"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. . . [F]oreigners. . . The Marxist professors and structural feminists. . [W]e discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy. . . [W]e were resisting bourgeois society's stifling conventions. We weren't indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated."
