Sheila Jeffreys is My Hero …

Found this online today in the category of what has been called sex-positive feminist women (aka sex workers and others who embrace the agency of being “hot” sexually) mistaking Professor Sheila Jeffreys as their target in fighting against others (described as “anti-sex” by sex-pozzie women) who as feminists oppose  men sexually exploiting women → 

Just like peace at any price, sex (and men having a piece) at any price cannot be good.  In the longest war, pitting one group of women against another has been an effective divide-and-conquer strategy, aided by much media manipulation.  The anti-Sheila blogger indicates that she keeps adjusting her medication (which would necessarily affect her consciousness).  Psych-drugs and shrinks as a weapon of mass deception against women in man’s longest war, yes, oh, yes, but that would be another post about misogyny in the philosophy of psychiatry.

The contrasting image which also relates to the  divide-and-conquer strategies of men against feminism is this one posted by Allecto at Gorgon Poisons→

Sex on men’s terms, devastating to women because there’s a real (if undeclared) war with very real violence going on.  To end man’s war against womankind may take men not just doing laundry and ending non-sexual violence, but practicing celibacy as a commitment to not exploiting women.  Real celibacy, not what Catholic priests pretend to do.  Unless men wise up and take better action, Mother Nature might just wipe men out and leave women with procreative parthenogenesis.  Life will go on, with or without men.

I’m proposing celibacy for bi and het-sex men (any men born as men interested in sexual relations with women) as the ground of being to expand male consciousness as a pathway toward real peace.  Celibacy for this group of people would mean that no woman would be sexually exploited by any xy-chromosome humanoid while a lasting peace is sought through heightened awareness  for all.   Peace at any price?  No.  But peace may come if we can see the chronic global misogyny without denial, and break  free from male-dominant global culture.    

None of us have to agree on all points about how to end male violence.  But some of our best and most thought-provoking thinkers, some of them lesbians like Professor Sheila Jeffreys (who abhors violence and domination in any form),  regularly receive mean-spirited public attacks about their views.  Yet they keep on provoking our thoughts outside the sound-bite box of what’s “hot” right now.

Sheila Jeffreys is my hero.
