we-should-teach-young-men-about-the-sex-industry

Basic summary:

-A woman friend of mine took me to them, so I’m not as responsible!
-It was scary and intimidating, especially when they made the girls line up…it was scary for ME!
-It was humiliating FOR ME because she inspected me for disease (even though I could leave anytime)
-I was happy afterwards so it’s not degrading, herp a derp!
-Some brothels don’t treat prostitutes badly, so it’s OK!! they didn’t feel victimized.
-Your male relative might visit a prostitute in the future, so let’s make sure johns’ behavior is normalized!
-We need to condemn people who take advantage of women forced into it, but that’s not all prostitutes!

John* is a writer by trade, a frustrated rock star in his spare time, a social media junkie, and a committed atheist.” [how did i guess?  walking talking stereotype]

.

To be fair, I do think it’s possible for a person to choose sex work as a valid choice, but it’s just too damn hard to tell whether a particular woman did or did not make a meaningful choice when she’s living under a patriarchy.  Still, my guess is that sex work jobs that are done by those who legitimately choose to do it would still be low in number, even without a patriarchy.

And as much as I want to think he’s a nice guy, this “John” fellow smacks of being an apologist for all sorts of things.

*well, if the name fits!

Paul Ryan is a Piece of Shit

.

Paul Ryan is a piece of shit.

Paul Ryan is a piece of fucking shit.

Paul Ryan is a piece of mother fucking shit.

Paul Ryan is a mother fucker.

Paul Ryan is a douchebag.

Paul Ryan is a fricking cunt.

Paul Ryan is a dick.

Paul Ryan is a cock-sucker.

Paul Ryan deserves to be ass-fucked to death with the stump end of one of his own limbs.

Did I leave anything out?  Okay, moving on.

.

…..According to Jezebel.com, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney’s running mate, sponsored a bill that will theoretically allow rapists to choose whether or not the woman they raped would be forced to bear the child or not.

…..I seriously cannot believe the level of dumb-fuckery involved in this whole idea.  It’s bad enough to force a woman to let her boyfriend or husband make decisions about her body, but to let her rapist make them is a hundred times worse.  It’s even more likely the rapist, rather than the husband, will make decisions which harm her or do not take into account her bodily health, as evidenced by the fact that he chose to harm her body in the first place.

…..He is a criminal, and since when do criminals get to decide what normal humans get to do with their bodies?

…..He may even abuse or rape the child after it is born.

.

…..What is Paul Ryan thinking?  Answer: nothing.  Rape supporters/minimizers do not think.  They hate.  It’s not that they can’t think, or that they don’t know how, or don’t know what’s right and wrong.  It’s that they choose not to think; they don’t care.

…..Ryan has numerous anti-choice and anti-equality stances.  (http://www.thepoliticalguide.com/Profiles/House/Wisconsin/Paul_Ryan/Views/)

…..Paul Ryan’s Sanctity of Human Life Act says that,

(B) the life of each human being begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent, irrespective of sex, health, function or disability, defect, stage of biological development, or condition of dependency, at which time every human being shall have all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood; and

(2) the Congress affirms that the Congress, each State, the District of Columbia, and all United States territories have the authority to protect the lives of all human beings residing in its respective jurisdictions.

.

…..This basically means that a woman is not in control.  And since pro-life bills allow fathers to force mothers to give birth, what this means is that the door is open for rapists to force women they rape to keep the baby.  And don’t tell me “but that’s such a small probability!  Paul probably never thought of that when he passed the bill!”  If our legislators and elected officials are thinking hard about the bills they pass, this issue would have come up during the discussions about this bill.

…..If you are as outraged as I am, you are free to call Paul Ryan, mother fucker, at the following numbers:

Why women are called “too sensitive”

Women are called “too sensitive” by men because men don’t want to admit that their horrific behavior towards women causes women to be more often unhappy and irritable.

Men know this is true.  It’s not a question of  “teaching” them, or of men simply having a different viewpoint and “not realizing” they are saying something untrue.  It’s done totally on purpose by men, for the benefit of men.  It is because men do not want to take responsibility for hurting women.

