Because you have to go through all the red ones. The reason the kyriarchy it's assumed to exist is because all the red ones exist affecting everybody (depending on sex, physonomy, language, procedence, personality, sexual orientation, beauty, economic class, whatever).The kyriarchy is that
, not some mysterious super-entity. Or at least that's how I understand it. In the end the word might just be short for a list of all of that. The idea is that people don't exist on isolated groups of oppressed and oppressors, and that people aren't "oppressors" by merely existing.
On the subject of "feminism". I know people are put off that something supposedly positive has the name of "one side". I don't really care about that. I do notice that feminism seems to include quite a few different things and it's confusing. I consider myself a feminist, but some "other feminists " and sexist people are very annoying to me.
I have been thinking on what women tell me about feeling constantly stared at by men (normally in the form of blank creepy stares). The way some of the put it, it almost sounds like a constant persecution. I am trying to understand the exact reason for the apparent unbalance of this phenomenon. Why do men look at women? Do women not look at men the same way, and if they do, do men not notice it or react differently? Why? And how would this go in an environment composed of women attracted to women and one of men attracted to men? What's the separate influence of the individual, of hormones and of culture on this whole thing?
So far I can only reexamine my own doing, and I'll describe it because I feel it's probably just the same for a lot of people regardless of sex (although I might be wrong about that, but who knows). I do notice a lot the appearance of women around me. If I'm in a bus or something and I feel very attracted to someone I can't help to try some quick shy peek to at her without being noticed (normally I feel a slight blush and I'm unsettled by the idea of being caught), and then that's it. In other occasions, I noticed I was looking at people almost subconsciously while thinking on whatever (my mind drifts a lot), certainly not on the people I was looking at. Normally I try to to avoid eye contact with people I'm not interacting with in public settings, focusing on random inofensive things. I don't think a simplistic and somewhat nonsensical "men have a greater natural tendency to look at what they are attracted to" explains this whole thing.
Sorry for the long boring post
