All righty….out with Rush; in with Shelia Jeffreys.
For those who do not know her, Shelia happens to be one of the more extreme antiporn/antiprostitution radicalfeminists around.
Unlike Rush, she does not make $30 million a year from spewing her brand of hatred; nor does she have the size of microphone and bully pulpit that Limbaugh uses daily.
Nevertheless, Jeffreys does wield a mighty hammer in her quest to reveal her version of The Great Male Misogynist Conspiracy Against Women; fueled by male erections leveled at women for the sake of rape, abuse, and degradation, through the media of “pornography” and the acts of prostitution (what most other less condemning folk refer to as “sex work”.
And just like Rush, she’s been known to go over the cliff in smacking down her straw enemies. Men who don’t buy into basic self-hatred of themselves as innate rapists and oppressors of women are merely “pimps” and oppressors; women who don’t completely internalize her ideology of “feminist sexuality” and “militant moral feminism” are basically ripped as traitors, enablers of rapists, pimps and abusers, and even accused of being men…and, of course, if you so happen to be a sex worker who defends her profession or her right to be treated as a human being and respected for her decisions…well, you become a “cumdumpster”, a “bi-sexeee” slut/tramp who simply kneels at The Cock at the expense of ALL wome…or simply an agent of THE MAN.
Obviously, those who happen to be sex workers who don’t quite share Jeffreys view of them take a rather dim view of her ideology….and some of them make it pretty much public.
Which brings me to what happened with Hexy, an Austrailian sex worker advocate who caught a taste of the Jeffreys cult mentality (also known here as “the GenderBorg'”).
At her blog Hexpletive, Hexy posted about a recent meeting of Aussie sex worker advocates known as the National Forum (the actual organization is known as Whoreganisation), in particular the accessories that were sold at that meeting to express their particular defense of their work. In particular, Hexy posted on the brilliant idea of posting pro-sex worker sloagans on the bags used to promote the conference. Most of the sloagans were promoting sex workers as the ultimate safe sex messengers, to wit:
But it was this message that stood out so well, according to Hexy…and it was so popular with the conference viewers that Hexy had to Bogart a bag for herself:
The caption below reads: “anti-sex feminists do not speak on behalf of sex workers”.
To most folk, that would seem like merely a statement of disagreement, or a genuine show of dissent.
The GenderBorg, though, isn’t most folk….and they are especially sensitive to the belief that anyone would have the gall to disagree with their ideology…and they reacted accordingly.
One such antiprostitution activist, Allecto, decided to mount a defense of Shelia Jeffreys as the only true feminist willing to speak “the truth” about “the sex industry” as the ultimate abuse and rape of women…right down to making an alternative logo in protest to Hexy’s:
Notice how the logo is a hell of a lot bigger than Hexy’s….the better to catch the message. No need for translation here.
And the message went instantly viral…Witchy-Woo, Jennifer Drew, and Maggie Hays quickly posted up messages of solidarity with Jeffreys, along with similar messages smacking Hexy for “silencing” and slandering Shelia for her apostasy of opposing sex work and defending “prostituted women”.
Drew’s method of defending Jeffreys as a victim of slander and censorship (if not physical attack) is telling for its typicalness in how the GenderBorg respond to even mild criticism (posted by Hexy in her rebuttal to all this):
Nothing new about demonising yet another radical feminist simply because she dares to speak the truth and challenge pseudo feminists and the sex industry. For centuries women who have dared to speak the truth and challenge male supremacy have been demonised.
Remember the witch hunts – because this too was all about men and their supporters using claims that certain women and girls were witches in order to steal their few possessions, property or simply just to silence them.
Another point of view would be that because Sheila Jeffreys is widely respected – yes widely respected not disrespected – this threatens male supremacists and their followers.
Sheila Jeffreys has experienced these attacks before as did Kate Millett and not of course not forgetting the late Andrea Dworkin. Catherine MacKinnon too has been subjected to virulent women-hating attacks, but male supremacists and their supporters were not able to silence them. Additionally, there are many, many radical feminists who are routinely subjected to vicious misogynistic attacks and the reason is always because women who dare to speak the truth threaten male supremacists.
Which is why there continues to be a war on women and sustained attempts to silence our voices. Control is never 100% total because the oppressed can never be totally silenced, as soon as one voice is silenced another one appears. So the war continues.
Yup…because women who make a statement of disagreement with The True Radical Feminist who represents ALL women against the Fear Of An Angry Male Cock threat of male violence and oppression are merely the tool of male rapists and misogynists who want to hide the truth that Shelia Jeffreys is saying. Oh…and she’s the victim of a “witch hunt” because she happens to be a “radical feminist”.
Sounds familiar, folks?? Kinda like….Erick Erickson of RedState.com defending Boss Limbaugh as Peter serving Jesus??
In fact, let’s do an experiment here….allow me to slightly alter that previous rant by Jennifer Drew as if that was Erickson defending Jabba the Fat-Ass, changing a few words here and there.
Nothing new about demonising yet another radical feminist activist conservative simply because she he dares to speak the truth and challenge pseudo feminists RINO’s and the sex industry Angry Democrat Left. For centuries women conservatives who have dared to speak the truth and challenge male supremacy the politically correct Left have been demonised.
Remember the witch hunts the lynching of Clarence Thomas and Miguel Estrada and Janet Rogers Brown – because this too was all about men the Left and their supporters using claims that certain women and girls conservatives were witches racist bigots in order to steal their few possessions, property or simply just to silence them.
Another point of view would be that because Sheila Jeffreys Rush Limbaugh is widely respected – yes widely respected not disrespected – this threatens male supremacists RINO’s and the Obamabots and their followers.
Sheila Jeffreys Rush Limbaugh has experienced these attacks before as did Kate Millett Dick Cheney and Michael Savage…and not of course not forgetting the late Andrea Dworkin Paul Weyrich. Catherine MacKinnon Michelle Bachmann, Ann Coulter, and Sarah Palin too has been subjected to virulent leftist women-hating attacks, but male supremacists Democrat Socialists/Communists and their supporters were not able to silence them. Additionally, there are many, many radical feminists pro-American conservative patriots who are routinely subjected to vicious misogynistic and racist attacks and the reason is always because women patriots who dare to speak the truth threaten male supremacists of the Left.
Which is why there continues to be a war on women America and Western Civilization and sustained attempts to silence our voices. Control is never 100% total because the oppressed can never be totally silenced, as soon as one voice is silenced another one appears. So the war continues.
So, once again…please tell me what diference there is between the GenderBorg and the Beck/Limbaugh/RedState Right?? Especially since, besides from some syntactical differences, they share a common enemy and a common reactionary viewpoint about sex??
I eagerly await the response from the GenderBorg this time….like I give a care anymore.
