(my shadow thesis)
is the discourse of ‘healing’ a process of recuperation?
(or if it is sometimes, when is that and when is it not?)
(like I really want to go to therapy but I don’t want to become ‘well-adjusted’ ie not enraged)
and like, if your leg somehow gets broken bc of capitalism, it is true that getting rid of capitalism is a good idea, but you also need a cast and maybe some physical therapy
if you’re depressed and traumatized bc of capitalism/patriarchy/every other description of the horrific and horrifying society into which we are unwillingly and unwittingly thrust
well et cetera, right?
and maybe it’s a false analogy to equate ptsd/depression/other mental health issues with something as simplistic and physical as a broken leg, but maybe it really is that simple?
(if not, why??)
it seems inappropriate and self-defeating that we should, by rejecting or denying the necessity of healing, embrace the damage we have suffered and survived at the hands of said society as our ‘natural’ selves— or the selves we ‘deserve’
to what extent can therapists provide ‘healing’ in opposition? and to what extent is the ‘healing’ therapists provide captured by the forces that caused the trauma itself?
Another mono black deck in standard??
Lord help us.
This just in: from the MRA political and strategic advisory committe:
To attain our political goal of equality with women we declare that all men must:
1) Refuse any form of sex with women
-to show women that they no longer control us.
-to gain respect in the eyes of society which sees us as being controlled by our sexual lust towards women.
2) Refuse any form of marriage with a woman
-to show that we are serious and capable of independent living
3) Refuse any form of help from a woman AND refuse to give any form of help to a woman.
-to restructure our personal lives in a more equal and fair way.
-to show that men are responsible and independent.
4) Pay all child support payments.
-to show society that we can provide for a child as well as a woman.
-to show that men are responsible and moral actors, worthy of a social status equal to that of a woman.
It is up to all men to stand together and show society we are moral, decent, and respectable. Follow this platform and encourage other men to do the same. Embody the virtues of morality and encourage other men to do the same. Refrain from smoking, drinking, yelling, arguing, swearing. One day we will be equal to women!
I like how your first two points are a mockery of certain brands of feminism which focussed on political homosexuality
I mean I know youre supposed to be taking the piss out the MRM but it’s a pretty darn good satire of feminism
actually I’ve seen number three spread a hell of a lot
in short your point failed
actually my goal in writting this was to encourage MRA’s repeat every mistake that the feminist movements made. (and a side goal of stopping hetero-sex)
If you read it as a critique of feminism, then I guess I did something right.
I’d hate to imagine what you thought my ‘point’ was.
‹ Drapetomania ›
A mental illness causing African slaves to attempt escape, described in 1851 by physician Samuel Cartwright in his report “Diseases and Peculiarities of the Negro Race.” Not surprisingly, Cartwright prescribed whipping as the most beneficial treatment. One can’t help wondering what perspective the passing of time may give on the disorders diagnosed in our own era.
