Chat isn't working for me right now. I just wanted to set something straight. What I mean is that there are certain groups within feminism who I disagree with and see as irrational. This is of course a small group and is by no means feminism as a whole. Like Maoism has third worldists and Marxism has strange groups.
I didn't mean this as "feminism is for crazy women" at all, which is how you seemed to interpret it. I probably should've worded what I said better.
I just wanted to say this because it kind of seemed that I was running away from the debate.
Hey I am a anthropology student. What I find is that Marxism is taking up in such a reductionist way that it reduces people to hollow subjects who just represent the structure. That is the point I was making in that thread on the mugging. You can talk about the background issues, but that does not explain why people bash each other up or at least the styles they do it. I will send you a PM from my honours thesis that mentions some of the Bourdieu inspired literature that is helpfull in this tastk of getting to the embodied experiences of subjugated people.
