"Often in my lectures when I use the phrase “imperialist white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy” to describe our nation’s political system, audiences laugh. No one has ever explained why accurately naming this system is funny. The laughter is itself a weapon of patriarchal terrorism."

I was reminded of this quote when I saw the video of the awesome woman macing that horrendous guy in the convenience store. The way he laughed at her discomfort and anger, and how powerful that is as a tool of oppression.

People often make jokes about things they are scared of.
It’s why oppressed people laugh at their oppressors, but it’s also why oppressors think it’s hilarious when oppressed people stand up for themselves.

Leslie Morgan Steiner: Why domestic violence victims don’t leave …

I fucking hate it when people say the woman is stupid for staying with her abuser and it’d be so easy to leave. NO IT ISN’T.
