radfems are fawning all over gaynotqueer, a man, despite the fact that he is arrogant and patronizing. Just because he “doesn’t have a gender” doesn’t mean he doesn’t have male privilege. he needs to shut up when the women are talking and not be encouraged as the special snowflake man who “gets it”
I suppose this is somewhat aimed at me (along with others) as I am one of the people who agrees with a lot of what he says. I’ve not prioritised his opinions over those of radical feminists, and he has stated repeatedly that he is not a radical feminist. I am always wary of men who identify with feminist beliefs, but he has proven that he is not one who derails our topics to make them all about teh menz. I personally find him to be a good person and as a strong supporter of the LGB community, I do see that our priorities are aligned and he shares many of my opinions. I don’t wish to speak for anyone, but I don’t think it’s apt to speak condescendingly (“fawning”) to radical feminists, who are full grown women capable of making their own choices in terms of their support (although this has been discussed earlier, about how GNQ receives a lot more compliments and agreeance than radical feminists because he is a male, and he had a very good response to that, basically agreeing with the double standard).
I respect your views and a lot of your posts, but I do not agree with this one. I personally spend far more time reblogging posts by bugbrennan, roseverbena, killyourenemies, indigenousfeminist, radicalandskeptical, drunkorexhausted and several others, who are all women, but that does not bar me from agreeing with gaynotqueer.