The whole schtick about women’s periods making them irrational was invented only as an excuse to shut women up when there is no logical reason to prove them wrong. (Oftentimes, it is a complete mystery as to why the man disagrees with the woman in the first place, regardless of what excuse he makes to “prove” her wrong).  Even if some women have problems with PMS, it still doesn’t prove that all women do, nor does it prove that this is the only thing that can possibly upset them.

It still doesn’t excuse you from asking the person why they are upset, and certainly doesn’t mean you can pretend they are upset from PMS when you definitely do know the reason you have upset them, which is usually something you have done to them yourself, out of meanness.

It’s no different than when they said Negroes were always hysterical.  They knew it wasn’t true.   They just didn’t want to admit that they had some hand in making the person upset and in ruining the person’s life.  It’s not a matter of “oh, whites/men/etc just need to be educated…”  They are doing it on purpose.  They can’t not realize what is upsetting a woman/black person if it would upset them too.  It’s not something they can possibly ignore even if they tried.  It’s physically impossible.   You can’t make something up on the spot that you never believed before without realizing yuor’e doing it.

You also can’t go from knowing 100% of people hate something to magically thinking that only some of them hate it.  And that doesn’t explain why you would magically think any one specific group of people hated it with absolutely no prompting whatsoever.  No man just happens to start thinking “Gee, only women hate [bad thing],” for no reason if he’s never thought that before, especially not COINCIDENTALLY five seconds after he chooses to do [bad thing] to a woman.  (what’s the likelihood he would start believing it just then?) He’s OBVIOUSLY just trying to pretend it only bothers women for the same reason bullies pretend only kids are bothered by their behavior- to make it look like the victim is over sensitive.

It’s a lie.  Not a “mistake”.  Not an “accident”.  A lie.  You can’t lie by accident, and you can’t subconsciously, accidentally begin believing something that you never have before, unless you had some kind of external prompting.  It was done on purpose.  Things don’t just pop into the mind like that, especially not at such a coincidental time.

99.9% of the time- possibly 100% of the time- when a man claims a woman is being “womanly” or “hysterical”, he has seen what has caused her to be upset and knows full well that men would be upset by this as well- i.e., that is it not something that would upset people only of one gender; that it is not a gender issue.

However, since he hates women, he decides to make it a gender issue.  He decides to tell her she’s acting “womanly” or to say that “girls are always crying”, not because he didn’t know that the thing doesn’t only upset women, but because he doesn’t care.

It’s not that men don’t know that women will be upset by the things they do, it’s that they don’t care.

After all, most of the things men accuse women of being “feminine” for disliking, are things which they would dislike themselves, and which they never considered to be things which women in specific disliked up until the moment they chose to do it to a woman.

For example, Man A decides to interrupt Jessica.  Man A already knows ALL people don’t like being interrupted, and he has never heard of not liking being interrupted being a gender issue before.  Yet, when he says to Jessica, “Gee, I guess women don’t like being interrupted,” we’re all supposed to believe he suddenly started associating it with gender.  Even though it’s quite clear he is just pretending it’s a gender issue in order to:

A:  pretend it’s something only women dislike (so he can pretend he wouldn’t dislike it himself, and that therefore he didn’t realize she wouldn’t like it)

B: pretend the person who was the victim of his behavior is only upset because they are uber-sensitive, not because what he did was wrong

C: turn the situation into a gender argument, because he knows he will be able to count on any men nearby to support him- even if they know full well it isn’t a gender question

This is because when he makes a comment about gender, the other men take it as a cue-word, a cue-word meaning “support me, the male, no matter what, even if it means gaslighting and lying to his victim/s)”.  The men nearby hear him talk about gender, and they immediately offer opposition to the female, even if they were listening to the whole argument and know that she wasn’t doing anything feminine OR doing anything wrong, and that he is only pretending the issue is about gender to get their support and make it easier to push his opponent down.

