You didn't understand a word I said, but assume you understood everything I said. Typical social media response. ??????? You re-write my every word and misinterpret every sentence. But this said, I do believe you would burn Adrien Rich's essay on "Compulsive Heterosexuality," which I don't think even went far enough in its recognition of how CH affects ALL SEX. What to hell is wrong with me saying that if sex objectification ended, we would be living in an unrecognizable world, an egalitarian one... no prostitution, no porn, no wars, no earth destruction...

What's the general consensus on sexuality being a choice? by SexualityCritical in GenderCritical

[–]jkfinn 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Sexuality is built around male objectification of women (or her substitute)---men doing the objectifying and women having to deal with it via a array of responses which include both acceptance and rejection. Sex is a political act--or how women are made inferior and how men achieve dominance.

What would male sex be like without objectification? My conjecture is that it would be far less significant, far less practiced (if at all), far more private and, of course, far more egalitarian and real. It would also mean a new day for women’s sexuality which would slowly transform into something perhaps unpredictably different from its present forms, because the heterosexual determinant, which everyone practices or constantly has to reject, will have vanished. It would also end gender altogether, and those hundreds of labels that are supposed to derive from “natural” or “cultural” “sex attraction” to this or that sex and gender--although there would, undoubtedly, be far more lesbians.

I'm not sure what you mean by "late in the game," but I'm referring to the fall of 2001 when most of this debate was going on in the US media. Radical feminists had been in contact with the major women's groups in Afghanistan and were working in consort with them at this point and earlier. And if you want to go back further, it had always been a position of US rads to counter and call for an end to all US wars with the understanding that this is what EMPIRE does--eternally go to war, and beat the hell out their outclassed, out-tecked, and under-armed foes.

YES. There should be no need at all in a “radical feminist” space, to even begin to explain one’s position on Israel& the Palestinians. And not up until maybe the last 7-8 years (my experience) had this been at all necessary, because the foundation had been very long and firmly established. One key thing that changed the situation was the rise on feminist social media of exiled Middle East feminists, whose assimilation to the West and western values seemed all too successful. In fact, their fierce critique of Islamic sexism seemed to be their calling card within feminism---in other words, it worked. But not with me--the voices seemed too irate, too ahistoric, too clinging to western values. So ever since way back when (2015 maybe) I’ve been regularly downvoted for offering any kind of polite and measured context for the Islam they hated, which was very often the same Islam that the CIA had promoted for purposes of division.

Another impetus to this reactionary move has been through feminist Phyllis Chessler, who started attacking Islamic sexism (I think around 2015). This was picked up by many young feminists, some GC feminists, and adopted. I finally left Feminist Currents over the debates over her positions, but at least here it was two or three of us against everyone else (things only got worse for me at other sites) The whole damn thing seemed almost as NUTS to me as transgender itself--I literally felt like I was losing my mind, but ended up blaming it all on the superficiality of social media (no time for history, no time for thought, no time for radical analysis, no time for books or delving into the second wave etc) Anyhow... same stuff at Ovarit-- my last few such comments on the subject (erased) I was, as usual, the only downvoted commenter (not a single upvote) in a bobbing sea of plus votes, and that’s as you point out, as the Palestinians, once again, were being basically massacred.

No, I was saying that radical feminism (at least second wave) had a far more sophisticated knowledge of politics, and international politics, in general--no way they would attack Islam on its sexism without also grasping that this criticism could easily used by the West to further its own racism--and colonialism. Also, any critique of sexist Islam would, of course, be accompanied by the same for all dominant religions. I don't know what you call attacks on Islam along with defenses of Christianity and the West, but i would call that some form of liberal/conservative thinking--it surely isn't radical because the thought behind it is superficial and self-serving.

Yeah, a good example in the U.S. was the sharp difference between the radical feminist response to the Afghanistan War and that of liberal feminists. The rad’s was both all-out opposition to going to war and to the save-the-Afghan-women-from-the-Taliban pretext for that war, while liberals conveniently agreed with the pretext so that they could support the war.

