Men often react to women’s words - speaking and writing - as if they were acts of violence; sometimes men react to women’s words with violence. So we lower our voices. Women whisper, Women apologize. Women shut up. Women trivialize what we know. Women shrink. Women pull back. Most women have experienced enough dominance from men - control, violence, insult, contempt - that no threat seems empty

It [prostitution] is justified by tradition as in the frequently uttered nostrum that it is the ‘oldest profession’. Slavery is old too but seldom justified by its longevity. The feminist historian Gerda Lerner writes most usefully about the way in which brothel prostitution in the ancient Middle East originated in the enslavement of captives in warfare, as a way of tidily dealing with surplus women slaves (Lerner,1987).

Hating feminine performativity isn’t internalized misogyny. Misogyny is the hatred of females and femaleness. Femininity is a gender construct – it’s a collection of characteristics and traits that our society attaches certain stigmas too, specifically gendered stigmas that associates said attributes with being inherently for one sex. Hating the fact that patriarchy has always affiliated the least valued gendered characteristics with the least valued sex doesn’t mean that I hate actual females. By saying that hating femininity (a gender construct, a state of gender performativity) is the same as hating females (actual individuals, people of a particular sex) is to continue the patriarchal arrangement that those two things are synonymous with each other and interchangeable. That feminine equals female and female equals feminine.

Abortion is a false debate: the problem is male insemination. I am all for getting to the root of things: the sexual act. Abortion, parity…those are lesser evils.

We have a double standard, which is to say, a man can show how much he cares by being violent - see, he’s jealous, he cares - a woman shows how much she cares by how much she’s willing to be hurt; by how much she will take; how much she will endure.
