Author Sophie Lewis' forthcoming book is titled 'Abolish the Family'

LINK



quote:

"our most eloquent, furious and funny critic of how the family is a terrible way to satisfy all of our desires for love, care, nourishment" and wrote that Lewis's work "offers a powerful introduction to the world beyond the nuclear family."


quote:

"Lewis is clear-eyed and witty about the inevitable knee-jerk reaction to calls for family abolition. ('So! The left is trying to take grandma away, now, and confiscate the kids, and this is supposed to be progressive? What the f***?') And it's true that family abolition, like other abolitionist movements, presents certain discomforts," Maglaque wrote. "Lewis acknowledges these discomforts, and asks us to imagine beyond them. The family isn't actually any good at creating intimacy, Lewis argues; the family creates, in fact, a dearth of care, with shreds and scraps of intimacy fought out between overworked parents and totally dependent kids, hidden behind the locked doors of private property."

I don’t think she has to worry much about reproduction.

Perhaps in her shitty life (and the likely equally shotty lives of her social circle).

These people are born miserable and try to project their misery onto others. Sorry no one wants to stick their penis inside of you.

quote:

"Where pregnancy is concerned, let every pregnancy be for everyone. Let us overthrow, in short, the 'family,'" the book description states. "Rather than looking at surrogacy through a legal lens, Lewis argues that the needs and protection of surrogates should be put front and center. Their relationship to the babies they gestate must be rethought, as part of a move to recognize that reproduction is productive work. Only then can we begin to break down our assumptions that children 'belong' to those whose genetics they share. Taking collective responsibility for children would radically transform our notions of kinship, helping us to see that it always takes a village to make a baby."

I've got a new idea.

Abolish caring about what other people do if it doesn't affect you.

Haven’t we already been doing this experiment in our inner cities since the 60s/70s? Seems to be working well.

All these "it takes a village" retards don't realize that the village is an extension of the nuclear family, not a replacement.
