I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where the two mutually inspire each other to live - if I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.Hayao Miyazaki

Absolutely lovely but I had such a hard time reading these stories in one shot. I am left wondering if I wouldn't have preferred reading the stories gradually as they were published.

Jill Collins and 22 other people liked Ridley's review of How to Be a Woman:
How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
" Has an appalling case of unpacked privilege. Dropping "tranny" and "retard" in this book is just the tip of her shitty iceberg.

Newsflash: feminism that doesn't advocate for ALL women is no better than patriarchy. "

Margaret Atwood
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

Margaret Atwood
“And yet it disturbs me to learn I have hurt someone unintentionally. I want all my hurts to be intentional.”
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eye
