Quote of the Month

From Zuska:
You are not supposed to notice sexist behavior, and everything in our society is carefully designed to help you understand and accept it as natural and just the way things are and evolution and the battle of the sexes and God's will and girls like pink and boys love trucks and men are better at spatial hoo hah and women are so verbal and boys will be boys and act like a lady and don't be a slut and men can't help themselves and blah blah blah. If you should, by some amazing effort of will and education, manage to pull the curtain aside, there will be a great show of smoke and fire and booming voices declaiming from a huge green glaring disembodied head "pay no attention to that patriarchy behind the curtain!" Because, well, you might notice that it's a humbug.

Bravo Kea!
I guess that was a man :) His toes was sensitive :)

It is very odd that big, strong men with much 'power of the world' is so afraid of small women with 'power of the words'. As words was more powerful and more dangerous?

You have guts.
