"Whether we are urged to be civil to racists or polite to patriarchy, the goal is the same: to maintain the power of the racist, to maintain the power of patriarchy." Chapter 3: Profanity. My new book The Seven Necessary Sins For Women and Girls #7NecessarySins
“Those white women have allowed their race to trump their gender, believing that their docility, compliance, and allegiance to white supremacy will protect them from the ravages of patriarchy that the rest of us feel. They are, what I call, footsoldiers of the patriarchy.”
“White women have the most privilege of expressing anger and are the last to express it because they are sheltered from so much that ignites anger in the rest of us.” Chapter 2: Anger #7necessarysins
“Then when white women finally find their anger, it is considered a revolution when in reality, they are finally catching up to the revolution of rage that swept up the rest of us.” #7necessarysins
Chapter 3: Profanity. Fuck being nice, polite or civil and fuck any acquiescence to war criminals and fuck the rehabilitation of Bush into a cuddly grandpa who paints lithub.com/mona-eltahawy-… #7necessarysins
