  • me: republicans and democrats are both useless
  • dad: yeah, right on
  • me: both parties are ineffective, minor factional splits within the same general ideology, and their representatives are completely out of touch with the average person's reality
  • dad: yeah, I guess
  • me: the only thing that can save us now is absolute revolution
  • dad: wait what
  • me: we start by dismantling white supremacy and patriarchal hierarchies, adopting the practice of decolonization, while simultaneously retiring capitalism and private property, and redistributing all wealth and resources
  • dad: no stop-
  • me:

Liberals are like “it’s fine if you want every child in public school to recite a nationalist oath in unison while facing the country’s flag every day but don’t put ‘under God’ in it that’s fucked up”

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my irl friend comrademcbotbyl, it’s that the best way to deal with someone irl who’s completely mis/uninformed but doesn’t want to listen to facts is to say, “That’s silly!” in a really loud, condescending voice, and then walk away.

On the importance of Meseeks and Destroy’s darkest scene

Rick and Morty is a great cartoon. I made a post a while back gushing over it and included some youtube links. 

Recently, an episode aired that has stirred up backlash because it contained a graphic attempted rape scene. I’d totally be one of the dissenters of Meseeks and Destroy, if Rick and Morty handled the scene like certain other family guyesque shows do — the survivor as a punchline, no repercussions for the “lovable” rapist, the act itself is downplayed, the survivor’s body is panned over and shown as desirable, etc. 

But it didn’t. In fact, I think Rick and Morty had one of the better representations of rape in comedy I’ve ever seen.

Spoilers and very long analysis under the cut.

amillionthingsicouldsay asked: You say you're against liberal feminism. What does that mean? How do you define "liberals" or "liberal feminists/feminism"?

fauxcyborg:

I’m against liberal feminism because I’m against liberalism. I’m a socialist, I don’t think we can achieve liberation from men in in a capitalist society even one with regulations. 

Liberal feminism doesn’t really threaten the status quo and doesn’t commit. It believes that the most effective way for women to stop being oppressed is through the state - legal methods. It doesn’t see the state as an inherently violent patriarchal tool in of itself and reforming an inherently violent patriarchal tool can only take us so far. 

Of course its important to focus on the world we live in now and ideological purity at the expense of how I actually live is ridiculous. 

Lberal feminism believes that the problem isn’t that men have the power to hurt and abuse, but rather than women don’t also have access to that power (eg: defending Hillary Clinton who supports imperialist policies in the global south, being super thrilled about women who break through the glass ceiling to own car companies that cover up murder).

Liberal feminism wants women to have access to the same power as men. I don’t. I think the power and societal advantages men have are born via violence are not exactly what I think a just world needs.

Liberal feminism views equality as a step-by-painful-step process of an individual woman (particularly white, Western women) stepping on the backs of other women to get more power and has this weird belief that sisterhood will make them turn around and help someone else up instead of safeguarding their own power. 

Liberal feminism is individualistic. Liberal feminism is ineffective. Liberal feminism prioritizes certain women’s lives over others. Liberal feminism says things like “i’m not an angry lesbian hair feminist so you should take me seriously because I love men”. Liberal feminism says that it isn’t men they’re angry at but the patriarchy (exactly what is the patriarchy made of, ghosts???). Liberal feminism doesn’t name the problem and doesn’t see things as systemic.
