Lauredhel, on Pondering power and resistance in response to attacks on the utility of feminist blogdom:
Speech isn’t pointless. Speech isn’t inherently inferior to action. Speech doesn’t preclude action, and, what’s more, in the case of embedded often-impalpable power structures , speech IS action. Speech is the stripping of the fluffy coat to expose the festering sores; the powdering of the doorknob fingerprints to reveal the culprits; the laser beam revealing the toxic dust; the warm embrace of the lacerated resistor who thought she was all alone in the world.
