Dead Wild Roses: The Unpersonhood of Women to be Confirmed in Brazil – Full Abortion Ban Incoming

   I hate the rank smell of religious zealotry, so self-righteous, so sure, so confident that the grand ooga-booga has ordained that the status of women in Brazil needs to be taken down a score of notches. As reported by the CBC: “A congressional committee led by evangelical Christians has voted to ban abortion in ...

Dead Wild Roses: Illuminating Radical Feminist Conversations

Gender is a deliberate, carefully constructed edifice of patriarchy that is designed for one purpose. The oppression of females. Playing around with or in the more edgy nomenclature ‘subversion’ of gender roles – “I’m a non-binary, pansexual-genderqueer-demi-gurl” [wtf?] – is nothing more than a horizontal shuffle of the gender deck. The hierarchy is not disturbed ...

Dead Wild Roses: When A Voice Tells You You’ll Never Be Enough – Mattea Kramer

   Welcome to the particular mental hell that many women inhabit.  In an insightful article on Tom’s Dispatch by Mattea Kramer we see how the negativity toward women in society internalizes itself and become women’s own inner self-critical voice.   “Girls observe and absorb such double standards, as well as the criticism they receive for ...

Dead Wild Roses: A Small Step – Feminist Icon Wonder Woman

Dead Wild Roses: Watch – The Normalization of Male Violence in ‘Civilized’ Society

http://tehbewilderness.tumblr.com/post/162144889809/mypowerourpower-yayfeminism-screencaps-from Articles like this highlight the systemic, societal based normative attitudes that we are bathed in.  Male violence is looked on in a sympathetic light and the narratives spun around them serve as a justification for their actions.

Dead Wild Roses: Radical Feminism – Female Liberation

   This is what radical feminists mean when we say that feminism isn’t about equality, but is about the liberation of female people from male people. We don’t want to be as violent as men are. Such a simple concept, yet so many seem not able to grasp the idea.  Equality in itself isn’t a ...

Dead Wild Roses: Responses to Street Harassment – Informal, yet still Infuriating Poll

I know which minor superpower I’d like to have, I’d like the ability to switch minds of other people, or increase the amount of empathy others feel toward each other.  So much of the problem (other than the dudely shit-stains that actually harass women) is that people just can’t relate or believe women when they ...

Dead Wild Roses: J.K. Rowling Isn’t Taking any Liberal Male Crap Today.

If there has ever been a motif to this blog, it would be the sentiment that J.K. Rowling captures in her Twitter feed. The experience of society for females and males is distinctly different, and that difference is deleterious for the female half of the world. Men like to dance around the fact that they ...

Dead Wild Roses: Transactivism at it Finest – My Rules Only Apply to Others, Not Me!

Consider this conversation and then juxtaposition it with all the chatter one hears about ‘gender identity’ and ‘gender expression’.  Add to your lens the notion of male privilege and how it often plays out when it comes to respecting the boundaries of females. (not) Funny how that works. http://auntiewanda.tumblr.com/post/160517895825/cecaeliawitch-this-was-a-pretty-grand-moment-and   Filed under: Gender Issues, Radical ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Basis of Patriarchal Discrimination – Biological Sex

Dead Wild Roses: bell hooks on Benevolent Patriarchs.

“Bernie Sanders isn’t saying anything about feminist politics. He’s not integrating any kind of feminist politics into his vision. I think the important thing is that we see this as the continuum of patriarchal power reasserting itself, and not as though Trump invented it or makes it possible—because it has been there. It’s been there, ...

Dead Wild Roses: Reflections on the Woman’s March – Oh those Liberals.

I find it curious that when it comes to feminism as a movement it is often decreed that it must be “inclusive”.  Here is the thing though, feminism is the struggle for female liberation from the patriarchal structures and mandates of society.  The only requirement for membership in feminism is, hold on to your (pussy)-hats, ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Quote of the Day – For Her Own Good — Barbara Ehrenreich & Deirdre English

   Patriarchy at its finest. “In the second half of the century, these fumbling experiments with the female interior gave way to the more decisive technique of surgery—aimed increasingly at the control of female personality disorders.

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – On Patriarchy

“There absolutely is a shared experience universal to all women under patriarchy. No matter what culture or religion or location, we all grow up with the pervasive message that we were made for men.
