Movements Need Symbols: In Defense of Pussyhats
I wrote a post about a bad Washington Post article and felt like putting it on Medium instead of my blog, maybe because of all the profanity involved!

“We will never, ever survive these next four or eight years if we don’t allow ourselves to have a little fucking fun. I mean, we might survive in the literal sense, if we are privileged and don’t have any disabilities or illnesses for which we’re about to lose our insurance coverage and so on, but it won’t be survival in the real sense. It won’t be a survival of the spirit. It won’t be a survival of our passion, our creativity, our hope, our sensuality, our vulnerability.

We can’t turn every protest into a funeral march just because they’re trying to kill us. It’s too damn soon for that. They haven’t killed us yet.”
