As a friend of mine once said, if you have too many grapes, you make wine. If you have too much wine, you throw a party. If you still have too much wine, you make vinegar. Fermentation turns scarcity and abundance on its head, belying easy categories of what is waste and what is too much.

their Dyke Manifesto is really cool though. In a time when many gays were pushing the line that we're "born this way" they explicitly recruit and used slogans like "every woman is a lesbian at heart".
In a time where the respectable gays where trying to assimilate and claiming that being gay isn't about sex, the LA said "[we] think sex is a daily libation, good energy for actions, crave, enjoy, explore, suffer from new ideas about relationships.
And they did tie it into class politics here too - "we demand universal healthcare and housing. we demand food and shelter for all homeless lesbians"

One thing that's really interesting to me about this is their "no abstract theoretical discussion" plank. The Avengers were absolutely correct that theoretical discussion without action is worthless and divisive, but it seems like they swung too far in the opposite direction of encouraging action without theory. The best case scenario of direct action without theoretical grounding is that it's ineffective, but the worst case is that the confusion can be co-opted by fascists - something history has shown us repeatedly.
Theory and practice are the two wings of a revolution movement - without both, it can never get off the ground!
