RADFEMS RESPOND – Public Dialogue – Portland, OR: Saturday May 24th

It might be helpful for everyone in the debate if the organisers clarify what they mean by “gender”, as it seems that people on all sides of the argument understand it to be something different.

Fwiw, I would describe gender as whether your brain is more male or female, and sex refers to your body in the same way, and your gender identity is where you see yourself in relation to the two. I’m not talking about societal (spelling?) expectations on our sex / gender / expression etc, but how we see ourselves in relation to other people in the world (I hope I’ve explained that simply enough so there’s no confusion over what I mean).

Hey social justice activists!

Are internet flamewars bumming you out?

Do interactions on social media sometimes make you feel like you’ve entered a fighting pit?

We’re tired of the lightless heat, too. That’s why Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) has arranged for a public dialogue on two of the most controversial issues facing modern feminism, abolishing prostitution and ending gender.

On Saturday May 24 we will honor Memorial Day weekend with a political ceasefire and call for the opening of peace talks. In the spirit of honest, respectful engagement, you are invited to come ask radical feminists any questions on these subjects you may have wanted to ask but were too intimidated by rancorous internet interactions.

Please join us for what will be a thought-provoking day for everyone who wants clarification on what radical feminists really think about prostitution and gender.
