Resisting the belief that safety is found in the arms of the law or at the feet of the State--

Through an abolitionist analysis they detonate the LGBT mainstream's argument that justice hinges on imprisoning the "correct" bodies and reaffirm that imprisonment itself is the antagonism of our collective liberation.
