Kia ora koutou katoa,

We invite womyn-identified anarcha-feminists and supporters to join us over Easter weekend (10-13 April) in lovely Swanson, Auckland. The conference will include workshops, skill shares, and discussions relevant to anarcha-feminism. It'll be a chance to network with other a-fems, learn, talk, and have fun. Please forward the attached poster to womyn you think would be interested.

NB We are also hoping to have some travel equalisation funds available for those who have to travel a long distance.

Please send your completed registration form to feministmafia@gmail.com before 3rd of April.

We look forward to seeing you at Easter!

Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

It's spelt women.

Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

That's not radical enough!

Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

wow! you're both anglo-centric and authoritarian. And you obviously have no appreciation of or a negative view of this spelling. Guess we wont be seeing you there then.
neat huh?

Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

Why would I have any appreciation for someone who can't spell 'Women' ?

And I'm tempted to turn up. That way I could easily prove that men are better than women. It's really simple logic, really. How many women have invtented stuff?

What? Barely any? STFU.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

So i guess only white men invented stuff too?
You miss the point I was making about the spelling because you are too arrogant and ignorant to consider anything other than what establishment has spoon fed your tiny brain, and possibly the psuedo rebellion of a faux-hawk.
You are part of the problem.
Don´t make idle threats, show up.
Show us your ¨logic¨.
I have no doubt you could prove something.
And by the way ¨better than¨ is a value judgment, i.e. it is subjective, if you can ¨ëasily prove¨ your statement....but then youŕe not coming, are you.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

So someone points out that you're wrong, and then you start insulting them? Wow, L2debate.

Either way, no, I'm sure black men invented stuff two. Point in fact though: That's not what I'm talking about. And since you failed to provide any infomation on Women who invtented stuff, then I guess that shows that you should STFU, once again.

I can't 'show' logic, I don't plan on drawing a picture for you all.

'consider anything other than what establishment has spoon fed your tiny brain,'

And you fail to consider the fact that because there's an establishment there's a chance that they're RIGHT. Not everything that happens in the world is WRONG because pot smoking unwashed hippies who eat out of Rubbish bins dis-agree with it. Open your own eyes, move away from your little cliche and start to think more.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

what's wrong with pot-smoking, unwashed hippies that eat out of rubbish bins? at least we're not all wearing business suits walking up queen st wearing our 'holier than thou' persona

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April

Yeeeah. Because there's no middle ground. IT ain't hard to get a fucking job and stop bludging off the government. Maybe stop the drugs.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui Ap

Most men haven't invented anything - does this mean they are inferior? I haven't invented anything myself, unless you count the peanut butter and horseradish cream sandwich, does this mean I should shut up?

"How many women have invtented [sic] stuff"
Oh yes, stuff - what the world really needs. Thank you, Roger. We couldn't do business without it.

Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

great another separatist event in the name of freedom and *sic* equality. yes feminism is wicked, but what you are all creating here are even more outcasts. anarchists have enough trouble as it is being accepted without organizing this womyn-identified only event.

i overheard a conversation once between an a-fem and a male activist who wanted to create a men only event because of the sexist attitudes of womyn in the community, ended with the male being accused of thinking like a caveman.

sexism goes both ways... i have seen way more sexism coming from 'womyn' in the community than anarchist males toward females.

Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

everytime an a-fem hui is proposed there is always backlash from men. pretty much the reason why there needs to be a-fem hui!!! i wont be there - i don't identify as a woman. .. but i hope it goes well. peace

Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

Ignore the male trolls — an event like this threatens them. The fallacy of seperatism is usually thrown up without any thought of why women need to organise a women-only event...

Good luck and solidarity from Otautahi.

Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

Let's organize a Men only event then?

Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

There was talk of this last year, to deal with male sexism in the movement. Not sure if it's going to happen soon, but I'd be keen.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

So get all the Men together, to deal with Men being sexist? What are you, retarded? Nice logic though. Let's give the women a thing that's all smiles and cupcakes. Then let's go and cry about how us men are too hard on Women.

Christ, Grow up. Go paint some more buildings and get arrested more.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

so this mens only event, ideas?

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

1st of April, Palmerston North, meet up at Burger King.

Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

I think a meeting of pro feminist men from different areas, for the purpose of encouraging pro feminist organisation and action is a good idea.
I DON'T think this is the appropriate thread to be discussing it.

Why are so many men commenting on this thread?

Re: Re: Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui April 09

Because having something for Women-only is fucking sexist.
