Why Does Lesbian @SaraAlcid Want to Help More Women Kill Their Babies?

Posted on | August 12, 2013 | 439 Comments

It isn’t every day that a “Queer Feminist” with a diploma from Bryn Mawr (undergraduate tuition $42,870 a year) decides she needs my attention, but I’m so grateful for Miss Alcid’s encouragement to expand on what I said this morning:

“Professor Aptheker is exactly right: If you want to be a
true feminist, you must be a Communist lesbian.”

The inherent radicalism of the women’s movement — its theoretical foundation in Marxism, its implacable antagonism to traditional marriage and other institutions of bourgeois society — is not generally understood outside such campus cauldrons as Bryn Mawr.

Feminism is a totalitarian ideology. It cannot be co-opted or moderated. You cannot negotiate or compromise with feminism, because the ambitions of feminism are without limit. They can accept nothing short of the complete overthrow of “hitherto existing society” (Marx and Engels) resulting in their own dictatorial authority. Halfway “reform” (to which the bourgeoisie may agree in its attempt to stave off this upheaval) can never placate the revolutionary, because the radical does not seek reform, but rather destruction. And the problem that most conservatives have, in trying to cope with radical movements, is that the typical conservative cannot imagine how fanatical — how rigidly unreasonable, how full of passionate destructive hatefulness — the radical really is. Notice how Sara Alcid illustrated her Valentine’s Day article:

“Heteronormativity and gender roles also rear their ugly heads on Valentine’s Day. Gifts for ‘him’ or ‘her’ are clearly divided and marked and it’s almost impossible to find cards that represent queer couples. . . .
“It’s not hard to see why Valentine’s Day is problematic for many feminists. Celebrated traditionally, Valentine’s Day magnifies many of the very systems of domination that we work to critique and dismantle.”

Sara Alcid, “Valentine’s Day: What’s A Feminist To Do?”, Feb. 14, 2013

What does Sara Alcid mean by “patriarchy”? Well, if you live in a normal family — husband, wife, children — she means you.

Sara Alcid wants to smash your family, smash your faith, smash your community. This is what she means in denouncing “heteronormativity and gender roles” and “systems of domination.”

Sara Alcid hates you, she hates every institution you cherish and respect, and she considers your love for these institutions to be hate.

Sara Alcid believes this because she has been taught this. The fact that you cannot afford $42,870 a year to learn to think like Sara Alcid thinks is further proof of your inferiority, and your inferiority in turn justifies Sara Alcid‘s fanatical determination to destroy everything you love — in the name of “liberation,” of course.

This is Sarah Alcid with her radical lesbian heroine, acclaimed “queer theory” feminist Judith Butler, a notorious enemy of Israel:

Butler has devoted much of her academic career to the struggle to eliminate the state of Israel.  . . .
Butler denounces Israel’s “arbitrary state violence” and “state racism.” She has been a leader in the campaign to impose a worldwide boycott against Israeli universities. . . .
In February 2010, Butler went to the West Bank to demonstrate against the alleged mistreatment of women by Zionist “occupiers.” She denounced Israel at length for its “mistreatment” of Arab women.

This is not coincidental: Israel is America’s ally and because Judith Butler hates America, she must hate Israel, too. Because feminism!

Why does Sara Alcid love Israel-hater Judith Butler? Because Bryn Mawr taught her to love Judith Butler:

Preeminent gender theorist and philosopher Judith Butler holds the 2011 Mary Flexner Lectureship at Bryn Mawr College, joining the ranks of some of the world’s most influential humanists in presenting significant new work at Bryn Mawr.
During her three-week residency in November, Butler is giving a series of three public lectures titled Bodies in Alliance, the first presentation of new work by Butler that is to be published by Harvard University Press. Bryn Mawr faculty members and graduate students join Butler to discuss each lecture after it is presented. Butler has also visited class meetings of five undergraduate courses that incorporate Butler’s work and are being offered in conjunction with the lecture series this fall. Other activities associated with the Flexner Lecture Series include a film series, several informal opportunities for students to meet and talk with Butler, and “Preoccupations: Looking at Pictures with Judith Butler,” a colloquium sponsored by the College’s Center for Visual Culture.

Sarah Alcid wrote 12 articles about Judith Butler’s lectureship, including one entitled, “Judith Butler: A Superstar at Bryn Mawr“:

A flurry of extended excitement could be detected at Bryn Mawr from the moment Judith Butler’s Mary Flexner Lectureship was announced until many students had their parting words with the scholar at the book signing on November 21st. I shared this excitement with my peers and think it is certainly a testament to the intellectual curiosity and passion that makes the Bryn Mawr student body so unique. . . .
As one of the student coordinators and attendees of the “Coffee Hour with Judith Butler” and “Conversations with Judith Butler” dinner events, I was fortunate enough to witness the humorous and down-to-earth sides of the scholar we mostly associate with lofty theory and sharp intellect. . . . In fact, she told me that remaining engaged with feminist theory will help fuel my activism and advocacy work; she sees academia and activism as collaborative and co-supportive.

Indeed, Judith Butler is a “superstar” in academia. Her books sell thousands of copies every year because they are assigned reading in Women’s Studies classes across the country.

Butler is part of what we may call the Feminist-Industrial Complex, a campus-based intellectual machinery that indoctrinates elite students in these ideas. Every important university in America endorses feminism and “queer theory.” These are part of the de facto official belief system of academia. Anyone on campus who dared speak against such ideas (no one does) would be condemned for hate.

