I do not necessarily endorse everything it says, but I do contingently agree with a lot of it. Content note for profanity, social justice stuff, manosphere stuff, and graphic descriptions of sex.
I trust that any debate this kicks up will be marked by courtesy and good manners on all sides, in a spirit of sincere collaborative truth-seeking — SA] I.
What is the purpose of this post? I am primarily arguing with the blogger Heartiste, as he is one of the most famous and influential writers within the manosphere, although I do briefly argue with other writers. I am also going to ignore the macro-level beliefs about how human society works, on the grounds that they are mostly derived from these micro-level observations about human sexuality and fall down when no longer grounded in them.
What does Heartiste believe about human sexual interaction? Ideally, women want to get pregnant by alpha males and make betas take care of the child.
There are also omega males, who are undesirable to women for any purpose. I am 22 years old. I have 32A breasts and a waist-to-hip ratio of. Pictures are available here.
I have had 30 sexual partners. I am polyamorous, which means I openly and honestly date multiple people at the same time.
I have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, social phobia, and generalized anxiety disorder. I have a degree in sociology and gender studies. I am currently a camgirl, which means I take off my clothes and masturbate for money on the Internet.
I am a nonbinary trans person, but I was born with a vagina, a female-typical hormone balance, and as far as I am aware two X chromosomes. I currently possess all of these traits and will probably do so indefinitely.
That means I am not a trans woman. I am heading in the totally opposite direction than trans women are. Get them off me!
In addition, I do actually think that sex differences exist. I think that level of violence, libido, probably certain aspects of sexuality such as getting off on narrative versus getting off on visuals, and probably some stuff with emotions are all inherent, biological gender differences.
I am not willing to rule out other differences nor to state that I believe in them. It is a very boring prediction of feminist theory that the genders behave differently from each other. After all, if you divide children into two random groups and tell half of them to be courageous and half of them to be gentle, one half is probably going to be courageous and the other is going to be gentle.Feminist Analysis: Trifles Feminist criticism is concerned with "the ways in which literature reinforce or undermine the economic, political, social, and psychological oppression of women" (Tyson).
This school of theory looks at how our culture is inherently patriarchal and struggles to reveal males biased writing against women.
