Apparently some people have a problem with radfems – who knew! But when those people are actually misogynists, pretending to be some kind of feminist, well then Houston, we have a problem.
Putting aside the double-barrelled girly name and prominent adam’s apple (dear gawd did you even look in the mirror to think you would pass?), our chum “Robyn-Eleanor” thinks he may school us on the evils of feminism and radical feminism in particular.
So let me make something very clear. I am not an MRA, Rad fem, Rad Trans, or any of the above.
Interesting random capitalisation there dude! ‘fem’ gets the lowercase treatment, but trans, the capital T thing! Just waaaay to go unbiased and stuff!!
I am going to flat out say my opinion, Radical gender movements of any kind are for Scum.
What, radical gender movements like perhaps Tranz? OK then, we possibly have reached agreement already dude! Just an FYI though, if you are calling radical feminism a ‘radical gender movement’ you couldn’t be more wrong – given the radfem mission to ABOLISH gender and all.
There is a huge fucking difference between what the original Suffragettes did compared to the scum of the second wave and rad fems.
The ‘scum of the second wave’ eh? What, those activist women who, in the 1960s fought against the female pay being a mere 10-40% of the male wage, the right to have a bank account or mortgage in the woman’s name, access to abortion and birth control – oh yeah, I can totally see your point dude… such pure scum! Dammit, all females should be barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen, because damn that pesky second wave from getting in the way of all that!
First off Suffragettes didn’t put words in the mouth of relatives of mine. I am directly descended from Samuel Adams, however I think he was an asshole for this country was founded on greed but that’s a story for another time. Abigail Adams is classified as a “Radical Feminist author” however this is where the twisting of my great (times whatever) cousins wife is not only insulting but revolting. She was not, everyone in the Adam’s blood line suffered from Bi-polar disorder for years. Later this turned into a less dominate trait, she was Bi-polar hence why here letters to her husband John Adams when from raging to apologetic. She had extreme mood swings and I can tell you she would not by any means stand by the Bullshit that Rad fems martyr her name for.
So you name-drop the dudely John Adams, half-claim Abigail Adams (not blood related to you anyway), claim she is misappropriated, but somehow claim the first wave feminism she fought for, then dismiss that as bi-polar ramblings in a line that isn’t really a direct line? OK, got it. But wait a minute dude, how exactly are you claiming direct feminist lineage as cred, then denying that lineage as bunk?
Why do I bring this up? because that was the first time I ran into a rad fem was when they began twisting and irritating convolution my ancestors words. When we knew the truth about our families genetics since we hid it for over a century, we as in John’s and Samuel’s families. Hell it was not that hard to find by just doing a bit of back tracking.
This is a problem and not my major beef either, but it is an example of why they cannot be trusted at all.
Umm, who then? Abigail, to whom you are not directly related? Or to John or Samuel to whom you are vaguely related?
My biggest beef falls under several arguments and who represent them.
People who are middle class, white women, who have never lived in the gutter, people who have never truly suffered.
LOL dude. You just got through name-dropping, now you want to diss middle class white people, of whom you are one, given the two-par lineage you just laid out. Whoopies dude, just blew your own street-cred there.
You have not fucking right to tell a rape victim what is and isn’t rape, you have no right to choose who is worth protecting and who must be oppressed. IT IS NOT YOUR CHOICE.
Whoa! Where did that come from after you esteemed pedigree and subsequent denial of pedigree? I really fail to see the connection here.
If you identify as rad fem you are part of what is wrong with this world. YOU ARE THE PATRIARCHY, YOU AID YOUR ENEMY. A radical is a person who trivializes everything it is to be human, and chooses to oppress those they are trying to represent by filling their minds with bigotry aimed at the wrong person.
We ARE the patriarchy? LOL, far from it dude. Our mission is actually to abolish the patriarchy, not uphold it. What is this ‘you aid your enemy’ bullshit? Makes no sense. We are hated primarily because we oppose the patriarchy, not because we uphold it. And what’s with the singular ‘wrong person’, are your fee-fees butt-hurting about now? Well, diddums.
