Three Inevitabilaties: Death, Taxes, and Radfems Hating On “Sexbot” Women

Oh, but it didn’t take long before the Patriarchy Police struck back at RenegadeEvolution and her views on objectification, didn’t it?? Yup…less than four hours after RenEv posted her piece, this anonymous missile landed in her comments section:

It’s absurd that a woman with a body that looks like an advertisement for muscularity, starvation and obviously fake breasts would write about anything real or natural. You talk about “sexualized caricatures of women”? Look in the mirror! You’re a perfect example! You embody what the Patriarchy likes in its women, or more acurately, its whores. How many real women do you think look like that or further more, want to look like that? You can say you are thin naturally as much as you like, but no one gets that definition without work, and that chest of yours is so obviously unreal it is painful. Congratulations, you look like a sex toy, which I can only assume was your intent.    It’s no wonder you have to deal with people looking down on you and stereotyping you, you ARE a stereotype!

Forget about all the contradictions and oxymorons abounding in that last statement (muscular and starvation??? The notion of what "real women" look like?? As if RenEv is a freakin’ alien sexbot from Romulus??)…it’s the stupid assumption that RenEv even began to represent herself as every woman (rather than her own self), that really gets me. Either way, it was just too loony to resist a response:

Oh, I’m sooooo sorry, RenEv, but that last attempted anonymous crackback is just too tempting to pass up.    ‘
Yo, Anon….who the fuck are you to lecture anyone on what a "real woman" should look like?? Just because a woman chooses to have breast implants (and gee, what does that say about women who are naturally well endowed??) or chooses to work out to maintain muscular and fit bodies (as opposed to the thin-as-a-rail anorexic model so popularized by Madison Avenue and Hollywood actresses) does not in any way reduce her to a "sex toy"…..it merely makes her a woman with a particular style and feel that she likes.
And in your rage to blast RenEv as a living sexbot toy for Patriarchy, you may have missed the part where she says that not every woman wants to or needs to copy her style; she only stands for herself. Unlike you, of course, who claims to speak for every "real" women (I guess that RenEv must be an alien android or a male impersonator, then??). But then again, such is the hypocrisy and meanspiritedness of today’s modern radical cultural feminist; always gripping about how women should be unified…while demonizing other women who don’t fit their narrow standards of "sisterhood".
 I’m sure that I will be construed as "butting in" again by the likes of Witchy-Woo…but so what. This shit is getting real old….real quick.
Her body, her choice. You don’t like it….too bad.
 End of take/rant.

This is where the phrase "Be careful of what you ask for, ‘cuz ‘ya might just get it" really comes to mind…because Anon decides to attempt a more direct smackback at moi:

MR: Kennerson-    “Just because a woman chooses to have breast implants (and gee, what does that say about women who are naturally well endowed??)”
Women who are naturally well endowed are NATURALLY well endowed. Their breasts are a real part of them, not some saline bags shoved in their chest that will never look or be natural. What is natural about going to a doctor, undergoing anesthetic, getting your breasts cut open, having something synthetic shoved in them, then having them sewn back together?  

“…does not in any way reduce her to a "sex toy"…..”   
She’s a stripper and in porn. That is the sex industry. What does that make her? A liberated, empowered icon of feminism that strikes a blow against male domination every time she spreads her legs? I don’t think so. “But then again, such is the hypocrisy and meanspiritedness of today’s modern radical cultural feminist; always gripping about how women should be unified…while demonizing other women who don’t fit their narrow standards of "sisterhood".”
How on earth could any radical feminist truly unify with a woman who supports, works in, and rationalizes the continued exploitation of other women in the sex industry? Even if her intent is noble and if she is there of her own free will, stripping, pornography and prostitution are based upon the degradation, abuse and use of women. Biologically, she may be my sister, but ideologically, we are no relation. Even if there is non-abusive, non-exploitive ‘exotic dancing’ or porn out there, that is not (by her own admission) what she does, or enjoys, and for every woman like her that likes ‘violent sex’ or showing off her body to men for money there are twenty-five who do not. If the industry was filled with nothing but women like her I might feel differently, but it is not, and if I have to make ‘a demon’ out of Renegade to humanize those others, I will.
“I’m sure that I will be construed as "butting in" again by the likes of Witchy-Woo…but so what. This shit is getting real old….real quick. Her body, her choice. You don’t like it….too bad.”
It’s apparent you’ve never had to deal with sexism and misogyny in the ways a woman does. It’s apparent you’ve never known how the words and thoughts many men have about women like Renegade reflect upon the rest of us and color male thinking towards us. Face it, Mr. Kennerson, you are a man, so you have no idea what it is like to be a woman. Yes, it is her body and her choice and I do not have to like it, and I have the right to tell her so.  

11:34 AM [Some emphasis added by me.]

OK….now it’s my turn.

What is natural about going to a doctor, undergoing anesthetic, getting your breasts cut open, having something synthetic shoved in them, then having them sewn back together? I don’t know…you tell me what is so natural about doing the same thing for a Caeserian section or an angioplasty or putting a plate on a broken bone or an organ transplant?? And why those invasive and highly dangerous surgeries are more acceptable to you than breast implants.  Oh, wait, none of the latter have anything to do with SEX, now doesn’t it??

