Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’

Why I love her and why you should too.

It’s disgusting. “I have a right to your naked body or images that you’ve sent to your husband, or lover.” It’s disgusting. It’s this violent, abusive violation of womanhood—of divine womanhood. It’s violent, and it’s misogynistic, and it’s revolting…..There’s a guy now taking these pictures and putting them up in an art gallery. What fucking right does he have to do that? It’s absolutely revolting.

  • I'm in my father's class at my high school. He said this today:
  • Him: As some of you may not know, I'm a feminist.
  • class: *laughs*
  • Him: No, really, I am.
  • Class: *laughs again*
  • Him: Why is that funny?
  • Asshole: Because you're a man, and you shouldn't think that way.
  • Him: Well why not?
  • Asshole: I dunno that's just the way that is.
  • Him: I'm a feminist because of my wife. She and I have the EXACT same job. Yet, I make more than her.
  • Class: *laughs*
  • Him: Why is that funny? Shouldn't women be paid equally as men?
  • Same Asshole: No, they're supposed to be in the kitchen.
  • Him: *slams fist on asshole's desk* Why?
  • Asshole: Because that's how it is.
  • Him: Why?
  • Asshole: That's their job.
  • Him: Why?
  • Asshole: *can't come up with another answer*
  • Him: I'm a feminist because my wife has the exact same job, gets less pay, and with that, I can barely support my three children. If she got paid as much as me, life would be a bit easier for all of us.
  • *note, my mother is a teacher like my father*
  • Him: Women gave birth to us, and now, here in the state of Michigan, they can't even have their own rights? It's 2014 people! Grow up or get out of my class.
  • Class: *silence*
  • Him: Now.. Louis XVI
