Ok, if you can stop chuckling at Jones’ ‘misogyny-ists’ for a moment, this post is about the oft cited “you will be on the wrong side of history” phrase that gets thrown up on a fairly regular basis. Boiling it down to the essential meaning: “support twanz, or you will be on the wrong side of history”. Yep, got it.
Except that we have lived under several thousand years of Patriarchy, HIStory is always written by the winners (therefore HIStory is written by the patriarchs).
Clearly, to be on the ‘right side’ of HIStory, you have to be a twanz supporter. The same HIStory that is written by male supremacists and colonisers.
Further, feminism and women have ALWAYS been on the wrong side of HIStory. The suffragettes got the same shit (and more) as we still do today.
If supporting feminism and the liberation of females is ‘wrong’; then I don’t ever want to be ‘right’.
