This episode is dropping on Valentine's Day, so we’re gonna talk about love. Although I haven't finished the book "All About Love" by bell hooks yet, I had to share how this book is already changing and reinforcing many of my ideas about love. I share the three things that stood out the most for me this far. This is not a video about romantic love, it is a critique of how we have been taught love, and how breaking out of White Supremacist, patriarchal, capitalist ideas will make us all better people. WTF is Ms. Vixen?
