I have recently become an Anarchist Feminist and I have known that the are misogynistic creeps in all political spectrums, however I am still disgusted by the male anarchists that claiming that they are for the freedom of people, yet they disregard women’s issues and concerns as not important or the categorize feminism as “a manifestation of daily banality”. This is a sign of men feeling that their male privilege is gonna be destroyed by the evil women that want to take their porn away and actually want the same rights and freedoms as men! What an absurd concept! Women as people!?
In all seriousness, these men are not what I call for the freedom of all people, if they were for the freedom of all people, they would actually include women and acknowledge their concerns, and allow them to join side by side with them in the fight towards equality. These men are one of the reasons why most women stay away from men when it comes to fighting for equality. Men like Bob Black are a poor example of Anarchism itself and I sincerely wish that they were not Anarchists. You can not control a man’s behaviour or their political ideologies unfortunately, so being aware of these men and keeping them out of Anarchist conversation will let them know that we will not tolerate willing slaves to the patriarchy, especially ones that support a capitalist and patriarchal industry such as the sex industry or claim that feminism supports capitalism when in reality it’s just a bunch of men who feel entitled to the women they feel should fuck them, then get upset when the women say no to them. Their poor penises can’t handle it. These manarchists believe that if there is no government then they are now welcome to do as they please and that includes raping women without any consequences because they think that no government equals no ” puritanical morals” to suppress their hunger, both figuratively and literally. They will still enforce patriarchy which is what the state and government represent which is also what these manarchists are fighting against. These manarchist seem to forget that one of the main components of anarchism is freedom from sexism, women and men are both victims of sexism; these manarchists seem to forget this little fact completely and want to continue using misogyny to instill their male privilege over the women who are a part of the anarchist movement.
If we feminists and anarchists of all leftist political spectrums are aware of the misogyny that some of these men will try to perpetuate and try to portray it as fact then we call all agree that these men who claim that they for freedom but don’t practise what they preach are absolute liars and hypocrites. These manarchists and their oppressive idealology need to be acknowledged and held accountable and the manarchists need to know that their oppressive and contradictory ideas will not be tolerated by the anarchist community.
