Read, Write, Resist! 

Let’s have an activist hermeneutic–or, say, hermeneutics as praxis. Let’s read the moments that surround us, that oppress us, and that also enable us to be oppositional. The kinds of readings that merely generate self-justifying, self-satisfying ‘pleasures of the text’ (we ain’t opposed to pleasure, though–hell no!), while fetishizing textuality and thereby disabling activism, don’t interest us. So, yeah, let’s read, write, resist by all means.
