the problem. (men).
the solution. (nature).
to continue with my thoughts generated by the previous post and comments, i would like to address womens intuition for a moment. as the context remains “radical feminism is gaslighting bullshit” again, sonia johnson once wrote that she thought most women refused to engage in reformist politicking because on whatever level, they knew it wouldnt work. to that, i would add this.
it seems to me that many if not all women feel, on an intuitive level, that everything will work out in the end. this is what religion is, what mysticism is, what hope (including hope for men) is (isnt it?) — women trying to justify or explain their feeling that it will be alright, that things will work out, that its not too late. i cannot think of a single thing any woman has ever done or said that is not consistent with a personal, spiritual, political, or religious belief that things will work out in the end, even if it means there is another life after this one, or that men will magically come around (or respond to our pleas) and stop killing, raping and torturing us because of our sex.
for most women, they do not even believe that they themselves need to act for things to work out in the end — these women are known as normal women, or nonfeminists. some 99% of the worlds women by any estimate, as most women flatly reject feminism on its face. there is perhaps 1% or some other very small percentage of women globally (feminists, including radical feminists) who think that they themselves need to act in order for things to work out in the end, but so long as they act — and activate — towards that end, yes, things will work out. men will stop killing us and everything, in the end.
there is of course another group of women, which i did not even realize existed until recently, and those are women who believe that men have already caused irreversible and exponential, soon to be explosive global climate change that will annihilate all human life, and that this will happen soon. in their own way, these women believe it will work out too — that nature will take care of it. most of those women, like all the worlds women, are not feminists either, so there is no feminist analysis there, just the evidence-based belief that things cannot continue the way they are and therefore, they will not continue the way they are. men have done us all in (unfortunately, they say “humans” and “civilization” did this, but as i said, they are not feminists). these women also do not believe we need to act in order for this to happen — its a done deal.
anyway, it seems to me that all women, in their own way, or in one way or another, feel or believe that things will drastically change, and that it will all work out in the end. interestingly, the evidence of global climate change and self-reinforcing feedback loops created by male “civilization” supports the conclusion that nature will indeed take care of the maleness problem (as if there was ever any reasonable doubt that natural law would prevail. there wasnt). and if it is the case that nature bats last (it is), it means that all the worlds women who have thought and felt for decades or centuries that “it will all work out in the end — and we neednt do a damn thing to make it happen” were absolutely, and demonstrably, correct. meaning, womens intuition was correct, including womens almost universal intuition that feminism wont work, and that men will never voluntarily stop ever.
it also means that the only of the entire worlds women who were partially wrong about any of this were the 1% or whatever tiny number who were and are the feminists, including radical feminists, who believe/d that women had to DO something/anything in order for things to work out, and for the problem of maleness to be solved. obviously, they were wrong about that. they were wrong, and i was wrong.
but women, on the whole, were right and are right. it will all work out in the end, oh yes it will. it wont be what any of us had hoped (prayed) for, since natural solutions are notoriously ugly, and painful (like plague). but i think this explains to my satisfaction what i and many women who came before have noticed: that it is almost impossible to get women on board with feminism, or to get them to “act” or activate towards a feminist ends. its because women know better. like sonia johnson, i trust women, and i now believe they were 100% right to think and act as if it would all “work out” in the end, without our help. of course it will. in fact, at this point…we couldnt stop it.
