Yet Another Youtube Fundie

I have never been able to understand how these women think that getting on their soapboxes and trying to convert others with "logical" arguments is "feminine" in the sense they are trying to revert to.

:roll:

I only managed to watch about 30 seconds before I got mad and had to click off, so I don't know her full argument. I do agree to one thing but to completely different ends. I don't think the answer to sexist thought/ideas/institutions/social prescriptions etc. is to say that men and women are equal and therefore the same because it's simply not true. Yes, I think we ought to be treated exactly the same in areas where sex difference doesn't matter such as equal pay or enfranchisement to use historical examples. But in terms of reproduction and reproductive rights it's obviously impossible to treat us the same. Moreover, we genderized so much differently than boys and men that we often have different opinions and outlooks or approaches to things and I hope, one of things third wave feminists will continue to do is to value different types of women's experiences and to consider more of them validly feminist.

The thing I hate about these fundies is that while they claim promoting difference is not promoting inequality, they in their next breath preach male headship and wifely submission. Logic fail.

This has been slightly OT but it got me riled up. I don't think the answer to multiculturalism is complete assimilation, but rather acknowledging and celebrating cultural differences whilst still being part of the same nation and sharing a lot of the same opinions and goals. I feel the same about feminism, we needn't chuck women all into the same mold and presume we all have the same opinion. Yes, we have common goals but we might not all agree on how to achieve them and that's the beauty of it. As far as I'm concern there's room for every woman who demands to be considered a person.

/rant ends here.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
