If men aren’t allowed to have an opinion on abortion, then they shouldn’t have to contribute to federal funding of breast cancer research.

"if i cant control a woman’s body, then i want that body to die"

(p.s. anyone can get breast cancer)

“Until the Canadian government recognizes the root causes of violence against Indigenous women, their so-called ‘action plan’ will never succeed. […]

This is a Canadian problem, not solely a First Nations problem.

We need to unpack the patriarchal, racist, and colonial mentalities of Canadian society to ultimately address the reasons why Indigenous women’s lives are not valued in Canadian society as much as the lives of white women.

We need to hold those who perpetrate violence against women accountable.

To argue on behalf of indigenous nationhood within the dominant Western paradigm is self-defeating. To frame the struggle to achieve justice in terms of indigenous “claims” against the state is implicitly to accept the fiction of state.

[…]

The mythology of the state is hegemonic, and the struggle for justice would be better served by undermining the myth of state sovereignty than by carving out a small and dependent space for indigenous peoples within it.

If you don’t have a copy of Taiaiake Alfred’s ‘Peace, Power, Righteousness - an Indigenous Manifesto’, you need to head to your local bookshop asap. This book is mind-blowing and a great help in forming one’s own thoughts and theories on decolonisation.
