So I just read this article: http://www.lawsonry.com/2011/891.html
I really like a lot of it, especially the parts about conversation and voice. I think it could apply very well to other forms of oppression as well, rather than just misogyny and sexism.
At the same time, I found parts of it a little bit divisive. I don't think conversation about feminism should be reduced to a question of personal authenticity (are you a real feminist or not? are you a "good feminist" or a "bad feminist"?) because that then makes sexism out to be a personal pathology rather than a social system of oppression. All of the behaviors described come from the ways that our patriarchal society socializes us. That's obvs. not an excuse for covertly misogynistic behavior, but I think that instead of trying to ID the real feminists and the fake ones, we should turn the conversation to behaviors (which, granted, the article mostly does).
What do you all think?