Do you understand why Sara Alcid considers criticism of SlutWalk “disgusting”? She was indoctrinated to believe that being a “Queer Feminist” is a heroic calling, in an environment where the presence of Judith Butler on campus caused “extended excitement.”

And now Sarah Alcid works for a 501(c)3 pro-abortion group, the Reproductive Health Technologies Project:

Sara Alcid – Programs and Policy Associate
Sara is responsible for assisting with RHTP’s reproductive health program areas, including health and wellness and contraception and abortion technologies.
Sara graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Gender and Sexuality Studies. During college, she founded and led a chapter of the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance and interned at Women’s Medical Fund, NARAL Pro-Choice New York and Cancer Schmancer, Inc. Americans for UNFPA named Sara a finalist for the Student Award for the Health and Dignity of Women in 2011. She is also a guest writer for Everyday Feminism and the State Department’s Women in Public Service Project.

Here is Sara Alcid advocating for the cause:

Full implementation of ACA [the Affordable Care Act, i.e., “ObamaCare”] contraception benefits and affordable access to abortion are LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] issues.

Uh, how so, Sara Alcid? One might think that such people have no need for contraception and abortion benefits. But you see, it is vital to the LGBT agenda not merely to advance their own issues, but to do everything possible to subvert any possible opposition.

Every abortion is celebrated as a radical victory by “Queer Feminist” Sara Alcid: Kill more babies, because feminism.

UPDATE: See? Quoting feminists = HATE!

What you discover is that radicals have two discourses: The exoteric discourse, used when speaking to outsiders, is about “choice,” “equality,” “health,” etc. The esoteric discourse, used among fellow radicals, is an entirely different vocabulary: “Smash patriarchy,” destroy “heteronormativity and gender roles” and “systems of domination.”

And when you pull back the exoteric mask to reveal the esoteric truth of radicalism . . . well, that’s intimidation, you haters!

Sara Alcid’s parents spent more than $40,000 a year to have her trained as a “Queer Feminist.” Guess they got their money’s worth.

    Young lady, just because some words as this are used does not mean that they should be bandied about like party favors.

    Internet winner for the week. Everyone can go home now.

    And some here should take the time to find a dictionary and get to studying the accepted English definitions of certain words, because it seems to me they’re just making up their own definitions as they go.

    I simply wished to inquire why – if one believes abortions should be legal – queer individuals should be excluded?

    I wonder why there’s no designated hitter in the National League. The difference between these two questions is that the DH in the NL has actually been proposed, unlike the notion that lesbians be barred from abortions.

    The social “sciences” lost all claim to the status of science when they whored their little selves out for political correctness. Psychology started that in the 50s, and Sociology did it almost from the start. Psychology proved it had reached the end state when they removed homosexuality from the DMSV back in the early 70s.
    There is no scientific sociology at present. I’m not sure it’s possible either.

    You seem to be under severe delusion. Verbally disagreeing with someone is, under no sane definition, bullying them. Any meaningful definition of “bullying” would include using some kind of inordinate power over them, either sheer physical force or institutional authority.

    None of the people here have displayed any of this, and your constant whining about how they’re hurting your feelings has done little to impress us. Your leftist friends call us absolutely vicious things on a regular basis, and we’ve grown accustomed to it. You can deal with a little disagreement.

    I disagree. An ideology is simply a set of beliefs about the world and how it works. It is good or bad as it reflects accurately or inaccurately how the world and human nature works.

    I classify feminism into 3 types:

    Type 1: Men and women are of equal value & deserving of equal respect.

    Type 2: Men and women are the same and should be treated the same.

    Type 3: Men are inherently scum and should yield to the superior wisdom of women.

    Type 3 is obviously vicious and hateful, but type 2 can be nearly as dangerous, as it is based on profoundly mistaken assumptions about how human beings work.

    Ah yes, rape. If you believe abortion should be available for any woman at any point without any need for justification (apparently the standard Dem. position today) why bring this up? You know and I know that rape & the health of the mother account for a tiny percentage of abortions in this country. Considering that, basing your entire argument on such things (which is usually how it goes) is fundamentally dishonest.

    If you think that a woman should be able to kill an unborn infant at any point for any reason, say so and defend your idea. But pretending these fringe cases have any bearing on the real argument is . . . honestly just kind of sad.

  23. Shawn Smith
    August 14th, 2013 @ 8:35 pm

    I’d add that a place of “higher education” with such uniformity of opinion also will render its students incapable of articulately defending their ideas. Having never been presented with alternate viewpoints, they find hit hard to conceive that decent people might honestly disagree. Having never heard a real challenge to the leftist twaddle they receive, they’re unprepared to argue the ideas’ merits and must instead lash out in anger. Hence the cries of “harassment” and “bullying” and “racism” leftists so frequently bleat today.

    If you call a cat a dog, and treat a cat like a dog, do you have a dog? No, you have a badly treated cat.

    The simple fact is that a woman and a man are not the same thing. Thus, two men are not the same as a man and a woman, and should not be treated the same.

    I’m sorry you’re so stupid I had to spell this out for you.

    I find it odd that you accuse Alcid of thinking that she is superior to people poorer than her, and that you also accuse her of being a communist. The two are mutually exclusive as complete economic and class equality are tenants of communism. And also, for the record, 75% of Bryn Mawr student receive some form of financial aid, so it is in fact more likely than not that she did not in fact pay the price you cite so venomously multiple times.
