We reject any method of studying feminism which commences by adopting the feminist worldview, recognizing that any feminist definition of feminism can only be a product of that worldview -- a worldview we do not share! As non-feminist philosophers, we understand that you cannot begin within feminism and then argue your way out of it by using feminist vocabulary and discourse to pave your road. No. You must declare yourself alien to feminism as a necessary first step; you must occupy the Archimedian standpoint and proceed from there.
The radical feminist Audre Lorde once famously remarked that "you cannot dismantle the master's house with the master's tools." As non-feminist philosophers, we understand feminism on independent terms, and we have not formulated our conclusion through any feminist chain of reasoning. So our strategy is to reframe the entire discussion, forcing them to engage our issues on our terms while roadblocking their customary avenues of evasion.
