Gexx in Knoxville

This blog is about Gexx, in Knoxville

Link to article. i don’t feel like writing much. i’m hungry.

“I support sexual empowerment. I think it’s more of having a critical eye to how capitalism produces this sexual fetished culture.”
Samhita Mukhopadhyay

“… feminist solidarity rooted in a commitment to progressive politics must include a space for rigorous critique, for dissent, or we are doomed to reproduce in progressive communities the very forms of domination we seek to oppose.”
bell hooks

“Why is it that many contemporary male thinkers, especially men of color, Sarah Palin repudiates the imperialist legacy of Columbus but affirms dimensions of that legacy by their her refusal to repudiate patriarchy?”
bell hooks (me)

“As all advocates of feminist politics know most people do not understand sexism or if they do they think it is not a problem. Masses of people think that feminism is always and only about women seeking to be equal to men. And a huge majority of these folks think feminism is anti-male. Their misunderstanding of feminist politics reflects the reality that most folks learn about feminism from patriarchal mass media.”
bell hooks
