  • Question: Would you call yourself a feminist or an equal rights activist? Is there any reason you'd choose one over the other? I got into a debate with a friend and grew curious, since you're the most vocal feminist lady I follow. Also, hi! - iseekum
  • Answer:

    gailsimone:

    The whole problem with this kind of question is that to answer it, I have to accept a definition of feminism that I don’t agree with, that isn’t reality-based at all. 

    This is what the passive aggressive types and the anti-feminists always want, they want you to acknowledge the warped, nonsensical viewpoint they have, because it validates them, it coddles them. It’s nothing I choose to take part in, I just think it’s goofy.

    There are legitimate things in the history of feminism that are shameful, but those things are not what these people are complaining about. They are complaining about a minority opinion so minute as to barely exist at all. 

    Men don’t like it when all men are judged by a minority of jerks, neither do women, neither do feminists. 

    What the vast majority of feminists want is fair treatment and equal opportunity, but that is such a universally understandable goal that huge numbers of creeps have spend untold resources trying to make it about every other possible permutation. Responding at all might be a little more than such attempts deserve, but every once in a while, you have to clean the damn catbox or the stink gets unbearable.

"Dambe uses only the dominant hand to strike, while the ‘weaker’ hand is extended toward the opponent and used to ward off blows. Hence, the lead hand represents a shield. In fact, the dominant hand is referred to as ‘spear,’ while the other is labeled the ‘shield.’ (This shield and spear aspect is literal rather than figurative in damben karfe, with its iron-armed striking hand and glove-like shield (matashi) held in the warding hand.) Grasping and grappling is used to permit a strike with the more powerful hand, which in turn may represent what one does when one’s shield is broken. In addition, Dambe competitions are held between groups (‘armies’) who meet in dueling pairs on a symbolic battlefield, and the metaphor of warfare is apparent in the continuing use of the term ‘killing’ to signify the strike that leads to winning a match."

"Traditionally, the lead leg (the left in the case of  a right-handed boxer) was wrapped by a chain extending from ankle to knee. Known as akayau, this could be used as a weapon when kicking. Nonetheless, kicks could be executed with either foot.  Although the use of the akayau has been abandoned in contemporary Dambe boxing, Carambe notes that there is still a preferred kicking leg that is often wrapped in cloth for protection."

"The goal in Dambe is to deliver a single ‘fatal’ blow (kwab daya), meaning one that causes the opponent’s hand or knee to touch the ground (or, even better, knocks him flat to the ground). In keeping with the idea of a ‘fatal’ blow, this latter is called ‘killing’ the opponent (Abubakar). The concept of the single ‘killing’ blow that ‘has been maintained in all forms of modern Dambe and [is one of the elements that] makes the art distinct from western boxing’"
