Those wacky radical feminists!

From Rad Geek People's Daily, we have two quotations from Dworkin and MacKinnon, which seem rather relevant given the shit that's been going down in North Carolina et al.

Meanwhile, in the writings of insane radical feminists who nobody listens to or has even heard of and are clearly hysterical and completely out of touch with reality and who don’t ever write about politics anyway:

"The state is male in the feminist sense: the law sees and treats women the way men see and treat women."
—Catharine MacKinnon (1989), Toward a Feminist Theory of the State


"There is not a feminist alive who could possibly look to the male legal system for real protection from the systemized sadism of men. Women fight to reform male law, in the areas of rape and battery for instance, because something is better than nothing. In general, we fight to force the law to recognize us as the victims of the crimes committed against us, but the results so far have been paltry and pathetic."
—Andrea Dworkin (1979), For Men, Freedom of Speech; For Women, Silence Please
