" Oppression is mystified when it pretends to be love ... An up-front oppressor says, 'I'm going to oppress the shit out of you.' One can hate such oppressors and struggle against them clearly and cleanly. This makes such oppression hard to enforce. Mystified oppression is much easier to enforce, because it tricks oppressed people into hating themselves and makes them feel guilty for not liking their oppression. It diverts energy that could be used toward liberation into futile struggles against one's own desires."
