Today, an author on racism in Italy suggested “education” as an answer to combat the problem. I would contest such a suggestion. I know too many well-educated people who are racist and/or homophobic. I cannot understand how they even think that way. Perhaps my opinion doesn’t matter, but as in the argument by Caroline Criado-Perez against Naomi Wolf’s bashing statement, non-normative behaviour is always undermined, rejected, considered unimportant, but it doesn’t mean you stop.
You don’t let this illusion of continuity maintain itself.
You challenge it through protests. I would suggest militant.
