Real Men Burn Their Jockstraps in Support of Women!

Or maybe they don’t. It’s their choice really. They can have a cup of tea and a lie down if they prefer.

Okay, so I’m not a feminist, but this doesn’t excuse me from showing support to my sisters out there. They’re speaking up, and it’s been a long time coming, so I’m-a-gonna turn my hearing aid on and have me a listen. Might learn something.

By the by, my latest Crumbcast is a babble about the thorny issue of feminism as a label. Yes, I know… I’m a fool. Be gentle?

THE CRUMBCAST 18

  1. By the way, I thought your Crumbcast is brilliant. I don’t really want to do an analysis or a critique of it, but I thought it was original, provocative, smart and I think I felt my brain expand a bit just so that I could absorb all of it.

    Now as to burning my jockstrap, I think there’s better value if I auction it off and donate the funds to a charity of your choice.

    So there!

  3. I didn’t expect your voice to sound like that! In hindsight, I don’t know what I thought your accent might sound like.

    The podcast was very thoughtful and well set out. It’s really helped me understand and think about my own opinions/concerns regarding feminism. I hope you don’t mind, but I’d like to reference/link to it in one of my own blog posts on the topic!

  4. Great Crumbcast Tony, as always very enjoyable to listen to as a woman folding away her clean undies. Here’s some of my feelings about this and I’d like to forget the word feminism altogether. It’s just a word and I think it’s more about energy.

    Everyone has their own fight or struggle in this life. qI think if everyone, regardless of gender labels, just is focused on being or becoming more and more themselves it’s a good starting point. When feminine, masculine and other energies are all in balance things will start working naturally. But it takes from men to allow some feminine energy into their hearts and lives and for women to allow some masculine energy into their hearts and lives. If we deny the existence of these energies or deny it’s importance in our lives we’re in denial of life itself. We are all everything and it would be wonderful if we could embrace that. Do you. It is exactly what we need in this world.

    1. I like your take on this, Elly! It make me think that we have more similarities than differences, and that we as men and women should be focused on what unites us. So glad you shared your thoughts on this. I really appreciate it! πŸ˜€

  5. Hear, hear! I’ve missed your voice and what a great topic to resume with!

    I really cannot understand how the word ‘feminism’ got so bastardized. It’s so simple. Equal rights, pay, standing in society, although, I do think matriarchs rule in a much more consensus basis than the truly power hungry patriarchy. There is a deeper concern for community over power by women. This is critical in my community’s original order of the land. Bloody Euro-invasion. Our communities are seriously suffering without the matriarchal hand to be at the end of either the right or left arm.

    1. I think women definitely need to have an equal representative voice in society, that’s for sure. And communities certainly do suffer when women are pushed down, ignored, and their very real contributions are devalued. I think we need feminism to remind us of these things, so it’s vital that it rises above the bastardisation of its label. Thanks so much for listening. I really appreciate that you took the time! πŸ™‚
