“Women are born with pain built-in. It’s our physical destiny: period pain, sore boobs, childbirth, you know. We carry it within ourselves throughout our lives. Men don’t. They have to seek it out. They invent all these gods and demons and things just so they can feel guilty about things, which is something we just do naturally. Women just deal with it. Men, as a gender, have to invent things just so they can get some guilt-free pain.”

“Hair is everything. The difference between a good day and a bad day. We’re meant to think that it’s a symbol of power, that it’s a symbol of fertility. Some people are exploited for it and it pays your fucking bills.”

“Most people, when you tell them you’re a feminist, they reply, ‘Do you hate men?’ And it’s tempting to say, ‘Yes, that’s why I hold them down every night so they can’t get away and incinerate puppies’.
