So I took another unexpected break.
Andrea Dworkin once said that so many women don’t bother with feminism because they can’t take the misery, the burden, the ugliness in the realization of how horribly we are treated, just for being women. I am paraphrasing, of course, but I so relate to that sentiment. Lots of you do, too, I am sure.
I have just been in a dark place. A few weeks ago, there was a thread on gender critical reddit (which banned Mancheeze, btw, what the fuck is even happening) about a post on one of the trannie reddits. A trannie posted a picture of the “ultimate” woman, she was kind of a 1950s pin up, full make up and hair, high heels, in a kitchen (of fucking COURSE), and she was bending over a stove, arching her back, pouting all sexy like, while baking a fucking cake, presumably for her male owner.
You know. Just like we women everywhere do. /s
And the trannies were so enthralled, going on and on about how they know that they are women because this picture was just the ideal woman, they want to be just like her, with the sexy cake baking, and didn’t she look nurturing and feminine, just as they aspire to be.
Because this picture *is* the ideal woman. TO MALES.
And these dudes, all out in the open, talking about how this is what they want to be. Because she is the ultimate woman.
These same dudes will say that they are against traditional gender roles and accuse us of being bigots. And then they will fill a fucking reddit thread about this picture, about how this “domestic goddess” is their goal. Because cleaning, cooking, nurturing, submitting, (femininity) is the ultimate in being a woman.
Do you ever think about the women before us? Women that had no rights at all. Women who had talents, interests, wants, intelligence, skills that they were not allowed to use? Because they were forced into the domestic servant role?
I do. I think about them. And how males had not only their own life to live as they wished, but also a wife/slave who would be forced to live as he wished. That fucker got 2 lives because he was just too goddamned stupid, selfish, lazy, ignorant to wash his own fucking underwear or clean his own fucking toilet.
And his wife got NO LIFE. Her life was never her own. Her one life was spent as property of her father and then her husband. Males kept everything from her and then called her lesser because of it. Her entire life, consumed by males.
Trannies think that this prison, this cage, these fucking chains that males created and call “femininity” is what being a woman is, because they are males, and males demand that we be “feminine”. And really, “feminine” is defined by males as the opposite of “masculine”. So when males decide that they can’t/won’t perform “masculinity”, well then, they must be a lady!
This is what passes for “superior male reasoning”.
While reading that post, I just couldn’t, anymore. I was just done. Because that post, along with a couple of other incidents in the past few weeks, is just another sign that we are losing.
We need a new plan. Begging male systems, participating in them, is getting us nowhere except backwards. Explaining endlessly to males is just wasting our time and keeping things as males want them. They are endlessly stalling to keep the boot on our neck.
There are ways that we can fight and I am going to be writing about them in the next few days. What we are doing now, it is like a group of males has shown up at our house with gasoline and matches. And while we are explaining to them why it is wrong for them to burn our house down, they very calmly, systematically are spreading gasoline to burn. We keep explaining while they light the match. We beg them to stop, they ignite the gas.
And while the house is burning down, we are begging them to please, please, please put out the fire.
See how this makes no sense at all? When has an oppressed group ever been liberated by begging the oppressors???
I have ideas. And I know that lots of you do, too.
So let’s hear them. Let’s Talk about them. We can liberate ourselves.
