Catching Up

This post from Devin Lenda is a very brief summary of my politics.

It’s true that every dude benefits from patriarchy just as it’s true that every American benefits from empire but this doesn’t mean that every member of the dominant group is a net beneficiary.

Intersectionality is the message here. Think about the Iraqi dude who benefits from the patriarchy but is getting destroyed by Empire. Feminism is to patriarchy as anarchism is to empire. I won’t quote the next few sentences – I’d be reproducing the whole thing – but the last one is the kicker.
