sarcasticpancakes asked: so I don't get it do you not like trans* women or...?
I don’t like men. Particularly not ones that pretend to be women.
thentheysaidburnher asked: Hey, just in regard to your last post, many radical feminists do believe that men are by nature violent and that rape is a product of both entitlement socialization and their biology. I just posted something by terri strange that goes into that.
Thats interesting and ill go read the article now. Thats why i specifically talked about gender abolitionists as opposed to radical feminists. The idea behind gender abolition is the idea that there is no innate behavior with regards to born sex.
Radical feminists may disagree in some cases but I feel like that is an innate part of gender abolition (if you believe some gender roles like masculine violence are inherent then the abolition of gender would not be radical enough to overturn the current toxic system, you would also need to eradicate the culture of violence among men, or at least separate yourself from it which is where seperationalists come in)
I am not saying that it is or isn’t innate necessarily, I have yet to form my own opinions on that specifically since it does seem so very widespread (like as much as gender norms culture to culture vary there is always this element of violence it seems but whether that is because violence denotes “alpha” or because violence is innate im not sure)
Terri is great but she is on the cusp of being a biological determinism, which is opposite of radical feminist.
Biological essentialism is not the same as biological determinism. The fact that men are innately violent does not therefore mean they have some sort of natural rule over women. This is plainly visible in nature where most animals live in clans of females with men on the periphery. Females band together to live apart from males.
Radical Feminism is about understanding the roots of patriarchy and working to dismantle it. In a world devoid of gender men will still be rapists.
