Dead Wild Roses: The Rights of Women

A quite comprehensive list. Female erasure is a serious problem in our society and we should move to ensure that the rights of Women are preserved. “Here is a list of the Human Rights of Women that so-called Transgender Rights are eliminating. No one is saying Trans folk should not have rights, but what IS ...

Dead Wild Roses: GlossWitch Goes to Town On Liberal Male ‘Feminists’

“There has been little acknowledgement of the way in which trans politics demands far more of women than it does of men, perhaps because this would require an acknowledgement of the fact that male/female remains as much, if not more, of a dominant axis of oppression as trans/cis. Why aren’t we claiming that “men” needs ...

Dead Wild Roses: Spot The Male Rights Activist – A Long Tumblr Conversation

This is a long post that starts with a woman discovering that the third wave liberal feminism (male pleasing) we have today is shit, and moving toward the tenets of radical feminism (female liberation from patriarchy).   Cue the dudes that react in horror to the truth ignis-divine-eleison is telling.  The grist of the post happens ...

Dead Wild Roses: How Gender Performativity is Victim Blaming

This quote starkly lays out exactly what is at stake when it comes to the politics of gender and those who follow its dictates. So no, feminism is not about being mean to the poor menz, it is fighting against the oppressive shit that hurts women.  Focusing on how the conception of gender is problematic ...

  The RPOJ comes for thee. It has been way to long since the last RPOJ post.  My apologies faithful readers. Today’s lovely winner is Anthony writing on his blog ‘How to be Happy’ – with the catchy tagline ‘Personal philosophy driven by experience and reason’.  My suggestion is to clarify his tagline a bit, ...

Dead Wild Roses: Biological Determinism – What Feminism Argues

Hmm.  Time to give some side eye to queer theory as it seems to go against much of what feminism is about.  Let’s examine a part of an essay by Susan Cox writing on the Feminist Current.      “Feminists defied patriarchal ideology by declaring that we do not have “wandering uteruses” that make us prone ...

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. Lying in wait with a shotgun under your family’s car and then dispatching your wife and daughter ...

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: Canadian Bill C-16 – Radical Feminist Analysis by Megan Murphy

Bill C-16 is problematic for women.  Go read the entirety of Megan Murphy’s article on the Feminist Current, I’ve excerpted a key bit here though. 🙂 Bill C-16 passed at the Senate on Thursday. Under this new Canadian legislation, which follows similar laws in a number of Western countries, a person can determine their gender ...

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: Canadian Bill C-16 Passed – The Rejection of Material Reality.

Canadian bill C-16 passed. “The bill updates the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code to include the terms “gender identity” and “gender expression.” The legislation also makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender identity or expression. It would also extend hate speech laws to include the two terms, and make ...

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: Gail Dines – Defining Feminism

Gail Dines is an amazing feminist.  She lectures worldwide and has written many an article as well as few really good books.  She sums up the slide toward liberal feminism in three meagre slides.   Let’s move away from the neo-liberal/libertarian ‘I’ve got mine, fuck you’ trend that has dominated much of recent popular feminist ...

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: The Violence of Trans-Activists

http://tehbewilderness.tumblr.com/post/160068494084/literal-violence   Yeah.  So trans community what is the plan to deal members who choose to behave like this?  I’m curious because this particular sub-set seems to be defining what trans-activism is all about and illustrating quite succinctly the threat it poses to women.   Filed under: Radical Feminism Tagged: male violence, Misogyny, Radical Feminism, ...

Dead Wild Roses: A Short Essay On the Term “Cis-Privilege” – From the Female Perspective.

“Every single time I hear a transactivist or MTT person call us ‘cis’ or ‘cis privileged’ as a woman I am going to assume that they think the following experiences of being a woman privilege us: The number one greatest industry in the world is the buying, selling and trafficking of women and girls for ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – Clementine Ford

“Before I became radicalised as a man-hating, separatist feminzai hell-bent on installing a matriarchy and imprisoning men as its slaves, I possessed a nominal amount of internalised misogyny. Women were bitchy and mean. They cared about irrelevant rubbish and talked in loud, shrill voices. Their laughter was annoying and tinny, and they did it performatively ...

Dead Wild Roses: Pronouns Aren’t Malicious – Gender Stereotypes, Different Story.

Auntie Wanda on the Pronoun Game. “Pronouns refer to visible sex and a man is referred to as a “he.”   Not everyone has to play your word games.” “Pronouns aren’t malicious, they’re neutral words that refer to female people and male people respectively. The knowledge that our species has two sexes isn’t malicious either.  I’ve ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Marginalization of Women within Childbirth Continues (If this seems like a contradiction, keep reading)

I could not hit reblog fast enough. Plus a wonderful quote from said article. Thank you giuliaalexis. “Recently, I got into a Facebook discussion about how gender is not neutral for women. At some point, I commented that patriarchy wouldn’t exist if men didn’t want to control the bodies of women for reproduction – and ...

Dead Wild Roses: Defining Radical Feminism – Inclusion, Patriarchy, Gender Identity

“I understand the desire to be inclusive. The feminist movement has historically not been super inclusive or intersectional, particularly for women of color and lesbian and bisexual women. I think the third wave has been doing a much better, albeit not perfect, job of being more intersectional.  However, radical feminism is about females. We acknowledge ...

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

The term ‘essentialist’ gets thrown out quite a bit as the tenets of radical feminism rub up against the new gender zeitgeist.  Let’s look at a common argument that genderists make while interacting with Radical Feminists.  – Genderist: For not wanting women reduced to their genitals, you seem to care a lot about what kinda ...

Dead Wild Roses: Objections to Trans-Activist Rhetoric, not the People

This exchange typifies many a conversation I’ve had during debates on gender and transactivism.  Critiquing and debating a position is not hate.  Many thanks to the radfemchronicals on tumblr for so eloquently stating her position and highlighting the difference between ‘hate’ and ‘criticism’.   grumpypiano asked: I keep seeing anti-trans posts on this blog. Do ...
