Caity and Dan welcome MK Lords to the show. We begin by chatting about Tumblr (and how scary it can be) and the crazy feminists that Caity and MK found there, feminism, anarcha-feminists, Emma Goldman, prostitution, South Park, female quotas and how to get women in the military so they can kill people with drones too!
We talk about ‘white guilt’ and the nonsense of why people should have to bear the sins of their ancestors. MK tells us what ‘micro aggressions’ and ‘man spreading’ are and putting women’s rights in the west in context in regards to some other countries.
Caity tells us about her time working with women in Sri Lanka, how the media tells us of what they have “done for women” in countries like Afghanistan but women’s rights in other places such as Saudi Arabia are ignored. Dan can’t help himself and brings in strong women characters in old European folk and fairy tales and theories of matriarchal society in ancient Egypt and what matriarchal societies may have existed.
You must become a feminist to be a true revolutionary!
By Kid Cutback
Revolutionaries of many types maintain that resistance by any means necessary is required to stop momentous social injustice and environmental degradation. These activists recognize that those in power are the enemy and that the enemy will stop at nothing unless forced to do otherwise. Following this understanding, militancy is understood to be appropriate given the situation.
Applied appropriately, militancy is an approach to activism that pledges a steadfast dedication to physically intervene, when necessary, in the violation of living beings and the destruction of communities. This militancy is often rooted in healthy communal norms and an allegiance to the bodily integrity of all beings.
