The anarchists have stood still, are continuing to stand still, hypnotised by the conviction of having been in the right, of being still in the right

ha.... this is the only apt observation... I definitely feel it myself from time to time

I found this stressful to read for some reason. I think I could hear the din of hours-long meetings and debates in the background as I read...

On another note...

an arcadian dream fuelled on lentils, lust and a longing to put the theory of women's liberation into practice.

Lentils, Lust, and Liberation has quite a ring to it. So long as the lentils are properly spiced... Someone needs to teach hippies how to cook legumes properly.

true true true true truuueeee. I'm not trying to make an enemy of any "type" of woman. I'm just feeling very aware of how much more efficient and effective and inclusive a movement can be if there is reflection among those pushing for change in order to ensure no one is being left behind or left to do more work, or left being unheard. I get that you're adamant about there being a plethora of issues beyond what rich women are up to and I'm completely on board. In the back of my head I'm still really trying to figure out if there is an in between -- a kind of dialogue that allows for critical feedback within a movement without it reaching the point of being victim blaming.... All for the sake of creating a stronger movement.

Hmmm yes I don't like that. This article was written back in December but I the divisiveness is timeless I guess. I am very pro eat the men who stop us. But I also want to encourage a certain level of dedication to ensuring the most equality possible within the women's movement. We must move forward together and that means not creating extra labour for your fellow ones!! And being sensitive to the nuance in eachother's needs.
