Do you ever wonder why there are virtually no women on this list? or why it is known as Marxmale? I would have thought that indignation over the rape of a child would not be debatable. Racist attacks, rape, police brutality....these are merely academic discussion for many on this list.
There have been a number of comments and discussions on this board that have offended me as a woman, that would have offended any number of women i have known in the movement.
If you imagine that you will have any relevancy in any coming upsurge while you cling to the idea that a group of men can be oblivious to to the experiences of at least half the population, you are sadly deluded.
>We need to keep these kinds of charges to an
Pat: i.e. "stifle, Edith, stifle"
I still think that insensitivity to sexual assault is pervasive and is a
factor in many of the reactions on this list.
amen, brother. amen.
