Anarchy Regional Message Board
There's nothing to be conflicted about. If you can see the value in not wiping out your society with various prion diseases (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prion#Prion_diseases_and_their_transmission_properties), you'll be happy to forbid it. Now, carefully regulated and sanitized slaughtering procedures might prevent such things, but I assume we don't really have to get into the potential problems with that sort of thing. Although I think that is one of the options in that particular issue; suffice it to say that "eat the poor" is likely to become the literal motto of the Filet-o'-People market.
To the extent that anarchism is basically an effort of abolish eating the poor in any sense, prohibiting cannibalism is perfectly OK.
The good news is, though, that if you've organized your economics such as to generally avoid mass starvation via famine (the general conditions of historical instances), you probably don't have to worry about it. An ounce of prevention, etc.
people aren't perfect or even consistent or logical in their views. so while anarchism by definition is incompatible with sexism, having anarchists that are sexist is just part of reality.
the best example is proudhon himself, the first guy who referred as himself as an anarchist and basically responsible for the recognition of anarchism as one political school of thought. his racism and sexism was way beyond what todays right-leaning mainstream society would tolerate.
As Sierra Lyricalia posted there are plenty of examinations of sexist and frateral behaviour inside the anarchist traditions, to assume that a self-described anarchist will automatically, by default, behave in ways acceptable to feminism is a bit too idealistic, and simply not true. Who here would say that proudhon was not an anarchist? Yet his critics honestly show him to be anti-semitic. Not all "anarchists" can be Will Godwin or Ben Tucker. Even ghandi had a sexist streak. Those "peculiar types" you mention, i think are more commonly know as feminazis? which is another important point. Feminism isn't and shouldn't be the preserve of the left. There are fascist feminists as much as there are fascist doctors and fascist miners. From a materialist point of view feminism reaching across philosophical and moral ideologies is a good thing at the current time. The more pressure we can put on the status quo, from all and any parts of society, the faster we will reach a (dialectic) critical mass and change society. How long that situation lasts, i couldn't say and there will soon come a time when right-wing feminists must be confronted. But all the easier to defeat them when we anarchists, as a generalised sub-culture, have examined ourselves in an honest and conscientious way and resolved our own internal contradictions.
I was writing while you posted so I only just read that so sorry for seeming to be condescending,
but the main thought behind my post is a materialism vs idealism thing really anyway.
I propose we go on with constructing embassies between Anarchy and HBO. Do you agree, comrades?
A small, growing anarchist region? I am in favour.
no worries. it seems we agree for the most part anyway.
though i think, if we want to gain popular support for anarchism, that it would be a good idea to critisise authoritarian right-wing "feminists" right now. if we wait for complete resolution of internal contradictions we will wait forever. and at the moment the majority of the population (as i perceive it) considers the right-wing of feminism to be equal to feminism as a whole and as the main issue of the political left. if we speak out against it, we show consistency, raise awareness for what feminism really is and for once have something in common with mainstream society.
