Radical Beyond Pronouns: On Gender Zombies, DGR, and Feminism

From Radical Beyond Pronouns: On Gender Zombies, DGR, and Feminism:

Ours is a sad era called patriarchy. Men have power over women. There’s no good reason for this; nothing natural about it.

Gender is a hierarchy, not a binary. Gender needs to be abolished, not reformed.

“Woman” is a political class. It’s made up of human beings who share the common condition of being exploited based on their biological sex and the common goal of liberation.

“Woman” is not a choice, but an imposed reality. Just like race and just like class.

Men who don’t feel like men don’t have the same experience of women who don’t feel like women. The former group is disavowing the spoils of their privilege, while the latter is seeking to escape their oppression.
