random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
  We believe that the Black liberation movement will only be successful and principled when it consciously, consistently, and aggressively fights against patriarchy (the assumption that men should naturally dominate the family and by extension organizations, institutions, and society); misogyny (the hateful and violent treatment and depiction of women); sexism (the institutional subordination of women); and rigid and narrow definitions of masculinity, femininity and family that compromise the humanity of women, children and men. A critical part of our Black feminist vision is the militant opposition to homophobia (fear, animosity, discrimination and violence against lesbians, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people) and heterosexism (the privileges, recognition and rights enjoyed only by heterosexuals and the assumption that heterosexuality is the only "normal" sexual identity).
