Anyway, other than those zndrea, very brief disagreements which are vital disagreements no lessall the rest of this book were tremendous toward building my understanding of the world. A Freudian delight no doubt.

Woman Hating

Philosophical Essays on Pornography and Objectification. To get the most out of the text, focus on patterns in Dworkin’s analysis of the physio-psychological enforcement and internalization of misogyny rather than her specific examples.

That culture no longer organically reflects us, it is not our sum total, it is womaan the collective phenomenology of our creative possibilities—it possess and rules us, reduces us, obstructs the flow of sexual and creative energy and activity, penetrates even into what Freud called the id, gives nightmare shape to natural desire. What’s interesting about reading her writing chronologically dwlrkin hopefully I’ll see the various changes over time vs. Weird in some parts, loved the others. Gender Feminism and Ifeminism: No viable fetus has ever womxn from one person alone.

Woman Hating – Wikipedia

This is one of those texts that’s so hatin to contemporary feminist discourse that parts of it may feel tired dworki obvious. This entry has no external links. Women should read it for their own good and men should read it for the good of the women in their lives, mothers, wives, sisters and daughters.

I found the second half of the book started to break down a bit with the sections on “androgyny”.


Patricia Marino – – Inquiry: Books by Andrea Dworkin. Unfortunately, as with anyone, Andrez have my disagreements. I think Disorders of Sexual Development DSDs intersex conditions are becoming better understood now, and deserve a more rigorous approach and a whole book to deal with scientific, ethical, social issues and present opposing theories. Andrea died 10 years ago this week. An anti-war activist and anarchist in the late s, Dworkin wrote 10 books on radical feminist theory and practice.

Nov 22, Eve Hunter rated it really liked it. Haing tied together history and culture to expose patriarchy as a negative anti-life power dedicated to its own perpetuation. The last chapter dworjin no sense and is quite disturbing to be quite honest, but the rest of the book is brilliant.

Her health suffered; the last time we met, in Septembershe had lost a huge amount of weight as a result of having a gastric band fitted in an attempt to deal with her dangerous obesity. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

Ive in effect advocated fucking animals, thats ok. Germaine Greer – It was her first publication, but that’s surely no excuse. The rest was a dated b just flat out BAD. A lot of the chapters made me feel uncomfortable in all the wrong wayssuch as her aggressive opinions of incest and bestiality. The language is amazing, a rhetorically powerful argument about how the myths and ideals of femininity are harmful.

She’s spot on when she talks about witch hunts and foot-binding. I didn’t need to read about Julian Beck’s cross dressing hard on why is she so obsessed with him? I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and it gave me a lot to think about. The insanity of the foot binding reminds me of the insanity of mass plastic surgery among Asian women. Although Andrea could be high maintenance, insisting on special security measures when she spoke at conferences or other public venues her life had been threatened more than oncethere was no monstrous ego to deal with, and nothing of the spoilt, pampered middle-class feminist we Brits had come to dread in our north American sisters.


I wish I’d read this when I was sixteen.

There seems to andre a taboo taboo where it’s taboo to not talk about taboo. Monthly downloads Sorry, there are not enough data points to plot this chart.

Sexism is rampant in U. It felt very jumbled and jarring, all sorts of unexplained assertions about androgyny and taboo eroticism, even quoting the likes of John Money. bating

What Andrea Dworkin, the feminist I knew, can teach young women

She made far too much reference to a couple of creepy and disgusting books, when Womman just want to read what -she- writes. Hard-hitting and faintly crazed opus on the way men have expressed their loathing and contempt for women over the centuries, including female infanticide, footbinding in China, witch-burning anxrea other heartwarming events.

Sally Gadow – – Nursing Philosophy anddrea 2: I hadn’t considered matters from this point of view – probably, I hadn’t considered anything at all except in a most superficial way. The Political Memoir of a Feminist Militant, The significant differences present in child development, vulnerable adulthood brain capabilities, and nonhuman animal relational concepts, are all HUGE reasons these taboos exist.
