Every time we remain silent in the face of patriarchy, rape culture, white supremacy, and male pattern violence, we are supporting all of that…and much more. Our silence and inaction keeps this system strong by rendering it virtually invisible.
We talk and talk and talk about the horrific state of human culture and then talk some more about what needs to be changed. We go ‘round and ‘round in ever-tightening circles. But when will we dig deeper — as deep as we can go — to begin comprehending the many ways hierarchical power manifests and the many ways we choose to ignore and/or support it.
