"As more people have found the courage to break through shame and speak about woundedness in their lives, we are now subjected to a mean-spirited cultural response, where all talk of woundedness is mocked. The belittling of anyone's attempt to name a context within which they were wounded, were made a victim, is a form of shaming. It is psychological terrorism. Shaming breaks our hearts. All individuals who are genuinely seeking well-being within a healing context realize that it is important to that process not to make being a victim a stance of pride or a location from which to simply blame others. We need to speak our shame and our pain courageously in order to recover. Addressing woundedness is not about blaming others; however, it does allow individuals who have been, and are, hurt to insist on accountability and responsibility both from themselves and from those who were the agents of their suffering as well as those who bore witness. Constructive confrontation aids our healing." -bell hooks #wip #sketch .

“El racismo abunda en la literatura de las feministas blancas, reforzando la supremacía blanca y negando la posibilidad de que las mujeres se vinculen políticamente atravesando las fronteras étnicas y raciales.”

Texto: Mujeres negras. Dar forma a la teoría feminista.
Autora: Bell Hooks

📚 “Visionary feminism is a wise and loving politics. It is rooted in the love of male and female being, refusing to privilege one over the other. The soul of feminist politics is the commitment to ending patriarchal domination of women and men, girls and boys. Love cannot exist in any relationship that is based on domination and coercion. Males cannot love themselves in patriarchal culture if their very self-definition relies on submission to patriarchal rules. When men embrace feminist thinking and practice, which emphasizes the value of mutual growth and self-actualization in all relationships, their emotional well-being will be enhanced. A genuine feminist politics always brings us from bondage to freedom, from lovelessness to loving.” 📚 #bellhooks #feminismisforeverybody

How can I support WOC in my community with my privilege?
This question is obviously an important one. I have to be aware enough to shed all ideas of feeling blamed/guilty for the current status of inequity in order to be able to fully show up to it. .
Sitting with the perspective that Bell Hooks offers, talking with WOC friends, analyzing my involvement with West African dance community in NYC, it is clear that I need to be more sensitive, and not in a shy way, but in a receptive way, to understand better how the color of my skin might be triggering or how it might be better put to use.
I am being present with this question and the emotional responses that I have to it and I don’t have a clear offering to respond to it. But like I guide my clients to when they get too far ahead of themselves, don’t see the answer and want to give up or slip back into old patterns, I need to sit with it. I need to write it down (I have) and keep it at the front of my mind. I need to continue to discuss it with people around me. I need to consider, what resources are available to me to widen my understanding? Who, what, where, when? How can I do this better?
I need to do the internal work, support it with the external resources and am ready to grow into an answer.

“This is my oppressor’s language, yet I need it to talk to you.” ———
I was talking to an English teacher at work, and we were wondering why we are dedicating our time to teaching kids English; it’s their second language and they can ‘get by’ with Urdu.
We understand that the Pakistani education system is structured in such a way that students need English to go to certain universities and to access certain opportunities. But we came to the conclusion that what’s important to us is that our students have access to books, ideas, thoughts, and movements from the world over - and that will only be possible when they can read and communicate in English. Most work gets translated in English, including ideas and movements on social media, and not much gets translated in Urdu.
Hooks talks about the black vernacular speech, and I got to thinking if our version of roman Urdu and code switching between English and Urdu is our form of resistance from standard English; our “counter-language” that helps us “liberate ourselves in language”. This may be, but unfortunately I still have to teach my students standard English. Other forms of English are not acceptable in schools and universities in the country. It’s either Urdu or English, or one of the regional languages.
Standard English is needed if one wants to be part of the larger audience, and in order to be heard by a more inclusive audience. ———-
“A multicultural society... uses standard English as a weapon to silence and censor”. ——-

Sometimes people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power — not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.” — Bell Hooks

“Self-love is the foundation of our loving practice. Without it our other efforts to love fail. Giving ourselves love we provide our inner being with the opportunity to have the unconditional love we may have always longed to receive from someone else.”

It has long been held that “women like to gossip.” But have we stopped to think where this stereotype comes from? #bellhooks has, in her book #allaboutlove . The suppression of the #voice of #women in #changeleading settings has made many women fearful of speaking their minds openly. This fear has only begun to subside. More work is to be done. Women must find the strength and courage to speak out when those around them may shoot them down. And men must learn to become allies: creating space for women to speak their #truth : defending opinions that are often different from their own. And the next time someone jokes about how “women like to gossip,” perhaps take the opportunity to respectfully and calmly explain where this stereotype came from. Only peaceful education has the power to change mindsets. Those who are ready for truth will listen and take this new knowledge to heart. 🙏🏽💚
