On Passivity

When you hit her, you hurt me,
because I feel her pain;
her suffering diminishes me.

When you buy her and use her,
you buy and use me;
because in lessening her value
you lessen my value too.

When you make her disposable,
you make me disposable;
dehumanising her
dehumanises me.


Look around.

We are all connected.
We are all human.
Whatever is allowed to be done to one
is permitted to be done to another.
Inactivity is collusion,
and political in itself.
