Ursula K. Le Guin on subversive speech #quote #whosaidthat #curlmytoes

How much do I love Ursula K. Le Guin, let me count the ways…

I know that many men and even women are afraid and angry when women do speak, because in this barbaric society, when women
speak truly, they speak subversively–they can’t help it: if you’re underneath, if you’re kept down, you break out, you subvert. We are volcanoes. When we women ofer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.

Ursula K. Le Guin

Ms. Le Guin wrote so many brilliant things over her [x] years with us; I think her most brilliant piece is her essay “Introducing Myself” in the collection  The Wave in the Mind: Talks and Essays on the Writer, the Reader, and the Imagination (public library), of which you can get a deep taste on Brainpickings.org: Ursula K. Le Guin “On Being a Man.”
