„Seriously though, some of the feminist advice given to women is borderline psychopathic. You know, like, “Never take ‘no’ for an answer! Always take what you want!”“

—  Natalie Wynn, ContraPoints

This is like rapist advice.

„Christianity and socialism alike, in fact, prescribe a society dedicated to the proposition that all men, women, and children are created equal and shall not starve.“

—  Kurt Vonnegut, livro A Man Without a Country

A Man Without a Country (2005)
Contexto: Socialism is no more an evil word than Christianity. Socialism no more prescribed Joseph Stalin and his secret police and shuttered churches than Christianity prescribed the Spanish Inquisition. Christianity and socialism alike, in fact, prescribe a society dedicated to the proposition that all men, women, and children are created equal and shall not starve.

„To people who've been looked at and considered beautiful, particularly women who relied on it so much… age is quite a challenge. The thing which you've always used, a power, is taken away from you.“

„I have always maintained that no nation can ever be worthy of its existence that cannot take its women along with the men. No struggle can ever succeed without women participating side by side with men.“

—  Muhammad Ali Jinnah Founder and 1st Governor General of Pakistan 1876 - 1948

Speech at Islamia College for women (25 March 1940)
Contexto: I have always maintained that no nation can ever be worthy of its existence that cannot take its women along with the men. No struggle can ever succeed without women participating side by side with men. There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women.

„But don't rely on men and women to inspire you to do good — because we will probably often fail you with our own imperfections!“

—  Ysabella Brave American singer 1979

"Doing Good — for the right reasons!" (13 March 2008)
Contexto: So let God know what you're doing just by doing it — or feel good about yourself. But don't rely on men and women to inspire you to do good — because we will probably often fail you with our own imperfections! We all should be trying to improve ourselves, regardless of how much better off or worse off we are than the person next to us, because we can all get better.
