FABB meeting 10/29/11

Agenda
-Class stuff (pg 37 & next 2 chapters)
-Feminist Masculinity (pg 67)
-Sexuality (?maybe?)

I. CLASS
-divided power feminism/ vision of true feminism
->changing the system itself
-> ultimately this is the only way to go
-> people also confuse prejudiced speech with racism : hurt feelings/institutional force
-There have been women who've hired other women and worked within the system and found a way to have a mutually beneficial, consensual relationship.
-does her [hooks] restructuring include keeping a capaitalist system?
-> BUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!?!??!
-> radical leftist deconstructed state? equalized socialism?
- Can we change the system if we all conciously change the way we relate to one another?
->people might be inclined to try different systems because the one we've got going right now is FUCKED
-> we can break down the system by breaking down the ways we oppress one another. (like internalized patriarchy)
-if we morphed out of patriarchy, everything would have to be run on a local scale
- also dismantle right/wrong dichotomies

-whats up with how movies don't show long term personal struggle????