I find Ovarit more difficult than GC reddit. There's something less controlled, and more arbitrary about the threads... I don't want to sound like a bore, but radical content is very minimal (according to my book) and liberal content maximal. I just find it harder and harder to get into it and the place makes me wonder where all the radical feminist positions on world politics have gone... i seem to get scorned for defending middle east countries (even including Palestinians) or explaining Islam even in a slightly favorable light... such a pro Western place (in my experience).

I have no idea what's better, but there's gotta be some site that insists on radical politics. At this point, I don't even care if it's just plain radical as opposed to radical feminist. I'm open to finding either--because there shouldn't be much difference betwixt the two.

No, he didn't "kill thousands." And if you lived in rural NY, you would find yourself constantly defending Cuomo (as arrogant as he is) against the gun-loving, tax-hating, racists who bash every move he makes. The great scandal of Nursing Home deaths in rural NY was not Cuomo's position but the stupid directors of these places encouraging Covids patients to die "at home" (the nursing home) without going to the hospital to receive the latest treatments. In one nursing home near me, 14 out of 15 patients just died in place and only one opted for the hospital. This was murder, but everyone just lapped it up as so caring, so Christian, so in step with the wishes of the family and the patient.... (it's no fun defending Cuomo who I oppose on some key issues but for upstaters it's par for the course)

Transgenderism: A New Operating System for Patriarchy by [deleted] in GenderCritical

[–]jkfinn 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The only explanation that makes sense is that transgenderism is providing new tools to implement patriarchy, filling in the cracks in the system left by the work of feminists. The majority of people, at least in the United States where research has been conducted, do not believe in or want transgender ideology. Professions and organizations do implement it, nonetheless, their raison d’etre is to promote patriarchy.

This is certainly an original and thought-provoking article. It's worth a thorough read, which I will soon do after my more cursory one. It makes a hell of a lot of sense to me in terms of the rapid implementation--like so much of the computer medium which has been disturbingly thrust upon us, mainly through force, in a very short time span.

One might look out for socialists or Marxists or various male formations to take over but liberals... 'no way.'

I don't have any sense of Ovarit having any male problem--not right now. If anything, it's sometimes overly liberal feminist, and a little on the female ghetto side, esp some of the subs there. Try making a clearly radical feminist thoughtful remark--even as the first comment to a thread on some non GC sub, then check back later and don't be at all surprised if you've received ZERO upvotes. I once got three of these in a row--all to expressed thoughts I expected some discussion around. And it's not that I was the only respondent to any of those threads. It's rather that radical to many there is equivalent to extreme or hurtful or or angry or divisive--all liberal takes in these cases I refer to.

Chomsky makes a lot of good critical points, and he never interrupts Vigo, but he gives very little indication of really listening to her comments and questions.

To me transgender is much closer to a post-modernism and post-feminism question than an identity politics one.

Well, if radical feminism is what "bans" you, imagine how actual radical feminists feel. You have the majority of women to support you and your thoughts, and radical feminists only have their tiny number of cohorts. To boot, I think this site and Ovarit just like reddit gc before, are mainly liberal feminist (esp Ovarit--check out all their subs--hardly a radical notion on them). One can oppose transgender on many different grounds, many of them having little to do with radical feminism, or you can oppose trans and porn but two issues do not make a radical feminist.

While stocking a book isn't an endorsement (good grief, that would be a minefield), and we will always take orders for books that aren't in stock, there are more worthy books to put on the shelf – books that don't harm communities and won't make us sad to unpack them,” a spokesperson wrote.

Inside the Anti-Abortion Movement's "Feminist" Quest to End the Pill by eddyelric in GenderCritical

[–]jkfinn 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It seems like this anti-birth control movement is in some ways the end result of the breakdown of the Second Wave under the influence of both the New Age and the Pro-Sex movements. Although there was a lot of positives about feminism’s holistic health approach & practices, it did open itself up to the New Age feelings, personal solution, & individual testimony culture. And the sex-positive women, of course, presented the perfect target for the anti-abortionists. They were everything that right wing women despised (it made no difference to them that this pro-sex movement effectively primarily attacked radical feminism). But all three of these negative outcomes for the WLM might have been avoided or better resisted by an insistence on, or a demand for, not only radical feminist politics, but a clear and binding definition of radical feminism. For all three took advantage of this expanding loophole to gather strength and doing so by ripping off & diluting radical feminism.