It was not a MRA thought outed trans teenagers illegally, if was a rad fem, no matter what your view on gender is, a rad fem put a CHILD a fucking CHILD in danger of a hate crime, for simply trying to go to the bathroom.
Umm no. The so-called child was a teenaged male, emailing threats to a radfem. Instead of reporting to the police as she could have done, she reported him to the school – the soft option in other words. Teenagers, particularly teenaged males, are fully capable of committing crimes. They are not children (who are, in rarer circumstances, also capable of committing crimes).
Want to know why I said shut the fuck up? Maybe because NONE OF YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE RAPED. If you did you would never have made that call, YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE STALKED, AND OUTED A CHILD. I repeat they outed hundreds of children because “all men are rapists” and the CHILDREN were trying to invade women only spaces.
Non sequitur going on about the rape/outing business. Two different things, and plenty of radfems have been raped, and outing does not necessarily lead to rape. As for ‘hundreds of children’, you may want to back that up with, yanno, actual evidence and stuff, coz there isn’t any, and really, just is hyperbole, rhetoric and … libel.
Next SEX WORK
anyone who has gone on twitter and looked at #notyourrescueproject would have noticed sex workers are being “rescued” against their will. Since obviously no sane woman would classify sex as work.
Rescued against their will? It is hard enough trying to rescue someone who is willing, and damned impossible to try and ‘rescue’ someone against their will. You seriously are an idiot.
Okay history lesson kids, Sex work predates the Patriarchy, IT PREDATES CHRISTIANITY. what does this mean? It means even female dominated societies had sex workers, WHY? because some people ENJOY IT.
Sources please, oh-looney-one. Yes prostitution has been around for a long time, but so has slavery. Maybe because slavery has been around for a very long time, we should legalise it? Because that is the only real argument you are putting forth. If you rely on the ‘some people enjoy it’ thing, well, surely then you would have no problem with the ones being prostituted being rescued? Otherwise, you’d be an asshole.
I have literally never found a person of color, a poor person, or person who has been discriminated against ever utter the words “I am a rad fem”
Actually there are plenty. Most of us are poor (being women and all) and plenty are non-white. So basically just making shit up there dude.
Yet I have heard of Rad fems, putting trans women out of work and making them homeless (Sophia banks a photographer in Toronto), twisting other peoples words (my ancestor), Oppressing women (#notyourrescueproject), Trivializing rape ( degree’s of rape), Causing higher rate of suicide among teens (outing teenagers), and overall being scum bags.
Putting someone out of business? Cite the actual events and evidence dude, because that again would be rhetoric and umm, libel. No radfem has that kind of power. Trivialising degrees of rape? Jeez, it’s radfems that actually include more het/piv activity as rape than any other group – you cannot first diss our ‘piv is rape’ thing, then claim we don’t classify enough as rape.
I’m going to end on a note, a friend of mine Sophia Banks, recently had her entire Wedding photography business scuttled because of rad fems, led by Cathy Brennan. They went on a rampage posting fake reviews on yelp, her business doesn’t exist anymore and she was homeless because of this. HOW IS THIS HELPING WOMEN? YOU THREW A WOMAN ON TO THE STREET.
Again, show your (non-existent) evidence dude. Otherwise, libel.
Let me make something clear Women are women based on their brains, and bio-electric feed back. Not their bodies, If being a woman is completely about the body, than I pity anyone who has breast, ovarian, or uterus surgery, Why? because then they are no longer women by rad fems, because let’s face it male and female is all about who looks better by the boob-age(EXTREME SARCASM). Rad fems you make me sick, there is more to a woman besides her body.
If being a woman is supposedly ‘all in the brain’, then why are the male dress-ups needed dude? Obviously everyone should be able to spot your ladybrain shining like a beacon from half a mile away!
But nope. It is nothing to do with laydee brains shining like a beacon. We females are discriminated against as females from birth to grave (which is pre and post menstruation/menopause). Gender is just the straight-jacket to which we are confined, it is not what female is about. We seriously don’t need a dude, who looks like a dude, who was raised as dude, to tell us we’re doin’ feminism wrong. We know what it is to be female, not you. And frankly, with all your dissing of the second wave feminism, you outed yourself as an MRA and misogynist. Toodles nutjob.
