Chapter Two: Heterosexuality/Selling Out Is Not Compulsory

Women have far more power than they take responsibility for, and that power keeps patriarchy going. Men could not do it on their own. (And no, het women are not sacrificing themselves, as some het feminists’ fantasize in order to explain their own collaboration. Het women literally could bring down patriarchy now.)

  1. “Het women literally could bring down patriarchy now”

    That’s a truth that really pisses me off. It is sooooo possible to overthrow males. It would be relatively easy to do as a group. I suppose this is why there is such great effort put into isolating women. If you think you are alone, you probably aren’t going to fight the power (or anything really). Such a basic, basic psychological mechanism. Strength in numbers is a truth. If women knew they were not alone and could count on other women having their backs, all penis-havers would be imprisoned on farms and castrated like we supposedly fantasize about (I love the shit males *think* we think… very telling about how the male mind works…)

    I just don’t understand how a tit-squeeze of ‘appreciation’ from a male is more satisfying than forming sisterhood with another woman.