PS U.S. Catholics have accepted abortion by a majority margin for decades. It is now at a low of 58% acceptance, but has been as high as 77%., and has, at times, been higher than Protestant acceptance.

Why do so many women deny the existence of misogyny? by RedditHatesLesbians in GenderCritical

[–]jkfinn 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Well, radical feminism, is really the only politics around that is "egalitarian."

But the real problem is that "politics" is forbidden. What passes for "politics," or the political, are its fragments, not its whole. Sexism, racism, and classism are not in any way separate but are all central to what politics means which is a complete understanding of power's workings and a committed resistance to that. The reason "misogyny" is overlooked is because those who insist on it (radical feminists) stand against all the -isms, including militarism, and because they put women first... out of pure necessity because all other political formations place them last. Thus women's erasure from politics and from history.

What are “femmes?” and “femboys?” Is there any connection at all between them and women? Are they more pro-women and anti-sexist than typical males? Are they “a powerful voice against TRAS?” Or on the contrary, do they represent nothing more than puffery, or a lighter forum of female ridicule?

I'm just curious about her aversion to "wife," and you're mentioning the term "propose" a couple times. Was this meant to be an equal relationship? If so, why the "proposal" idea, which I assume means marriage. Is it possible she's opposed to being a "wife" in a marriage? Or that she's opposed to marriage just as millions of straight women are. Also, are you the one assumed to do the “proposing?” Or, could she have also done so all along?

None of this need be answered, of course. That said, the rest does seem to indicate a long relationship lost to the trans cult. Which can probably best be overcome by doubling down on the criticism of trans.--after or during a short or long recovery.

Why I Don't Read Rebecca Solnit | The Walrus by [deleted] in GenderCritical

[–]jkfinn 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

That identity also stems from the way social media has transformed the feminist movement, reducing a complex body of work to a series of memes, hashtags, and Instagrammable pics. There is now a certain type of female solidarity—call it “pop feminism”—that addresses only topics we can safely agree on. (Viviane Fairbank)

This understanding is, to me, central to this piece. Although the piece is primarily about Solnit, it is just as much about “pop feminism,” which I think has been the dominant form of feminism since the split in the second wave. So many feminists then fled into psycho-therapy, Buddhism, and other New Age practices; while still others adopted sexual revolution, Queer, and gay male politics. All this and most everything that followed can be described as “pop feminism.” And what assured this was the rise of the internet and social media in the 1990s. The very nature of this media all but makes radical feminism impossible, because fragments based more on psychology than on politics, is not sexual politics, or a vision, or an understanding of male supremacy. Radical meant connections & unity stemming from a radical political platform, while pop means separate pieces, none of which are supposed to offend (oh my god) those in the sympathetic online bubbles, for fear of bumping heads with similars who tend to push dissimilars out. It’s a long story but I suspect that the comments to this piece will key on Solnit and less on the ground or lack of ground that produced her.

Many of us have read Solnit pieces/books in the past, and for the most part, were probably much impressed. And until i read this piece a few days ago, I just assumed that as a well known, popularly distributed, feminist journalist, she was a mix of liberal/radical at best, but more likely, a liberal. This piece of pro-trans propaganda places her firmly in the liberal "feminist" camp. I mean it's not even in the least subtle in this regard. The only thing remarkable then about this piece, as opposed to her many others, is that here she's flipping off her more radical readers while, at the same time, aligning her thought & career more pointedly (indeed) within liberal feminism.

