The Least You Can Do
Patriarchy has an uncanny ability to absorb subversion and repurpose it to underline patriarchal power. Therefore, anyone desiring to subvert patriarchy must not only be committed but diligent in not contributing to the reinforcement of patriarchy.
Although most females cannot achieve a space in everyday life free from males, the internet, to a certain extent, can provide that space. Of course, we cannot hold nor have genital checks on the internet and there is no doubt that a male may slip by/through occasionally. However, it will not last long, because written communication is often more revealing than appearances. Words can betray. Someone conditioned from birth will feel the right words and others conditioned from birth will use the wrong words.
Once a male is allowed in, the space is compromised, —penetrated, thus, the subversion has been repurposed to reinforce patriarchy. He is entering with the support of the world behind him. He is entering with the support of most if not all mainstream feminist blogs behind him. He is entering as the oppressor demanding your attention and commandeering the purpose. The admission is all that is necessary. It does not matter if twenty females agree that the male was argued down or proven wrong or made to look like an idiot, the Truth is, he managed to break through the attempted subversion. Patriarchy won, subversion lost.
The only strategy, there is absolutely no other, is to keep him out. Out. Out. Keeping him out is the subversion. If he is not kept out, your efforts will simply be repurposed. Don’t believe me? Look around and read closely what most feminist blogs talk about daily.
