10 Things We Want In A Perfect World

This morning I read about something called The Feminist Utopia, which is a project where people can list the things they want in the ideal feminist society. For the record, this doesn’t mean a world where feminists run rampant. It means a world where everyone, no matter what gender, is equal in every sense. It’s basically a world where feminism at its roots is actually applied.

The Feminist Utopia is aiming to really figure out what would make life better in terms of actually having a, well, feminist utopia. They’re putting together “radically imaginative essays, short fiction, poetry, and artwork that answer the question of what a feminist world would look like.” They’re accepting submissions from stories to illustrations to poems to whatever else you have in your imagination. You can submit until July 15 for the chance to be published online and in an original publication.

This project is amazing, and it got us thinking about some things we’d want in our perfect world:

    The Earnings gap is real. Men on average earn more money, though we are paid the same. Men work more overtime, in more dangerous jobs (hazard pay) and negotiate for higher pay more often. Also, why does there need to be equal representation in the media and corporate execs? If equality of opportunity is upheld, then the result is what was meant to occur in a meritocracy.

      Interesting perspective; are you arguing that opportunities for men are the same as for women in currenty day (u.s. I assume we’re speaking rather than global)

      Hello, I was reading comments on murder rates by blacks vs whites. Statistics do not have feelings. Let me submit some qualifiers to the stats. ratio of man to women is 50%. Blacks & whites have a similar ratio, 50% male & 50% female. So if blacks are 13% of our country’s population, 6.5% of blacks are male & 6.5% are female. Women are generally not committing any where near the murders committed by men, I am guessing women commit less than 5% of the murders. So by taking other data into to account like age, black males 15/36 years of age commit 50% of the murders in the USA, yet account for 3% of the black population. The percentage of black people killed by black males is somewhere between 85/90%.
      A major component to being poor is that being raised in a home with only one parent. Another significant component is not finishing High School. Also if a woman has a baby before she finishes H.S. her earning potential is significantly reduced. Currently the rate of black babies born into a single parent home is 70%. It is worth to not that before the War on Poverty started, in the 50’s and 60’s, the ratio of black babies born into a single parent home was 20%.
      Summary, 52% of murders were done by 3% of the population, 48% of the remaining murders were done by 97% of the population, in gross numbers.
      also, I would say that crime causes poverty. When someone work’s and earns money to buy a TV, then someone steals that TV and sells it for 90% less in some cases, making the community poorer.

    This reminds me of the simple things that feminists really want! We’re not asking for world domination; we just want equality for everyone 🙂

    I don’t understand how a rape victim who doesn’t want to carry her rapists child is a slut who screws….. it seems to me that those women need to have a choice, especially since they didn’t exactly have a voice in getting pregnant in the first place, don’t you think?

    Abortion rights? I wish for the world where women don’t screw around than have an abortion as a plan b. Where women don’t screw when they are drunk or high, than have abortions. Where fetisis that mentally ill are not aborted. Where unborn baby girls are not aborted because of their gender. Where rape is not a reason to abort. Where people don’t just brush off abortion like it was nothing. Where women/girls pay for their concenquances when they have unprotected sex. Women/girls need safe abortions. However, they also need to be responsible and not have unwanted kids in the first place. That is the kind wolrd you should want. The world where abortions are needed in the first place.

      That might be one of the most ignorant statements I’ve ever read.

    • Dara B

      I just can’t with this. So because someone is drunk/high and has sex, ultimately becomes impregnated, and doesn’t want to keep th child, they’re essentially sluts who “screw”? Because that seems to be the message youre send from one of the statements you just made.

      If you got raped, would you want to carry the rapists baby? Where whenever you look at them, you’re reminded of that terrible time? I didn’t think so
