Time for a Timely Quote; or No More What About teh Menz | Dusk Is Falling What happens when men enter women’s feminist spaces? Dale Spender did an experiment to find out, and published the results in Man Made Language: Present at the discussion, which was a workshop on sexism and education in London, were thirty-two women and five men. Apart from the fact that the tape revealed that the men talked for over 50 per cent of the time, it also revealed that what the men wanted to talk about – and the way in which they wanted to talk – was given precedence.[...]There is no doubt in my mind that in this context at least (and I do not think it was an atypical one) it was the five males and not the thirty-two females who were defining the parameters of the talk. I suspect that neither the women nor the men were conscious of this.
Rape Culture 101 can be found here. On Divorcing Slurs from Their Contexts: There are men (and women) who would swear up, down, and backwards that they're not homophobic, and may even genuinely be supportive of full LGBTQ equality, but nonetheless continue to use the word fag to malign other men—or use "gay" as a negative descriptor. They just like the words. They don't want to give them up, because they haven't found anything else that feels quite so good rolling off the tongue as "What a fag!" and "That's so gay." Feminism 101
To assist you in identifying and resisting dominant and unequal power relationships in your life, we’ve compiled a list of common phrases people in historically dominant roles have been conditioned to and may use to try to silence oppressed others, particularly when they perceive their dominance to be challenged. The quotations below were used by men against women and are thus patriarchal; however, one could expect to find similar strategic dismissals and silencing of the accounts and concerns of people of color, working class and poor people, queer and LGBTQI people, young people, fat people, disabled people, and other marginalized folks in the discourses of those who discriminate against them. The simultaneous and intersecting nature of oppression is also considered here. These strategies, and others we may have missed, can be found in any order, but from our experiences attempts to silence us commonly go something like this: Handy Reference Guide to Identifying Oppressive Silencing « sisters of resistance
But this is the problem you bring up a contentious issue, ask if you a feminist if you believe differently and say you don't want to talk about the issue. A little too cute no? I think you can clearly be a feminist and think abortion is wrong, a bad choice, perhaps even immoral. You can try to persuade women not to get them and refuse to get one yourself even if you know your baby is going to die within weeks of birth. You can do all that and be a feminist.

Après cet article, mes camarades du forum ubuntu-fr se sont dit que ce serait chouette de faire plein de réponses simples de ce genre à des questions basiques qu’on entend souvent dans les conversations et débats sur le féminisme. Il y a vraiment des remarques qui reviennent à chaque fois et certaines sont vraiment très agaçantes, d’autant plus que son auteur est persuadé d’avoir trouvé une super faille. Ainsi est née la F.A.Q. du sexisme accessible aux débutants ! Merci aux nombreuses auteures, crédits à la fin de l’article. Merci aussi aux personnes qui n’ont pas signé.

Transphobic feminism makes no sense, argues Laurie Penny Laurie Penny, 6 December 2009 For decades, the feminist movement has been split over the status of trans people, and of trans women in particular. High-profile feminists such as Germaine Greer, Jan Raymond and Julie Bindel have spoken out against what Greer terms "people who think they are women, have women's names, and feminine clothes and lots of eyeshadow, who seem to us to be some kind of ghastly parody". Some prominent radical feminists have publicly declared that trans women are misogynist, "mutilated men"; trans people have responded to this harassment by vigorously defending themselves, demanding that anti-trans feminists are denied platforms to speak on other issues and, in some cases, by renouncing feminism altogether.

Let’s talk Au risque de redire, d’enfoncer de nouvelles portes, d’affirmer l’évident, laissez moi vous expliquer une nouvelle fois une chose simple : on fait ce qu’on veut. Et pour paraphraser Les Valseuses, on s’énervera quand on aura envie de s’énerver. Alors bien sur, on ne fait pas exactement ce qu’on veut, nous, hommes, femmes, sommes soumis aux lois, au contrat social, à la vie en bonne intelligence, mais en dehors des grandes lignes, nous sommes absolument libres de nos réactions, de nos sentiments, de nos émotions même, n’ayons pas peur des vilains mots. Il est inutile de nous expliquer qu’il faudrait mieux nous tenir, éviter de nous exprimer de manière trop brutale, il est vain d’espérer que nous nous adaptions à vos codes, à vos règles, il est stupide d’exiger nous de la pédagogie, de la douceur, notre voix nous appartient, notre mode d’expression aussi.
S’il est un phénomène que les militants, peu importe la cause, connaissent bien, c’est l’énergumène. Pour employer un mot gentil. Sinon je parlerais de gros connard qui n’y connait rien mais vient ramener sa pseudo science. [French] Les trolls féministes
