By Margarete Stokowski
In ihrem Debüt «Untenrum frei» schreibt die Autorin und Spiegel-Online-Kolumnistin Margarete Stokowski über die kleinen schmutzigen Dinge und über die großen Machtfragen. Es geht darum, wie die Freiheit im Kleinen mit der Freiheit im Großen zusammenhängt, und am Ende wird deutlich: Es ist dieselbe. Mit scharfsinnigem Blick auf die info gelingt ihr ein persönliches, provokantes und befreiendes Buch.
Stokowski erzählt von dem frühen Wunsch, unbedingt als Mädchen wahrgenommen zu werden, von unzulänglichem Aufklärungsunterricht, von Haaren und Enthaarung, von Gewalterlebnissen, von intercourse, von Liebe und vom Feminismus. Und sie verbindet ihre wunderbar erzählten persönlichen Erlebnisse mit philosophischen, politischen und wissenschaftlichen Analysen und zeigt damit: Sie ist mit ihren Erfahrungen nicht alleine. Wir fühlen uns als freie, aufgeklärte Individuen, aber erst wenn wir Geschichte um Geschichte zusammentragen, wird die kollektive Schieflage, die strukturelle Ungleichheit sichtbar. Dennoch: «Wenn ich Geschichten aus meinem Leben erzähle, dann nicht, um langsam, aber sicher ein Bild von mir als Vollopfer aufzubauen», schreibt Stokowski – im Gegenteil. Ihr geht es um eine «Ent-Opferung». Humorvoll und klug geht sie damit der Frage nach, wie politisch das deepest noch immer ist.
«Der Feminismus erklärt mir nicht, warum der Bus nicht auf mich wartet. Aber er erklärt mir, warum ich mich für mein Zuspätkommen entschuldigen werde, auch wenn ich nicht schuld conflict, sondern der Bus zu früh gefahren ist. Er erklärt mir, warum viele der Frauen, die ich kenne, sich auch noch entschuldigen würden, wenn sie von einem Meteoriten getroffen werden.»
