The Masters’ Tools – by @CominternQueer – Thread Reader App

Audre Lorde’s “The masters tools will never bring down the masters house” gotta be one of the most misquoted and misapplied quotes of all time.🧵 (1/16)First and foremost, Audre Lorde was a self avowed communist. She spent time in the Soviet Union and wrote an essay about it. She was a feminist but her analysis and critique of society, culture, and the state was always rooted in dialectics. (2/16)In her essay “The Master’s Tools,” Audre critiques the racist, homophobic, & imperialist white feminist movement of the 1970s. She’s blasting white women clamoring for freedom from patriarchy while embracing racism, cissexism, homophobia, & western exceptionalism. (3/16)
