One of the favorite arguments of the gun control lobby is that the gun
is a “phallic” (penis) symbol, and that, therefore, e.g., women should
not have guns, or that, if they do, they are “suffering from penis
envy” and “trying to be like men”, etc..
This lie is derived from Freud, who, unfortunately, was a patriarchist
who argued, among other things, that women, and especially women who
“try to be like men”, suffer from “penis envy”.
This is totally false. Many more men suffer from clitoris envy than do
women from penis envy.
(As witness Freud’s own totally false and utterly baseless theory that
female masturbation and the clitoral orgasm is a sign of immaturity.)
Freud did associate the gun with the penis (though, actually, in quite
a different context than what the gun banners would imply, fear of the
gun symbolizing a fear of the penis).
But, contrary to Freud and all patriarchists, the clitoris is every
bit as potent and potentially redolent of symbolism as the penis.
If the rifle or long gun is a phallic symbol, then, certainly, the
pistol or handgun is a clitoral symbol.
Freud was partially right here, despite his patriarchist biases. The
fear and hostility toward guns manifested by the gun banning lobby does
indeed manifest a deep-seated fear and hostility toward sexuality.
But is _primarily_ a fear and hostility toward female sexuality. Note
that it is primarily the handgun, not the shotgun, that they seek to
ban.
And note the particular hysteria they display toward the very idea of
_women_ arming themselves with guns.
They spout that favorite patriarchist argument, i.e., that such women
are “trying to be like men”. This — from so-called “feminists”!
Note also that many of these so-called “feminists” who advocate gun
control are also very hostile toward women whose sexuality is not
“politically correct”, is other than “peaceful and nurturing”.
They denounce and often seek to ban pornography, especially
sadomasochist pornography, created by women and for women. They are
hostile toward, fearful of, female domination, lesbian bondage, etc..
They also often oppose women in the military because this is not
“politically correct”, not “peaceful”.
These so-called “feminists” are thus, actually, pawns of patriarchy at
its worst.
The handgun is a clitoral symbol.
As a feminist, I oppose gun control, _especially_ confiscation of
handguns. (And, yes, registration _does_ lead to confiscation.)

“try to be like men”, suffer from “penis envy”.
This is totally false. Many more men suffer from clitoris envy than do
women from penis envy.
(As witness Freud’s own totally false and utterly baseless theory that
female masturbation and the clitoral orgasm is a sign of immaturity.)
Freud did associate the gun with the penis (though, actually, in quite
a different context than what the gun banners would imply, fear of the
gun symbolizing a fear of the penis).
But, contrary to Freud and all patriarchists, the clitoris is every
bit as potent and potentially redolent of symbolism as the penis.
If the rifle or long gun is a phallic symbol, then, certainly, the
pistol or handgun is a clitoral symbol.
Freud was partially right here, despite his patriarchist biases. The
fear and hostility toward guns manifested by the gun banning lobby does
indeed manifest a deep-seated fear and hostility toward sexuality.
But is _primarily_ a fear and hostility toward female sexuality. Note
that it is primarily the handgun, not the shotgun, that they seek to
ban.
And note the particular hysteria they display toward the very idea of
_women_ arming themselves with guns.
They spout that favorite patriarchist argument, i.e., that such women
are “trying to be like men”. This — from so-called “feminists”!
Note also that many of these so-called “feminists” who advocate gun
control are also very hostile toward women whose sexuality is not
“politically correct”, is other than “peaceful and nurturing”.
They denounce and often seek to ban pornography, especially
sadomasochist pornography, created by women and for women. They are
hostile toward, fearful of, female domination, lesbian bondage, etc..
They also often oppose women in the military because this is not
“politically correct”, not “peaceful”.
These so-called “feminists” are thus, actually, pawns of patriarchy at
its worst.
The handgun is a clitoral symbol.
As a feminist, I oppose gun control, _especially_ confiscation of
handguns. (And, yes, registration _does_ lead to confiscation.)

Thank you for that! Bless you and her!

On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property
existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”

I’m standing _outside_ the traditional “liberal” vs. “conservative”
stereotypes. I’m an individualist.
