"The Wall Street protests makes me want to scream in some sense. There’s two things I’m tired of. I feel like in these mostly white left-led mobilizations there’s always a reference to slaves. ‘We’re slaves to bankers!’ I’m tired of people haphazardly throwing around what they think chattel slavery is and similarly you often hear people equate oppression with rape. Physical, sexual assault capitulated in that way to describe other kinds of oppression is not okay. It’s always these rape narratives or comparisons to slavery I find both really politically shortsighted and also politically dangerous."
