Patriarchy blaming, dudeliness, and you

Dude, could this be you?

How am I, as a “straight” man, who has never EVER been violent towards a woman (or a guy for that matter), supposed to “step up and take responsibility for ending male violence”?

Do you really think a “matriarchy” would be any better?

What is wrong with being attracted to hot women? Men are visually hardwired.

Educating men in the mysterious and rigorous discipline of viewing women as human beings is not, happily, the focus of this blog. However, male persons who wish to hone their patriarchy-blaming chops are encouraged to follow the links in this post, as well as to check out the suggestions below.

Male persons who wish to leave comments on this blog are strongly encouraged not to. Male persons who wish to leave comments, despite the preceding statement, affirm, by clicking the “Blame” button, the following:

— That they not only grasp radical feminist theory, but also do not question the existence of patriarchy, or the fact that they benefit from male privilege, or the validity of the argument for women’s liberation from male oppression.

— That enbiggening the discourse, rather than an ironic intellectual exercise, is the guiding principle of their commentary.

— That they are over 25.

— That they have read at minimum 17 books on feminist theory, including: The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer, The Second Sex by Simone DeBeauvoir (new translation), The Dialectic of Sex by Shulamith Firestone, Intercourse and Right-Wing Women by Andrea Dworkin, and How to Suppress Women’s Writing by Joanna Russ.

— That they have familiarized themselves with the culture of Savage Death Island by reading all the entries in the Dear God What About the Men category.

I’m not even kidding.

But really, it would be better if men just didn’t post in the first place. Really.
