There’s been much discussion on J’s website about the relationship of feminism to female-only spaces. That discussion digressed into a discussion of what it would be like to like in a matriarchy, and now it’s further digressed into petty complaints from women about various types of mistreatment that they attribute to sexism. Many of these complaints – not being taken seriously by your landlord, not being listened to – all happen to me too. Feminism is so important, it really frustrates me when the issues get clouded with all this victim-culture bullshit. People are often assholes – sometimes being a woman is one of the reasons that people pull out of thin air when they decide they want to be mean to you.
