People with a Beard and a Penis? Sure, They Can be Women Too. We are all Women By Mrs Vera West
It is really a delightful turn of events, for feminism itself is on a theoretical, heretical level, that is spilling out into the public domain, as all these insane academic debates do, is being deconstructed. The basics of feminism 101, is a conspiracy theory, of male domination, based upon, well, it can’t be biology, so feminists are vague about how it happens, but it does. Men eternally oppress them. Thus, women are the ultimate victims, and some feminists even define a “woman” based upon such victim qualities. Yet feminism has also now embraced postmodern relativism, that see reality as a social construction. Thus, the concept of womanhood is a social construction, and from a relativist position lacks objective reality. Hence a man who identifies as a woman, and has a beard, and a functional penis, is a woman. Even Hillary Clinton had a bit of trouble with that one:
“Hillary, 71, and Chelsea, 39, sat down with a British reporter over the weekend, and the differences in their worldviews were on display. In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the pair if a person with a beard and a penis can be a “woman.” Chelsea quickly answered “yes,” but Hillary looked “uneasy,” the Daily Mail reports. “Errr. I’m just learning about this,” Hillary said. “It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.” In her piece, Aitkenhead tells Hillary that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation “have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.'”
It is all so confusing, being politically correct gets more complex day in, day out, so can anyone blame poor old batty Hillary that she is behind the times on the social construction of gender? There are more varieties of gender, than some stores have ice-cream.
