The english language is full of euphemisms about the conditions of our lived reality. These euphemisms in and of themselves are a form of violence. To label this society as terroristic to marginalized bodies gets you labeled a radical, not a truth teller. A radical is considered a threat and insane for operating outside of the bounds of polite society.
There is a power in naming the truth of your experience… and as long as we keep naming things in euphemism, there is a part of our reality that nobody else has to confront, and therefore nobody else has to become uncomfortable or confront their own complicity.
I am a survivor of sexual terror. I am a survivor of physical violence, displacement violence, emotional, spiritual and psychic violence. I am a survivor of the terrorism of poverty, the violence of disbelonging, And a million other terrors, small and large.
And still I rise. And this makes me a Holy Terror.
