Ben, pentru ca numele complet a respectivei cyber-orto-(dar nu inca post)-feministe a fost Shulamith Bath Shmuel Ben Ari Feuerstein. Cunoscuta pentru carticica ei The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution (1970) – un fel de Hot in Cleveland in care nimeni nu rade. Mai jos, un citat:

‘What are some of the prime components of this resistance that is keeping people from experimenting with alternatives to the family, and where does it come from? We are all familiar with the details of Brave New World: cold collectives, with individualism abolished, sex reduced to a mechanical act, children become robots, Big Brother intruding into every aspect of private life, rows of babies fed by impersonal machines, eugenics manipulated by the state, genocide of cripples and retards for the sake of a super-race created by white-coated technicians, all emotion considered weakness, love destroyed, and so on. The family (which, despite its oppressiveness, is now the last refuge from the encroaching power of the state, a shelter that provides the little emotional warmth, privacy, and individual comfort now available) would be destroyed, letting this horror penetrate indoors.’ [p. 210]

Evident, institutia casatoriei e, pentru o radfem ca Shulamith, imaginea infernului ejaculat, patriarhal, pe pamant. In acelasi timp, ea isi da totusi seama ca, respectiva institutie odata abolita, vidul lasat astfel in urma va fi umplut cu ceva mult mai oribil. Mda, isi da seama, dar nu are ce face: casatoria trebuie ucisa, oricare ar fi riscurile.

Cateva randuri mai departe, scrie:

‘Rather than concentrating the female principle into a “private” retreat, into which men periodically duck for relief, we want to rediffuse it – for the first time creating society from the bottom up. Man’s difficult triumph over Nature has made it possible to restore the truly natural: he could undo Adam’s and Eve’s curse both, to reestablish the earthly Garden of Eden. But in his long toil his imagination has been stilled: he fears an enlargement of his drudgery, through the incorporation of Eve’s curse into his own.’ [p. 211]

Adam? Eve? The undo of the Fall? Ce treaba au toate mizeriile astea popesti cu feminismul radical?! – ar spune unii / unele… Nu si eu. Si cam atat.

> Btw, carticica poate fi coborata de aici.
