Our thanks to Douglas for this. Mona Eltahawy is a blithering idiot, even by feminist standards. Douglas writes:
Feminist writer Mona Eltahawy, in a recent interview promoting her new book that “radical steps” says steps must be taken to destroy the “patriarchy”, including “justified violence” against men. Aren’t we lucky that women are so peaceful and that there would be no violence if only feminist ran the world!
An extract from the article, in response to a question asking what the word “patriarchy” means to her:
I want people to imagine patriarchy as an octopus. The head of that octopus is patriarchy [J4MB: So patriarchy is an octopus, and the head of that octopus? That makes sense, at least in #WhackoFeministLand.] because that is the ideology that moves the eight tentacles of the octopus. And each one of those tentacles is what we call systems of oppression, or various institutions that oppress us. So it would be white supremacy, capitalism, misogyny, homophobia, bigotry, ableism, things like that. I want people to understand that patriarchy is not men. I’m talking about an ideology that uses systems of institutions and oppressions to privilege male dominance.
