Anti-oppressions of any kind are not supposed to be about “empowerment”, they’re supposed to be about liberation from institutional, systemic, oppressive, imperialist, abusive structures. Going for “empowerment” that works by participation in the structure that oppresses people does NOT liberate them, it is not anti-oppression, it is assimilation. And assimilation can be short-term survival, but it is not revolutionary on any large scale, it is not anti-oppression in any large scale. Do not conflate the two.
