Radical feminists have been talking about motherhood and children for a long time. We have been talking about boy children for just about as long (or as long) as we have been talking about men, and the clear and present danger male-bodied persons pose to girls and women. To wit, radical and separatist-minded women have been pushing back against entitled mothers for decades, if not centuries or longer, where those mothers have insisted that all women’s liberation requires that mothers be centered and catered-to within feminism, and that always, always includes accepting their boy children in female-only space. This is a huge problem for us, and has destroyed more radical and potentially-radical projects than most of us even know about. Anyone that’s been around longer than 3 minutes, and read more than 3 lines of our historical and contemporary text knows this.
And it’s not as if we don’t know why mothers including boymoms would apparently rather see radicalism and female-only space burn before it excludes or doesn’t center and cater-to mothers and their children, including their super-precious boy-children. Sure, women consistently prioritize males over females, sure mothers enjoy the multiple benefits of state-sanctioned breeding, including whatever current and future resources they believe they are entitled to for having given birth to males — I won’t call this privilege, for the reasons I have stated before, but you get the picture.
But radical feminists have identified another reason that mothers, specifically boymoms, cannot and will not stop sucking-off, uh, suckling, their boy children even as they age into adults, and then into fully grown men, at the obvious expense of all girls and women everywhere including the mothers themselves, and that reason is mother-love. Note that I said reason and not excuse. Males have excuses for their own behavior, but women generally have actual reasons for doing what they do and don’t-do, for example, males excuse their own violence including violence against women in a million billion ways, while women usually have very good reasons for physically harming men, if and when we harm them at all. Self-defense is a reason, but passion is an excuse. Get it? Good.Continue reading “Boy Moms. Willfully Ignorant Since Forever. Or, Excuse vs. Reason.”
