What has the Women’s March accomplished, beyond mere visibility? | Jessa Crispin | Opinion | The Guardian
Women’s March // Advertisement

Since its inception, Women’s March has faced criticism by many within the feminist community. The March and its participants, we heard from many critics, marginalized Native women, disabled women, women of color, trans women and Jewish women to present a very safe, white, middle of the road protest. [...] Others called the organization out for not having any real agenda, and for focusing solely on what it was against – the Trump administration and Republican control of Congress – and not what it was for. This is a common problem for organizations that begin as protest movements.

How #MeToo revealed the central rift within feminism today | News | The Guardian
It’s not a generational divide, but rather a split between two competing visions of feminism – social and individualist. // from a theoretical point of view feminism is socialism and socialism embraces feminism. feminism is a leg a pillar for socialism .. vs capitalisn neo hyper individualismus - what came first - feminism (sufferagettes) or socialism (atley, et al) historically, feminism came first. but interestingly not in germany. what is german timeline of feminism sufferagete womens vote and workers rights (pension and health and free sundays)

Are the women speaking up about sexual assault taking down celebrities or the patriarchy? / LGBTQ Nation
Within a patriarchal society that transmits distorted binary gender extremes, questions inevitably arise: How dare women demand their reproductive freedoms, which would reduce or even take away my (the male) making the decision whether to carry or abort my genetic offspring? How dare a woman choose not to marry a man? How dare women compete with me for a high social position?
How dare gay men think of coming onto me? How dare trans men take on the privileges by transitioning that I have “earned” from birth? How dare trans women relinquish male privilege and betray their gender (read as betray patriarchy itself)? How dare intersex people not choose to “become either one or the other”?
Toxic forms of hypermasculinity require the promotion and use of firearms to keep at bay the intensive psychosocial compulsive fear and dread of penetration from bullets, and by extension the gaze of gay and bisexual men, and the female gaze since patriarchy promises males the right to the aggressive outward intrusive gaze, the right of penetration of “others.” And when patriarchal social and family structures converge with patriarchal religious systems, which reinforce strictly defined gender hierarchies of male domination, women and girl’s oppression and oppression of those who transgress sexual-, sexuality-, and gender binaries and boundaries became inevitable.

The Pledge | 8th February 2018 - YouTube
arguments against violence don't hold up in a perverse violent opressive environment. (see hedges, cornel west, Malcom X, etc) especially if your elite "fellows" sell you down the river (barack Obama eric holder and co). Or see Vietnam, Buddhists burned themselves (self-immolation) up because of the injustice and their beliefs. Or Bobby Sands et al. Indefinite hunger strikes. Or Guantanamo/AbuGhraib if I am not mistaken, people there went on hunger strike. //&! https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/series/womens-rights-100-revolutionary-years - Suffragette //&! the women who chose to sit in protest on the bus in the white section, and the what followed blacks entering white establishments. a knowingly intentional provocation not answered by law and order but by public violence. //&! or the 2011 uk youth riots - debatable, but a grain of salt, violence answered w violence in this case looting ... what else? a bank? which is an impossibility. or looting your neighborhood block of flat Grenfell? // especially institutionalized structural oppression regime against minorities. or institutional disadvantaged.
