Revolutionary Lovers Guide — April 7, 2011

Revolutionary Lovers Guide

Revolution is about love. Love for justice, equality, humanity, all the species and the planet. It follows that revolutionaries are often passionate, open-minded and skilled lovers. But to be truly revolutionary, you must approach your personal relationships with the same determination to fight inequality that you bring to your political causes.

When the revolution comes, oppressive patriarchal norms and social hierarchies will crumble away and love will be free. In the meantime, love is often complicated and even revolutionary lovers can find themselves mirroring dominant and aggressive, or alternately, passive and submissive, behaviours from the society around them.

For this reason, and in response to numerous requests, Sisters of Resistance have created the Revolutionary Lovers Guide, which we hope will prove useful to you in creating healthy foundations for revolutionary romantic relationships.

The Basics: Learning/Unlearning | Respect | Communication & Active Listening | Openness, Honesty & Trust

Becoming Lovers and Making it Last: Conflict and Compromise | Sex | Non-Traditional Relationships
