“Tell me what happens the first time you see a woman naked.”

“The first time you see a woman naked will not be like you imagined. There will be no love, no trust, no intimacy. You won’t even be in the same room as her.

You won’t get to smile as she undresses you and you undress her. You won’t get to calm her nerves with nerves of your own. You won’t get to kiss her, feeling her lips and the edge of her tongue. You won’t get to brush your fingers over the lace of her bra or count her ribs or feel her heartbeat.

The first time you see a woman naked you will be sitting in front of a computer screen watching someone play at intimacy and perform at sex. She will contort her body to please everyone in the room but her. You will watch this woman who is not a woman, pixelated and filtered and customized. She will come ready-made, like an order at a restaurant. The man on the screen will be bigger than you, rougher than you. He will teach you how to talk to her. He will teach you where to put your hands and he will teach you what you’re supposed to like. He will teach you to take what is yours.

You must unlearn this. You must unlearn this twisted sense of love. You must unlearn the definition of pleasure and intimacy you are being taught. Kill this idea of love, this idea of entitlement, this way of scarring one another.”

Josefina Fierro (1914–1998) was a Mexican American political activist from Calexico, California who fought for the rights of Mexican and Mexican American workers. She also played a key figure in the founding of the civil rights group “Congreso de Pueblos de Habla Española” and intervened in Washington, D.C. to end the unprovoked assaults of the Mexican American community in East L.A. and downtown Los Angeles during the Zoot Suit Riots.
In 1948 Fierro was accused of Communist affiliations by the California Committee on Un-American Activities, which led to her to being harassed by the CIA and having to move to Guaymas, Mexico to escape the government’s persecution. Fierro stayed in Mexico the rest of her life, where she passed away in 1998.
