How many pro-lifers does it take to change a lightbulb? Six. Two to screw in the bulb and four to testify that it was lit from the moment they began screwing.
-Joke book quoted by august-songs (via theoxie)
The effect on men has been very bad, too, of the omission of women’s history, because men have been given the impression that they’re much more important in the world than they actually are. It has fostered illusions of grandeur in every man that are unwarranted. If you can think as a man that everything great in the world and its civilization was created by men, then naturally you have to look down on women. And naturally, you have to have different aspirations for your sons and for your daughters.
