This is my first exposure to hooks' book All About Love. It's fascinating. Here's what hooks thinks about love and commitment:

I'm laughing at the question, "Do you think it's possible to fall out of love?" Because the kind of love I'm writing about you don't fall into. It's really about knowing and communicating so love actually deepens through the effort we make to get to know someone. A major part of love is commitment. If we are committed to someone, if I'm committed to loving you, then it's not possible for me to 'fall out of love.' It's possible for me to change the nature of my commitment, or even to break that commitment, but most people do not break that commitment when they make a covenant with someone else about love. The people I love, I'm committed to loving for the rest of my life.


Come for the sensible relationship advice, stay for the implications for the civil rights movement. I need to buy this book. Thank you AC Slater.

The problem with this one is that there is no caption that is more ironically amusing than the actual scene.

Yes, all joshing aside, this is a chance to point to bell hooks and say "isn't she great" and she is. So much of what we now take as received wisdom was first articulated by her.

and she is

Yep.

This one bears repeating the full quote from which it's drawn:

“Emotional neglect lays the groundwork for the emotional numbing that helps boys feel better about being cut off. Eruptions of rage in boys are most often deemed normal, explained by the age-old justification for adolescent patriarchal misbehavior, "Boys will be boys." Patriarchy both creates the rage in boys and then contains it for later use, making it a resource to exploit later on as boys become men. As a national product, this rage can be garnered to further imperialism, hatred and oppression of women and men globally. This rage is needed if boys are to become men willing to travel around the world to fight wars without ever demanding that other ways of solving conflict can be found.”
