I need feminism because tumblr - Page 99

post #1471 of 5582
Anonymous asked: what is the radfem response to dealing with intersex babies, my partner is starting her specialist training in paediatrics and we were discussing the ethics of gender assignment at a young age, I was surprised at the proportion of babies this effects.

Wait until they’re old enough to decide for themselves, or best case scenario: if there was no need to categorize people in specific gender boxes, intersex individuals wouldn’t even need medical intervention in most cases. It would just be like, there’s individuals with xx, xy, xxxy, etc. chromosomes, there’s individuals with a dick or a vulva or neither or inbetween. The only reason there’s medical intervention at all is because the patriarchy has such an intense need to categorize people into two sexes, because otherwise nobody knows who to oppress and who not to oppress - and this is also why it’s still important to not pretend like your biological sex doesn’t have consequences in the form of vulva = oppression, and penis = ruling class (I’ll no doubt get a question about it so I might as well just say it now).

If she has allowed her eyebrows to join her hairline, one can only imagine what lies beneath.

She seems like a "two face" from Seinfeld. I cannot make up my mind but it would be predicated upon her being unable to speak.

Quote:
A trainee barrister has been jailed after being found guilty of falsely accusing her former boyfriend of a series of rapes and assaults.

Sentencing Rhiannon Brooker, 30, to three and half years, the judge Julian Lambert said she had acted in an "utterly wicked" way and argued that false claims made it more difficult for real rape victims to be believed in court.

There was anger from women's rights campaigners who claimed that such severe sentences would put off rape victims from going to the police for fear they could face prosecution if allegations were not proven.

Brooker's former partner Paul Fensome, a railway signalman, was held behind bars for 37 days after she accused him of a string of rapes and assaults. While in custody, Fensome was held in a secure wing after rumours went around that he was a paedophile.

snip

The support and campaign group Women Against Rape (WAR) was among more than a dozen organisations and lawyers who wrote to the judge arguing that a harsh sentence would put women off coming forward to report rapes for fear they would not be believed.

They wrote: "The prosecution was not in the public interest. A prison sentence will put even more women off reporting, enabling even more attacks from violent men. The resources spent on prosecuting Ms Brooker should have been put into prosecuting rapists and other violent men."

This is very true because she shouldn't have brought false charges in the first place.

As much says, it is getting harder and harder to tell what is satire anymore.
