Let’s Kill It

30 Apr

You cannot live as the opposite sex. You can act out enforced gender scripting, you can allow the white male dominated medical establishment to fuck around with your body, you can lie to yourself, you can lie to everyone if that suits your particular psychosis.

But you cannot live as something you are not. This is magical thinking in the worst possible way, and I’m not talking about true power, true knacks. I’m talking about the crap mimicry of real power, the travesties created and sold as real power. Every time anyone does this it is the worst thing in the world, as it acts to destroy real female power and grind us under its heel.

I don’t generally use “it” to refer to anybody. I preferentially refer to life as female, as English is a gendered language.

But in this case, “it” works. This mindset is an “it.” It is not gendered, it is just using gender as an abusive tool to hurt people with, especially women.

It has no real life or caring to it. It is a death monster. It wants to eat us all up so it can finally die.

Let’s kill it.

    The damage to women is being looked at more closely now.

    But in my experience, the “it” is beating us men just as much. They want to be sure that we fight each other. And we stay mostly quiet, because it is beating us, and is working to make sure that other men and women keep us silent.

    I was abused, mostly by women. That’s my story. I’m sticking to it. I’m done going with the line “but it’s worse for women.” I am aware what the current statistics say. But like hell am I going to let my experience get marginalized just because I’m supposedly in a minority.

    So I disagree. I hope that doesn’t upset you. I’ll say goodbye if that’s the case.
