27. Capitalism commodifies EVERYTHING, including sex......

But sex is not the only thing it commodifies. As I said, it makes a commodity out of EVERYTHING. That's systemic.

As to traditional feminism, I think that the heart of the individuals are in the right place (opposing oppression), BUT feminism IS a bourgeois social movement. Without a grounding in Marx, ultimately all it will do is SOLIDIFY THE OPPRESSION OF CAPITALISM. For all of us. Because traditional feminism doesn't call for abolishing the root of the problem.

Worker's Power has a VERY good pamphlet on women's issues with a lot of great historical analyses of what has led us to today. The US section has recently updated this very good pamphlet and it will soon be available. I learned a WHOLE lot during the editing process.
