"Naturally the crimes we are talking about are anti-social acts, that is those which offend human feelings and which infringe the right of others to equality in freedom, and not the many actions which the penal code punishes simply because they offend against the privileges of the dominant classes."
Errico Malatesta in His Life and Ideas, pp. 105-6
"If [someone] has reproductive choice but can’t afford it, with all practical intents and purposes, [they] do not have reproductive choice. A right on paper is not a right."

"Militancy is undermined by the politics of safety. It becomes impossible to do anything that involves risk when people habitually block such actions on the grounds that it makes them feel unsafe."
Jackie Wang, Against Innocence (from Lies Journal)
power is offered. it’s eroticized and publicized. power is a bargain. to be empowered is fantastic, but it can happen at our own expense. men might convince us we are being empowered, but we might merely be having our power drained for their sake. they might phrase it as “empowerment”, but is it empowerment when it further disempower us in the long run? or was it a lie like the rest of what they’ve publicized and eroticized for us? our sexuality? our consent? our bodies themselves?
we are constanly looking for what is empowering, but we never ask ourselves why that is empowering, and where that power is being drained from — or inside whose strucutre that power is working, and therefore, to whose power is it contributing.

people act like it’s some kind of revolutionary subversion of gender roles when men do things like bake or paint, as if those things as crafts and trades have not historically been and are not still dominated by men, as if women pursuing them are not marginalized and reduced to hobbyists, i’m just saying is all
"[Some] seem almost to believe that after having brought down government and private property we would allow both to be quietly built up again, because of respect for the freedom of those who might feel the need to be rulers and property owners. A truly curious way of interpreting our ideas."
