redland shared a quote
Big Breasts and Wide Hips by Mo Yan
“Old Du,” he said, “what would people think if you started a fight with a blind man? We all live in the same village. We win some arguments and we lose others, but it’s always a matter of someone’s bowl smashing into someone else’s plate, and that’s how it goes. Up there on Changbai Mountain, it’s no easy matter to run into a fellow villager, so you feel as if you’re with family!”
Mo Yan

oh my god
The Will to Change by bell hooks
“No wonder then that male rage is often most directed at women in intimate relationships. Such relationships clearly trigger for many males the anger and rage they felt in childhood when their mothers did not protect them or ruthlessly severed emotional bonds in the name of patriarchy.”

“Patriarchy is a political-social system that insists that males are inherently dominating, superior to everything and everyone deemed weak, especially females, and endowed with the right to dominate and rule over the weak and to maintain that dominance through various forms of psychological terrorism and violence”
bell hooks, The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love

“As women have gained the right to be patriarchal men in drag,”
bell hooks, The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love

bell hooks
“We learn to love men more because they will not love us. If they dared to love us, in patriarchal culture they would cease to be real “men.”
bell hooks, The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love

bell hooks
“Indeed, men who feel, who love, often hide their emotional awareness from other men for fear of being attacked and shamed. This is the big secret we all keep together—the fear of patriarchal maleness that binds everyone in our culture. We cannot love what we fear. That is why so many religious traditions teach us that there is no fear in love.”
