I ran into Sonia Johnson at the first continental Bioregional Congress in 1984 when she was running for president as the Citizens Party candidate. She was the first woman to get federal matching funds to run for president, but she had little or no support from the national media. Beginning in 1977 she campaigned indefatigably for the Equal Rights Amendment, denouncing her church's (Mormon) opposition to the amendment. If you feel this kind of animus is likely to lead to clear thinking about very complex matters, then this is the book for you.

This book is very anti-monogamy

This book is very anti-monogamy. On the sole evidence that her personal relationship had gotten boring and robotic. Of course it couldn't be her, it had to be the entire idea of monogamous "relati This woman is a little nutso. Like, she thinks men are unnecessary and if you just were to be on a lesbian compound long enough, you'd learn how to make babies without them. It is well within the scope of current patriarchal boundaries for two lesbians to live as a suburban couple, have children, own a home, have two cars and be accepted at a progressive block party. Heterosexuality may be a prevalent example of male dominance, but it is not the prime mover of patriarchy - hierarchy is.

I ran into Sonia Johnson at the first continental Bioregional Congress in 1984 when she was running for president as the Citizens Party candidate. She was the first woman to get federal matching funds to run for president, but she had little or no support from the national media. Beginning in 1977 she campaigned indefatigably for the Equal Rights Amendment, denouncing her church's (Mormon) opposition to the amendment. This resulted in her excommunication from the church.

Soon after she parted ways with the church, her husband divorced her, the mother of four. Eventually, she began a relationship with a woman. The Ship book is the story of how she found that even relationships between female couples are "slave ships" (hence the title).

To read Sonia Johnson, I suggest you just loosen up, go for the ride as she does, and see where it takes you. Even if you don't come to her conclusions, I feel confident that you will not see things quite the same, and you'll be more awake and aware of your most basic acts.

She discusses how taking care of others is a form of control. For example, "my" children must be all right in order for me to be all right. I strongly identify with her when she notes that the rescuer/victim pattern was the most difficult to break. She says that a certain kind of distance is essential to intimacy, that we need to regard our intimates as capable of handling their own affairs.

Johnson echoes other feminists in saying that women are taught to be "a good woman" who doesn't ask herself what she wants and even loses touch with what she wants. Women also learn that it is noble to suffer. She reminds us that we can be empathetic when others suffer - our children, for instance - without waiting to be happy only when they are happy.

I appreciate her suggestions about sex and they ring true with me. She sees women's natural approach to sex as arousal (connected to power), not excitation (connected to control). She suggests that you touch your lover for the joy that touch gives you at that moment without trying to stimulate or control the other. That kind of touch connects your heart with your lover. No response is required. She claims that this same style works for women in acting in the world - the power of actions that arise organically.

If you are not buying into the "gotta be in a relationship" propaganda, this book sheds light on some of the more complex aspects of being a woman who loves a woman. She very good at pointing out how one's relationship status is ruled by unspoken expectations that stem from the very word relationship. Her analogy of the cruise ship and it's commanders and crew establishing new order in the household following the decision to move in with her woman. Even how to refer to her new live in lover is a chapter in itself. Gets you thinking.

Just when you thought you'd heard everything there was to hear about relationships, sex, etc., along comes a book that is chock full of new and stunning insights. Alas, this book is also loaded with the author's usual nonsense, wishful thinking, and extremist rejection of anything smacking of tradition or even---it seems at times---common sense.

There is some solid observation here, some eye-opening and mind-changing observation in an arena seemingly done to death. It would not do to throw these babies out with the bathwater. Read this book, definitely, but with a healthy dose of salt.

And I tossed this book out the open living room window. Among the author's favorite terms are phallocracy, manunkind, and menstream. If you feel this kind of animus is likely to lead to clear thinking about very complex matters, then this is the book for you.
