Another solid episode of Honey Badger Radio with the usual contributors – Della Burton, Karen Straughan (GirlWritesWhat), and Alison Tieman (Typhon Blue):
It’s lengthy (118 minutes) but well worth listening to in full, if you can spare the time. This is one programme I always listen to in full. Erin Pizzey joins the discussion (21:56 – 52:46) and makes a strong contribution. If you’re pushed for time, try to catch at least the Introduction by Della Burton (0:00 – 7:36).
Between 52:45 – 57:08 one of the ladies narrates the Introduction of the third edition (2008) of a book first published in 1971, Esther Vilar’s The Manipulated Man. It’s a book we recommend highly ourselves:
The Honey Badgers’ introduction to the episode:
‘Are the Vaginas in the house?’ Eve Elsner screams to a cheering audience of feminists. Yep. All us women? We’re just vaginas. And that’s all that we are.
You know who else reduces women down to their genitals? Pimps. Specifically pimps reduce women down to what the pimp can extract in terms of benefit from their vaginas. Sorta like feminists. Except for feminists it’s not the vagina’s use that’s of interest, but it’s abuse. And whatever can be twisted into abuse of vaginas.
Make no mistake, like the pimp, all they care about is your vagina. If you didn’t have a vagina, they wouldn’t really care what happened to you. You’re a whore in their stable, pimped out for their benefit. And if you refuse to be feminism’s whore, watch out for their pimp hand! The instant you say no, you’ll see just how deep sisterhood goes.
