"There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit and it's filled with people who are full of shit and the vermin of the world inhabit it..."- Sweeny Todd
This post has been coming for a while now, I will no longer promote or defend feminist ideology. I can be an egalitarian and not be a feminist, I can be sex-positive and not be a feminist, and I can be for gender liberation and not be a feminist. I don't know where this road will take me but one thing is for sure at least I know I am a sinner. Judge me, and fuck you, stop playing God; my only solace is that someday judgement will come for the wicked.
"The only vice that can not be forgiven is hypocrisy." ~ William Hazlitt
I cannot support an ideology that consistently props me up on some pedestal and tells me I'm empowered and yet I am a victim, fuck that. I have all the empowerment I need by being the woman I want to be and if someone has problem with it, fuck 'em. I am not disadvantaged because of teh menz, if I am disadvantaged it's because of my own choices.
I am not an asexual/lesbian/heterosexual(self-loathing) man-hater nor am I a poor victim of male predators seeking to exploit/discriminate against me. I am a heterosexual woman who loves the men in her life and I happen to think men deserve the same rights given to me, and in areas where the men are unable to have the same rights/options, they should have the equivalent. Period.
"Lady Catherine why are you being so cruel to feminists?" you might be wondering. They do not fit my needs or worldview, and feminism has become so dogmatic and so hateful towards anyone who doesn't share it's worldview and I'm sorry but that simple fact is insulting to me as a egalitarian person, I am willing to listen to an alternate viewpoint, but I am not willing to listen to an ideologue hammer off some ridiculous rhetoric that doesn't mesh with reality.
As a libertarian, I am well aware of the conflict of ideology of being an egalitarian and libertarian, I'll clarify my views. I believe charity is the most effective ways to get funding for a cause, I do not believe the state should provide these services.
"Freedom, morality, and the human dignity of the individual consists precisely in this; that he does good not because he is forced to do so, but because he freely conceives it, wants it, and loves it." ~ Mikhail BakuninThat sums up my feelings on the matter, I would support a charity devoted to men's health and other men's issues simply for the fact that it is just and the right thing to do. I believe in the natural rights of property, life, and liberty. I believe in voluntary egalitarianism as far as resources go and I believe in equal rights for everyone as far as natural rights go. This essay sums up my problems with coercive egalitarianism, but I have absolutely no problems with voluntary egalitarianism. Things like hiring discrimination? Protest the place, boycott the product or service, and find work in a place that won't discriminate against you.
Thank you all for your time. In frith
For my readers:
"Do we desire to be cradled, and then carried throughout life to our graves by this partisan propelled bureaucratic monstrosity? ...As individuals of sovereign dignity, are we now so terrified, bewildered, and impotent that our main purpose is to seek asylum from the potential hazards of freedom? Have we no faith in our natural strengths and abilities?" ~ Sergei Hoff
