Children's Lives Matter

Dr. Stacey Patton sums this up perfectly:

“Generations of scholars and activists have examined race, gender, class and sexuality as categories of oppression. They have not extended the same courtesy to the category of childhood, to the oppressions and sufferings of children. But the fact is you can’t reproduce any order of societal oppression based on race, gender, class or sexuality without first destroying each generation of young people as soon as they enter the world.” ~ Dr. Stacey Patton

“I would rather live in a society which treated children as adults than one which treated adults as children.” ~ Lizard
