QotD: “Women’s humanity is obvious”

When it comes to relations between the sexes, men do not rape, murder, brutalise, denigrate and oppress women worldwide because women have not educated them sufficiently about our humanity. Women’s humanity is obvious. Men deny it because they enjoy oppressing us, because they directly benefit from it, and they will only stop when women organise politically to MAKE them stop, when we dismantle the institutions by which they perpetuate this. Patriarchy is not a mistake, it is not some glitch in the system that has arisen due to ignorance on the part of men. It is a deliberate arrangement of power.
