One Feminist Online Media Mantrafesto*

Access begs literacy
Literacy initiates production
Mass production fosters popularity

Popularity produces virality
Virality forecloses context, shared interests and vocabulary, and local community
Community is built upon safety

Safety fosters the sharing of voice and responsibility
Shared responsibility is necessary for democracy
Democracy protects vulnerability

Vulnerability forecloses visibility
Visibility demands a safe space
Safe spaces need rules and hierarchies

Rules and hierarchies require transparency and process
Process is built upon equal voices
All voices want a body

A body needs to be visible
Visibility allows for warranting
Warranting insures civility and positionality

Positionality fosters political community
Political communities demand spaces, both virtual and real
Spaces demand access
