Manarchist Book Review: Bash Back! Queer Ultraviolence
<table><tr><td>From <a href="http://latfmanarchists.tumblr.com/post/21607392375/manarchist-book-revie... MANnarchists (blog)</a>
Recently, those of us at LATFM had the displeasure of coming across what is surely one of the most manarchist publications in years. The volume, entitled, Bash Back!: Queer Ultraviolence is an anthology of writing by straight white men who are pretending to be women, people of color, and queers in order to justify their violent lack of responsibility and consensus-breaking. From using the master’s violence to dismantle the master’s house to attacking the important work that feminist organizers have been doing for years, this book stops at nothing to slander and defame real community organizers and affected communities.
There has been a nationwide tour for the book in which two white men have traveled from city-to-city, spreading their macho anti-feminist vitriol everywhere they go, even having the nerve to claim that they’re “queers”. But we know that queers are nonviolent, restorative-justice advocates that just want to make society more inclusive, not angry nihilist dude-bros that want to break windows with their dicks. Don’t you know queers are supposed to be sad puppy dogs who cry about their hurt feelings instead of fighting back and engage in street theater once a year to tell the capitalists who’s boss? You really need to work on your shit, Tegan, Fray, and the rest of you manarchists who contributed to BB!: Queer Ultraviolence!</td><td><img title="Only thing worse than a hope blocer" src="http://anarchistnews.org/files/pictures/2009/bashback.jpg"></td></tr></t...
