i thought this was interesting, particularly relating to “making their own mistakes.” i dont know what naomi wolf thinks the second wavers did wrong (i hope its not what everyone *else* thinks they did wrong) but i can see from here that the third wavers are fucking up, and badly, when it comes to transactivism and sex-pos. i mean really. they are going to feel so silly in about 30 years.
you know, if there even *is* a feminist movement left, after what they have done and continue to do to it with their essentialist, MRA doublespeak. but lets try to stay hopeful, hmm?
i also thought this was interesting. its painful, but strangely comforting to watch. because again, i think that documenting change is interesting, and inspires hope.
germaine greer has clearly changed over time, no? this old interview makes me cringe, every time i watch it. the guy interviewing her is a fucking rapist, obviously. or at the very least, he very aptly (and naturally) demonstrates a rapists mentality: he is demonstrating absolute aggression and entitlement, as he attempts to dominate the discussion, and dominate *her*.
in this clip, this aggressive, entitled asswipe absolutely. completely. dominates her. and i dont mean to be critical of her: i mean to be critical of *him* because what he is doing is fucking disgusting, and absolutely typical. she may as well not even be there. does this sound familiar? it should. its the narrative of porn. its the very essence of *rape*.
this would have been a completely different interview, had he been interviewing her 30 years later. after she clearly gave up on men, and on doing battle with them, on their terms. this is difficult to watch, but follows nicely from the discussion being had over on the “more rad by the day” post. enjoy.
