Black Feminist Thought is the best book ever. Everyone should read it,etc.

Yet more dumbasses who call the cops on 6 year olds. Shame! But the truth of the matter is that I can't do anything about this. I couldn't stop the war either. We can't even deal with infant mortality here. We can try, but while we're trying, let's not have taboos on what we can or can not discuss as feminists. There will always be something more important. Sure, maybe today we can't talk about how punching a woman dead in the head while fucking her may not be the best role model for young men. Then tomorrow, we can't talk about how in advertising black women are invisible or how dominant images of black women's sexuality affect our lives. Heck, one day, even honor killings in Iraq will be deemed unimportant- abortion rights already are considered unimportant special issues that distract from the important ones.
