sooo many male “feminists” shit on sex repulsed women and attempt to coerce us into having sex because like, the patriarchy is totally oppressive babe and really you shouldn’t let it stop you from embracing your sexuality sexy cuz like sex empowers women so much beautiful

Andrea Dworkin and other Second Wavers wrote extensively on how the “Sexual Revolution” had everything to do with males brainwashing women and girls into being eager fuck-holes for them, and ZERO to do with the sexual liberation of the female sex. You want to sexually liberate the female sex? Get rid of compulsory heterosexuality, lesbophobia, racist fetishes, porn, the Rape Culture, white-supremacy, colorism, human/sex-trafficking, gender-conformity, pedophilia/child abuse, capitalism, domestic battery, body shaming, phallocentricity and all the misogynistic propaganda that instills a false consciousness in the minds of women from birth, brainwashing them into believing their only “talent” and “value” dependent on them reducing themselves to hyper-feminized sex-objects for the porn/kink-warped, hetero Male Gaze. Women and girls are brought up with a POV that centers around the porn/kink-warped, hetero Male Gaze and hetero males’ fucked-in-the-head “desires”. We see our sexuality through their predatory eyes rather than ours.

"Here’s what white privilege sounds like: I am sitting in my University of Texas office, talking to a very bright and very conservative white student about affirmative action in college admissions, which he opposes and I support. The student says he wants a level playing field with no unearned advantages for anyone. I ask him whether he thinks that in the United States being white has advantages. Have either of us, I ask, ever benefited from being white in a world run mostly by white people? Yes, he concedes, there is something real and tangible we could call white privilege. So, if we live in a world of white privilege—unearned white privilege—how does that affect your notion of a level playing field? I ask. He paused for a moment and said, “That really doesn’t matter.” That statement, I suggested to him, reveals the ultimate white privilege: the privilege to acknowledge you have unearned privilege but ignore what it means."

Why is rape often called "non-consensual sex"?

I have for some time wondered why the phrase “non-consensual sex” is used as a stand-in for the word “rape”. At first, it struck me as aesthetically incorrect. Rape being phrased as a “type of sex” just seems wrong in some way. But how else can we give a definition of rape in a sentence or phrase? Thinking about it for a while, I realized the issue:

"Sex" has always referred to an act in which more than one person (usually two people) participates. Rape only requires one participant, the rapist. One would not say that an unconscious woman who was raped "participated" in her rape. A "sexual" act involving only one person, on the other hand, is called masturbationRape is a form of masturbation — to be “raped” is not to “have sex, but without consent”; it is to be used for masturbation.

This may seem like useless semantics, but does the reframing of rape as a masturbatory act not clarify its intent? The rapist does not see the victim as a human. The victim is a substitute for what the rapist would otherwise use to pleasure themselves.

Is Robert Jensen wrong about men critiquing feminist women?

Robert Jensen - “Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity”

"In the digital age, we are nearing the point where an idea banished by Twitter, Facebook and Google all but vanishes from public discourse entirely, and that is only going to become more true as those companies grow even further. Whatever else is true, the implications of having those companies make lists of permitted and prohibited ideas are far more significant than when ordinary private companies do the same thing."
