Dead Wild Roses: Radical Feminism – Defining Sex and Gender.

  One of the problems while debating misguided 3rd wavers, or gender/qu**r activists is that lack of definitional rigour when it comes to the terms ‘sex’ and ‘gender’.  What is chilling is that these activists often refuse to define their terms, yet as demonstrated here in Canada want these same terms enshrined into Canadian law.  ...

Dead Wild Roses: Why Defining Your Terms is Important – Sex and Gender

How weird is it that such basic concepts can cause so much furor?

Dead Wild Roses: Meghan Murphy – Defining the “F” word.

    Wow.  Meghan Murphy simply and clearly posits what Feminism is about.  Check out her blog here. “There are various ways the divide between “feminisms” is articulated: liberal vs radical, third wave vs second wave, sex-positive vs sex-negative, but none of those have ever seemed wholly accurate to me. (In particular, challenging male-centred or coercive ...

Dead Wild Roses: Gaslighting: Know it when you see it.

A big hearty frack you goes out to the mind games and other assorted BS that goes on society.  If you see it, acknowledge it and name it for what it is.  You won’t make friends, but life too short to hang around people who deviously manipulate other people.

Dead Wild Roses: Frumpy, Lesbian Man-Haters? – Defining Feminism

It is interesting to watch the mainstream media wrestle with feminism and the backlash from the perceived violations of cultural norms.    The Guardian blogged a piece called Why is ‘feminism’ such a tough badge to  wear?‘  Then the Blogsphere reacted and some thoughtful writing took place and was captured by Slendermeans and thus appeared ...

calgaryliberal.com: Rebranding: Not Interested in Scraps

The goal is government. I’m interested in a party that wants into government. Anything else is a waste of time. It’s a waste of time to just complain and oppose, along with it being fundamentally unnatural and strange. I want a value-based and focused support of ideas. Bottom feeding and walking by the edge of the major ...