The female or other victim is then confused because when she sees them all turn their support towards him, and claim he is in the right, she cannot figure out why, and is left wondering why they would support him.  She wonders if she is missing something, if they all see something she doesn’t see- something proving her wrong.  She desperately tries to figure out what this proof is, why they all think she is wrong, and why she doesn’t see it herself.  Until she realizes- it’s like the Emperor’s New Clothes.  They are only pretending they think she’s wrong.  Such cruelty is never rivalled in any other type of torture but gaslighting.

Men need to absolutely be arrested and possibly jailed for this type of behavior.  Free speech is no longer an issue here.  Free speech is a male thing, since it allows males to verbally abuse females without punishment.  That’s why rednecks and Teabaggers always go crazy when free speech is threatened.  They are patriarchal.  (Recall a hundred or so years ago when they also wanted the freedom to beat their wives- just reminding you in case they try to make the point that free speech is somehow “different” than the freedom of action- they are only saying it’s different so they won’t get the privilege taken away).

There are some men who don’t act like this, but, like I always say, those are the men who are beaten, stuffed in lockers, called pussies or fags or girls or homos or sissies and are brutalized on a daily basis.  They might as well not even be called “male”.

However, I usually don’t like to spend too much time discussing whether or not there are good males, because that would be like a black rights blog wasting all its time talking about whether or not there are good whites; it’s like saying that being fair to whites is more important than fighting for black rights, and that proving whites- even some whites- are good is just as important as proving blacks are good.  It’s also like saying that a black rights blog should be judged solely on its fairness to whites, even though we know white establishments are never judged solely on how they portray blacks (and also that a black rights blog is the proper place to do it- as if a bicycle shop is the proper place to fix a computer)!

What is Radical Feminism?

Radical feminism is a form of feminism which believes patriarchy needs to be dismantled, and that women cannot work inside its system to be free.  Patriarchy is the system some men have put in place for the benefit of all men, and it includes the legal system, medical system, media, and religions.

 

Radical feminism does not believe patriarchy hurts men as much as it hurts women, just as racism didn’t hurt whites as much as blacks.  That’s why it’s called bigotry- because it’s unfair.  That’s the point.  It’s not about achieving equality with men under the current system (which is patriarchy and is SET UP so men win).  It’s about dismantling it and preserving the happiness of innocent people.   This is why “equality” never works, because misogynistic men’s intent is not to rig the game to get more money, power, etc, and then they’ll be happy, but to attack women; the system is just a tool of that intent.  “Equality” never works because it’s a war, not a race.

 

 
I want to suggest to you that a commitment to sexual equality with males, that is, to uniform character as of motion or surface, is a commitment to becoming the rich instead of the poor, the rapist instead of the raped, the murderer instead of the murdered.  I want to ask you to make a different commitment – a commitment to the abolition of poverty, rape and murder; that is, a commitment to ending the system of oppression called patriarchy; to ending the male sexual model itself.”
-Andrea Dworkin “Our Blood”.

In other words, neither men nor women should obey the system.

 

 

 

Radical feminism doesn’t believe bad men “don’t know better”, “suffer under” their own bigotry, or “need to be educated”.  It believes misogynists know exactly what they’re doing when they hurt or discriminate against women and that they use our idiocy (our willingness to think they don’t know any better) to get away with it.   Does a man who kicks his wife because she won’t have sex with him really need to be “educated”, or do you think he already knows kicking ANY person is wrong?  Bullies in any corner of society know exactly what harm they’re doing, and this is why they do it.   The point is to hurt.

