Feminist dating

26 Feb

When it comes to dating, I don’t care about any of that. I used to think dating across the political aisle was not only possible, but practical.Hell, if James Carville and Mary Matalin can get along, I can date someone who thinks my genitals automatically give me privileges that they don’t have, right? People who are more loyal to their gender and not their significant other don’t make good partners.The politics of patriarchy have suppressed women’s voices and dominated social discourse and social action to the benefit of men and detriment of women.

There’s the question of whether or not to take your partner’s last name in marriage, how to deal with your mom slut-shaming your younger sister, and how to navigate sexuality while living in a sex-negative, sexist, homophobic, cisnormative culture.

And there’s this myth that says that feminism is the opposite of this – that women are supposed to be in charge, that the feminine is hailed as “better” – but that’s not true either. Feminism is about people of all genders being able to do the same things that straight, cis-men can do – without facing social consequences for doing so.

In a feminist relationship, the roles and dynamics should be up to you and your partner. What he’s doing is natural, what she’s doing is dirty.

No doubt, there are men who should be buried underneath the prison.

There’s plenty of examples of how the justice system has failed victims. The Father’s Rights Movement reports that only 14 percent of custodial parents are fathers.
