I’m not going to pat anyone on the back…I’m not going to enable them in the misguided notion that our experiences are identical—-because they’re not. Black women deserve spaces where we can be experts on ourselves, and we should protect them fiercely. And while we are protecting them, it does not mean that we are dismissing someone else’s experience. That doesn’t mean that we are silencing anybody else. But it does mean that we have to push people to think more critically about race and gender and sexuality…

My life and my body cannot be community property because my oppression is not community property…If you are privileged and entering a space for the marginalized, you should do so with the intention to use some of that empathetic energy to dismantle oppression…

Respect the space.
