    Feminism is a choice, and if a woman does not want to be a feminist, that is her right, but it is still my responsibility to fight for her rights

    We have to be more interested in making things better than just being right, or interesting, or funny.

    ike most people, I’m full of contradictions, but I also don’t want to be treated like shit for being a woman.

    My favorite definition of “feminist” is one offered by Su, an Australian woman who, when interviewed for Kathy Bail’s 1996 anthology DIY Feminism, said feminists are “just women who don’t want to be treated like shit.”

    Feminism has given me peace. Feminism has given me guiding principles for how I write, how I read, how I live. I do stray from these principles, but I also know it’s okay when I do not live up to my best feminist self.

    I’m more interested in a show called Grown Women about a group of friends who finally have great jobs and pay all their bills in a timely manner but don’t have any savings and still deal with sloppy love lives and hangovers on Monday morning at work.

    I love being with someone who is endlessly interesting because we are so different. Wanting to belong to people or a person is not about finding a mirror image of myself.

    Luck and loneliness, it would seem, are very compatible.

    Movies, more often than not, tell the stories of men as if men’s stories are the only stories that matter
    Yatzel Roldánhas quoted3 years ago
    You don’t necessarily have to do anything once you acknowledge your privilege. You don’t have to apologize for it. You need to understand the extent of your privilege, the consequences of your privilege, and remain aware that people who are different from you move through and experience the world in ways you might never know anything about. They might endure situations you can never know anything about. You could, however, use that privilege for the greater good—to try to level the playing field for everyone, to work for social justice, to bring attention to how those without certain privileges are disenfranchised. We’ve seen what the hoarding of privilege has done, and the results are shameful.

    Must we satisfy our need to be heard and seen by preventing anyone else from being heard and seen

    We would live in a world of silence if the only people who were allowed to write or speak from experience or about difference were those absolutely without privilege
    Liz Lombrizhas quoted3 months ago
    the acknowledgment of my privilege is not a denial of the ways I have been and am marginalized, the ways I have suffered
    Liz Lombrizhas quoted3 months ago
    We tend to believe that accusations of privilege imply we have it easy, which we resent because life is hard for nearly everyone

    in which my privilege hasn’t magically rescued me from a world of hurt.
    Liz Lombrizhas quoted3 months ago
    The problem is, cultural critics talk about privilege with such alarming frequency and in such empty ways, we have diluted the word’s meaning. When people wield the word “privilege,” it tends to fall on deaf ears because we hear that word so damn much it has become white noise.