And most implant surgery these days don’t involve that much cutting anymore, in case you didn’t know….now they insert catherers from the belly to insert the implants, then fill them up latter. And it wouldn’t matter anyway if RenEv was naturally endowed, since you’d still find a way to label her a slut and a sexbot who brings women/feminists down..so why bring up her implants, anyway??

She’s a stripper and in porn. That is the sex industry. What does that make her? A liberated, empowered icon of feminism that strikes a blow against male domination every time she spreads her legs? I don’t think so.

No, not an icon of feminism….just an individual woman who decides to take full advantage of what she has to offer, and actually like what she does for a living.  And actually, she isn’t really in porn, since she hasn’t made any commercial movies. But then, that wouldn’t matter to you either, wouldn’t it?? But this is the real kicker:

It’s apparent you’ve never had to deal with sexism and misogyny in the ways a woman does. It’s apparent you’ve never known how the words and thoughts many men have about women like Renegade reflect upon the rest of us and color male thinking towards us. Face it, Mr. Kennerson, you are a man, so you have no idea what it is like to be a woman.   

Now…just imagine, friends, neighbors and Clones, if I decided one day to post a similar paragraph to an obnoxious racist asshat:

It’s apparent you’ve never had to deal with [racism] and [bigotry] in the ways a [Black man] does. It’s apparent you’ve never known how the words and thoughts many [Whites] have about [Black men] like [rapper Ludacris] reflect upon the rest of us and color [White] thinking towards us. Face it, Mrs. Anonymous, you are a [White person], so you have no idea what it is like to be a [Black man].

Luda’s here just as an hypothetical example.

Now, such an analysis might even be true (since my being a man and having a working dick might disqualify me from knowing what it would be like to live inside a woman’s body)….but, you see, there is this tiny bit of issue with something called "empathy".  You see, Anon, I happen to have been developed in a woman’s womb (rest in peace, Ma); shared that same womb with a female who grew up to be apretty strong and active young woman (I’m a fraternal twin); grew up with five sisters in a big family (and still lives with one of them and her family; have a gaggle of nephews and nieces, most of whom happen to be girls; and, in my current occupation as a middle-level supervisor, oversees mostly women. And, of course, I meet and greet women of all ages, sizes, temperments, and desires online.

Trust me on this one, Anon….I may not know about being a woman, but I know and respect plenty of women who are; and I have learned plenty about what they endure. Of course, I could go off on you on the same wavelength about not knowing a damn thing about men and about how the thoughts of the likes of Andrea Dworkin and Catherine MacKinnon color female opinions of us as innate brutes…..but I’m not one for cattiness and petty BS.

The main point is, Anon, that when all the crap is wiped off and the shades are removed, the only thing left remaining about your obsession with bashing Renegade Evolution for her sexual choices and her occupation is just plain simple sex-hate against women who dare to actually like sex more than you want them to.  RenEv never claimed for one second to represent all women or all feminists; but you openly attempt to slam all women who don’t share your narrow views as sexbots and mindless whores kneeling to The Mighty Patriarchial Cock…if not enablers to rape and pillarage. 

In my view, you’re a far worse objectifier than any pornographer ever could be.

I’ve heard your opinions, and now you know mine. Let’s leave it at that, and may our paths not cross again.

And try not to hide behind anonymity next time you attempt a drive-by bashing of a woman who did no harm to you. It makes you look less like a coward.

  1. shussh, AK, you SO know I am a Replicant, dude…

    and actually, I did get cut open for the implants (and LIVED To TELL!)

    I just layeth my own layer of smack uponst the Anony one…maybe, with my lack of subtletly, it will sink in…

  2. Heh.

    Just saw your righteous crackback….just love the way you know how to use a keyboard to bust ass. (Figuratively speaking, of course.)

    Anthony

  3. Face it, Mr. Kennerson, you are a man, so you have no idea what it is like to be a woman.

    When I read the above statement Anonymous posted on Renegade’s site in reply to your comments, my reaction was disbelief. Then I remembered an adage that stated, if I recall correctly, if you have no compassion for any oppressed people other than your own, your oppressor has truly won.

    After following the reading the discussions at the various blogs that you mentioned, I was reminded of Benford’s law of Controversy, which states: Passion is inversely proportional to the amount of real information available. When I did find valid information or references to statistical studies, I could have easily missed them, since they were wedged in between two paragraphs of vitriol.

    I find all this ironic since if it were not for the Civil Rights Movement there would be no Feminist Movement. The Civil Rights Act of 1968 was passed because the statute was expanded to include sexual discrimination as well as discrimination based on race and national origin among the illegal acts. If the rights of women and blacks were won by such political maneuvering, one would think that both groups would remain allies. In the northern metroplitan area where I live, the black liberal politicians have proven to be our strongest allies in providing healthcare to poor women and children.

    Am I a sex-positive feminist? Yes, although some may consider that an oxymoron. Thirty years ago I became a feminist because I saw it as the only social agenda that would improve the lives of men, women and children. Improving lives is predicated upon empowerment. And what is perhaps the greatest source of our personal power? Our sexuality. Even if there are aspects of industrial porn that I find disquieting, I will not support censorship, because that weapon can be used so easily against those of us who value the freedom of sexual expression.

    If you need a place to visit, read and rest from the battle, I suggest you visit Literate Perversions, the blog of Chris A. Hall, who is a fine writer. While Chris allows me to post as a guest, the site is his and I think that you will enjoy his writing and find a kindred spirit.
