You: Set the patriarchy on fire and throw it over a cliff.
Me: I love women.
You: I’m obsessed with women.
Me: I feel so sorry for people who aren’t women.
You: Women are not appreciated enough.
Me: I really appreciate women. More than I appreciate myself.
You: Even though you ARE a woman.
You: You see, that’s because you’ve been conditioned not to appreciate yourself.
Me: Yes, as a feminist, I know that.
You: Your appreciation needs to start with yourself. THAT is feminism.
Me: You know, if a man had said what you just said, I’d be angry.
You: Of course you would.
Me: But because you’re a woman, I just really appreciate it.
You: I really appreciate you saying that.
Me: I wish I was a member of Pussy Riot.
You: We are all members of Pussy Riot.
Me: Just… you know… Simone de Beauvoir.
You: I mean… Eleanor Roosevelt.
Me: Don’t even get me started on Hillary Clinton.
You: YASSSSSS, HILLARY.
Me: Gloria Steinem…
You: Gloria Gaynor…
Me: We WILL survive.
You: You know what? I can wear pink if I like.
Me: I love pink. I won’t be oppressed by pink.
You: I wear pink when I vote.
Me: I LOVE VOTING.
You: Thank you for everything, Emmeline.
Me: Thank you for giving me ME.
You: Thank you ME for giving me me.
Me: Thank you you for giving you you.
You: That’s so beautiful. Thank YOU.
Me: I feel very connected to my own strength and to your strength.
You: Your strength makes me stronger.
Me: I would be so oppressed without your strength.
You: I would be dead without your strength.
Me: That’s a very powerful thing to say.
You: Thank you for respecting my power.
Me: My power is so grateful for the recognition from your power.
You: My power would like to pay for this lunch we have just had.
Me: I love how you just made that powerful decision.
