love, me. <3
we talked previously about the idea of separatism-by-default — if there are logistical problems getting in the way of women separating from men in a direct, forthright way, there are other ways of getting there that are worth exploring. this isnt an “ends justifying the means” kind of post, no. this is a “take a deep breath” kind of post. this is a lets reconsider.
what kind of rapey shithole are we living in, afterall, if we would have separatism by default if men were (finally) punished with jailtime for raping and contributing to men raping women. i mean if all men who were guilty of the range of offenses between actual rape and not adequately protecting women in their own communities and proximities from rape, were actually sent to jail, including every man within a 20-mile radius (say) of any and all instances of a boy or a man raping a girl or a woman, within just a few minutes there would be no men left in many places in the world. justice for women, in other words, would create female separatism by default, where all male offenders were separated from us, and allowed to do their male-culture thing with each other and not allowed to do it to us anymore. we would be alone. because justice.
what kind of porny nightmare is this, where if any of us were able to divorce ourselves from a woman-hating perspective, say by refusing to engage with patriarchal media images anymore, by default, we would be left in a female-only space. no men and nothing any man ever thought, dreamed or created would be there. because no.
and what kind of violent hell is waiting just beyond the horizon, what is it, exactly, that we are actively preventing from happening with our female blood, sweat and tears, when women put their energies into placing and enforcing social controls on men and male behavior, including mens violence against other men? and, why do we bother doing this at all? this is a serious question.
(re)consider: how many men would just kill themselves voluntarily if left to their own devices? how many resources in the form of suicide hotlines, drug rehabs, DWI checkpoints and the like are being actively put towards preventing men from killing themselves, and is this really the best use of these resources? says who?
(re)consider: how many men would kill each other if they werent prevented from doing so, both actively and passively, and how much energy is dedicated to achieving that ends daily? weekly? annually? is it worth it? this is a serious question. what would happen if we just let men do to themselves and each other what they do, unabated? im not talking about *us* doing a fucking thing to hurt men at all. im just talking about not stopping them from harming — even eliminating — themselves. do we owe it to them or something to save them from themselves? really? because we are acting as if we do, but why? i dont think women owe men a fucking thing.
and sure, women have our own interests in preventing male violence against other men, but our interests here are complicated, and worth parsing. for starters, women and girls often get caught in mens crossfire, literally and more literally. when boys and men are killed, so is the gynergy of the mothers, grandmothers and others who spent their lives and their very selves in raising and nurturing them.
perhaps our greatest fear is that if men are allowed to do what they do, and if “culture” — otherwise known as patriarchy — were allowed to be as hellishly brutal, as bloody and awful as it would be if men were allowed to just be men, unmodified, that men will simply and finally go mad, unleashing an heretofore unimaginably lawless, vicious violence, raping and slaughtering us all. and this is a realistic fear, i think. but obviously it begs the question, doesnt it — why are they worth saving, again?
what if we just got out of their way and let nature (or whatever) take its course? im just asking. we likely wouldnt have to do it for very long — i think even *i* could stand the trials and tribulations of “womens land” and passing the communal nut butter (or whatever) for the five minutes (or 5 years) it would take for men to render themselves, well, dead. after that, we could all go our own ways if we wanted. or not! either way, aaaahhhhhhh. heaven.
