The ‘inclusivity’ stupid train just keeps on chugging along over at ShoutoutJMU.  Not an argument or even a shade of nuance is to be found there.  Just dull eyed listless opprobrium meant to keep people in line and critical analysis at bay.

It is an insipid shit show, and we all know by now that the RPOJ is a vehicle build specifically for shit-shows.  But let us not tarry further – let’s see what this “feminist” resource has to offer on the subject of the intersection between radical feminism and queer politics.

—–

“Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists are one of the worst kinds of people out there. You’re not a feminist, so you’ve been canceled.”

Wow.  Such insight, much praxis, good enlightening…  Starting your thoughts off with insults and slander always sets the stage for a charitable, honest, and productive discussion. 

   The only aspect missing is a strawman caricature of your opponents position to savagely beat and make your fellow besotted acolytes feel powerful….

Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists. These are “feminists” who consistently choose to leave trans folks OUT of the conversation.”

Radical feminism, or effective feminism, is the project to liberate women (Adult human females) from the patriarchal constructs of society.  Generally speaking radical feminist theory and praxis revolves around identifying social structures in society that are oppressing women, raising the consciousness of women being affected by said structures, then analyzing and deconstructing said oppressive edifices with the goal of the emancipation of women from patriarchy. 

   A helpful insight provided free of charge – One of the primary axis of oppression women experience is based on their sex.  The means of this oppression is the construct of gender which dictates and imposes the inferior role for women in society.

   The radical feminist solution is working toward the abolition of gender in society, because the of the harmful nature of the construct for both women and men. 

   Radical Feminists are therefore about the liberation of women in society, and centring women in that struggle.  The activist world is big, if you’re not feeling like you’re the primary concern in Feminism (the struggle for female liberation) then start your own damn movement and stop co-opting feminism proper for goals that do not focus on the female struggle against patriarchy.

  Also since trans identified females (Tif’s) are in fact, female, they are subject to the same sex based oppression all females face and indeed are included under the aegis of effective female-centric feminism. 

“Why? Because, well they suck.”

Queer theorists and the SJW ilk are just full of profoundly deep explanations for their assertions.  To be fair though, they are gangbusters at circular arguments, but that’s still coming; so hold on to your hats folks, the circus ride of abjectly plaintive idiocy has yet to crest.

“The idea is that “transwomen” aren’t really women because they “grew up men” and still “receive all the benefits of the patriarchy”.

Trans women, or trans identified males (Tim’s) are not women.  Male socialization is unavoidable for natal males born into our society.  You’ll have about as much success as renouncing your white privilege if you happen to be born white.  In other words – your personal subjective solution to the dominant ethos of society is fucking irrelevant.

“In turn, they use the same rhetoric with transmen “who grew up women” and are now “trying to receive the benefits of the patriarchy”

They actually don’t.  It is risible enough to deny the potency and ubiquitous nature of male socialization, but to gloss over the fact that much of radical feminism is built on material, factual, reality, is really quite egregious.  Furthermore since TiF’s are female they are indeed most welcome in effective feminism. 

“Either way, someway, all transpeople contribute to the patriarchy and therefore, do not deserve feminism.”

Said no radical feminist ever.  But its damn the torpedoes and full steam ahead when beating the the crap out of the straw feminist bogywoman you’ve created. 

That was honestly hard to write.”

It must have been hard to write considering the sheer magnitude of bullshit per square centimetre demonstrated.

Transwomen are women.

Transmen are men.”

It wouldn’t be a ‘woke’ SJW article without at least one thought terminating cliche, combined of course, with a circular definition of what a woman is. (i.e. What is a woman, a woman is anyone who says they are woman [but what is a woman…??]. – You can’t define a term by itself.)

     Sorry, not sorry, but the above statements are not arguments, they are strictures meant to discriminate between the ideologically sound and the unwashed.  They are endpoints meant to discourage questioning and silence dissent.  You many fuck off now with your thinly veiled ‘woke’ misogyny at your earliest convenience.

“They aren’t “men who grew up to be women and women who grew up to be men”. They’re people who sometimes grew up in the wrong bodies.”

Wrong bodies or not, biological sex is immutable. 

“Don’t even get me started with NB people. OOMPH. The DISRESPECT.”

  So we’ll combat the evil of the gender binary by creating another false binary?  Seems to be layering another layer of oppression into a already terribly oppressive system.  Woo, the progress…

“Rhetoric from TERFs has been used for years to silence people. But right now, me and everyone else in the gendery and queer community are amused…”

  Wow, winning the oppression Olympics must feel soooo fucking good.  

You and the ‘gendery-queery’ community continue to avoid speaking and acting on the elephant in the room: the epidemic of patriarchally endorsed male violence.  Violent males continue to kill women and trans people at alarming rate, pretty much without repercussion and you’re banging on about experiencing repression at the hands of the Radical Feminists? 

   Get back to me when you start tackling the root of the problem instead of whinging on about a small collection of females who are rightly calling bullshit your inconsistent, misogynistic, and female erasing ideology. 

“Some folks are discussing… […]”

  Skipping tangential meanderings/virtue signalling.

TERFs are exclusive, and demand their turf space. But, people like me aren’t going to let them have it.”

The struggle against male power is age old, and the misogyny exhibited here is nothing new.  Women will rise, women will struggle, and women will prevail against patriarchy in whatever form it happens to take.  Thankyouverymuch. 

“Even when TERFs include race or ability, their sole goal to deconstruct the patriarchy and battle gender stereotypes and fight for equality of gender….is counter intuitive. They’re not fighting for all women.

Radical feminists are struggling for female liberation.  Gender is a toxic hierarchy by definition, and thus, no semblance of “equality” can be struck within the system. 

    The only counterintuitive aspect of your statement is attempting to lump males into a movement that strives for female liberation.  It makes about as much sense as asking for management’s opinions on how to run a union strike.  

“Why should I contribute to feminist conversations… […]”

I’m solidly with you on that one, because other than creating a writable RPOJ-moment, the value of your contributions (at least to the feminist movement) approaches zero.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.”
