White feminists, patriarchy, and solidarity: the dangling carrot

“Consider the fact that, for 500 years, white/European women were literally executed for doing so much as resisting or disagreeing with a man for any reason. Generation after generation of mothers taught their daughter to STFU, so they could simply stay alive.

Directing hate towards women who are simply trying to exist within a culture that offers them only three options (maiden, mother, whore, if you will) is a pretty narrow way to look a the big picture. They may be cowards, but they are not the enemy.”
