I’m also not going to fuck with the idea that I’m not a good radfem or that I’m ~dicked in the head~ or what the fuck ever because I’m in a straight relationship. No one that I follow has said anything like this, but while we’re tip-toeing around the subject of good radfem requirements I just wanted to nip that one in the bud.
I don’t think my relationship or my love for my male partner has ever really effected my thoughts on feminism. If anything, my thoughts on feminism have effected my relationship, not the other way around. However, I would be open to further discussion and examination on this topic.
While there may be something to be said for how being straight effects your views on men and radical feminism, I agree with nextyearsgirl that we shouldn’t be making lists of requirements for who gets to be a radical feminist. I really don’t want this to be baby-gate all over again, or for it to be something that divides us as a community.
