So Clarissa, of Clarissa’s Blog, addressed my entry on funfems by saying that I shouldn’t call them funfems. And the discussion ended by her saying:
“[she said-]“- Exploitation of women in this statement still refers to the PIV, I presume? Which is still sexual intercourse?”
[I said-] No… exploitation of women means the exploitation of women. Treating women as second class citizens, treating women as objects, treating women as a means by which men’s constructed needs can be satisfied. Which includes, but is not by far limited to, PIV.”
[she said-] – So removing the empty meaningless verbiage, you do equate sexual practices crowds of women dare to enjoy with their exploitation? That is precisely a condescending woman-hating attitude of yours I’m bringing to your attention. It is not your place to tell other people, people whose experiences you cannot conceivably share what constitutes their exploitation. On the subject of exploitation of a group to which you do not belong, you cannot possibly have anything legitimate to say. Your only acceptable role is to sit quietly and listen. Anything else is grossly offensive to that group of people. Got it?
This sociopathic funfem sure taught me a lesson. When I see something wrong happen to someone whose group I do not identify with, I should sit down and shut up. Because the best thing to do when one sees evil is to sit down and shut up. I have nothing legitimate to say about natalism because I am happy with my life. I have nothing legitimate to say about child trafficking or child abuse because I am not a child. I have nothing legitimate to say about racism because I am white. I have nothing legitimate to say about rape or sexism because I am a man. So instead of denouncing all these things, I should just shut the fuck up.
And then they wonder why I hate people with a passion. Her goal is to intimidate anyone who disagrees with funfem and make me feel guilty for speaking up against the evils she supports. This is sick, evil and twisted. Suicide really is wasted on the sensitive.
I will never stop being a radfem ally unless radfem women tell me to stop. No one else has any business telling me to stop. The fact that I am a man does not mean I will sit idly and collaborate with the exploitation and marginalization of women, and fuck you to anyone who thinks I should.
Now let me be clear, I agree that I should be held to suspicion for being a man talking about radfem topics, and I think I am making sufficient due diligence in researching these topics before I write about them. I am reading radfem books and radfem blogs, and I’m always learning. I am open to rebuttals on my entries. Clarissa, of Clarissa’s Blog, on the other hand, does not want to refute anything I said: she wants to shut me up.
Finally, a couple other comments by Clarissa, of Clarissa’s Blog, during this exchange:
It’s sad that nobody wants you and you have no idea about what sex is all about.
*I* have the right to express my opinion on my blog about your attempts to analyze a political movement you know nothing about.
Apparently I don’t know anything about sex or feminism, and no one wants me (does that include my wife or…?). I must be one dumb
bimbo dick. Or maybe all my opinions are by default invalid because I am a dumb bimbo dick? Gee, I dunno. Political movements are hard. *giggle*
