"Misogyny is not a private matter! Hatred of women is not an opinion worth protecting! Rather, it is an entry drug into radicalized thinking and can result in the most severe violence and even killing people! Nevertheless, violence against women and girls in particular is still often played down, especially when misogyny takes place on a daily basis in digital space, in music and art, in the media, especially in advertising.
The police and the judiciary must therefore finally be put in a position through training to recognize gender-specific dimensions and incitement to hatred in individual cases.
Misogyny is turning into a pandemic. Insults like "pussy, cunt, bitch, whore, sexual assault and groping happens daily to all female people of all ages. It doesn't matter how they look or dress, they are female and therefore an object of hate from the start. Misogyny is compatible in a patriarchal society. It starts when Donald Trump gushes about grabbing women by the "pussy" and ends with actual, tangible sexual harassment in the subway. And that's not all, the media say every day sluts to violence victims who would have challenged a rapeor working women are wicked mothers, "quota women" - hate for everyone who wants equal pay for equal work, "chattering women and gossiping frigid lesbians are the hate names for everyone who expresses an opinion." To despise women, it takes there is nothing paranatural, no vaccination chips, no world conspiracy. Misogyny is allowed, everyday, is in our cultural DNA. Misogyny is all present and precisely for that reason underestimated. When men become radicalized, it often plays a crucial role. Women politicians receive more hate messages than is visible to outsiders. E-mails or Facebook messages come in with sentences like: “Has your brain got stuck in your pussy?” You have to see such comments for what they are: a threat to the political debate. In the past few decades, feminists have campaigned to make women visible. Science calls it the chilling effect when people are disgusted with aggressive comments.
My hope is that in the future, security authorities will statistically record all forms of misogynist violence and misogyny as a separate category - this ranges from threats of rape to domestic violence and femicides.
Sexual racism and sexual hate crimes must no longer be petty crimes in the future, but must be punished and prevented as what this misogyny is, crimes of the worst form since the dawn of mankind until today. There are no worse atrocities in the universe than the male crimes of men against women, girls and children, and there will never be more worse crimes ever.
It is important to recognize that even a small group of brave people can put an end to this misogyny forever, against the resistance of a misogynistic but cowardly mob. If we don't end this hatred soon, this hatred will end all of humanity! "

Visionary feminism is a wise and loving politics. It is rooted in the love of male and female being, refusing to privilege one over the other. The soul of feminist politics is the commitment to ending patriarchal domination of women and men, girls and boys. Love cannot exist in any relationship that is based on domination and coercion. Males cannot love themselves in patriarchal culture if their very self-definition relies on submission to patriarchal rules. When men embrace feminist thinking and preactice, which emphasizes the value of mutual growth and self-actualization in all relationships, their emotional well-being will be enhanced. A genuine feminist politics always brings us from bondage to freedom, from lovelessness to loving.”
― Bell Hooks

“... in practice the standard for what constitutes rape is set not at the level of women's experience of violation but just above the level of coercion acceptable to men.”
― Judith Lewis Herman

“No wonder male religious leaders so often say that humans were born in sin—because we were born to female creatures. Only by obeying the rules of the patriarchy can we be reborn through men. No wonder priests and ministers in skirts sprinkle imitation birth fluid over our heads, give us new names, and promise rebirth into everlasting life.”
― Gloria Steinem, The Vagina Monologues

“Being female in this world means having been robbed of the potential for human choice by men who love to hate us. One does does not make choices in freedom. Instead, one conforms in body type and behavior and values to become an object of male sexual desire, which requires an abandonment of a wide-ranging capacity for choice...
Men too make choices. When will they choose not to despise us?”
― Andrea Dworkin, Intercourse

