Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Schrodinger's feminist
« on: April 25, 2008, 02:57:41 pm »
Apparently, if you are a man, you cannot be a feminist.

Now, while normally I wouldn't find this tidbit of information any more interesting than any other tedious political infighting, it raises an interesting question.

What if someone, with a gender neutral username, were to start posting on the internet and posting feminist viewpoints, only later to be revealed to be a man?  Or what if they refused to answer any question on their gender at all?  Can someone simultaneously be a feminist and not a feminist?

I found this amusing, because it totally undermines essentialism in some schools of feminist thought.  Essentialism being "because you have not got a vagina and have not suffered discrimination due to your gender, you are not a feminist" (ignoring of course feminists who have sex changes, either way, as well).  Even if one were to fight ideas of patriarchy and be in favour of gender equality, one could not actually be a feminist, despite doing the exact same things all the women feminists do.

I think this illustrates that sometimes, making the divide between what someone is and what someone does, is essentially futile.  You are what you do, and when you try to divide those spheres apart and enter preconditions on identity which do not apply to the actions, then you create contraditions within your own philosophical viewpoint and worldview.

History suggests that in a crisis of this nature the rich become food :evil:

This is of course the upside.

Incidentally, has anyone heard much about the international food shortage?  Apparently the USA is hoarding rice, and China is spending greenbacks like there is no tomorrow to get hold of more....but that's just what I hear.

I'm saving all these Clinton WOMPs to release on the web once she loses.

I am currently planning something involving a lot of Clinton.

Does it also involve ninjas and large crowds?

I think I am more afraid of Mr. Suus sister then I am of him...

:|

WTF is that supposed to mean?

what do you think it meant?

im just some random moronic small headed military member who said he is afraid of a civillian.

Marine? Only Marines would retort with that because they're told to repeat everything they say like fucking parrots.


OMGZ RLY!?!?!

Oh, and I should alert you to the fact that I'm not a civilian. I love it when fellow servicefolk think they're hotshots.

I'd like to add that more than a few members here are either military or ex-military.

TGRR,
Not terribly impressed by the FNG who won't shut up about the service.

I'm not allowed to work with military people anymore.  They object to my presence at the meetings, and the fact I keep obliquely making fun of them.

Then again, I don't think MoD suits who once, a long time ago (like maybe in the British invasion of Tibet) once fired a gun.  For target practice.  Against an empty can.  When no-one else was looking.  Really count.  At all.

Hmm, OK.  It seems to work on Dilber, for me at least.

Note your browser specs and theme in this thread http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=16090.msg514367#new and hopefully 000 and Faust will be able to sort it out.

You know, I used to think the conspiracy nuts were crazy when they said the rich were going to let the poor quite literally die off due to conflation of economic and environmental crises and inherit a much less populated and cleaner earth for themselves,

Given the events of the past year, I'm starting to worry that perhaps I was too dimissive...

We already did that once.

Got our IPs wiped out in the process.  And they've banned 90% of proxies there. :(

Saul Williams - Act III, Scene 2 (Shakespeare)


This is a call out to all the youth in the ghettos, suburbs, villages, townships
To all the kids who download this song for free
By any means
To all the kids short on loot but high on dreams
All the kids watching TV like, "Yo, I wish that was me."
And all the kids pressing rewind on Let's Get Free
I hear you
To all the people within the sound of my voice

Spit for the hated, the reviled, the unrefined
The no ones, the nobodies, the last in line
Shakespeare
Spit for the hated, the reviled, the unrefined
The no ones, the nobodies, the last in line

I didn't vote for this state of affairs
My emotional state's got me prostrate, fearing my fears
In all reality I'm under prepared
'Cause I'm ready for war but not sure if I'm ready to care
And that's why I'm under prepared
'Cause I'm ready to fight
But most fights got me fighting back tears
'Cause the truth is really I'm scared
Not scared of the truth
But just scared of the length you'll go to fight it
I tried to hold my tongue, son
I tried to bite it
I'm not trying to start a riot or incite it
'Cause Brutus is an honorable man
It's just coincidence that oil men would wage war on an oil rich land
And this one goes out to my man
taking cover in the trenches with a gun in his hand
then gets home and no one flinches when he can't feed his fam
But Brutus is an honorable man

Spit for the hated, the reviled, the unrefined
The no ones, the nobodies, the last in line
Shakespeare
Spit for the hated, the reviled, the unrefined
The no ones, the nobodies, the last in line

If you have tears prepare to shed them now
For you share the guilt of blood spilt in accordance with the Dow Jones
Dow drops fresh crop skull and bones
A machete in the heady, Hutu, Tutsi, Leone
An Afghani in a shanty, doodle dandy yank on
An Iraqi in Gap khaki, Coca Coma come on
Be ye bishop or pawn
In the streets or the lawn
You should know that these example could go on and on and
What since does it make to keep your ears to the street
As long as oils in the soil, truth is never concrete
So we dare to represent those with the barest of feet
'Cause the laws to which we're loyal keep the soil deplete
It's our job to not let history repeat

Spit for the hated, the reviled, the unrefined
The no ones, the nobodies, the last in line
Shakespeare
Spit for the hated, the reviled, the unrefined
The no ones, the nobodies, the last in line
Shakespeare
Spit for the hated, the reviled, the unrefined
The no ones, the nobodies, the last in line
Shakespeare
Spit for the hated, the reviled, the unrefined
The no ones, the nobodies, the last in line

So here's the plan
The ides of march are always at hand
And when the power hungry strike
They strike the poorest of man
And if you dare put up a fight
They'll come and fight for your land
And they'll call it liberation or salvation
A call to the youth
Your freedom ain't so free, it's just loose
But the power of your voice could redirect any truth
Shift and shape the world you want
And keep your fears in a noose
Let them dangle from a banner star spangled
I'm willing and able
To lift my dreams up out of their cradle
Nurse and nurture my ideals
'Til they're much more than a fable
I can be all I can be and do much more than I'm paid to
And I won't be a slave to
What authorities say do
My desire to live within a nation on fire
Where creative passions burn and raise the stakes ever higher
Where no person is addicted top some twisted supplier
Who promotes the sort of freedom sold to the highest buyer
We demand a truth naturally at one with the land
Not a plant that photosynthesizes bombs on demand
Or a search for any weapons we let fall from our hands
I got beats and a plan
I'mma do what I can
And what you do is question everything they say do
Every goal ideal or value they keep pushing on you
If they ask you to believe it question whether it's true
If they ask you to achieve, is it for them or for you?
You're the one they're asking to go carry a gun
Warfare ain't humanitarian
You're scaring me, son
Why not fight to feed the homeless, jobless, fight inflation?
Why not fight for our own healthcare and our education?
And instead, invest in that erasable lead
'Cause their twisted propaganda can't erase all the dead
And the pile of corpses pyramid on top of our heads
Or nevermind, said the shotgun to the head

I can't upload stuff, I don't own a computer.

Ah OK.

And thats kind of my point.  If it is true, and it can be proved to be true, then that is a lot more helpful than otherwise, where people can and will dismiss it.

Hunter, would you like an upload of the Encyclopedia of Cognitive Sciences?  Its a big ol' file (11.5 MB....about 1000 pages), but it may interest you.
