After i wrote my last post i received a couple of well written comments. One of the comments indicated that Third Wave Feminism is more a a cobbling of different agendas rather then a true next gen feminism movement. Most of the agendas are basically from the Transgender community. And i have to admit the commenter was right. In a number of feminist blogs, twitter feeds, and tumblrs i have seen an increasing about of verbiage and descriptions from the so called ‘gender fluid’ community. For those of you who are scratching your heads there is a movement on the internet that has picked up steam into the real world, the people behind that movement literally want to wipe the concrete foundations of gender. No more he or she, just non-gender nouns and pronouns. Really ludicrous stuff in my opinion.
So what does this mean. Basically it means the third wave movement may be getting slowly taken over or already has been taken over by these people. Whats so funny is that I’ve heard rumblings by a number of feminists who are against the idea of transgenders and gender fluid/queer types pushing into the movement. Basically they believe the feminist movement is for women not people who decide to remain genderless, attempt to change their genders via surgery, or simply mentally change their genders on a whim.
Still though a part of me sees these agendas as dangerous and harmful to women ultimately. Just my couple of cents for the moment.
