And yet another feminist in the msm makes it all about feminists.
And they’re even running a poll about it.
Apparently feminism has been reduced to public spats about who has ownership of the brand. Feminism these days apparently no longer cares about much else. The co-option is complete.
Feminism, at least that faction of it that has a public voice, has now been entirely subsumed by capitalism. How the patriarchy must be cheering! Look at these feminists in these cat fights about who is allowed to be a feminist!
But we’re not complaining. While they fight about nothing, they aren’t focusing on us.
I’ve always had a wry little laugh at Bob Ellis when he sets to lamenting about the moral demise of the ALP. He shouldn’t take it so seriously! But not anymore. It is heartbreaking to watch as a vision you believed in sells out to the degree that it is unrecognizable. To watch as it becomes the property of a handful of white middle class women who figured out how to make a name and a living for themselves by being just feminist enough to gain a foothold in both camps.
Feminism was about equality, and that includes equality between women, not just equality with men. Feminism was about honesty, and shining intelligence, feminism was an analytic tool that was unique and adopted by many seeking to expose all kinds of inequality.
Feminism and feminists helped me save my own life.
It’s enough to make a strong woman weep. Weep, I tell you! Feckin’ bloody weep!
