Suggested keywords to define **please UNDERLINE in your post
solidarity, praxis, communities of care, mutual aid, feminist consciousness, justice, feminist killjoy, “theory” (as discussed by bell hooks), culture of domination, love ethic

bell hooks argues in “Love as the Practice of Freedom” that A culture of domination is anti-love. It requires violence to sustain itself. To choose love is to go against the prevailing values of the culture.” (3) Can you think of some examples of how American culture might be anti-love in the sense that bell hooks is suggesting? How do you think American cultural beliefs about violence as discussed in prior lectures relates to the US’s cultural beliefs about love? How does our culture decide who “deserves” things like love, care, etc.? (tip: consider for example how different people in this country react to the idea of universal housing)
