Naming Hatred

The world is a place full of wonder, joy and Doctor Who, but is also a place where hatred bubbles beneath the surface. Violence and messed up power relationships are everywhere, and it’s scary. While feminism may not have the ability to change all of that, it gives names to this issues and acknowledges their existence. Once we see the great big shark of patriarchy, the constant da-dum of misogyny is a lot easier to deal with.

  1. This: “Once we see the great big shark of patriarchy, the constant da-dum of misogyny is a lot easier to deal with.” is the best/concise wording of the concept I believe I have ever seen.

  2. Thanks 🙂 I was having flashbacks to watching Jaws as a kid and it seemed appropriate.
