I enjoyed and was challenged by many of the chapters. I think there is still much to say about the potential for activism, especially as degradation and deprivation of pleasure are dominant features of the white supremacist, male-dominated society we live in.

This books has already changed the way I've been doing advocacy work. We're going to make this movement as pleasurable and as sustainable as possible!

Ngl Leta really hyped this one up, and it feels like a betrayal giving it anything less than 5 stars. It has its highs and lows, and felt a little disjointed to me. The overall message of existing in this world and living life by embracing the things that bring you pleasure is such an important sentiment, though, and not a concept I had heard of before.

These writings expanded my emotional world, and I suspect they will do the same for anyone who engages with them.
