So, I have a question.
The following blogs, that I know of, have linked to the articles here, or have blogged about the rape of ‘Abir Hamzah themselves: Den of the Biting Beaver, Sinister Girl, I’m Not a Feminist But, Capitalism Bad, Tree Pretty, One Ohio Woman, Laurelin in the Rain, Incurable Hippie, One Salford Feminist, Burning Library, Abyss2Hope, Feministing
All of these blogs are women’s blogs.
Has anybody seen any pro-feminist men blogging about this anywhere? I don’t mean leftist guys talking about the war in general and why we should get out and taking potshots at Republicans, Bush and the Right in general using this horrific event as just so much more cannon fodder. Fuck that. I definitely don’t mean right-wing and pro-war men. They definitely are blogging about it. In fact, I have received death threats from some of these guys as a result of these posts.
I mean male allies. Pro-feminist men. Where is your analysis? Where is your outrage? Where can I go to find you calling out the men on their rape of this girl? Where are you calling men out for using and buying rape pornography of the type I posted on this blog? Where is your discussion going on? Where are you talking about soldiers trading photos of battlefield butchery for photos of raped Iraqi women? Where are you talking about rape during wartime, rape as war, rape as femicide?
Where is your support? Where are your expressions of solidarity?
Where the hell are you?
