And in the university, that is certainly no easy task, for each of you by virtue of being here will be deluged with opportunities to misname yourselves, to forget who you are, to forget where your real interests lie.
Make no mistake, you will be courted; and nothing neutralizes creativity quicker than tokenism.
This is a way in which social justice has perpetuated dominator culture:
We’ve used people according to the function or value to us instead of according to what they value, or who they are.
So even though they’ve been used in service of a lofty ideal, they’ve still been used, devalued and made to misname themselves.
