Ashton Deroy writes: “Feminism is about self-empowerment.” Says every capitalist Liberal/Libertarian feminist ever. It is wrong, it is an error in judgement that doesn’t fix the problem. Why isn’t feminism about teaching cooperative relationships both professionally and intimately? Why doesn’t feminism care more about the mental health crisis of loneliness? The answer is it does.
We just have to step away from the Capitalist mass produced feminism. The kind that allows Corporate brand Liberalism which you see in Belleville Ontario for corporations to be able to fire a woman for taking care of her father/family. The kind of feminism that serves a purpose only as a placeholder for regression and losing the rights women of the past fought so hard for. Feminism has to include democratic collectivism, unified theory and the ability to condemn Businesses & people who don’t follow the new order.
We can’t settle for Market feminism. It does not work! How can it be feminism if the women who want to participate can’t invite their boyfriends to join the revolutionary culture? It does not work. How can we allow for feminism without political purpose? It does not work. It defeats the idea entirely. We aren’t creating a system of equality. We are creating a Capitalist system that allows a woman to be oppressed the same as a man, which is not the point!
Feminism must be inclusive, egalitarian. It must fight for economic environmental justice. Anything else is not going to work. No one wants Hilary Clinton’s version of Liberal feminism anymore. We need something better! We need something that shakes the earth beneath us.
