Femininity links and thoughts

Typology of Apology — depressingly accurate description of the different types of rape apology. but we don’t live in a rape culture, no sir [/sarcasm]

feminism is a lie of the devil — pretty much every article in there is an example of “that’s a feature, not a bug”: feminism is making women divorce men who want them to go back to the kitchen! feminism will lead to communism! (not actually true for any real definition of “communism”, but certainly for the wingnut definition, and certainly some Marxist analysis of women’s oppression is quite accurate)

feministe on reporting about O’Donnell’s hypocrisy — and this is a good explanation of how NOT to write about conservative women. Because really, the sort of sexism used against O’Donnell, and Paling, and Coulter doesn’t really help the feminist cause, and just promotes the really damaging trope that only good women deserve to be protected. I.E. this is just a liberal version of the “innocent vs guilty victim” bullshit. And it’s just all sorts of not helpful to be committing hypocrisy while writing about someone else being hypocritical.

    oh, I didn’t say they were mutually exclusive, but feminism itself is not sufficient by itself to create a communist state, i’d think

  5. strange gods before me says:

    I was under the impression that it went like this:

    1. Feminism
    2. Abortion
    3. Gay Marriage
    4. ???
    5. ELIMINATE PROFIT!
