Tiptree on oppression

images-2

“One of the things I learned was to keep my ears open when I heard any group of people described as:

Childish

Emotional
Incapable of reason
Happy when labouring unpaid
Given to artistic expression rather than thought
Excessively compassionate and vicious
Excessively loyal and treacherous
Excessively cowardly and murderous
Requiring leadership for their own good

And

Supremely content with their lot unless stirred up by outside agitators.”  (Letter to Joanna Russ, Aug/September 1973, p. 2)
