Defining ‘Violence’; or, why liberal feminism is full of shit

DAMN STRAIGHT.

Last week the feminist philosophy journal Hypatia published an article by Rebecca Tuvel, assistant professor of philosophy at Rhodes College in America. It has caused quite a stir. In her paper, Tuvel asks (not unreasonably) why the popular response to “unapologetic race-faker” Rachel Dolezal has been so negative, while “Woman Of The Year” Caitlyn Jenner has been lauded by the liberal-left. Beginning with the premise that transgenderism is utterly excellent (not a good place to start, but hey ho), Tuvel suggests that since the criticisms levelled against Dolezal could just as easily be levelled against Jenner, we should accept the right of individuals to adopt a ‘transracial’ identity. In other words, maybe Rachel Dolezal is black!

It hasn’t gone down well on social media. Tuvel has received a great deal of hate mail and Hypatia have since apologised for publishing the piece, describing the vitriolic response…

A conservative rape apologist

Another great essay by Purple Sage.

Purple Sage

This article from the Federalist came across my news feed today and HOLY CRAP. I can’t remember the last time I saw such a horrific rape apologist train wreck. Conservative writer Suzanne Venker essentially argues that men want sex more often than women and therefore it’s women’s inevitable duty to just lie there and take it whether we want it or not.

Get your barf bucket ready before proceeding!

We Need To Admit That Men Need Sex More Than Women Do

“When it comes to sex, men and women have very different needs. This used to be something people understood (my mother told me as much when I was young, although I didn’t believe her), but in a culture that insists the sexes are “equal,” as in the same, that understanding has vanished. As a result, so has any sympathy for men’s unique sexual desire.”

Who says that men and…

Don’t Let Them Come Back From This AGAIN

Fuck, yeah!

First Draft

You guys, I am enjoying, so much, the humiliation of Donald Trump and Paul Ryan, the jackass Trump rented to run Congress for him so he could play president.

I should be a bigger person, but THEY TRIED TO LET INSURANCE COMPANIES OUT OF COVERING NEWBORN BABIES, so I’m gonna keep laughing for a few more days and I don’t really care if it gives some imaginary non-racist non-sexist Trump voter who just wants a job a sad.

But as I point and laugh at President Failstick and as I give all due credit to the Democratic voters who jammed phone lines and went to town halls and hounded Republican stooges who hadn’t heard from their constituents in months, I get…

This babe nails it

It’s about the supreme court nomination.  I would have reblogged it but there wasn’t a way to do it, so I had to copy & paste the url into my own blog post.  No biggie, just click on it & read it for yourself.  She fucking nails it.  & she’s FUCKING RIGHT.  Talk about dropping the  ball, the Democrats could be playing for the Cleveland Browns.

When Is It Ever Gonna End?

THIS FAT FUCK IS OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT.

Obviously he’s no better at playing golf than he is at being president or anything else he’s ever done in his life.  The Greatest Loser.  That’s him.

If you voted for him & you are still on his “team”, then I have no words for you & I really don’t want to be your friend at all.  If you’re a member of my family, then … I’ll hold my tongue.

If you voted for him & you now have “regrets”, because you are losing your healthcare, your HEAP, your Meals on Wheels, your union membership, everything else you thought was sacrosanct, I don’t feel sorry for you at all, because THIS FAT FUCK told you ALL THROUGH HIS CAMPAIGN JUST WHO THE FUCK HE WAS & WHAT HIS VALUES WERE.  & YOU ALL CHEERED.  & to say now, “Gee, I didn’t think he meant it” or “I guess he lied” just shows how you WEREN’T PAYING ATTENTION.  I mean – oh BOO HOO HOO.  Lke the saying goes, get over it, already.  Just who the fuck do you think you were dealing with?  Jesus Christ?

If you voted for Gary Johnson, you are just a selfish asshole & I wouldn’t waste my time on you.  Libertarianism is just a seven-syllable word for selfishness.

If you voted for Jill Stein, I do understand the political motivations for your vote IF you were voting to help the Green Party get to that 5% mark that (for some reason) political parties have to get to get financial funding.  According to http://heavy.com/news/2016/11/how-many-votes-electoral-did-jill-stein-get-in-the-presidential-election/, Stein & the Greens got 1% of the vote, which is really quite an advance for the Greens, up from .036% in 2012.  However, I have to say … you could have voted for a woman who would NOT be stripping healthcare from millions of people.  Who would NOT be ending HEAP payments in the dead of winter.  Who would NOT be ending Meals on Wheels & funding for the arts & NPR & PBS.  & dozens of other things that HELP PEOPLE.

If you decided not to vote at all … you still made a choice.  & you chose that FAT FUCK.  YES, YOU DID.  By choosing to stay home, to stay at work, to go out to lunch instead of packing a lunch & standing in line to vote, to not check into early voting in your state, to do WHATEVER IT TOOK to get your voice heard … you, by your silence, endorsed the hate & the meanness the entire USA is now having to endure.  & not the the US!   He & his band of assholes are going to inflict this on the entire world.  MARK MY WORDS.

Any kind of protest vote you made because you REALLY wanted Bernie Sanders … all I can say is, HE TOLD YOU WHAT HE WANTED YOU TO DO.  & YOU DIDN’T DO IT.  So maybe you weren’t really that much into him, after all.  Maybe you never would have showed up at the polls to vote for him, either.  Who knows?  It’s easy to say, Oh, I would have voted for Bernie … after the fact.  Lots of THAT going around.  & if you voted for that FAT FUCK when you REALLY wanted Bernie, then … you’re just a fucking idiot.  & you probably don’t like women, either.  Not in power, anyway.

Whatever your reasons were … by not choosing Hillary Clinton … & honestly, I DO NOT CARE if you “didn’t like her”.  I do not care if she was not “feminist” enough for you.  I do not care if she was an “old hag” & you’re some dude who only like “hot babes”.  I do not care if you’re a fundamentalist Christian & your only issue is the ending of legal abortion (which won’t end abortion, you fucking moron).  She was the ONLY CHOICE.  By not choosing her, millions of Americans are now going to suffer.  For your fantasy of black & white TV world.  For your magical thinking.  For your idiotic, selfish reasons.  & that’s ALL they were.

I have barely been able to write since the election because of the daily outrages & a depression that has only gotten worse.  But to be quiet is to be complicit.  & I won’t be.  I will NEVER be.  This administration is evil & a scourge upon our nation.

  • Everybody!  Trump’s tweets about Issue X are just a distraction!  We need to focus on Issue Y!  Eyes on the prize!
  • Please!  Don’t have a demonstration!  Demonstrations are not useful anymore.  The press won’t cover it and it will just give Trump’s people an opportunity for violence.
  • Hey!  Trump’s tweets aren’t a distraction; his tweets are the issue.  We need to counter them.
  • You can’t call it a “Women’s March!”  That will make men feel unwelcome.  Also, you are not doing enough to include Group Z!
  • You shouldn’t hit Nazis.  That will make people think we’re violent and against free speech.
  • Don’t knit silly pink pussy cat hats!  That takes away from the seriousness of the Resistance.  It’s too girly.
  • Town Halls aren’t the answer; we need to elect Candidate A to the DNC!
  • Hey!  Everybody!  Everyone needs to quit telling other people what not to do to resist Trump!…
