It’s Monday morning, here in the southern united states, and I am wondering about how women are doing.
I am hanging in there. It’s hard. I am overwhelmed. Not gonna lie.
Part of how I deal with things is that I try to put a shine on my personal life, I try to accentuate the positive. Everything sucks and we are all in hell, but there’s still pie, and dogs, and ice cream, there’s still a lot to like about living.
And writing is part of how I deal with that. But sometimes, it’s overwhelming. Do I write about the ACLU suing the DOJ in washington state? They are suing to block a FOIA request from a woman who wants to know how many males are in female prisons, claiming that no one knows who the males are and that one of the reasons that they need their anonymity protected is that the women may rape them, if women find out which ones of them is male.
Do I write about the state of louisiana having a push to legalize paid rape of women and girls? Because even though the red states know that female people are the fucktoilets that they force to have babies, and that males are not and can never be women, males continue to push us into whatever suits their penis. And nothing pleases penis like prostitution.
Or how about Scotland. Where university is pushing troon inclusion, and in the written instructions, is some of the scariest male demands that I have seen as of late, including that we are no longer allowed to be “trans avoidant”. As well as it is demanded to not overly focus on biological markers.
Or how about elliott page, who knows she is really a male because she abhors being treated as we are always treated, as fucktoys, as lesser, as sex servants. Being female means that we enjoy being sexually harassed, groped, raped, and when we refuse that treatment, then we must really be male.
Or billie ellish on the cover of vogue. Which is giving me Avril levigne flashbacks.
Or what about the division that women discussing elliott page, or billie ellish, is creating, and having women who understandably feel betrayal being told by other women that criticism of page or ellish is misogynist and bad?
What about richard dawkins. And his hatred of Women outweighing his (supposed) love of science and facts.
Or how about the girls in connecticut that were suing to keep boys off of their track teams having their case dismissed. The original girls are through high school, that fight is over. In part, because of Biden, who removed his office from the suit.
There’s also a huge uptick in male domestic violence on women and girls, in some places, it’s up 300%, due to covid-19. Covid has definitely been more deadly to women and girls. Because males are histerical over it. And when males have a feeling, it almost always manifests as violence directed at us.
It’s all too much. I have been working on a post about privilege and male children, and I continually take breaks from it because it is so bleak.
The overwhelming is intentional. While males will frame their dominance and colonization of Women and Girls as “nuance” or “having no easy solution” or “inclusion”, their penis keeps marching on all fronts, hiding behind their performance of bumbling and really, really trying, and the penis is just “confused”, but trying to be “fair to everyone”.
It’s so transparent, and stupid, and just so male, that it would be funny if they weren’t so pathetically greedy.
So while I am trying to pick a topic out of hundreds, tell us how you are doing, if you would like to talk.
If you would like to talk, but don’t know what to say, tell me about your hobbies, or about what you are watching, or reading. Tell me your favorite snack. Tell me about your dog, or your cat, or your ferret, bird, or hedgehog. Do you put anything in your coffee? Or tea? Do you prefer jam or jelly?
Tell us anything. But if you don’t want to talk, but you read here, know that you are a part of the global sisterhood, and that I wish good things for you, my sisters, on this day, and every other day. I hope that you can find at least a few moments of peace and joy in every day.
