If you’ve read my earlier blog posts it will be easy for you to understand why I would feel outraged by the dictation of false feminists. The idea that anyone would have a sense of entitlement not acheived through proper empathy or raw experience and yet strives to monitor and amend the language of those who wish to express their free thoughts on feminist issues is something I won’t endure passively.
The feminist movement is one that takes on a challenge which has been around for far too long. It’s getting better, sure, but we need to go further. I have met, read about, and have known personally many men whose voices add validity and power to the changes we still seek. The counterfeit feminist feels that she has no need for a male voice let alone a female voice that carries with it characteristics she deems negative. This brand of feminism is counterproductive. Every voice needs to be heard. Every voice lends a spin that is helpful to the cause. An attempt to silence these voices or label them offensive is a transgression that should be accosted.
The oppressors of women each have their own set of beliefs based on what they were taught and what they’ve experienced. The more methods we have for waking these individuals up the better our chances for bringing about change. The aspiring oppressor has an ingrained perception of how a woman should behave and how she should present herself to the world. I naturally and authentically do not fit inside this box. The mere words I utter shake some of them to their very core. It doesn’t take a concerted effort for me to draw attention toward my concept of equality. They may not soften enough to hear my words or comprehend the definition I offer today yet my words have a way of lingering and I’ve been fortunate enough to discover that down the road a bit something I said or wrote had struck a chord with a few of these individuals. They did not hesitate to convey to me that their prior notions have since changed. Some greatly, some slightly. I’ll take either or both. Any level of awakening is a good level. This history motivates me to continue on with an open and honest style of feminism.
Equality for women is not a game to be played where the women vs men bullshit is perpetuated. It is an ideal that offers all men and women an opportunity to benefit from a world full of humans that share not only the same rights and freedoms but the same responsibilities as well. Equal treatment gives birth to equal contribution and equal gain. Isn’t this the point?
There are many women who carry around the dogma of the oppressors. They live in a reality which has them believing they will be spared poor treatment if they join forces with those who desperately hang on to perceived power over all women. It’s a grievous mistake to be sure. Nothing feeds the ravenous ego of a maniacal tyrant more than a sycophant. These two personality types are a cyclical mess of horseshittery. I haven’t the inclination to address this aspect at the moment although it should be confronted. I’ll work on that.
My primary objective for writing this post is to express my aversion to those that call themselves feminists and yet spend their time and energy on supervising the expressions of true male and female feminists that are in the fight to win the fight. Some of these genuine warriors use dignified speech that pierces the minds of those who stand on the property lines of human behavior. This method often works well to spark new thought and change. I’m all for it. As well, some of those who strive for equality use language that may be jarring to the listener. Let’s face it, many of these stubborn authoritative types have thick skulls. They respond with initial shock which, if taken advantage of correctly and in a timely manner, can offer a moment of malleability. That’s where seeds are planted. That’s where thoughts have the potential to grow. It is the latter skill that I and many of my fellow freedom fighters have honed. We’re good at it and it’s natural for us. Riding side by side with the eloquent speakers, we can make great strides.
So I say to all of you fucked up cunts who feign a place within the conviction called The Feminist Movement… shut the mother fuck up, step aside and let the bona fide yet eloquent along with the true yet brash feminists express themselves accordingly. We’re paying attention to the issues and are open to a variety of ways in which they can be addressed. You don’t get to decide how another speaks. Your opinion that if certain words are used they will defeat the purpose of the movement is not even close to being correct. In fact you are taking up the mantle of the oppressor and fucking yourself in the head with it. Be quiet for a minute already. Pay close attention to what you are asking of us. You may just learn something about how far you’ve actually come as opposed to how far along you believe yourself to be.
I am never done learning, not until my last breath. One thing I’ve already absorbed is those who seek to silence speech have something to be afraid of. Stay vocal.
