Fulfilling the CPDA's One Year Plan. Details are provided here: communism.deviantart.com/journ…
Dear Comrades of the CPDA,

For roughly the past month, our group invoked a freeze on approval of new members due to fears of fascist infiltration over the situation with Communism-World. We implemented this freeze in order to monitor incoming members more strictly, with the hopes that our current and prospective members would not become too concerned over our state of affairs. All should be glad to know that the freeze appears to have been a success by all means; in fact, we received very few questionable membership applications during the freeze, leading us to believe that our policy likely discouraged most attempts at a repeat of the previous fiasco with Communism-World. As such, the membership freeze has now been lifted and new members have begun to be added in the past few days. Prospective members are no longer being denied on principle, but rather only on our usual standards as before the potential crisis within our group. This journal is meant purely as a notice to inform this community of the goings-on behind the scenes that all of you may or may not have been aware of. We hope that the CPDA has come out of this worrying time stronger and more confident in our capabilities than ever. Thank you.

Signed,
KnoFear
Commissar of Theory and Ideology

Lady comrades, and those who stand by them, I have an honest question. I know you all want equal rights with men but do you find yourself more on the Feminist side or the Equalist side. As a white, straight, male I find I can't just be a feminist though I deeply do want equality between the sexes. I find that many women who protest simply want the good without the bad, for example: Equal payment among sexes but some still don't want to be signed up for the draft. (This is in the US) I would gladly fight for Equality and not privilege, yet many feminists I've come across are either just in it for the privileges and not the faults, or are simply men haters. There are also the matter of inequalities among men, for example, try a child custody case. 9 times out of 10 the mother will win that, no matter how good a father is or a mother is not.  

Being in the more relaxed side of the spectrum I find it is my need to support all equality movements and not take my time on a single effort for a single group. I go more under the equalist banner.

But after that rambling I wanted to see what my fellow comrades, and lady comrades thought about that issue and how they supported it. I know this is not a feminist group so to say, but we are communists, and equality is our game.

Actually, we are by all means a feminist grouping. Despite what some odd, young radicals may appear to say on sites like tumblr, we tend to view feminism as a necessary component of the communist movement. We regularly ally with revolutionary feminists, as they are generally fellow travelers in every positive sense of the phrase. I personally consider myself a feminist as well, however, this does not necessarily mean you (or any of our members, by that extension) must call themselves feminists. The name is not inherently important to us, as long as we continue to fight for a socialist liberation that does not discriminate on any arbitrary basis like sex or gender, or any other dividing categories for that matter.

I agree completely, we need to stand together for all, no matter what category they fall under. I like to use Dr. King as an example where after he had helped the African American movement he did not stop, he continued to protest the Vietnam war as well as uniting with the lower class. In fact he was killed when he was doing work with a local Union. I deeply respect the fact that after he had done his work, he could have easily stopped, but didn't, or just held his focus on the African American Community, but he didn't. 

That's the reason I go under the term Equalist rather than Feminist. I 100% support the women's movement but not just the women's movement. I simply started this post not to cause division but to see how other fellow comrades felt about the issues.

When you look into it women being excluded from military service comes from patriarchal social attitudes rather than Feminism. When you look at societies that take up Feminist ideas women take part in the armed forces. ie: The Soviet Union, Rojava, Cuba etc.

Quite right, my only thing was that many of the "privilege" feminists would want the benefits of being equal without the drawbacks of being equal. Something the "Realistic" Feminists oftentimes are much more understanding and supporting of. I live in SF, one of the most progressive movement based cities in America, I have come across a lot of feminist students at the art school I go to, when I ask about things like the draft or other drawbacks of equality they almost always act like I am putting them down or trying to "scare" them out of equality. It seems like it is much rarer to find Feminists who are willing to take the good with the bad.

I guess that is why I see myself as more of an equalist then a Feminist.

Seems a bit weird to bring up the draft anyway because there hasn't been a military draft in the United States for 30 years so it's unlikely that you're going to be called up.
Also a great number of men aren't subject to military service because they not be healthy enough or they don't mean army standards or because they have reserved occupation.

It doesn't surprise me that act like that because sounds like you're try to scare them off.

Saying you're an "equalist and not a feminist" is like saying you hate dogs but like corgis

Im bullyed at school for believing in the motherland, but her inspiration is far more powerful than their words.

Ideas, my friend, are always more powerful than those who would challenge us. Our ideas, Marx and Engels ideas, Lenin's ideas. These have lived on, even though many have challenged them, even though the Soviet Motherland is gone. Time will pass, but our ideas will remain. And, much like you and I, there will be those who believe in those ideas, those who will fight for them.

That is why our enemies will never win.

Why do Communist still exist?

Honestly aside from some propaganda in the 20's, propaganda from drunk ass Mccarthy in the 50's, and a few effed up leaders, no one should fear communism or even the lefter side of the political chart. Anyone who wants to help others should all be about communism. In its core has a great lot to teach us all, both about equality and cooperation.

Why do Libertarians still exist?

EDIT: More appropriately, why do Confederate sympathizers still exist? Or Christians? Or, frankly, religious people in general? All happen to have similar answers to your own question. Because there are those that believe in what these things stand for.

We all fight for what we believe in. Tragically, this tends to have made for very spectacular wars and other such conflicts. Or for rather stunning and fatal acts of violence. At least we Communists have never pretended to have God (or any other deity) on our side. Actually, more have likely been killed in the name of some god or another than were ever killed in the name of Communism. Then again, religion has had over 3,000 years or better to hash that one out. Interestingly, very few people have likely died in the name of Communism over the past thirty years in comparison to those who have died in the name of some deity. The current mess in the Middle East is evidence of that...

Communists still exist because we sincerely believe we can do better, that we can create a better way of life for mankind. I presume those are similar reasons to your support of Confederate, Conservative, and Christian values. Or perhaps it's just God telling you to do it. I really don't care either way...
