"“Social Justice Warriors” is a term used often by these sort of people, and it’s a term whose pejorative use perplexes me, because aside from the source of its invention, it sounds like a really badass thing to be. I’d much rather label myself a Social Justice Warrior than a warrior for…whatever it is that these people are warriors for. Social justice is such an inherently positive thing - literally everyone benefits from greater equality - that it’s impossible to see its enemies as anything but sociopathic. Hatred of Social Justice Warriors can be seen as a broader hatred of social justice itself."
"Many women, I think, resist feminism because it is an agony to be fully conscious of the brutal misogyny which permeates culture, society, and all personal relationships."
"The three hobbies I’d encourage teenage girls to have are long country walks, to get some air in your lungs; masturbation; and the revolution. If you have those three things, you can’t go far wrong."

I like this moon thing. Auroras are nice and all, but the moon is very pretty. Are you maybe feeling a certain kinship with the moon as you wax toward full?
Perhaps. I’m due to pop on the 12th of October, but there’s a blood moon on the 8th so I keep telling people that’s what I’m aiming for, because that would be badass, but also possibly bad, if it means there’s competition for resources in the birthing wing.
The year I was born there was a full moon on October 31st, and my Pa kept predicating I would be born that day (even though it was a month early for my due date - I actually was born a few days earlier, the 28th.)
