When we view epidemic physical and psychological violence as community problems, we see that policing and restorative justice are completely at odds with one another.

.تَمَزَّقْتُ عِدَّةَ مَراتّ
.إذاً
هذا مَا يَدُلُ عَنّي شَيْأً
سِوَى
أَنَّنِي اَعِيشُ في
.حُروب
-
i fell apart many times.
so.
what does that say about me
besides
i live through
wars.

As all advocates of feminist politics know most people do not understand sexism or if they do they think it is not a problem. Masses of people think that feminism is always and only about women seeking to be equal to men. And a huge majority of these folks think feminism is anti-male. Their misunderstanding of feminist politics reflects the reality that most folks learn about feminism from patriarchal mass media.
