Tangenting about trail running. The critters I saw and almost busting my face.
And then . . .
I continue reading an interview with Delia LaJeunesse.
Delia is a femistatist who has no idea that her ideology and rabid belief in the State and democracy coupled with her fear (I’m using the femistatists tactic of accusing anyone who has a differing world view that I do of “fear” in order to avoid logic and shift the discussion to emotions) of capitalism and heterosexual white men with jobs who have provided her with running water, electricity, iPhones and paper to print her femistatist nonsense is the problem – not the solution.
I didn’t comment on this in the podcast but on retrospect I think it’s safe to conclude that Delia isn’t evil so much as she is lied to. She recently got out of college where her mind was filled with bullshit. It’s not like she inventing femistatism. And she doesn’t have the life experience needed to realize she has been lied to.
Question is – when she is 35 years old and unhappy will she realize that femistatism is why she is unhappy or will she continue to blame capitalism and white men?

I found her Linkedin profile where we discover her real world qualifications which give her the knowledge base to critique capitalism and white men. Did you know that by linking to her Linkedin profile – which is public – I am guilty of rape according to feminists?

At the Denver Art Society I managed volunteers rewrote membership agreements, informational pamphlets and the mission statement, and promoted events to local news outlets and businesses.
Where There Be Dragons
I worked as an intern in the admissions and marketing departments of this cultural immersion program which entailed answering phones, coordinating between students, instructors, families and administration, and organizing files and paperwork. This company focuses on sustaining cultures and ecosystems, setting students up to work through some of the largest defining issues of our time from a humanities perspective. The staff was highly dynamic and animated and taught me both how to work with strong personalities and retain my own sense of character and individuality.
And the mission statement of Coin-Op:
Coin-Op is a feminist zine and creative platform for a community of critical, artistic and questioning individuals. We strive to present diverse perspectives and experiences within the realm of feminism. This zine aims to ask deeper and harder questions of it’s audience that make each of us take responsibility for privilege, recognize our communal wounds and search for the places we can find healing among us. As a product of Stain’d Publishing, Coin-Op is designed to open up the conversation for how we can all show up better in our lives, be more genuine, responsive and endlessly curious.
Quotes from the interview which appear in this episode:
I think at its core it’s a critique of capitalism—this frustration and feeling that a lot of people aren’t awake, they aren’t paying attention — that we’re coin-operated, and that we’re totally driven by money. We’re so embedded in capitalism that we have stopped seeing ourselves, one another, and the shit that we’ve been doing.
Like killing people with flying robots. How do we not see that happening? Oh yea, because Obama is black. Well, half-black.
Really, even very conscious people are still driven by money because we have very few options in this world.
Yes. Because if you want things from other people (and you do) you have to either take things from them (taxes) or create value for other people in exchange. That’s called money.
I really do think it has a lot to do with the fact that most of my community happens to be men.
Translation: I surround myself with white knight femisymp beta males because I crave attention. When other women are around no one notices me.