 

 

Radical feminism doesn’t believe PIV (penis-inside-vagina) sex is the only way to have sex, or that it should be the default definition of “sex”.  PIV sex is male centric, since during PIV the penis often gets more pleasure than the clitoris (though everyone is an individual and we all have differences among our bodies).  PIV is not necessary for pregnancy, which can be caused by sperm swimming up the vagina from being deposited on the outside (and pregnancy is not the only reason for sex).  The media, doctors, gynecologists, and art portray PIV as the most natural and normal type of sex because it is usually more pleasurable for men, and try to “fix” women who don’t like it (“vaginismus”, etc).
PIV can cause cervical cancer, dryness, soreness, and pain.  It’s the kind of activity that is best done in moderation, if at all.  PIV- the act itself- is more likely to cause pain for the woman than for the man.  Patriarchy, therefore, supports PIV as the “normal” way to have sex, and theorizes that women are the “weaker” and more vulnerable sex because they can be more easily hurt by intercourse than men.  But suppose a woman slammed her clitoris and labia against a man’s testicles- that would hurt.  Yet we don’t hear society calling that act “normal” sex, because the man would be getting hurt in that case.
PIV is often used by domineering or misogynistic men to get women to bond with them- such close contact creates feelings, and if the intercourse is harsh enough, she may have a mild sort of “trauma bond” with the male.  Since society and the media tell women giving men PIV is something that should “liberate” them, or that they should get used to if they want a “normal sex life”, society/the media acts like a sexual predator, coercing women into doing things they might otherwise not want to.

 

Sex-positivism is the idea that having more sex and more kinds of sex is the key to liberation, especially having more sex with men.  It’s not.  What’s liberating about having sex with men?  We’re already expected to do that!  What’s revolutionary about BDSM or sadomasochism?  There’s always been an undercurrent of that in society (sometimes it becomes more mainstream than at other times), and isn’t sex the way masculinity and patriarchy conceive of it already painful and violent?  “Liberating” events like SlutWalk make good points, such as women who are sexually active should not be judged more than men.  But the movements fail to address whether sexual liberation is good for women or not.  For example, surely a woman has as much right to cut herself on the arm as men do, and not be judged for it…but is it good for her to do so?  No.

 

Liberal feminism thinks the way to free women is to teach them to act the way patriarchal or “masculine” men act.  For example, to dominate others, to give up everyday life in search of happiness in the business world, to be less in tune with their bodies and minds, etc.  It’s the equivalent of telling black people in 1840 that the key to being free is to enslave others and start their own plantation.  We don’t want expedient, materialistic success; we want to be treated and thought of as human beings.  Liberal feminism also has a “pick your battles” attitude about the women’s movement, often calling some issue “too small” or “non-issues”, which is a tactic the patriarchy uses to silence complaints.  Who’s to decide which issues are “too small”?  If someone’s bothered by something, it needs to be addressed!
Liberal feminism believes men who hate women truly don’t know what they’re doing and if we just pick up a textbook and a dictionary and educate them, they’ll say, “Oh, okay.  I never realized that before!  I’ll stop using women as sperm dumpsters.”  Men already know women don’t like to be treated like shit, and that it’s wrong to treat someone a certain way because of something other than their personal characteristics.  The horrible things they do to women are things they know are wrong to do to everybody, like lying, insulting, victim-blaming, and assaulting. We’re supposed to believe men know it’s wrong to do those things to 100% of people, then suddenly forget that it’s wrong to do them to some people five minutes later.  Sorry.  Not buying it.
The solution liberal feminists have to the patriarchy problem is for women to find individual happiness or escape from it as individuals- i.e., if a woman happens to be lucky enough to become a big CEO, then feminism is a success, even though her sisters are still suffering.  “Individualism” is prized, instead of group politics, even though it is a group, as a group, that is suffering, not random individuals who just happen to be female.

 
We believe women should try to be as independent from men as possible, emotionally, financially, and otherwise.  Though there are definitely some good men, the majority of men on the planet (counting third world countries and places like Saudi Arabia) are bigoted and even dangerous.  Women should try to build up friendships and even romantic partnerships with other women as a precautionary measure, since men are taught to lie to and emotionally manipulate women to get what they want.  Women should partner with men only if the particular man is suitable, and should not search specifically for a male partner, because bad men prey on this automatic assurance that women will bond with men as a group, because they’re men.  We need to stop feeding the “a girl for every boy!” machine.

