So you say “Capitalism is the only system that works?”

This is such a ridiculously good way to show how it all ‘works.’ Amazing shot.

At age nine, Robert Lutece informs his mother that he plans to become a scientist. She smoothes his hair back and kisses his forehead and tells him that he is the most intelligent boy in the world – that for him, nothing is impossible. The world is his oyster. For his birthday he receives a high-quality microscope and a bookshelf brimming with brand new science textbooks.

At age nine, Rosalind Lutece informs her mother that she plans to become a scientist. Her mother laughs and pats her on the shoulder – tells her that laboratories are hardly the place for a young lady like herself. Science is dangerous work, after all. Bold aspirations are unseemly. For her birthday she receives a new pair of shoes and a green ribbon for her hair, which she promptly throws in the garbage.

The only difference between them is a chromosome, Rosalind says. But a chromosome, it seems, can make all the difference in the world.

"It doesn’t much matter what line of argument you take as a woman. If you venture into traditional male territory, the abuse comes anyway. It’s not what you say that prompts it—it’s the fact that you are saying it."

The Tories’ idea of what constitutes “modern politics”.

Emma Watson is a pretty stellar individual. Given the opportunity, she gave an amazing speech to hundreds, advocating for gender equality, as well as a movement that debunked any potential “man-hating” notion that the anti-feminists would otherwise use. And of course, the video was seen by hundreds of thousands of individuals, many of them being men and boys who are now avidly supporting HeForShe.

I am loving the overflow of support for the #HeForShe campaign, which advocates gender equality in all ways possible. And as such, I am hating the outburst of those who cry foul, who threaten the campaign, but also Emma Watson with potential slander.

Nevertheless, the HeForShe campaign continues to grow stronger, fuller, and more realized by a growing community that believes in gender equality. I like the idea of us all being treated as human beings, and not anything less than that.
