We are just drowning in male ideas about everything, so much so, that the only Women that are allowed a large platform are regurgitating the same old male ideas, the male viewpoints, the male opinions. Women that rail against male supremacy will always be silenced, if their audience gets too big.
I know what males think about everything.
I want to know what YOU think.
Specifically, I want to know your thoughts about death and dying.
When I first began looking for Feminist/woman centered thoughts about death, I was shocked to find very little information. Death seems like it would be a subject that is acknowledged frequently by women, not only do we die of the same diseases and accidents that kill males, but we also die in ways that only women do. We die in pregnancy and childbirth, we die from complications from childbirth months after the birth. We die from male Violence, in multiple ways, males murder us with guns, knives, with their bare hands, for no reason at all. Male toxicity kills us.
We also deal with a lot of the death and dying. Nurses are majority female, and women took care of the dead until males turned it into a profit generating dick fest.
I found many studies that cited stats that were unsurprising, that showed that women were not as afraid of dying as males are, that women are more likely to acknowledge and talk about their own impending death than males are. Males seem to be obsessed with finding a way to live forever, which is pathetically ironic, considering that they cause most of the death and dying.
So. Tell me.
Are you afraid of dying?
Are you afraid of what may happen after death?
What do you think happens after we die?
How do you want to be remembered?
What are your thoughts on burial? Cremation?
Do you want a funeral? Or a living funeral, aka a celebration of life?
What has your experience of death been so far?
And anything else that you want to tell us, or talk about.
Claire Wineland was born with cystic fibrosis, and she made a lot of YouTube videos until her death a little over a year ago at the age of 21. She didn’t shy away from talking about death in general or specifically, her own death.
During treatment for breast cancer, a tumor was found in Ellie’s brain. I enjoyed hearing her story, and her perspective of her own death. I would have liked a full 30 minutes about her, there was a little too much focus on the other PEOPLE, but it’s still her story, and I appreciated it……….
Finally, from sin big, who posts here as sinbigger, some woman centered thoughts about death and Violence…..
There are a lot of our stories out there, they are almost buried by focus on the males, even when it’s supposed to center a woman or girl. So let’s talk. I want to know your thoughts.
This is what I am going to look like after I die……
…………and I WILL be dancing. So wave at me if you see me. It’s always a good idea to be friendly to the dancing dead lady. 😋
