Y’all I got distracted and forgot to tell you the most brilliant thing that Rachel from Women’s Health News said to me at lunch on Friday.
We were talking about feminism and I was saying to her how I have a hard time figuring out how to respond when folks are like, “Well, it’s just always been that way. You can’t expect things to change.” And she said this awesome thing: “We used to shit in the same rivers we drank out of. Eventually, we figured out that it was making us sick, so we changed.”
And it’s true. No one says, “Well, people drank from feces-laden water for thousands of years, so I’m just going to put a straw in the toilet and enjoy.”
