I am a radical feminist.
I stand in support of the genius of Andrea Dworkin, a woman who brought us the idea that pornography was a power base for patriarchy. All of her writing is mind-blowing. It’s worth becoming a radical feminist just for the fact that you’re finally able to read real writers. Reading Heartbreak changed my life forever.
I love Mary Daly, Germaine Greer’s, Sheila Jeffreys and an untold many other women who have written for the cause of women.
I defy those who say that global patriarchy does not exist when evidence shows that all important positions of power are taken up by men. And they do a woeful job of being leaders. They control our food supply system, our factories, oil, government, anything of power and “importance”. They lie about women constantly, and they are forever appropriating the work of female scientists and pretending it is their own. It was a woman who discovered the universe, and a woman who discovered chromosomes and yet, despite their constant mistakes in the field (read Cordelia Fine to find out how men have behaved in “science” and how they reach shoddy results through guesswork), people believe that great scientists are men. This is what Mary Daly calls “patriarchal reversal.”
I want to see patriarchy fall, and it will. It is destined for extinction.
