New Wave Radical

I’ve just gotten off the phone with the local authorities about this harassment. They said that these sort of actions are, in fact, against the law and the right group will be able to take this seriously. Unfortunatly that group isn’t them (which I guess kinda makes sense, since none of this is actually local to my area), but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t have been more helpful or pointed me in a better direction than “contact the FBI”. I am a little wary about doing that because they have a habit of turning on those who report to them, or calling womyn who try to stand up as crying wolf. I also called an old friend of mine who works at an ISP to see what he might be able to do to help us, and he said that this sort of stuff happens all the time (as if that makes it okay or any less horrifying). I am going to try and follow the lead with him to see where I can get.

Run and hide little boys, the women are coming to get you once and for all.

Well it has come to my attention that there have been a wide series of these hacker attempts. Why does that not surprise me! Word like “war” and “invasion” and even “rape” (or “raep” as they call it, as if internet rape was different or, ugh, better). Stupid boys and their conflict, why do they always have to go out and try to destroy everything that we create. As if their purpose in life, their entire existance, is there to destroy.

I’m going to do some more digging to see what I can come up with, other blogs and victims about this blatant attack on privacy and free speach. Keep watching, heads will roll!

{August 7, 2007}   Random Thoughts While At Work

(Originally posted back in April, sorry about editing the timestamp. Blame the misogynist hackers.) 

The dictionary definition of feminism is stated: the movement for the political, social, and educational equality of women with men. In my opinion, feminism can mean a whole deal of things. It can mean women fighting for jobs that were mainly held by men with equal pay. It can mean women fighting for equal education in a so called male dominant world. Feminism can give lesbian women the chance to adopt and have children. Audre Lorde gives her opinion about the meaning of feminism throughout her essays and books that she writes. She consistently challenged a number of things like racism, ageism, classism, sexism and heterosexism, serving as a means for change within and among social movements, in which she herself participated in. Audre Lorde also discusses how perceiving others as being different is a main reason why black women feminist can’t get ahead.

I have to question things like that, to be honest. Lately, in posts and comments on some of the blogs I read, there seems to be a “will you women just stop whining” attitude developing in response to feminists speaking about the global injustices endured by women. We’re accused of being stuck in a ‘cult of victimhood’ by people who either don’t have the first clue or those who relate their own tale of survival and self-perceived success with nary a thought for those with less power/resources/privilege/ support/luck than they have. You know, that ‘you can help yourself, just look at me – I play the system and it works for me!’ view.

I just wonder if there ever will be light at the end of the tunnel, and it makes me sad.

{August 4, 2007}   Sickening Internet Boys

Alright well here I am, back again. The wordpress techs said that there was nothing they could do and that I should just delete all of the spam and hate and vile that the hackers posted. How pathetic! I mean, isn’t something like this against the law? Invasion of privacy? I thought that this sort of thing was illegal. When somebody breaks into your house or your car or violates your body, the authorities don’t just say “whoops, try again.” Ugh. It amazes me how men can be so cruel to something they don’t understand. If anything this is a testament to why our thoughts and opinions carry weight, perhaps a cornerstone to being heard in the future.

I have some of my previous blog entires backed up in word files (where I usually start these, so I can write them and come back), but I will have to dig through my folders to see just how many. So hopefully not all is lost and I can make this a real blog again.

I’ve been doing a little bit of research from (previously) linked blogs, apparantly I’m not the only one who has been attacked. Things like this need to come out in the open, so that womyn can protect themselves from such online violence. As before, this has to be a crime on some level. I changed the passwords for all of my email addresses and forums and everything, in a paranoid attempt to try and keep myself safe. Goddess, I almost wish they did get that and do something as stupid as break into my Paypal or something. Then I know they could get busted like they should.

Sigh. To my few friends, please try to post your old comments and support as I try to get old articles back on here. Thanks.
