QotD: “Gender is internal to patriarchy. There is no meaningful continuation of gender outside of patriarchy”

you aren’t a marxist leftist if you don’t believe in sex oppression and reproductive exploitation of the female. marx was a fuckin terf, engels was a fuckin terf, you loons. you vapid goofs. literally that is the basis of collectivist-communalist political theories, the bourgeois exploitation of female reproductive labour as a way to serve the maintenance of a large proletariat wage slavering workforce

the tie is inextricable and this ‘soft queer radical communist’ tripe has no actual basis of intelligent, coherent thought behind it
liberalist tarrycock…neocaptialist idiocy

why have the queer cabal co-opted all of the edge with none of the analysis? this is starting to become more and more apparent to me and is disconcerting. it is a real obstacle to liberatory direct action when identity politics take precedence over materialist analysis.

if your identity is dependent upon the capitalist consumption of goods engineered to perpetuate the oppression of the marginalized sex caste (females), you aren’t a fuckin marxist leftist. you’re a che fanboy with a gun fetish and a fat wallet.
ridiculous

I’ve seen the argument a few times now that the oppression of women isn’t based on reproductive exploitation, and I have to ask, what was it based on then? Do you think it was just a random choice, one gender had to be oppressed, and women just drew the short straw?

Exactly. I have my own theories on the origin of patriarchy but it always comes down to our existence with female reproductive organs and male exploitation thereof.

I meant this post half-jokingly but only in tone. This is a serious blindspot in contemporary leftist politics that is intentionally constructed to prevent female activists from realizing their right to liberation outside of misogynist control.

Genderqueer theory even ruined Marxist thought and praxis. Sigh…is nothing safe from their Jonestown-esque garbage?

patriarchy isn’t simply gender with a malfunction. it’s not an unfortunate accident, it’s not gender misapplied. it’s not a problem you solve by “teaching respect for all genders”. gender is internal to patriarchy. there is no meaningful continuation of gender outside of patriarchy.

and by extension gender is internal to capitalism. gender abolition isnt possible w/o abolishing capitalism, and vice versa. patriarchy, and gender, is a deliberate function of class society.

Because patriarchy was built on the exploitation of women’s assumed reproductive ability if we can’t critique reproduction and sex that has reproductive potential then we can’t really critique patriarchy at all.

  1. You are definitely correct that there is “a serious blindspot in contemporary leftist politics” around the issue of transgender. I have a different take on it than you. The capitalist class is addicted to women’s unpaid labour in the home as a means to look after current and future wage slaves, free of charge to bosses. That means maintaining the belief in women’s inferiority, which in turn means continuing to promote sex stereotypes. That is why the neoliberal Right is so keen to promote some key transgender ideas. A “progessive” trend that attacks women is heaven-sent.

  2. This isn’t a ‘different take’, as this post isn’t about the right’s attitude to sex roles, and you haven’t said anything a radical feminist would disagree with.

    Both the left and the right in all their various strands are misogynist, they just argue over exactly how women should be oppressed.

    Also, parts of the left are pretty keen on women’s unpaid domestic labour too, a woman hiring a cleaner is seen as morally worse than a man paying to rape a trafficked woman.
