  1. Wow, that actually sounds like it was written by a radfem!

  2. I love this definition! I think I’m makig a poster out of it.

  3. “Wow, that actually sounds like it was written by a radfem!”

    Or at the very least, someone who actually understands the concept of gender – a category of people that includes all radfems, but is not limited to radfems.

    “I love this definition! I think I’m makig a poster out of it.”

    Cool!

  4. I would love to share that, but I just know the sort of comments it will generate about how ‘bad things happen to boys too, you know’.

  5. I’ve seen a lot of libfems sharing this quote.

    How do they reconcile it with the belief that gender is a matter of identity emanating from one’s brain/soul?

  6. jodiethalegend,

    You can always use it as an opportunity to explain how boys are not systematically oppressed solely for being male (happy to give you some pointers if you like?).

    Donkey Skin,

    Quite!

  7. Donkey Skin, liberals are very eager to “include” (force) everyone in(to) their movement, whether the people in question really understand and embrace the ideology or not. They have pretty low ideological standards. If you are not one of them, you really have to spell it out to them, in order for them to get it and once you do, they hate you.

    Plus saying “gender is a social construct” as if they were the ones who discovered it (they were not, the idea was definitely around during the second wave of feminism, at least) makes them feel smart. I’m not even sure what they think it means.

  8. They still love gender, they just don’t like the extremes of gender. Just like they love capitalism, economic inequality, war, neo-liberalism, they just don’t like the extremes. Can’t we all get along, etc.
