Don't call yourself a revolutionary...

An excerpt from: Don't call yourself a revolutionary - A dispatch from Seattle

From Shades of Silence , by Infinite Venom

Don’t call yourself a revolutionary if doing the work around confronting sexual assault and patriarchy is not considered worthy of time and effort, yet you can put massive numbers of hours into planning other campaigns that keep you inside of your comfort zone and give you the illusion that you are “productive”. No, you are not being productive if you think winning small victories and keeping yourself seen and heard matters more than tearing down the oppressions that lead to the necessity for doing the campaigns in the first place. No, it is not a matter of capacity or time management. I see what you are doing. You are counter-revolutionary.
