Man celebrates death of Women’s Studies Programs

I cannot express how much I like this blogger.
” In what way does “Gender Studies”/”Queer Theory” improve the lives of women? This is, after all, the discipline that has come to replace Women’s Studies, but how does it attempt to improve the lives of women? How is it anything more than a useless intellectual endeavor that makes delusional males feel better about themselves, and convinces females that their lived reality is utterly theoretical, that their lives, their bodies, their experience is just another text to be annotated, dissected, and redefined by males?”

TW: I was totes misgendered at a restaurant the other day, so this post is really long because I’m still not myself.

When I was a baby English Lit major in college, I really, really, really enjoyed engaging in Deconstructionist Theory. I used this genus of literary criticism on everyone from Bronte to Oates. I couldn’t get enough of the idea that “the word may mean one thing, but it could also mean another and another and another . . .” I was also stoned a lot in undergrad, and had far too many people telling me how smart I was.

So, basically, for my non-English major peeps, Deconstructionism is a way of creating or positing or illuminating a conflict between what a text “says” (literally) and what it “does” (based on pretty much any fucking thing you think it’s doing).  And then you take all those words and phrases…

Transgender activists unable to refute right-wing Minnesota Ads

In case anyone thinks that this blog is just about me whining about one abusive individual, please take note of this.
It very clearly illustrates why the personal is political. The Transgenderist (political) agenda seeks to erase the rights of females, and sweep away what small gains made on the part of women and girls over the last 40 years. Here is just one example of how that works. Women are entitled to feel angry about that. Women have every right to be angry about what is happening to them in the personal and political sphere – in fact, these are indivisible. From the abandonment by “Womens services” and the therapeutic communitt of women being abused by men in dresses, to the dismantling of women’s sports, to the inclusion of males in locker rooms and other, necessary spaces where women are safe from men and accorded some dignity. This is the result of catering to male delusions, wants and fantasies. Speak out, women. Speak out for women.
