The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be… The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.

"MLK Jr

You call me an extremist to insult me. I say it puts me in good company. 

but did MLK advocate the oppressed being hateful or behaving hatefully towards their oppressors, necessarily? Like he said, it depends on the KIND of extremist you choose to be, fandomsandfeminism.

Go read his Letter from Birmingham Jail. MLK did not advocate people coddle those who benefit from their oppression. He has some pretty damning things to say about white people, ESPECIALLY white moderates who pulled tone argument bullshit. 

"I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."

If you’re a woman in academia (or any structure of power dominated by men),

(okay, not always, but oh, so often)

And unfortunately, there’s really no basis for this crap.

But we’re here to change the system:

So if anyone tries to tell you or make you feel that you are less because you’re a woman, tell them this:

Fuck sexism.

#come and see the sexism inherent in the system,
