Feminism is Not One Size Fits All – aka, This Feminist is for Bernie

forbernieI posted this over on fb, and a friend suggested I post it here too. So here it is.

This has been a long time brewing, but the incident with Gloria Steinem yesterday pushed me over the edge.

So, some issues I’m having with some feminists this election cycle:

1. Fucking Gloria, what the hell??? If you think my daughter (a proud Bernie supporter) is voting with her hormones (and apparently you do), you can fuck right off.

2. White ladies insisting that anyone who isn’t voting for Hillary is betraying feminism. Truth is, Hillary isn’t the strongest feminist in the race. And, intersectionality is a *thing*! And, being a “feminist” is only ONE of the essential elements that creates a good candidate. Others are voting records regarding access to healthcare (Bernie is for a universal healthcare system), prison reform (Bernie has a plan to end privatization for example), drug law reform (Bernie, for example, wants to end marijuana prohibition), and etc. (And if you don’t know why these issues are – or MUST BE – feminist issues, I hope you will read Jailbreaking the Goddess: A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality when it comes out in July.)

In case you’re under the misapprehension that voting for Bernie makes you a bad feminist, rest assured, voting for Bernie doesn’t make you a bad feminist. And voting for Hillary doesn’t make you a good one.

Jailbreaking the Goddess

the initiation

a.baa-Flower-puncturing-concreteJoin me for Jailbreaking the Goddess: The Initiation – a powerfully transformational seven month process of spiritual self-discovery, psychological self-reflection, and holistic reclaiming and revisioning of the feminal divine.

In our seven months together, we will:
•    Immerse ourselves in the fluid, nonlinear, multivalent, rich, beautiful complexity of a fivefold model for the feminal divine
•    Experience opportunities for feminal empowerment, experience, and honoring
•    Conjure the space and framework in which to experience these five aspects of the divine feminal in you and as you,  us and through us
•    Help you to claim your body as your OWN, free of concepts of biological and sexual utility – you will come home to the full awareness that you are more than your biology. Your uterus is not public property. Your sexuality is not for other people. In the trajectory of this course you will come to know these truths in a radical and abiding way.
•    Hold a strong container of (non-gender-specific) sisterhood – a cauldron of changes – which will house our psychological, spiritual, personal and collective transformation
•    Reveal and acknowledge the overculture/dominant culture values that form the foundation of our development in both our interpersonal and intrapersonal development
•    Find our roots in the rich loam of ancient, timeless, fertile soil that exists under and outside of contemporary structures of socialization
•    Create a dedicated, shared, virtual space within which we will confront, deconstruct, and move through ideologies and patterns of action that reinforce disempowerment
•     Find deep transformation in the process of releasing, centering, and renewing


“In Jailbreaking the Goddess, Lasara deconstructs and reimagines the Divine Feminine in ways that not only make sense but ring true at a deep level. It’s a refreshing vision of the Goddess I met many years ago in the Spiral Dance. I got so much out of the work I’ve already done with Lasara that I have signed up for an on-line seven month intensive with the material. I highly recommend Lasara and her workshop.
