31. small rant
I remember back in the 60s and early 70's when womens liberation was starting to seep into the antiwar progressive movement. Back then, many of the men in the movement were the leaders, and expected the women to 'make coffee' and have sex with them, and thats about it! these so called progressive men were really pissed off when the women started to form their own groups and talk about women's oppression. they would yell at us and scream that we had no right to speak of oppression or womens rights , and to stfu, and stop rocking the boat, and concentrate on the REAL issues and ..go make coffee..
so we split from them and did our own thing. they fell apart soon after that.
the attitude was that women's issues werent important...they were frivolous..issues like RAPE LAWS and VIOLENCE LAWS were frivolous.
when I see all the antigay and antiwomen posts and attitudes here, it reminds me of that crap.
rant off.
