I don't foresee problems, but could someone please confirm that this was copied with permission from a Lesbian Avengers site? --Andrew 01:29, May 10, 2004 (UTC)

The text was copied (and slightly adapted) from [1]. I didn't see a copyright notice on the site, and the L.A. seem like a group who would both welcome any kind of publicity and not care about copyrights anyway. But just in case, I have sent an email to the contact address listed on that site requesting permission to use the text on WP. -- Kimiko 09:59, 10 May 2004 (UTC)

personal comment[edit]

Personal comment transferred from the page

Herstory has it that the chant "The fire will not consume us, we take it and make it our own" was developed in response to the 1992 firebombing of a lesbian and gay man (housemates) in Oregon during the first "No on 9" campaign. This was verified on the DC Avenger's website, and through the oral herstory told to this Oregon Avenger!

Is that the origin of the fireeating thing? BTW, there aren't any active Lesbian Avengers in Oregon anymore. It sort of died-- possibly because the group was perceived as being anti-male. --208.65.188.23 (talk) 05:10, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

a press-release[edit]

This Wikipedia entry is, effectively, a press-release and can in no way be described as that you would expect to find in an encyclopedia. by 212.84.103.23

Disagree. It certainly could be improved but the tone does not seem "press releasy" to me. Benjiboi 01:30, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
It is overwhelmingly self-agrandizing. Sounds like a press release to me. 137.155.191.51 (talk) 22:13, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Overwhelmingly? Perhaps the word famously in "They famously intervened" is a bit much, but is there anything else that goes beyond direct statements of purpose and history? 75.101.29.66 (talk) 06:12, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
