And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.
Also in a mixed-gender group, when women talk 25% of the time or less, it’s seen as being equally balanced. If women talk between 25% and 50% of the time, they are seen as “dominating the conversation.” One of the most mind-bending statistics I ever read in college.
celebrities should be allowed to tweet ‘just wanna be left alone today, okay guys?’ and then they should be able to go out to the pools or shopping or just out for coffee and a movie with their friends/family without being swamped, but SOME days they should tweet ‘CATCH ME IF U CAN’ and its just like hey where the fuck is johnny depp or niall horan or brad pitt free autographs to those who find them. i think its a good idea obama sign it into law
Came across this Hallmark card at Walgreens tonight.. I had to do a double take. First time I’ve seen a lesbian Mother’s Day card. :)
