"There’s a paradox in thinking that you’re better than other girls, when your whole reason for feeling that way is because you think your gender is so inherently inferior that you want to dis-identify with being a girl altogether."
More Than Words: Tomboys R Us
THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].”

When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
“Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
That’s it. That’s it right there.

What’s so hilarious is comics who make these horrible rape jokes, say they’re edgy. There’s nothing edgy about living in America as a white man and harassing women. That’s really the least edgy thing you can do. You’re not a rebel by going along with that. Comics have so much they can come together on. We don’t have health insurance. We don’t have a union, but somehow when rape jokes are brought up, all the comics in the universe find something they agree on, so the black comics and the gay comics and the white comics they all unite and say rape jokes are funny. It’s bullshit. I think it’s lazy and it’s mean.
I believe in freedom of speech. Your freedom of speech means that you can joke about anything you want. My freedom of speech means that I don’t have to laugh at it. Everyone was so upset about being censored, about losing their freedom of speech. Forget freedom of speech; they lost their minds."
