Sorry! (Carnival of Radical Feminists, pt 1)

  1. Go Winnie! Thanks for these great links, looking forward to your part 2. No worries about being late. We’re on Radfem time, not Patriarchy time. πŸ™‚



  2. Thanks for publshing so much of my writing (too much,really). I going through a tough time, so it is a big boost.

  3. […] March 23, 2009 Posted by antiplondon in Radical Feminism. trackback Part one, up at Incorrigible Radical Feminist. Our very popular (’popular’) What are we Reclaiming For? is […]

  4. Love your avatar, Rebecca! (And your writings, of course!)

  5. Julie Bindel does it again with her idea that the lesbian is the ultimate rejection of male supremacy. I thought it interesting that she mentioned lesbian identity as a conscious choice. Or as a friend of mine once said, “there are choosers and there are born lesbians,” which is why we have these debates… it’s both.

    30 years ago, lesbian in England really raised the barn of consciousness. Sheila Jeffreys was mentioned as “keeping the faith,” and that’s what it really is all about, our undying faith in the freedom fight the self-possession and the rejection of male colonization that is the lesbian! Thanks, that article is still the greatest, and so is Julie!!!

  6. Thanks for the inclusion with all of these great posts. πŸ™‚

  7. And, oh bow wow wow wow! I just read all the letters to Julie Bindel’s piece and the het attack machine is going full bore over there!

    I tried to sign up for comment to give Julie some help. The article was smashing, too bad even most women don’t get what she’s talking about.

  8. wow, look at all the goodies! it’s like you just opened the door to a whole new world for me. thanks.

    being in school, how do you find time to read all this stuff and write a blog yourself??

  9. Thanks for including me, Demonista.I’m planning to go back to the blogosphere soon. πŸ™‚

  10. Thanks everyone πŸ™‚

    Rebecca, your writing more than deserved to be included in the carnival πŸ˜€

    Avostarfish, yes indeed! I usually identify as queer (it’s all up in the air, really; i use pansexual/queer/bisexual/straight/gay man/etc at diff times), and I really appreciate the Lesbian feminist critique of heterosexuality/intercourse/nuclear family/domination-submission dynamics. I agree with most of it, even as someone who is sexually involved with men. I was getting into this earlier today on facebook over me posting a Marilyn Frye excerpt on heterosexism in women’s studies from feminist reprise, accusing her of not respecting heterosexual women. oyvay!

    harmony, mmm, goodies! hope you learn. your very welcome. hahaha–how i get stuff done? i procrastinate, including on my blogging πŸ˜›

    maggie, hope you do come back soon. don’t be a stranger! πŸ˜‰
