Jens Jessen (Die Zeit) gibt den Klassenkämpfer, indem er #Wagenknecht antikapitalistische Motive unterstellt. #LGBT #Gender etc. - alles Talmi. Sein bourgeoiser Vulgärmarxismus unterschlägt, dass #Rassismus, #Patriarchat, #Kolonialismus, #Ableismus aufs engste mit der Zurichtung kapitalistischer Marktsubjekte verschränkt sind, also antikapitalistisch konvergieren. Beiden geht es um die Ruhigstellung Lohnabhängiger in der Volksgemeinschaft, aber bestimmt nicht um soziale #Revolution.


Testausschnitt Die Zeit 21. September 2023:

Von hier aus erklärt sich Wagenknechts Abneigung gegen die Grünen und gegen verwandte Positionen in der Linkspartei. Für sie sind Aktivisten des Antirassismus, Antisexismus, Antikolonialismus und so weiter nichts als wissentliche oder unwissentliche Helfer des Kapitals. Indem sie nicht an die Eigentumsfrage heranwollen, sondern an Sprache und Sozialverhalten, suggerieren sie eine Lösung für ungerechte Verhältnisse dort, wo gar keine zu finden ist. Arbeitnehmer und Arbeitslose zerfleischen sich in Genderdebatten, während die Arbeitgeber ungehindert ihren ausbeuterischen Geschäften nachgehen können.

As US Republican-led states have rushed to ban #gender-affirming for minors, some families with #transgender children found a bit of solace: At least they lived in states that would allow those already receiving puberty blockers or hormone therapy to continue.

But in some places the care has abruptly been halted because medical providers are wary of harsh liability provisions in those same laws.

FASCINATING bit of #research here into #gender stereotyping & #socialmedia use:

So much to unpack. The socially constructed ideas of #gender, #masculinity and #manliness. The concept of #Femmephobia which does so much damage to so many people.

The lingering ideological construct of what makes one gender one thing, and another gender another thing lingers on.

I'm not surprised. I am sad.

And also curious, given that a former US President basically lived on socials - I'd love to know how the research participants rated him on "manliness" scale...

A protest sign that says:

I am Palestinian, Arab and Muslim. I am gay. I exist.

A progressive rainbow flag goes through the word gay. A Palestinian flag is next to the word Palestinian. The symbol of the Arab League is above the word Arab. A crescent and a five-pointed star is above the word Muslim.

On the margin are the words:
I am here
* I am queer *
Get used to it
Learn about me
I am your son, friend, bro.

The lyrics to "change your mind" by Rebecca Sugar are on another margin.

the situation in korea seems to be equally abysmal in terms of cultural acceptance and support of single moms.

here's a video by canadian expats living in korea, with many stats and some stories:

here's a video by the news channel "asian boss" about being a single mom in korea:

korean documentary profiling a charity called "babybox":

al jazeera documentary about single moms in korea:

the screenshots below are from the al jazeera documentary. the mom is talking about how jobs wouldn't want to hire her if they learned she was a single mom. she says: "since i didn't take proper steps in life, i'm considered problematic. to put it bluntly, i'm dirty. that's how it is. i am lucky to qualify for $120 a month in government aid. some single mums only receive about $70." here, she brings up similar issues about conformity that the japan youtuber brought up about japan: anything that marks you as "different" makes you a "problem", especially if you deviated from norms in an "irresponsible" way. and she also brings up purity culture when she says "to put it bluntly, i'm dirty" (in the eyes of the employer). which is huge huge huge huge and common across many cultures.

another issue that makes being a single mom in japan & korea so tough is that babies are registered with the government not as individuals, but on a family registry. that registry includes divorces with a big fat red X as well. it goes back multiple generations, and as they discuss in the babybox documentary, many babies are given up for adoption because the family doesn't want a father-less baby on the family registry. i don't know if china or other countries also have this family registry system, but it definitely seems like one of those ways that the concept of "family" is weaponized against any perceived "deviants" from the rules for what a family should be. it would be good for me to learn more about the history of the family registry system - where, when, and how it came about.

