why are identity politics for race and sexuality/sex treated differently by so many anarchists?

CRUD, I dont know where to start with you. I literally do not know where to start. Why is the fact a small number of women (a number that no doubt pales in comparison) lie about being raped such a central issue for you? .

It's not. The fact I was banned for stating that is what's silly. It's personal, I get it, just as I was "warred" not to "derail" threads (The Occupy Oakland thread) when I was focusing on how counterproductive the blac bloc tactics were. Tens of thousands of people there one day and the very next....a thousand? I wonder why? Trying to prevent future protests from suffering the same problem by talking shit about the smasshy smasshy is "derailing" threads.

Fuck, some of you even called me a liberal/reformist and pacifist for shit talking the 'blac bloc' vanguard in Oakland. So at this point if peoples opinion on this site set reality I'd be a pacifist/reformist, misogynistic, liberal.

I have no idea where to start what that. It's all getting old. smile
Am I a racist yet?

I also take rape seriously. What gives you the indication don't? I take murder seriously, I take racism seriously...You're going to have to explain yourself on that one. Anyone who says (out of personal experience) it's not wise to go assaulting men accused of rape doesn't take rape seriously...OK I get it???%$#@!

I can't get quite as indignant as other people about CRUD's posts. He's pushed his point further than is reasonable, yes, in a very insensitive way, but I can understand why his personal experience leads him to want to make the point he makes.

Having said that it would be admirable if he would recognise that the point isn't quite as crucial, in context, as he might feel.

It's not crucial. Being banned for saying it is why I'm here poking sticks at people.

Hey CRUD, howabout you just never talk about feminism? On that condition I will be glad to accept you back into the loving Libcom fold wink

wall forever

(oh, sorry, because I'm a feminist woman but I don't agree with a feminist man who clearly thinks labelling himself feminist absolves him of any responsibility to be self aware or reflect on his behaviour I must be a 'liberal' with 'hurt feelings' using 'identity politics'. Way to recreate patriarchal norms dude)

CRUD, your response to my post actually did not follow my paragraph you posted at all? I don't give a fuck why you were banned. Personally I think it looks bad when you look on libcom and you see some idiot posting on the relevance of Schopenhaur in relation to gender politics. But hey, shits and giggles, and didn't ban you so roll eyes

What gives me the indication you don't take rape seriously (as I said in my last post [that you quoted] but seem to have not taken heed of), is that your more concerned with the tiny women who may (tentatively) lie about being rape. And some how this is, like, your big fucking revelation. It is beyond my comprehension that this is the best you can do for someone that has professed to being a feminist! eek
