Ilyka — conservative blogger, longtime contact, and friend — has taken it upon herself to declare this week “Blog Against Strawfeminism Week” in response to a recent flood of feminist-wary posts by conservative female bloggers, many of whom (surprise!) battle the strawfeminist. I did help with a few ideas via email, which Ilyka is completely open about, but she takes the baton and runs marathons.
This week isn’t so much for those who are feminists already, as it is for those who:
— don’t consider themselves feminists at all;
— aren’t sure whether they are feminists or not;
— would have been feminists in Susan B. Anthony’s day, but now? Forget it!
— just want to wean themselves from dependency and overreliance on the Strawfeminist in their arguments with actual, non-straw-based, feminist lifeforms.
Start here. Go now.
EDITED: I lied. Ilyka has asked that we do participate in the discussion if we’d like.
