OK FRIENDS and everyone else tracking these tags. I’m gonna lay out my radfeminism for ya reading pleasure:
Just because I am a radfem doesn’t mean that I agree with every single thing said in the SCUM manifesto. I’m still an intersectional feminist, I still support the trans community, I still have male friends who I love as individuals and a male partner whom I respect and don’t want to kill.
I do think men are inferior to women, not naturally, but through the conditioning of a society that teaches them to objectify, to be vain and needy,to control women, to rape.
I do respect men as individuals while still hating men as a group. When I meet a cis male I do assume he’s a misogynistic pig until his words and actions prove me wrong. I assume this because of life experience. I assume this because of the thousands of men that I have known over my lifetime only a handful has proved me wrong. Once I’ve established that the man I’m getting to know does not harbor feelings of hate/superiority/ownership towards my gender then I can begin to respect him as a human. It’s a process, but sometimes it’s worth it.
Ultimately I gravitate towards radfeminism and misandry because I think there’s something whimsical and ironic and hilariously violent about it, and if you’re not seeing it that way-as a meme, as a celebration of womanity-then you’re missing the point. Misandry is not a counterbalance to misogyny. Misogyny is rooted in the society we live in, Misandry is rooted in a future/fantasy world that’s lovely to think about, but far, far out of our reach.
I don’t care about men’s rights or men’s voices being heard (because when have men ever had their rights taken away from them and when have they ever been silenced?)
I’m a lighthearted radfeminist and if you can’t swallow that concept then get off my blog.
