ARE YOU A MANARCHIST? QUESTIONNAIRE
Authored by anonymous anarcha-feminists in Philadelphia, this list of
questions is designed to get those socialized as men thinking about the
role patriarchy plays in their everyday lives. If, as a “man,” you feel yourself
getting incredibly defensive, take a deep breath and keep reading–
breaking the manacles has begun!
SHUT THE FUCK UP, or
HOW TO ACT BETTER IN MEETINGS
By Dan Spalding
An open letter to “men” in the movement, designed to give men the practical
skills needed to step back and make space for women in activist circles.
Take heed and shut the fuck up—it may very well be the most radical
thing you can do!
GOING TO PLACES THAT SCARE ME:
Personal Reflections on Challenging Male Supremacy
By Chris Crass
Crass takes his own life experience and applies it to the analysis provided
to him by radical women he has known and learned from. A perfect exercise
for anyone raised as male to emulate.
JUST ASK A WOMAN
By Traci Harris
Feeling pretty good about yourself for being an out and about ally to gender
oppressed peoples? Harris offers a timely reminder about what outing
the inner manarchist is really all about.
STICK IT TO THE MANARCHY
By the Rock Bloc Collective
An essential critique which launched an essential debate. Aggressive, holier
than thou, elitist, macho? Odds are you’re a manarchist! Followed up
by a response from the authors to various criticisms. An excellent example
of what tactical critique is all about, and how it can strengthen movements
for social change.
