There exists a sub-section of men who literally cannot sit through a discussion of structural misogyny without receiving constant and emphatic reassurance that no one is accusing them personally of being a misogynist. This is a derail and an attempt to shut down debate. Because, to quote “Sometimes, it’s just a cigar”:

“Suppose you disagree with women about whether rape is part of the structure of our society, used to reinforce patriarchy. Do you make that debate possible by standing on your wounded pride, and just insisting that the debate must start with a disclaimer that says you’re not a rapist? Forgive me, but that’s nothing more than narcissism.”

The conviction that you have never participated or been complicit in structural misogyny is dubious to say the least, no matter what your gender. But even if you are resolute that you, personally, have managed to transcend the system you were born and raised in and now stand as a shining beacon of gender equity outside the mire of patriarchy? Good for you, but structural misogyny still exists and we still need to have a conversation about it. If you think you have nothing to learn, go play elsewhere on the internet.

  • Question: My crush is a beautiful person who lives in New Zealand and I live in Ohio. And I'll probably never see him again. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Tragic love! I want to hear about how you two met!

Quote

"i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that"

"In the meantime, here is my dream: it is rooted in the Torah’s teaching that all human beings are made in God’s image and are eminently worthy of dignity and respect. It is rooted in the central story of my tradition - the Exodus - in which God stands with the oppressed and demands that we do the same. And it is rooted in the Torah’s injunction that the land does not belong to us but to God, and that one law must be extended for all who dwell upon it."
