Dead Wild Roses: Sadly, no. – Conversations between Radical Feminists and Transactivists.

Transactivist: Aint nothing radical about your “movement”…. you’re reactionary. You’re all bigoted and transmisogynistic. Step ya pussy game up. RF: ok RF: do u even know what “radical” means lol, it means “getting to the root”, as in getting to the root of women’s oppression which is male desire to control women’s reproductive capacity TA: ...

Dead Wild Roses: Pregnancy is not an Identity

Yet more evidence that identity politics is bad for women.    “Pregnant woman” is not an identity. It is a social reality. A pregnant woman’s ever-contracting rights – whether she can choose to end this pregnancy, whether she will risk imprisonment for drinking too much, whether she will lose her job, whether she will be ...

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: Equality Still Bunk After All These Years – Andrea Dworkin

“A commitment to sexual equality with men is a commitment to becoming the rich instead of the poor, the rapist instead of the raped, the murderer instead of the murdered.” –Andrea Dworkin Feminism is not for equality. Feminism is for female liberation.   “men don’t realize that they understand the point of women’s liberation, but ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Invisible Woman – Julian Vigo

Many thanks to RoughSeas for bringing this article to my attention, it is well written, chock full of facts, and enumerates many of the problematic aspects identity politics and how they are hurting women.     “Skimming over liberal media these past months, the assumption is that anyone who might have an issue with a transgender ...

Dead Wild Roses: When Identity Politics Trumps Reality; Women Lose – Females Kicked out of B.C. Okanagan Women’s Shelter.

   The politics of gender identity hurt women. And now sadly, I have to qualify what I mean when I write the word ‘woman’ because males, with subjective, indescribable feelings have decided that they are also women.  So, ‘women’ defined here and in reality refers to adult human females. Obvious female erasure aside, let’s move ...

Dead Wild Roses: Bollocks to the UN for its Inherent Terfy-ness!!

This whole trans induced irruption away from the world of fact always leaves shaking my head (alternative facts anyone?). This isn’t about hating a particular subset of people because they are a certain way, this is about disagreeing with the bullshit they spew and the demands they make. Case in point, the idea that somehow ...

Dead Wild Roses: The Dangers of Prostitution – Rachel Moran

“There was only one group of people who were ever responsible for endangering my life when I was in prostitution and they most certainly were not abolitionists; they were sex buying men. The same sex buying men whose dicks will never be sucked by the liberal feminists who defend and uphold the right of those ...

Dead Wild Roses: Gender Clarifications – A System Imposed on Us.

Sometimes terms get fuzzy or lose a bit when translated into arguments. Let’s take a look at the term ‘gender’. I have seen so many people argue that “gender is a social construct, that means you can label yourself as anything you want” and like that is not how social constructs work. In fact, social constructs ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Radical Feminist Quote of the Day – On Being Inclusive.

Women speaking out against the politics of individual identity and exposing the hypocrisy that lies at the base of much of the liberal objection to radical feminist class based politics. “i’m so tired of this liberal viewpoint that you have to include everyone at all times when talking about politics or else you’re excluding and ...

Dead Wild Roses: Why I’m Gender Critical…

Apart from the denial of biological fact, it is shit like this.   Men do not respect the boundaries set by women.  The attempts to shame Lesbians into straight sex is absolutely horrifying.  But this is allowed to fly because the authors of said tweets are exercising their male privilege watch them define words and meanings ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – Andrea Dworkin on Female Socialization – Our Blood

“Yes, I’d say female socialisation (since this whole thing mostly targets and hurts women anyway) that has taught us fear and what we can do to reduce that fear (apologise, silence ourselves and other women, submit, placate men at all costs).” Fear cements this system together. Fear is the adhesive that holds each part in ...

Dead Wild Roses: Fahrenheit 451 – The Trans Edition – Vancouver’s Women’s Library Under Attack.

Hey friends, let’s understand that if you decide to start banning books that are integral to the movement you want to be a part of, it is a really big hint that you need to be in your own fucking movement.  Colonizing Feminism for your particular set needs is going to fail therefore it is ...

Dead Wild Roses: Petition: Protect Feminist Books at Vancouver Women’s Library

A book-banning campaign by Gays Against Gentrification (GAG) is demanding the Vancouver Woman’s Library (VWL) remove and ban over twenty feminist books from their collection. These works — written by renowned women authors who have a long history of engaging in critical analysis against the oppression of women as class — focus on female exploitation, ...

Dead Wild Roses: Womyn’s March Highlights Toxicity of Identity Politics

The idea that feminism is the movement to liberate women from patriarchy (a notion lost to much of the befuddled third-wave) is finally beginning to (re)gain some traction as more women see what the unctuous morass of neo-liberal identity politics inflicts upon their mass movement. “It saddens me to see the inclusive liberal feminism I ...
