What Oppression Is

The oppressive relationships go one way. It is nonsense to say that . . . men and women oppress each other because they bang each other with their records [distress recordings]. That’s not oppression. Oppression is the organized, institutionalized mistreatment one way. There is a difference. I said this before. If one person is beating the other with a stick, both are degraded by the act. But there is a huge difference between the different ends of the stick.
