The other day on twitter a woman I follow shared the resolution the New Turns Feminism Conference passed to no-platform feminist writer and activist Julie Bindel. In the resolution she was referred to as “vile”. Now this is immediately not a professional or appropriate way to refer to a woman, regardless of how you feel about her. It smacks of personal bias and not a legitimate excuse for no-platforming someone. The same woman looked up the definition of vile and shared with us that one of the definitions for it was “disagreeable”. How interesting!
Because yes, she is disagreeable to quite a few persons out there. But being disagreeable is what feminism is about. A disagreeable woman is a good thing. That is unless of course you believe that it is a woman’s job to be agreeable. This my dear readers is what I’d like to tackle today.
