Becoming some-one vs some-thing

“It is true, and very much to the point, that women are objects, commodities, some deemed more expensive than others - but it is only by asserting one’s humanness every time, in all situations, that one becomes someone as opposed to something. That, after all, is the core of our struggle.”

– Andrea Dworkin, “Woman Hating”
