"Pornography Is a Civil Rights Issue"
So you will find in pornography women penetrating themselves with swords or daggers, and you will see the smile. You will see things that cannot be done to a human being and that are done to men only in political circumstances of torture, and you will see a woman forced to smile.
And this smile will be believed, and the injury to her as a human being, to her body and to her heart and to her soul, will not be believed.
This highlights a fundamental difference between radical feminism and liberal feminism.
Liberal feminism is more concerned with reaching some level of political and social equality between men and women within the current system.
Radical feminism doesn’t think this goes far enough, and critiques that being equal with men in a system that is built around notions of inequality is neither possible nor attractive. Radical feminists instead focus on seeking the root problem that causes structural and systematic oppression of women as a class and aim to recreate the very fabric of our societies, governments, institutions, economies, etc. in a way that allows for the full expression, inclusion, participation, and liberation of women. Not at the expense of men, but at the expense of age-old systems that are damaging to women as a class. Incidentally, radical feminists find the system damaging to men as well, for it forces polarity between the sexes, neither side being inclusive of the whole of human experience.
The US intervened and supported the dictatorships in Latin America. One of those dictatorships being the one that ruled my country from 1964 to 1985.
Now, if we consider Brazilian democracy as our “parade”, your country has rained on it for several years. Still does, by the way.
Me raining on your parade may be a bit annoying, but the US raining on Brazil’s parade has a body count.