anyway, it may not surprise you that i have some strong thoughts about the concept of "family" as well. and let us remember that some of the most important critiques of "The Family" come from feminist scholarship, going way way back. because, as many women know, doing things "for the family" or "because of the family" is a major way that women get put down and kept in line. (ask me about the things i've been pressured to do "for the family"...go ahead...ask... 💀​)

anyway, if you're sensitive to these issues, please consider not watching the videos because it's a severely awful situation.

do y'all like youtube cultural studies as much as i do? i especially like the "cross-cultural explanation" genre where people who are fluent in multiple languages help bridge the gap in understanding about what a place or people are like. a lot of them veer into the "what you should know if you're going to date a russian girl!" arena, but some are very nice.

this particular channel is run by a japanese returnee (someone who was born in japan, grew up or spent time in another country, and then returned to japan). he makes english language material about japan.

this is a video about conformity in japan (a major interest for me because i was also badgered by conformity pressures growing up, but from the old school eastern european direction. for me, conformity is one of those cultural values like gender norms or racism that i just cannot stand because of how much it has been weaponized against people and how little sense it makes to me).


my commentary:

i'm not sure how much i buy his natural determinist arguments that because japan has a higher share of natural disasters compared to its land area, it was imperative for everyone to work together and so anyone who was lazing about and not helping ("being different") was a huge detriment to the village, etc. i'm not into most forms of natural determinism, so eh.

i like his historical analysis more, where he talks about social structure in the edo period. but i'm ignorant of this history so i have no way to judge whether this makes sense or not.

from a cultural perspective, the part that was most mind-bending was the idea that a single mom is "troubling others" and so is to be shunned. i'm still wrapping my head around that one.

basically his argument is that the #1 cultural priority in japanese culture is to not trouble anyone else more than you absolutely have to. he talks about how it's the #1 thing kids are taught and it's framed as "being considerate to others."

i don't know if it really is the #1 priority, but under that frame (and with the general pressures of conformity), a single mom creates a burden on others because she can't support herself and doesn't have a husband who would support her (which is only a reality because of how strict things are in japan wrt the work culture & gender divide, right?).

in that worldview, *choosing* to become a single mom is like "ho ho, i'll just have ~other people~ solve my problems for me. here's another mouth to feed!"

i guess that's pretty similar to the "welfare queen" logic. but i guess it also applies at the family scale, not just at the societal scale.

maybe i'm just used to massive cultural diversity where some families might kick out a teen gal who comes home pregnant, but other families would be like "well, guess we're about to have another baby to welcome to the world!"

but yea, to call a woman who has a child without having a father locked-in as "selfish"....that starts sending me into pure rage.

especially when you consider all the ways that an unmarried person might become pregnant..

or the fact that even if you *do* get pregnant with a husband and do "everything right", half the time he'll leave you anyway! or be abusive and so even worse to have in the house... with some men, you can't get them to leave even if you want them to. (and that, my friends, is the premise of the 90s comedy "practical magic.")

yea, it makes my heart rate increase in the bad way...the way where i start to think about whether my daggers have been sharpened lately. (full disclosure: they are imaginary daggers.)

maybe i'm a little sensitive on this subject because i've known many single moms. and last i checked, pretty much every single one of them wanted the best for their child and in order to provide that, they do things that other people could never imagine themselves doing. which, in my mind, is about as selfless as it gets.

in conclusion, down with conformity. hate it!

Okay, #Tarot people. How does better contemporary awareness shape how you work with traditional Tarot's assumptions about #gender?

First, you have the gender biases built into Emperors and Empresses, Popes and Priestesses. Then you have the imbalanced court cards, with their three males and single female per suit.