Reactionary bullshit from a known feminist journalist whose articles are often reproduced for discussion on “rad fem” (one has to wonder) sites. I cringe right off the bat by her addressing GC critics as “Ladies” and at her incredibly romanticized view of San Francisco (porn factories, sex positive, & super rich) as a bastion of civil liberties. As I read along (who can finish this supreme whitewash) what comes back to me like a bolt is the pro-sex movement which split the second wave. These women were also known feminists (most in the performance arts and/or journalists etc) and had names like Erika Lust, Annie Sprinkle, Pat(rick) Califia, or their own famed names like Gayle Rubin and Ellen Willis. But here instead of embracing pornographers and pimps, Solnit embraces men as representative women and feminists, praiseworthy gender rebels, and an even as a more oppressed wing of the category “women.”

I also disagree with every comment, but not because I'm unlucky enough to know so many T's. But rather because this sub has only been around for like a month and already there have been several "NOT-ALL-TRANS" threads followed by loads of sympathetic posts. This mantra is strange on a GC Critical sub, esp since it’s far more dominant than “NOT-ALL-MEN” which I guess by now has been all but buried. And yet it’s not men who are directly displacing both women and feminism, but MtF trans.

I really believe this exception stuff should be reserved for private conversation at best, because this is supposed to be a political movement, not a psycho-therapist office... it’s like group therapy where each gets to admit that they love certain of their oppressors... it was exactly this type of privatizing that helped to kill the second wave and drove many women into becoming psycho-therapists. Forget the patterns of oppression because, you see, after all, it’s really all my personal experience.

We must remember though that this started off as a right wing "politically correct" attack on the left and on radical feminism, but it's now become the "cancel culture" of the woke left and social media. But the extreme relativism which is being attacked certainly has taken over academia (post-modernism, post-feminism, post-values) often to the point of absolute absurdity and violent cultism.

The fact that two women here are portrayed as willing executioners is a hint that this criticism was originally owned by the right.

No way is it hetero women, as opposed to others. All women are subject to this because under male supremacy this is what women are--objects. As the second wave started to falter in the late 1970s, it came to be confused with the "sexual revolution" (the myth of women burning their bras, and being independent brassy and sexual) and then was split by the pro-sex movement which made the myth of the sexed woman revolutionary a reality. There were several known lesbians involved in this assault on the second wave and in the 1990s the s-m movement became almost synonymous with lesbian sex, and a small group of lesbians had to arise to counter male-centered objectifying sexuality (or today called sex-positive).

To the men of the ‘trans woman’ movement, being a woman is a form of slum tourism (also known as ghetto tourism or poverty tourism): members of a more economically and sociopolitically powerful class satisfy morbid curiosity about how the less fortunate live. This allows the more privileged to gain relief from the boredom and rigid expectations of their humdrum lives, as well as from the self-doubts plaguing their sense of worthiness.

It’s really not much different than the West’s view of Islam. It’s called Orientalism, which is a form of colonization and cultural appropriation. It implies both exploitation and tourism or emotional distance from the lives being observed, collected, and raised up as trophies. The mystery of the Orient and Orientals, and plumbing the mystery of women. The eternal woman question, and the eternal Oriental question. Neither ever to be solved, of course.

I don't know, do whistle-blowers expect anything? Do radicals expect friends? I never set out to have friends, nor do I esp note it when one leaves. There's no real way of knowing why people bow out of our lives, not for certain, but of course we can be quite sure if we're radicals. My guess is that the majority of gc people today are no longer radicals, but liberals. This is a good thing in some ways (more resistors) but not good in others. But if gc is a singular position or a single issue deal then there should be far more persons available to you than if you are a down the line radical. So, maybe that's cause for cheer.

That this might come from the right or be edited probably has not much to do with its central point, which is that values, external criteria, taking positions have given way to a non-judgmental, individualistic, and relativistic society. The point made is also scary in terms of authoritarianism and its ability to sway people who exercise little resistance, independence, or criticism in the face of suggestions or commands.

Are there such things as "femininity" and "masculinity" or are they just imaginary things humans made up? by Nohope in GenderCritical

[–]jkfinn 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I cannot think of any books or articles that explicitly deals with this subject, but the central idea is contained in almost all radical feminist books to varying degrees. Demonizing women is also the model of oppression of all minorities... So, before the US troops were sent to Vietnam, it had to be drilled into them that the Vietnamese were to be called "slopes," that they endorsed communism as an ideology.. If you want to just look at femininity, there is Susan Brownmiller's book "Femininity" which will point to the way this is employed to set up women for use, and violence. Also there's an art history book called "The Painted Witch."Any book that deals with women as devil or Eve or target... set up to be shot down.

