I don't think its statism. Its "collectivism." There are plenty of female anarchists.
Well, I chose to use that word to describe what I see as the problem: not that women are collectivist socially and of their own free will, but that they nowadays turn to the government and try to be collectivist in that manner, as if the government specifically should protect women. THe government specifically should encourage that they have day cares and that sort of thing.
Anarchists actually make a concerted effort to confront the sexism which is embedded so deeply in our society. We practice feminist principles and work towards women's liberation.
Women ARE liberated. We are just as liberated as men are as we are individual human beings. Nowadays, however, the feminist movement is less directed towards insuring that women are seen as capable, responsible, individuals and more into insuring that for every male CEO there is a female CEO and they use government legislation to make this happen.
Quite frankly, I don't think that society is filled with sexism, the belief that one sex is better than the other, unless it be the idea that women are better than men. There is a LOT of man-hating that goes on nowadays. Case in point: "Boys are stupid, throw rocks at them" T-shirts.
There is also a lack of women gun owners. Is there a correlation? I believe so
So do I. One of my neighbors recently left her abusive boyfriend and while we were discusisng changing the locks, nailing down the windows, etc, I made the suggestion that she get a gun and get trained and licensed to use it (also noting how long it took the police to get there when he was choking her and how long it would take them to get there if tried breaking in) but the basic idea was that there is no way that would work and it was too dangerous...Bull.
It's definitely one of my goals to get training and experieince in the use of firearms and, when I can afford it, to buy a handgun. I figure we have that second ammendment there for a reason. Might as well use it