I wanted to reprise this subject for those who haven't seen my previous videos about it--even in the very few areas in the #UnitedStates that allegedly have legalized #topFreeEquality, there's no guarantee cops won't arrest you anyway.

Of course, if #mainstreammedia #socialMedia platforms like #tiktok #Instagram #facebook #YouTube #tumblr etc-forever allowed #femalePresenting #women like me to go topless on these platforms EXACTLY LIKE ANY "MALE-LOOKING PERSON CAN," but I'm not holding my breath on that ever happening.

People need to realise you can't change a trans person's gender identity. No matter how much society, parents or family try to force it. No matter how much trans people damage their own mental health by trying to erase their own gender identity, it's impossible. Do you think trans people don't try to change it themselves? We learn, eventually, the hard way, it isn't possible.

Judd Legum reports today on the attempt of the North Carolina Judicial Standards Commission, packed with judges appointed by Republican chief justice Newby, to silence Supreme Court justice Anita Earls, the only Black woman on the court.

Her alleged misconduct? She has criticized the state Supreme Court for its handling of issues of racial and gender discrimination. So the court wants to make her shut up.

Step 1: as part of EU Retained Law Bill, rights to #equalpay were scrapped;

[#Tory support among women continues to fall]

Step 2: Labour says it will introduce #gender pay equality laws early if they are elected;

Step 3: Suddenly, #Tories make a public commitment to introduce a law to protect gender equality rights to pay in the Autumn.

But, announcing the reintroduction of equal pay legislation is likely to be more declaratory politics;

Petro-masculinity: Fossil Fuels and Authoritarian Desire

“The concept of petro-masculinity suggests that fossil fuels mean more than profit; fossil fuels also contribute to making identities, which poses risks for post-carbon energy politics.”

"It is no coincidence that white, conservative men – regardless of class – appear to be among the most vociferous climate deniers, as well as leading #FossilFuel proponents in the West”.

What if we branded environmentalism as "masculine"?
#climatechange #climatecrisis #environment #gender

1. For decades, the right has tried to brand environmentalism as "effeminate" and weak.

"MANLY": Fossil fuels
"Feminine": Renewable energy

M: Diesel pickup
F: Prius

M: Trashing
F: Recycling

M: "America First"
F: Paris Accord

2. What if we branded environmental awareness as masculine?

It's hard to be a tough guy... when you can't breathe

Tough-looking guy in front of factory belching smoke: I'll punch you in the face! *gasp! wheeze!* As soon as I find my inhaler.

3. Trucks are for wimps. Real men use real muscles.

Guy on bicycle yelling at guy in giant truck: Outta my way, softie!

4. Don't be a "climate cuck"!

Military sergeant-type guy pointing at a Koch brother in the background giving a suitcase full of cash to the GOP: This is a battle, and fossil fuel-addicted weaklings are running from it. Time to man up!

Thank you for the article.

An editorial note: The headline and continued usage of the term “wrong bathroom” is wrong(misleading).

Sumptuary laws are themselves wrong(unethical). Where one has to use #gender segregated bathrooms, the wrong(incorrect) one is the one that is not designated for their gender.

The framing of “wrong bathroom” functionally cosigns a belief(incorrect) that their gender and identity is not theirs, but is something external authorities assign. (illegitimate)

Self-Parodic Sages

1. Bill Maher: "Barbie" is man-hating and patriarchy is a zombie lie! Why does everyone keep talking about this remnant from the past?

Arrow pointing to Maher: Remnant from the past

2. Young right-wing pundit: America is a white nation and slavery wasn't so bad. Why does everyone keep talking about race?

3. Older right-wing figure: A man will use a ladies' bathroom over my dead body! Also, why does everyone keep talking about the trans people?

4. Woman to guy from previous panel: Maybe if you stopped provoking people with ignorant bigotry they wouldn't need to talk about race and gender so much.

Man: How dare you say I can't talk about these things?
