Clearing up some confusion

femsignEmma at Gendergeek provides a FAQ for those perplexed or threatened by feminism and discussion of same.
I don't see why x, y, or z is a gendered issue.

Just as fish don't know they're swimming in water, it's very difficult for members of any patriarchal society to see the gender-blindness that surrounds them. Feminism would argue that all issues require to be the subject of a gendered analysis, or goods, services, policy, and legislation will be developed without understanding the needs of women. The issues addressed on Gendergeek are not only gender issues, but we are offering a gendered analysis of them.
For those times when "get over your special little self" just doesn't seem productive...
