Like colonialism and race, gender plays an enormous role in the social and material conditions of this society. It is an oppressive system that is deeply intertwined with capitalism, but cannot be reduced to merely a manifestation of capitalism. If we are against oppressive systems, we must strive to make gender oppression central to our analysis and struggles. And yet, most insurrectionists again will complain of feminism’s “identity politics.” Historical and material conditions must necessarily guide us at least somewhat as we seek strategies to end oppression, and those IA-identified folks who refuse to respect those who are oppressed as women/gender-nonconforming folks to struggle against sexism are abjectly and transparently reactionary.
Same guy, rebutting an insurrectionary anarchist with… well, not-exclusively-insurrectionist anarchism.
