"As a young girl, I was sexually precocious with poor boundaries. I hung around with strange older men because I wanted their attention, and thusly, their love. As a young adult, I drank and used drugs to the point of blackout, went strange places with strange people, walked alone late at night without my wits about me. Still, the only times I was raped were when the man I was with was a rapist." ---Emily of XO Jane, on her Project Unbreakable submission

We teach girls shame. ‘Close your legs!’ ‘Cover yourself!’ We make them feel as though by being born female, they are already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think… they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an artform." — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, TedxEuston #quotes #feminism

“What’s the worst possible thing you can call a woman? Don’t hold back, now. You’re probably thinking of words like slut, whore, bitch, cunt (I told you not to hold back!), skank. Now, what are the worst things you can call a guy? Fag, bitch, pussy. I’ve even heard the term “mangina.” Notice anything? The worst thing you can call a girl is a girl. The worst thing you can call a guy is a girl. Being a woman is the ultimate insult, now tell me that’s not royally fucked up.” ― Jessica Valenti.

For the men who don't get feminism - here's a bit of role-reversal.
