While our generation uses the term “intersectionality,” we oftentimes forget that we need to actively make connections, even to bodies that don’t look like our own.

Being a member of an oppressed class does not exempt you from being oppressive to others. We should refrain from getting too comfortable talking only of our own specific oppression.

Animal bodies endure some of the most grotesque, egregious forms of abuse in our modern capitalist system and we should consider them in our activism.
