2) How does anarchism conflict or coalesce with your understanding of feminism? What might be a reason for perceived male-domination in this sphere of progressive politics?

Oh, I can see how it would apply, and in part because some men in the movement are sexist, thereby repeating exactly some of the things they seek to abolish in other parts of their lives, the voices of women and people of all races are needed to balance the scales.

A definition of anarchism as per dictionary.com

1. The theory or doctrine that all forms of government are oppressive and undesirable and should be abolished.

Well, Emma Goldman is my favorite anarchist...

But when I personally struggle with my own beliefs about anarchism, I tend to (perhaps wrongly) see my tendency to veer away from it as feminine. I do think that the concept of the state is inherently oppressive, but in my most optimistic vision of government I see it as a barrier between power and weakness in society. So my fear of anarchism is probably mostly a failure of imagination combined with a fear of the unknown. I guess that's why anarchism isn't as popular as it should be, but sometimes I wonder if women have an even stronger tendency than men to see anarchism as desolate. They are stereotyped as civilizing influences, and this is reflected by their prominence in such regulatory initiatives as the temperance movement, gun control, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, etc. So I think the modern woman's notion of her own independence and safety can be very tied to legislative achievements of the past or maybe even the sense of protection provided by a government.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