“Men who are in prison for rape think it's the dumbest thing that ever happened... it's isn't just a miscarriage of justice; they were put in jail for something very little different from what most men do most of the time and call it sex. The only difference is they got caught. That view is nonremorseful and not rehabilitative. It may also be true. It seems to me that we have here a convergence between the rapists's view of what he has done and the victim's perspective on what was done to her. That is, for both, their ordinary experiences of heterosexual intercourse and the act of rape have something in common. Now this gets us into immense trouble, because that's exactly how judges and juries see it who refuse to convict men accused of rape. A rape victim has to prove that it was not intercourse. She has to show that there was force and that she resisted, because if there was sex, consent is inferred. Finders of fact look for "more force than usual during the preliminaries". Rape is defined by distinction from intercourse - not nonviolence, intercourse. They ask, does this event look more like fucking or like rape? But what is their standard for sex, and is this question asked from the women's point of view? The level of force is not adjudicated at her point of violation; it is adjudicated at the standard for the normal level of force. Who sets this standard?”
― Catharine A. MacKinnon

“Every woman knows what I'm talking about. It’s the presumption that makes it hard, at times, for any woman in any field; that keeps women from speaking up and from being heard when they dare; that crushes young women into silence by indicating, the way harassment on the street does, that this is not their world. It trains us in self-doubt and self-limitation just as it exercises men’s unsupported overconfidence.”
― Rebecca Solnit

“By [patriarchy] I mean to imply not simply the tracing of descent through the father, (...) but any kind of group organization in which males hold dominant power and determine what part females shall and shall not play, and in which capabilities assigned to women are relegated generally to the mystical and aesthetic and excluded from the practical and political realms. (...)
At the core of patriarchy is the individual family unit with its division of roles, its values of (...) unpaid domestic services of the wife, obedience to authority, judgment and punishment for disobedience, Within this family children learn the characters, sexual and otherwise, that they are to assume, in their turn, as adults. (...) The sacreness of the family in the patriarchy -sacred in the sense that it is heresy to question its ultimate value- relieves the titular head of it from any real necessity to justify his behavior.”
― Adrienne Rich, On Lies, Secrets, and Silence: Selected Prose, 1966-1978

“Women have participated in almost every fight for freedom. They were there when civilians were targeted they were there when the bombs were planted. To argue they didn't have enough power to speak up or they had been brainwashed by their male colleagues is to try to disassociate from the darkness that resides in everyone. And to disassociate from your darkness is to lose your power over it.”
― Jessa Crispin, Why I Am Not a Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto

“The accounts of rape, wife beating, forced childbearing, medical butchering, sex-motivated murder, forced prostitution, physical mutilation, sadistic psychological abuse, and other commonplaces of female experi
ence that are excavated from the past or given by contemporary survivors should leave the heart seared, the mind in anguish, the conscience in upheaval. But they do not. No matter how often these stories are told, with whatever clarity or eloquence, bitterness or sorrow, they might as well have been whispered in wind or written in sand: they disappear, as if they were nothing. The tellers and the stories are ignored or ridiculed, threatened back into silence or destroyed, and the experience of female suffering is buried in cultural invisibility and contempt… the very reality of abuse sustained by women, despite its overwhelming pervasiveness and constancy, is negated. It is negated in the transactions of everyday life, and it is negated in the history books, left out, and it is negated by those who claim to care about suffering but are blind to this suffering.
The problem, simply stated, is that one must believe in the existence of the person in order to recognize the authenticity of her suffering. Neither men nor women believe in the existence of women as significant beings. It is impossible to remember as real the suffering of someone who by definition has no legitimate claim to dignity or freedom, someone who is in fact viewed as some thing, an object or an absence. And if a woman, an individual woman multiplied by billions, does not believe in her own discrete existence and therefore cannot credit the authenticity of her own suffering, she is erased, canceled out, and the meaning of her life, whatever it is, whatever it might have been, is lost. This loss cannot be calculated or comprehended. It is vast and awful, and nothing will ever make up for it.”

“Male dominance in society always means that out of public sight, in the private, ahistorical world of men with women, men are sexually dominating women.”

They should be held accountable. I graduated from Auburn, and I am ashamed of how they are being. The public has a right to know. Other girls have a right to know.

Rape has been tolerated by the fraternities and universities for too long. Being transparent on current investigations is the least they can do. Our daughters deserve that.

It’s unacceptable that these campus organizations are not held accountable. Third parties need to be brought in to investigate, because the universities will do nothing but victim blame and gaslight. #EndRapeOnCampus
