Why do women allow themselves to be called bitches? And why, here shortly, will people tell me I'm taking it too seriously? Nothing sacred. We're a divided people, demanding respect but giving none, reveling in liberty while abusing it in the name of free expression. Blithely reckless with words and actions as though there were no repercussions, until something offends us than it becomes an injustice.
"You want to free the world, free humanity, from oppression? Look inside, look sideways, look at the hidden violence of language. Never forget that language is where the other, parallel violence, the cruelty exercised on the body, originates."~Ariel Dorfman
