Being a TRA and a marxist is a contradiction, exactly because marxism is materialist. It's not about abstract feelings, but ownership and material reality. Women are oppressed because we control reproduction, and that's why the patriarchal systems stole our right to self-govern our bodies. We can even view other forms of oppression as arising from misogyny, as LGB and gender-nonconformity were seen as threats to the systems built to subjugate women.

This is how I feel when I read about other people's thought processes and the stupid things they do. You can also sum it up with "play stupid games, win stupid prizes."

The idealists' mission to refute materialism and non-believers lives on in the TRA movement.

Please tell me this comic is realy. I would love to read it. I also loved Persepolis.

It's from Persepolis. Pages 3 and 4 from the chapter called The Bicycle.

Sheez. I need to re-read it then. I couldn't remember this at all. Then again I think it's been over 10 years since I last read it.

It could possibly be Marx Para Principiantes by Rius; here's the English translation: https://anakbayanph.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/marx_for_beginners.pdf

It is a comic book, published in 1972, explains dialectical materialism, and includes Descartes -- but Marx doesn't throw a stone at him and the title is different.

Oh my god, this is fabulous!! The clip I posted was from Marjane Satrapi's 'Persepolis.' But this has to be the comic book she was talking about reading as a kid in that chapter!
