I’m not entirely happy with what I wrote yesterday and not just because I never spell checked it.
I’m not happy with it because I feel that it’s perpuation of the divide. But, I am open to dicussion about the pros and cons of porn, prostitution, abortion, and feminist dress code.
Wendy McElory has a ton of interesting articles on Individual Feminism and feminism and pornography. I will spend much of day reading these articles. I skimmed them over and it’s a lot to digest. And I’m insanely tired after staying up much too late reading a great Loretta Chase novel, Mr. Impossible.
Perhaps my not wanting to divide women comes from my fear of rocking the boat. But I don’t think so.
I just can’t support illogical statements. Statements that threaten my personal freedom. Statements that I cannot assimilate into my beliefs.
I don’t want to be labeling men the doers as opressers of women anymore than I want to be labeled as having PMS every time I’m emotional.
I hate to be the one to say it, but: Equality cannot succeed with women power alone. (Just as buying more “green” isn’t going to save the environment). Men are roughly half the world and right now they hold the majority of the power.
Yes, I am struggling with my views today. I’d like to have a good old debate with someone on the other side about their views vs. mine. But few people seem to be pro-debate. It’s MY WAY or the highway seems to be the norm. And I’m not talking bullying, insults or the rest. A good old fashioned debate.
