Article Title

Love, Change


Mari Matsuda


Catharine MacKinnon once chose the title "Not A Moral Issue," to separate obscenity claims from subordination claims in her response to pornography.' MacKinnon's reminder: it's about power, is my starting point, in what for me IS a moral issue. This is morality: to include all as human and entitled to the deepest love and care. This is the distillation of everything I fight for as a feminist, a critical race theorist, and a peace activist. Since we are at war, having sent to date 1,500 U.S. soldiers off to die, speaking against war and for peace is a current imperative. Then comes this invitation to speak as a critical race theorist on the subject of same-sex marriage.
