Whose Voices Get Spoken Here? A Radical Profeminist Stance
[I found the above image here.]
Do to some extremely helpful feedback from several radical feminists on and off-line, I am clarifying and changing some practices and policies here at A.R.P.
1, 9 NOVEMBER 2009 ECD UPDATE: ONLY COMMENTS POSTED BY THOSE WHO HAVE REGISTERED WILL BE ALLOWED. NO MORE COMMENTS POSTED BY ANYONE "ANONYMOUSLY" WILL BE ALLOWED OR ACCEPTED.
2. No known anti-Feminist/anti-Womanist activists and/or bloggers will have an opportunity to speak (have comments posted) here, from now on. No comments that are critical of radical feminists and Womanists will be posted here. If a woman has issue with something a radical feminist or womanist here says, they can take it up with them, elsewhere. Not here.
3. No known Men's Rights Activist's comments will be posted here.
4. No comments by known apologists or activists for the racist sexxxism industry will be posted here. This does not include those who are struggling to survive it or get out of it. In other words, any woman's voice that supports women's freedom from male supremacist sexual exploitation and oppression, is welcome here.
5. No known committers of sex crimes, including makers of pornography--legally or illegally, will be allowed to participate at this blog.
The blog, A Radical Profeminist is intended to be feminist-friendly space, pro-Womanist space, and space that is generally safe and welcoming for women (and men, and trans folks, and those of us who are intersex) to critique patriarchy, white supremacy, colonialism, anti-Indigenism, pro-ecocidal policies and practices, Western civilisation, heterosexism, and white and/or male supremacists, including those of us who call ourselves "feminist" and "profeminist" by name but not through practices fully accountable to Womanists and Feminists who support radical social transformation, including the vision of an end to patriarchy and white supremacy.
