"Women's bodies are as celebrated and worshipped and exploited as ever, pressurized and glorified and commodified and this is relatively common knowledge and some of it is very good and some is very, very bad and insulting and stupid. Just like life."
-Mark Morford...who is brilliant

"I will choose what enters me, what becomes
of my flesh. Without choice, no politics,
no ethics lives. I am not your cornfield,
not your uranium mine, not your calf
for fattening, not your cow for milking.
You may not use me as your factory."
-Marge Piercey (Thanks Zorah!)

"Not only is another world possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing." -Arundhati Roy

"Free Speech is the right to yell "THEATRE!" in a crowded fire" -Abbie Hoffman

"Waking up today, on voting day, was much like Christmas morning, except I might not be able to open my presents for another week or two, and I might hate them... what's worse, even if I do hate them, I have to keep them." -Norma, re: Nov. 2nd

"How wonderful! that even
The passions, prejudices, interests,
That sway the meanest being--the weak touch
That moves the finest nerve
And in one human brain
Causes the faintest thought, becomes a link
In the great chain of Nature!" -Shelley's Queen Mab

"Long enough have you dream'd contemptible dreams,
Now I wash the gum before your eyes,
You must habit yourself to the dazzle of the light and of
moment of your life.

Long have you timidly waded holding a plank by the shore,
Now I will you to be a bold swimmer,
To jump off in the midst of the sea, rise again, nod to
me, shout,
and laughingly dash with your hair."

-Walt Whitman, "Song of Myself"

And i hear you saying
“subtle, sister,
less bite, more bark
you can make your point without leaving such a mark.
subtle, sister,
stop your seething,
i think we got it, i think we’re even:”

subtle like a penis pounding its target?
subtle like your hissing from across the street?

subtle like the binding on my sisters’ feet?
subtle like her belly raped with his semen,
draped in his fuck, funny,
doesn’t seem even.

See, sometimes anger’s subtle, stocked in metaphor
full of finesse and dressed in allure
yes, sometimes anger’s subtle, less rage than sad
leaking slow through spigots you didn’t know you had.
and sometimes it’s just

fuck you.
fuck you.
you see, and to me,

That’s poetry too.

-Subtle Sister, Alix Olson
