the battle of the puffy eye


"Patriarchy is not men. Patriarchy is a system in which both women and men participate. It privileges, inter alia, the interests of boys and men over the bodily integrity, autonomy, and dignity of girls and women. It is subtle, insidious, and never more dangerous than when women passionately deny that they themselves are engaging in it."-ashley judd

 

this piece by ashley judd is eloquent, well reasoned and demonstrates command of the scholarly corpus of three waves of feminism. which is why it wins the battle but loses the war. a patriach will find a body to tie a political idea to and then brutalise the body to public death. that is one way olitical ideas may be killed.