Forced monogamy is part of the problem.  If heterosexual women had the choice of sharing the few good men instead of settling for the bad ones (so each and every man, no matter how horrible, got a wife) a lot of our problems would be solved.  Why breed a bad man’s child?  It would also be better if women were not expected to marry to get societal benefits.

 
We oppose the “who am I to judge” attitude about bad male behavior such as objectifying women and watching pornography, and we have put forth the radical idea that prostitution and pornography are not ways to liberate women.  Current pornography, since it is 99% comprised of violence or domination against women, and since it is used as a manual to train young boys to hate and rape women, should be banned.  Pornography is not “just a choice” for either the viewer or the person in the photos.  Often, the girls used in the photos were coerced or were spied on, and the fact that they’re smiling means nothing, since they are only acting.  Often, actual rapes are filmed, and passed off as “acting”.  The user does not deserve any respect since they are viewing the other’s body as an object, and since they’re getting off from hatred and domination.  Only in a healthy society can erotica (NOT pornography) or other sexualized arts exist, a society free from misogyny and domination as a mainstream form of sex.
Prostitution must be criminalized for customers and decriminalized for prostituted women.  Prostitution is not just a job like any other.  Most people in the profession want to leave, but are forced to stay because their pimps threaten them with violence, because they are poor and hungry, or because they were kidnapped and placed in the business against their will.  The only difference between prostitution and rape is that the coercion part of it was done by the pimp or the woman’s circumstances, instead of by the man himself.  Sweden has criminalized prostitution for customers (johns) instead of the prostitutes themselves and has had great success.

 
The cowardly “all-inclusiveness” in the feminist movement must end immediately. We include those who support our goals. We do not include those who oppose our goals. Such would be including a Hitler Youth organizer in a Jewish rights march.  The reason we have a name for our movement is because we disagree with some beliefs and support others.  We also are not obligated to respect views opposing ours.  We do not respect Wahabbi Islam, religious right-wing nutjobs, the guy at the local Macy’s who calls women “bitches”, rapists who also happen to be good filmmakers, or the Pope.

 

 
Radical feminism is not afraid to fight the good fight, break some rules, and ruffle some feathers, because a few offended misogynists are worth our rights.  We are not “good girls” and we’re not dedicated to wasting our time “talking it out” and “educating” people who are opposed to us anymore than we would try to reason with the aggressor in any other war.  We will establish a world in which women are equal to men, in which men don’t prey on women, in which the media doesn’t make women feel ugly and inferior, and in which marriage and monogamy no longer trap women into men’s lives.

 

 

 

In other words, we will establish a world in which women are free from patriarchy and control by men.

What Would It Take?

.

What would it take for humanity to overthrow and transcend patriarchy?  Who must be the warriors in this battle against the patriarchs?  What must be done?  What must society be taught, in order to make this successful?  Must we break laws?  Which laws?  Do we lie to get our way?  Should we speak to children?  The religious?

.

I believe that women’s liberation from forced sex, second class status, poverty, disease, unwanted pregnancy, torture, death, psychological humiliation, and feeling of otherness is more important than obeying laws, being honest, paying taxes, or respecting the mythical parental right to influence children.

.

Laws are meant to protect people from being harmed or wronged in a complex society.  To break a law such as “don’t murder” would be to do wrong, it would be to harm someone.  But to break a law such as, “don’t trespass on school property or hand pamphlets to underage children” would not be bringing harm to anyone, or wronging them.  We must weigh the consequences; will the damage done by our action outweigh the damage done if we do not perform the action?  (Also, we must keep in mind that we must only perform such actions if they are the only way to achieve our goal, such as if the goal cannot be achieved in a less destructive way).

,
If we hand radical feminist pamphlets to sixth graders telling them about PIV sex and gender theories, and teaching them how to take control of their own sexual experiences, is the damage that will be done by them reading the pamphlets and getting their fragile little minds warped greater than the damage that will be done if we don’t hand them the pamphlets, and they become used and abused by men?  Is the risk of getting ourselves sued or thrown in jail (which we can avoid anyway by remaining anonymous and running off before we are caught) really worse than what will happen to those poor girls if they are not taught to be liberated?

