“Real equality is when women have the right to be as drunk and stupid as men.”
Jessica Valenti, 24th October, guardianonline.
It’s no wonder young women don’t identify with feminism when it’s dressed in this kind of unattractive, clumsy costume.
Forcing equality, kicking and screaming, into the same ballpark as date rape, is the intellectual equivalent of making me wear one of those meringue wedding dresses for a joke.
Shocking at first. Screamingly funny for the next ten seconds, until everyone realises I’m not laughing. Then, downright uncomfortable for the remainder of the evening, until everyone with a modicum of empathy leaves, feeling truly ashamed of themselves.
