Men Don’t Have to Take it Either…

Posted on: November 9, 2012

 

Many years ago, I wrote an article about battering in lesbian relationships.

I interviewed a woman who admitted hitting her partner.

 

another interview that I did for the article was with the then office co-ordinator of the Vancouver Lesbian Centre in vancouver , british columbia.

 

I asked her “Where do men belong in the women’s movement?”

 

she answered: “on the sidelines working with other men.”

 

I said: “Shouldn’t women in battered women’s shelters see that there are good and caring men?”

 

She said “No, that would be too traumatizing.”

 

“SO,” I said, “What you are telling me is that men should be operating the shelters that lesbians go to?”

 

there was a long moment of silence.

 

She said “I never saw you lead me down that garden path. You really want to be black balled in the feminist community, don’t you?”
