I have a bit of a hangover this morning/now afternoon. Jess called me in emotional distress yesterday, and my solution for almost any problem is to go drinking. Probably not the smartest thing to do in the middle of the week(especially since I have a presentation to do tonight), but I felt obliged to do so. So we went to eat sushi(I was having another craving for Japanese thanks to reading this) and then to the bars.
I'm not going to describe my night, but I had to put up something about this guy I talked to. A navy guy who said he was a writer that is going off to Iraq in a couple of days. I'm not sure how successful of a writer he is, but he told me about one of his theories on women in his new book. He said that all women are born with a disorder called 'vaginal brain clot'... yeah, I didn't know what to think when I heard that one. Basically the belief was that all women are born crazy. The guy tells me stories about how his exwife and exgirlfriend showed symptoms of this: taking him shoe shopping and crying over dead trees in the park, stuff like that.
Hearing this brought me to something I had been thinking about earlier that day. I had learned yesterday morning that the radical feminist Andrea Dworkin had recently passed away. No, I wasn't posting my own opinion by the quote I put up yesterday. I had done a paper about a year ago on Pornograohy and the First Amendment. Seeing Dworkin's name just reminded me of the torture of writing that thing. If you ever want to learn about just how insane feminism can get then that is a good area to start. Don't get me wrong, Dworkin was entertaining to read. I just don't understand the extent of her and other feminists' obsession. Humans show thier most irrational side of themselves through sex (list to show this). Those women against pornography obsess over the erradication of it by studying the darkest areas of human sexuality. Dworkin labeled pornography in general as a rape of women. If it was rape I'd understand why she had been so set on abolishing porn, but many go into that field without force. I just never saw the rape.
So why did 'vaginal brain clot' make me think of Dworkin? Okay, I'm not accusing anyone of that... I am a woman after all, and that would be retarded of me. I think it was just the association of all women to these few fucked up ones in his life. Kind of like associating feminism to the radicals that are around. I'm criticized if I say I am or am not a feminist. Either I'm not enough in support of women holding high carrer positions or I'm a man hater(which I have been accused of both). Well, I can say that I want a carrer and I don't hate men, so where does that leave me? I can tell you where, the hell away from feminist jurispudence theory.
Looking back at my post it seems that I've said that Dworkin was fucked up (my wording is horrible isn't it). I think the sick part of it all is the categorizing of women in such a manner. For instance, this guy at the bar putting all women as the same as his ex-wife and such. Hell, I've never forced a guy to go shopping with me... let alone shoe shopping. Crying over the trees? It sounds like his ex was a bit off. He did say that she left him for a wizard or a yoga instructor though...
Not the point.
So what is the point?
Nothing anymore, I'm rambling. So I end the post here.