.

If a local politician is seriously in the business of signing a bill that would criminalize accidental miscarriages, should we really refrain from physically forcing him to stop, or from interfering with the police when they try to arrest the suffering pregnant woman who is about to be put in a jail cell?  At what price must we continue to choose to obey the law?

.

     Over all, I think the necessity of the women’s liberation movement supersedes the necessity of obeying laws which prevent relatively harmless activities. 

.

What is to be done politically?  A good start would be to vote for all women, only women candidates.  Even those who are supposedly conservative will have empathy with women’s issues, because they must suffer under patriarchy as well.  Also, many conservative women have the same views as radical feminists about many things (the futility of the sexual liberation movement, the intuitive understanding of the nature of masculinity), as opposed to mainstream leftist or fun-fems.  Or, one could run for office herself, as a woman candidate, as a women’s issues supporter…or, if you would rather be a subverter, run under a lukewarm moderate campaign, while avoiding speaking about women’s issues, and then when elected, introduce women’s rights bills into the legislation.

.

Perhaps one day, if we get enough money pooled, or get enough women on board, we can set up our own nation or society, the way the Jews have done with Israel.  Someplace like Greenland would be nice.  It’s owned by Denmark, which is a relatively liberal country, at least compared to places like Greece and the United States.  And Saudi Arabia.  The cold weather would prevent intruders from wanting to stay too long, and the remoteness of the place would be good for women trying to escape abuse and depression.

,

Another great idea would be to get either a government fund or a private fund to ship abused women and children from the Middle East and Africa over to havens in Europe, Greenland, Canada, or the US (haha!) until we can clear the rats out of the Middle East and Africa and the other third world countries.  The bad men would be taken out by police force or government edict, the laws changed, and the good men transported to safe havens along with the women and children, but perhaps generally on the periphery.

All of them would be screened- politely and like human beings, please- for issues like emotional and physical abuse, and for evidence of patriarchal family structure.  Women and children would have the choice to leave any abusive husbands that were discovered during the screenings.  Money could be raised by legislating better use of government funds, or by selling baked goods, necklaces, objects on EBay, knitted scarves, collecting money from churchgoers “for a good cause”, and donating part of the income we already make.

,

We should send speakers to public schools who are supportive of radical feminism.  They can contact the school, advertising their willingness to teach the children about bullying and sexual health issues, and then when they get up to the microphone, they can add in a bunch of stuff that is crucial to our cause, such as the nature of patriarchy, and the helpfulness of lesbian communitarianism.  Of course, we should advertise our services under a different guise every time, lest the schools catch onto the our act, and start banning sexual health speakers because most of them turn out to be radfems in disguise.

.

If we do get women in office, laws should be passed that promote affirmative action for women and women of color, along with a privilege tax which men should have to pay, since patriarchy unfairly benefits them.  The proceeds from this tax may go to the havens for foreign women, or for the Greenland colony, or for sending condoms and sexual health and pro-feminism pamphlets to Africa.

The driving and voting ages should be lowered for women and lifted for men, since males on average mature much more slowly than females.  Any males entering the police or other law forces should undergo a sexual violence propensity test, and police departments should have a quota of at least 50% women. Most violent crimes committed by the police are by white male officers, who are often sophomoric and immature.  The military must unquestioningly allow gays and lesbians to serve without discrimination, either public or private, and Army rapes must go reported, with offenders being dishonorably discharged.

.

Women should try to have as many relationships with other women as possible, either lesbian, or, if one cannot change one’s heterosexuality, find a rare good male and be sure to stock up on as many female friends as possible.  The rare good men should be shared by women.

.

Books and movies as are read and watched by children, such as patriarchal, woman-mocking 1940s films, or fairy tales in which females are demonized as wicked stepmothers should be discussed in schools and only watched for the entertainment value, not as education.

.

.

As you can see, it would be difficult but not complex or confusing to free women from men’s chains.  All we need to do is make plans, band together, and keep at it.
