hem so in a gentle and non threatening way. Power and sexuality does not fit together. Sexuality should emerge between equals not the powerful and the less powerful. This event cannot be used to silence the victims of powerful men ..it cannot be and should not be..its incompatible with a society where gender, identity and sexuality are not means of being powerful or indeed powerless...you cannot be a socialist or leftwinger if you use the power of masculinity over others to control them and use them...and there are no exceptions...and no reason to stop the exposure of those who use power over others to make others no more than objects.. .
When powerful men use power or authority to invade the body space of
women; children or less powerful others it's abuse. There are no
exceptions power should be out of the interaction. It's not too
difficult to ask the question. I like you and word like to get to know
you. Of course the question once asked should be on the basis of
equality and between adults As Damian Green us now finding out. It's
no accident that the domestication of animals; the invention if slavery
and the creation of the subjugation of
women occurred at the same time in history. The power of some men over
all others is a product of patriarchy . Gove"s joke; Harvey Weinstein
and Damian Green's alleged touching of a young activists knee are all
part of patriarchy. The alleged accusations arise from this position and
prejudice. Sexuality works between consenting adults of equal power.
There are no exceptions and as I look back over nearly 60 years I am
ashamed of attitudes that I have witnessed and had. My prejudices and
outlook over those years is horrified over the things I have seen , the
things I and others have said and the attitudes that all men have
assumed on the path to understanding of patriarchy. Men are stunted by
patriarchy and women , trans gendered people and the whole LGBTIQA
community oppressed by it. For us all to vanquish patriarchy it must be
challenged and replaced.....
