As someone who you would call a radical feminist, I'm wondering what it is
that makes radical femonsm bullshit. I agree that things like Maternal
Prefernece in custory cases are bad ideas, and sexist, but I also see a
world in which women have not won equality before the law, and a world in
which rape subjects women to violence and to the constant fear thereof. I
suppose what I'm saying is if you don't feel the fear and feel the
discrimination of being a woman, you don't know what its like to be
subjugated. This is not a world of equality, it is a world of
subordination that proports to be equal. And there is a "dominant sex"
and a "subordinated sex," those facts we cannot ignore.
I think sometimes men get discriminated against on the basis of gender,
and that's a bad thing. But I think that the web page put up absolutely
trivializes the existence of a world of gender hierarchy.
If you don't believe this domination/subordination "bullshit" I recommen
Catherine MacKinnon's newly released textbook Sex Equality and the Law.
