“He For She” or, “What About the Men?”

Hypotaxis

*This piece was a collaborative effort between myself and the amazingly brilliant Phonaesthetica. (If you’re not reading her blog, you should, because she’s an incredible writer.)

It’s review day. Let’s clarify, once more, the differences between radical and liberal feminism.

Liberal feminism asserts that women’s liberation comes through equality with men, and therefore positions men as a benchmark, the “best possible case,” the default setting, the gold standard, the brass ring – if only to be respected like a man, if only to be paid like a man, or to be free to “choose pornography” or fuck anything that moves like a man. In liberal feminism, male is aspirational.

In liberal feminism, society itself isn’t broken, we just need to learn how to better exist within it – like men.

Equality Michigan @Equality_MI & and Anti-Trust Laws (USA)

Gender Identity Watch

A lesbian lawyer has posited that Equality Michigan, a homophobic GLBT rights organization that has targeted the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, has violated the Sherman Act.  The Sherman Act outlaws “every contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade,” and any “monopolization, attempted monopolization, or conspiracy or combination to monopolize.”  The U.S. Department of Justice handles Sherman Act complaints, and you can file a complaint here.

That Equality Michigan seduced your corporation and other corporations: a.k.a organizations, to enter into a conspiracy to restrain trade and commerce among several states is patently obvious. As you well know, the Clayton Act extended the Sherman Act to encompass “private parties” and provides for recovery of treble damages and the costs of the suit…
