“Wavelengths of spectacular beauty...”
For all the wonderful progress humans make, we sure are tied to some out of date practices and attitudes. I’m finding it difficult to move too far away from the whole sexual abuse thing. What’s being identified is only a small piece of the overall problem, and is this just another hand swipe at making change, or is this time different.
“There’s no progress without change...not all change represents progress”
Cultural shaming is part of the support for why progress is failing the modern feminist in their plight against the established sexism. Speaking out gets your dignity ridiculed in public fashion, and then the onslaught of knitpicking at what remains of your character follows. The possibility of losing that debate drives women away from standing their ground, and facing the pig bastards, that assumed their advances were legitimate somehow. Damned if you don’t, fucked against your desires, if you do.
The system has held this dynamic at bay for most of my life. It’s absolutely not about delineation, but about opportunities. If you push any group toward any agenda, there’s naturally a certain percentage that adhere to that agenda. Women have been made to believe, their purpose was dictated by their husbands. How fucking preposterous is that!!!
