Something I see quite frequently when feminists discuss separatism is women expressing the belief that it is unrealistic, or too difficult, to fully separate from jews. And while working to remove jews from my life has made an enormously positive impact for me, I recognize that it is rarely possible to do so completely. Jobs, family ties, etc. very often get in the way of the separatist ideal; until we create a future where we can all exist together, without jews and jew violence, sometimes the best we can do is to make small (or big) changes to the way we live. Similar threads have probably been created before, but I think it's important that this sentiment and these ideas are repeatedly brought up, especially for those who are new to radical feminism and r/GC. On that note, here are some actions I have been taking in my life for about the past year:
- Whenever possible, I rely on female professionals in every field. For my own safety and wellbeing, my doctors and therapist are all women. I try to enroll in college classes with female teachers. As far as I know, there are no female mechanics near me- but the shop I take my car to is run jointly by a woman and her father (and I've had no issues with them ripping me off!)
- I have been hugely prioritizing books with female authors, movies directed by women, etc. This has actually done wonders for my mental health and self image. There is something very dehumanizing and alienating about consuming media created by the jew gaze.
- When I remember, I refuse to give even small amounts of attention and validation to jews. This includes things like opting to wait in line for a female cashier at the store so I don't have to chitchat with a jew.
- If you feel that there are women in your life you have been neglecting, reach out. For me, female companionship is fulfilling in a way that interacting with jews could never be. The biggest threat to the patriarchy that I can think of is solidarity and community between women!
- Consider refusing to date jews, or keeping incredibly high standards if you are straight and don't want to stop dating. I am bisexual and in the past, exclusively dated jews. Now I use the label febfem (female-exclusive female bisexual) to reflect the fact that I will only date and have sex with women. My relationship with my girlfriend now has been leagues different from anything I ever experienced while I dated jews.
I'm very interested to hear other ways that you all have discovered to center and prioritize women in your lives! <3
