the Phrase ”the personal is political” was coined in 1968 by the american radikalfeministen Carol Hanisch that in the so-called awareness-raising women's groups came to the following:
things we discover in these groups is that personal problems are political problems. There are no personal solutions at this time. There is only collective action for a collective solution.”
A favoritskräckhistoria in the circle of acquaintances if such a ”collective solution” is the one about the two women who discover that they share the same boyfriend and the one woman resolutely going over to the other with a bottle of wine to talk it out and bonda under the motto: ”Now is the sisterhood.” The women compare their calendars, uncover partnered and decides both to end their contacts with the man in question.
time I hear that kind of story; how the women breaks a dyssigt patterns of unrequited love and the subservient silence by creating a little action in the tvåsamhetsidyllen. Activism consisting of angry mistresses can also take the form of a metooinspirerade varningsgrupper on social media. This may clumsy the players of their pants shut under the pretext of nysysterlig feminism.
To make the culture of the misery and attempt to discover an overall pattern in their individual misery is another tried and tested variant. Lena Andersson's novel ”Without personal liability” and Nahid Persson's film ”Anders, I and his 23 other women” are two well-known examples in the near future, which both amused (mostly women) and concerned (mostly men).
and tell-the story on real people is a third proven way for the cheated mistresses to stir the pot. Lex, Carina Rydberg's ”The highest caste”, and Maja Lundgren's ”Mosquitoes and tigers”. Rarely appreciated in the kulturmanskretsar.
In his new novel, ”Haggan” use Aase Berg all the ingredients from the above examples, and take the expression, ”the personal is political” to an entirely new level. Berättarjaget Thelma will be left by a married man, Victor, after a long period of time as a horny, happy and grateful mistress.
”Haggpartiet might be able to develop to become a female contender for the incel-the men and their nazipartier? They may not be against those who no longer want to.”
Victor thanked for the coffee and gone back to his wife and his well-polished family goes Thelma berserk and turn into the raging, kaninkokande, liberating bitterfittiga and very entertaining Haggan:
this book is? Glenn Close boiling a rabbit? No, I want more than to cook a rabbit. I want to cook a whole kaninfarm, the whole of the genus Oryctolagus, in one of the cauldrons steaming of the lava.”
Haggan requires that her situation should be seen as a universal concern, that her role as a mistress to be elevated to kvinnofälla in a ”patriarchal system with the mendacious bourgeois tystnadskultur”, that her story is going to be classified as a social issue and politics. ”In the long run, he wanted to just suck me out to sondmata it luftkippande marriage.”
Aase Berg not only want to reclaima the word hag, but also see it as an active verb, to hag. She instigates all the mistresses to haggande:
you now want to become haggor. Come on, we detonate. The cold war, silent and dirty and smooth as a mushroom cloud, sound-proofed and elegantly and fucking evil, just brilliant. #haggan. Or give us a call. Hope I don't get nedringd.”
Haggpartiet might be able to develop to become a female contender for the incel-the men and their nazipartier? They may not be against those who no longer want to. I assume that either ms Nyamko Sabuni or Erik Ullenhag is the current leader.