Are there many Skeptics here? by strandkrypa in GenderCritical

[–]jkfinn 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

In my lifelong experience, the anti-war movement in the 1960s and the second wave sort of buried the word "skepticism" and replaced it with the deeper, more committed, more action-based concept of "critical thinking/acting." There was always a kind of ivory-tower, male, and overly deliberative sense tied to "skepticism." And many conservative and academic thinkers tended to employ it, so it also had a kind class tinge to it.

Both "femininity" and "masculinity" are defined by males. However, "Femininity" is a target, not an assignment, meant to paint women as Other. What makes up "masculinity" are merely qualities of both division and unity or how hierarchy is determined within the male identity or male club. "Femininity" is how women are subordinated; "masculinity" is how superiority or dominance is realized at women's expense.

Currently, the definition of "woman" ("adult human female") in particular is frequently upheld by hateful individuals and institutions to exclude trans women from womanhood.... We feel this small change goes a long way to show compassion...

Yeah, like radical feminists have real pull over Google’s dictionary. And only in the 17th century were any women referred to as “womanhood,” let alone the rebel ones. Trans delusion is far past mental derangement, and if it ever needed any “compassion” it could only come from the orderlies in an institution for crackpots. Anyway, when the revolution comes it will just blowup all these fussy details that the trans suits lobby for in strained voices.

Yeah, so many similarities, as you point out. Perhaps parents abdication is greater in transing than it is with anorexia though, because parents have more input into sex stereotypes in their raising of a child. I think of the advertising, fashion, and movie industries as being far more instrumental in anorexia than are the parents. I would also like to think that parents who for the most part must recognize trans for some kind of fad or gay thing, would seriously intervene, successfully or not, when to their child, it becomes way serious & extreme. (also, anorexia is often kept more hidden, i think)

Yeah, this was happening way before covid, I've used it myself. Lots of health insurance companies have a telehealth option now, I can use a my laptop or phone to see a dr for non serious issues and they can write prescriptions. And websites like virtuwell prescribe abx for uti based on symptoms.

Thanks. I partly misread the op, but this is good news becaue Dr. visits are always problematic during normal times.

Once again, moving sexism inside the sick male mind, rather than outward to the structures of male supremacy. It’s another liberal distraction. And cancel culture directed at individuals rather than at the real cancel culture of corporate media, academia, the State, and other powerful forces which cancel all of us on a daily basis--women especially

Why was Shatner called "cis" in the first place? Or why or how did he get in on this debate? I recall an early movie of his in which he played a sort of KKK organizer--chilling, because in the opening moments I mistook him for a labor agitator come to a small town.

And I was just thinking... if one writes an unpopular comment, and gets one person to agree, no one can take that single supporter away by a downvote. That's really a big victory, because no one can negate a vote or a vote of support.

Did you know you can now get antibiotics for a UTI without seeing a doctor in person in the USA! I guess that was approved within the last year.

Are you sure this is not just a covids-19 ruling? I can't imagine people self-prescribing abx. And as to the men question--most men over 50 have enlarged prostate glands, and often end up with lots of UTIs accompanying the use of either catheters or related surgeries.

It's impressive-----except for the downvoting (boo). It won't mean much in the early going, but down the road it will mean self-censorship via horizontal censorship as it certainly did and does at reddit.

Explanation of non-binary that's not sexist? by bradjohnsonishere2 in GenderCritical

Because of the necessity to invoke biology as a primary argument vs trans, there's been an eclipse of the socially constructed principle that was so central to radical feminism. This is where sex expectations were roundly criticized, esp the feminization and sexualization of women (or gender). To counter this socialization of females by males was, in effect, a form of undermining the false distinctions and differences between men and women, upon which much of women's oppression is based. This goes much further than the concept of non-binary and is far more radical and effective. There can be no non-binary if women are liberated from their marked off, enemy status.
