Ever since Lynna and I have decided to no longer be anti trans and actually bring a positive light while maintaining a healthy educational platform, we have then felt the wrath from the Radical Feminism cult. I have been told that Rad Fems are not about hate, separation and war against men, so please help me understand these quotes:
“All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman.”
— Catharine MacKinnon, Marxist, professor of law at the University of Michigan
“All men are rapists and that’s all they are”
— Marilyn French,The Women’s Room (Percent of reported rape or near-rape incidents = .07% [FBI Uniform Crime Report list for 1996])
“Marriage as an institution developed from rape as a practice.”
— Andrea Dworkin, feminist author, lesbian activist, former prostitute
“Heterosexual intercourse is the pure, formalized expression of contempt for women’s bodies.”
— Andrea Dworkin
“Under patriarchy, every woman’s son is her potential betrayer and also the inevitable rapist or exploiter of another woman,”
— Andrea Dworkin, Liberty, p.58
“Sex and murder are fused in the male consciousness, so that the one without the imminent possibility of the other is unthinkable and impossible.”
— Andrea Dworkin, Letters from a War Zone
“When a woman reaches orgasm with a man she is only collaborating with the patriarchal system, eroticizing her own oppression…”
— Sheila Jeffreys, lesbian activist, professor of political science at the University of Melbourne, Australia
“It is not only men convicted of rape who believe that the only thing they did that was different from what men do all the time is get caught.”
— Catharine A. MacKinnon, Toward a Feminist Theory of the State, 1989, First Harvard University Press (a legal treatise comparing feminism with socialism and communism)

I personally am appalled by these words, and frankly ashamed. Thankfully I know that my being a woman is not tied to feminism in any way, in fact I want nothing to do with it. I love men, I love women, I love trans individuals, gays and lesbians. I believe that ideology is destructive in all of its forms and needs to be eradicated like the cancer that it is. Men and women both have faults and virtues, no sex is better or more worthy than the other. They both need to learn to co exist and deal with the age long hurt that has been passed from generation to generation. So please help me explain what does all this fighting solve?
In addition, I want to appeal to your human nature, those of you who are anti trans, who feel that biology is all that matters, think about this for one moment: genitals in a fetus is undifferentiated, meaning we have the possibility of being either or depending on the hormonal bathing.
There are various combinations and events that can go wrong during development, also let us not forget the spirit and personality of this child and person, that is more than just a penis or a vagina, a womb or sac. People are more than their chromosomes and DNA, they are humans with feelings, needs and intrinsic behaviors and personalities.
Why should we deny them their reality and happiness? Why must you build your political campaign around someone else’s life and needs. Rise up from your judgment and personal opinion and try to be tolerant and accept that not everything in life is black or white, there are many shades of grey.
