Featured Image -- 14235 I find it curious that when it comes to feminism as a movement it is often decreed that it must be “inclusive”.  Here is the thing though, feminism is the struggle for female liberation from the patriarchal structures and mandates of society.  The only requirement for membership in feminism is, hold on to your (pussy)-hats, being female.  Encompassing more than half of the world’s population should satisfy any musings about inclusivity and the like.

Concomitantly one can identify what feminism is if the stated goal or objective in question happens to is to aid in woman’s struggle against patriarchy.  If you’re not working toward increasing female liberation from patriarchy you are not ‘doing’ feminism.

So here is Empress-radfem expressing her thoughts on the recent Woman’s march, and she compares the feminist movement to other movements struggling for liberation.  She asks very important questions in the first paragraph that makes me wonder why it is beyond the pale to foist up an #all lives matter at a #BLM rally, but females in feminism can make no such claim.

Why is that?

“it’s no coincidence to me that liberals have taken aim at women holding signs about vaginas, uteruses, and specifically female-centered issues during the women’s march, but wouldn’t dare suggest that “black lives matter” activists should include “white lives” or “blue lives” in their signs and slogans too, nor did they see fit to inform occupy wall street protesters that its “not all rich people.”

women are the ones who have to step aside and make room at the podium for others. women are the ones who have to be reminded that it’s not okay to put ourselves first. women are the ones who need to sacrifice precious time, space, and voice at a public demonstration to make sure others are heard and seen, too. women are the ones who have no specific experience worth naming and discussing, no specific interests worth protecting.

woman does not exist.”
