"#19) If I had to sum up all of what feminism taught me in one sentence it’s this. Women saying — We’ve seen men. We know men. And we love men. We see that after they hurt they weep for the ways in which they’ve hurt people. And we see your responsibility. Help us fix it. Within yourself. And outside yourself.
