Are you capable of rational thought, above the level of denunciation, buzzwords, and reverse sexism?

If so, tell me why the article is wrong.

I'm an anarchist, which means I'm opposed to all forms of domination. That includes race, gender, etc. Workerist socialism simply doesn't address soo much of the domination that exists. Patriarchy is as insidious a hierarchy as capitalism, treating it as a minor issue is ignorant as fuck.

Not to mention the shit like this:

Neither the African and Asian nations that liberated themselves from colonialist oppression nor the USSR and Eastern Bloc states nor the left-wing movements that sprung up across Latin America in the early 21st century had any time to play identity politics.

You really want to look at the regimes that jailed & killed anarchists and minorities for guidance? Give me a fucking break. We should be doing everything we can to distance ourselves from those shitholes, not idolize their disregard for the oppressed.

According to anarchism, oppression is still oppression when you do it backwards. "Brocialism" is dismissing something based on the (perceived) gender of the speaker rather than the content of what's said. It belongs in the same dustbin as "feminazi" and "Jewish science" and all the other irrelevant ad hominem attacks on incidental features of the speaker.

your gender doesn't make you a brocialist, your brocialism does

"Brocialism and manarchism are umbrella terms for sexists within the radical left. Specifically used for those who believe that the creation of a socialist, Marxist, or anarchist system will inevitably bring about gender equality and that therefore no measures need to be taken other than the destruction of the hierarchy imposed by class."

When did I say this?

"Brocialism is the political, social, and economic ideology of those who claim to have Socialist or Communist leanings, but whose behaviour or beliefs are hypocritically sexist. A brocialist will probably even claim to be a feminist, and actively supportive of women's equality, sometimes in the same moment that they treat women like dirt."

At what point have I treated women like dirt?
