“A world deprived of male sensibilities is an incomplete world. So it’s very delicate. It’s not a line. It’s where two things come together and touch… What I’m trying to say is that white feminist views are in some areas so problematic for me… The hierarchy being established is what’s problematic. So there are those who want to accommodate themselves into a man’s world, those who want to take over the freedom and access of a man’s world, and those who want to exclude men entirely from the world that they live in. They run the gamut, it seems to, all based on some hostility. Not that they’re not legitimate complaints. The enemy is not men. The enemy is the concept of patriarchy, the concept of patriarchy as the way to run the world or do things is the enemy, patriarchy in medicine, patriarchy in schools, or in literature.” Toni Morrison: Conversations. Jackson: U of Mississippi, 2008.
Happy Friday – fight the system y’all!
