Indonesia Feminist Theory and Practices


June 5, 2008



Since long time I consider myself fundamentalist feminist. There is no such feminist in feminism theory. Somehow, I proclaimed it. It was because I use feminism as my view of everyday life. For me fundamentalist feminist is a combination of radical feminist in context, believe in sexual inequality persist and use it as perspective of my mind and to direct act in daily life.

Fundamentalist feminist as well radical feminist never hate male. Most of them disagree with male act as men. When male became man (gender role), they comfort in the role and forget other creature (female). In their comfort zone (patriarchy), male do not want to change the status quo (of women is subordinate, men in power and in advantage).

To be a fundamentalist feminist is only needs determination and loyalty. The determination is to continue struggle for change a patriarchy system into an equal joint-mutual community in the World. To be a fundamentalist feminist you have to be ready to be accused as not fair, “sexist”, un-strategic, due to way of persistence to be on female side, encourage female to be leader, and dare to create women’s space for their affirmation action in many parts of the life.

There is a simple way to put this into act. Try not judge woman over their ‘badness’, do not stop women to develop, etc…If you have a dream, share your dream with women, let’s make them investing to make your dream come true even in very small way.

PENIS CONSPIRACY, how it works

Penis Conspiracy is subsconsciouness acts of males all over the world to keep males happy, have benefit (of pleasure and wealth), and hold control of power.
To pleasure and happiness
Penis Conspiracy acts are way to keep male happy by many efforts to make the penis strong, can always perform (erect) and have an ultimate pleasure of sex, orgasm. These acts not always driven or stimulate by desire to females, but by design to keep females desirable (subordinate) to males. With this, female have to be creature to make males happy and have pleasure.
On what can constitute effort to make the penis strong and always performs are can be seen at the invention of Viagra, industry of supplement for male (Obat Kuat) and supplement beverage. The other effort is industrialization of traditional medicine to manufacture old value of sexual power of males and machoism.
And to keep females desirable, all concepts of beauty, sensuality, and sexuality of males are too carried out through beauty pageant industry, cosmetic industry and the ultimate is pornographic.
Male have benefit of wealth through capitalistic of the world. All over the world males have always been the have, the owner. Males own property. It was only until 19 century female in England can have property (family wealth or inheritance).
Control of Power
Human, females and males have stratification of class and races. Because of their class and race males or female have experience oppressed. Since ancient Rome and Greek males and female have been subjugate as slave. But somehow, it was male slave who could free themselves and become freeman.
From all faces of the oppression, male who have the power over other male can act direct action to pay up the guilt by hand over the power to the oppressed. That happened to be in South Africa where the White male then power hand over to black male.
Now it is going to happen in USA. Males guilt on their racist policy of segregation and the exclusion of black in many institution, as part of ‘sin’ of white males. Now even hundreds years after aabolitionist, that mostly support by white women in 18 century, still women have not been seen as the oppressed to deserve what she worth.
The different between the and 1960s and the 2000s, in the 1960s women in USA have not yet in position of decision making, now there are many women (white & black) in position of Governors, Senate etc. But there is not yet male from black (the oppressed) to be in position as President. And for males, it is a time for black president; after all, he’s half white.
Even in single and simple act like to choose and vote a person leader, women do not have capability to be on her-side. The cloud of theories, comment, and ideology have blurred women (academic) in seeing other woman—what they see is no longer a woman, but a form of an act, and ambition, persistence or power—of which they are never seen in a man (they surrender before the Primaries). Because of the cloud on how media (if you aware, the true enemy of women is Media: television, internet, newspaper—have succeed in exploit women) built, she was have not reach what many women expected.
Since I think, American is conservative (hell! Bush have been chosen twice), how come Obama (who was Muslim and have connection with Farrakhan and Pastor Wright he’s electability is in question. But because Democratic Party (males) do not constitute ‘the conservatives’ they choose Obama.
For males who might think that my theory is not true, is okay. But the reality is how many woman presidents in hundreds of countries in the World? Can you imagine in your head, there are six presidential candidates, 5 are women, 1 man? Can you?
Catherine MacKinnon has said sexism exist, sexual inequality persist. Racism becomes stronger issue, because it is including male (against male).
