We have recommended The Guilty Feminist Podcast before. This particular episode, #150, struck me. The topic is disobedience and how do we engage in acts of disobedience on a daily basis. Episode 150 talks about disobedience and much more.
Disobedience must act counter to something. Patriarchy is an obvious force to act out against and I respect that train of behavior. How do we act out against patriarchy? How can we do it every day?
What are some micro-disobediences we can engage in? I listened to the podcast a week ago and I am still mulling this over. I am unwilling to live my entire life as an ongoing act of protest. But I can sure as hell rock the boat on a regular basis.
But how? When? Where? And most importantly, why?
I don’t have any solid answers. But I keep thinking about it.
Disobedient. What does it mean? I have an OED so I’m going to look it up. Okay, I like this definition: guilty of breach of prescribed duty.
How can I be guilty of breaching prescribed duty?
Listen to the episode and see what you think. I am not sure yet what I am thinking about this but I am thinking about it.
Disobedient. An accepted synonym?
