In the last 365 days Zeda has said the word ‘misogynistic’ 3643 times, about 10 times per day for a year.
Recently, Zeda went an entire day without saying the word ‘misogynistic’; which was nothing short of a miracle.
Was it laryngitis? Was she in a coma? Was she sleeping off a massive hangover from drinking ’til 6am? Did someone hypnotize her?
We had to find out.
“Misogyny is running rampant in our country. All men are sexist and benefit from the oppression of women at every moment of their lives” she told us. “but that particular day I was actually working on an essay for my gender studies class and confined myself to my dorm room, away from any distraction”.
Our curiosity could no longer be contained, we had to know what she was writing about. Thankfully, she was willing to share with us the essay she was working on that day:
“America was never great, especially for women. We have long endured the misogynistic paradigms which have enabled male dominance in our society. In fact, our culture has been extremely misogynistic since the conception of this country in the 18th century and has been prevalent in almost every society since the beginning of recorded history.
Misogynistic behaviorism has been carefully built into the architecture of human life, by men, to ensure their power over us. They cleverly normalize misogynistic behavior in order to quell any potential uprooting of said power by deeming the very opposition presented as anti-human. When women speak out against the patriarchy they’re always charged with the crime of hindering fecundity via allegations of deliberate abstinence or rejection of heterosexual intercourse.
This is not only misogynistic but demonstrates homophobic tendencies among cis-gendered males as well. Men attempt to discredit feminism by realigning its definition to be lesbianic and misandric, rather than its accurate interpretation; equality.
Misogynistic normality is thus preserved through this deliberate misconstruing of empirical data. Arguably this places the deconstruction of misogynistic infrastructure into the very hands of the misogynistic perpetrators.
In other words, the struggle of feminism becomes the fight to convince misogynistic men to destroy the power of misogynistic men.”
Well, there you have it folks, an incredible feat accomplished. Zeda, the feminist, miraculously went an entire day without SAYING the word ‘misogynistic’. 😉
