Assata Shakur, Honey Magazine debut issue (1998)
My friend shared this quote with me today and I instantly remembered another great quote from Assata Shakur that I feel is crucial to be absorbed when reading the quote above “No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them. Nobody is going to teach you your true history, teach you your true heroes, if they know that that knowledge will help set you free”.

true friendship is being comfortable enough to openly discuss pornography with each other
If you look at the world and say “Yes, there are enough homes for people, yes, there is enough food for people, but if we give it away for free they won’t have earned it and the economy will collapse.” Then you have chosen money (a constructed medium of exchange) over living beings who only want to continue living in peace and safety.
And I have no qualms telling you, that is the wrong choice, and you have been brainwashed by this destructive, exploitative system.
I don’t get why everyone seems to be under the impression that feminists hate men.
That’s not true at all! We Love men!

I told myself I’d reblog this when I got home if it was still funny.
its ok to criticize feminism for being exclusionary towards women of color, trans women, poor women, and women from nonwestern cultures
it’s not ok to criticize feminism for not centering itself around men
are we still forgetting disabled women or
Well that was ironic (and amusing)
just screwed up typing the expression “he ducked his head” twice in Word while editing (…and once now when I was typing this post, hand to my fucking heart)
after all the times my phone has wanted to talk about ducking this and ducking that, I’m almost blue in the face from laughing so hard over here
