(FE)Male

Prophet Muhammad explained: "If one of you were to be stabbed in the head with a piece of iron it would be better for him than if he were to touch a woman whom it is not permissible for him to touch."

I don’t believe in marriage. No, I really don’t. Let me be clear about that. I think at worst it’s a hostile political act, a way for small-minded men to keep women in the house and out of the way, wrapped up in the guise of tradition and conservative religious nonsense. At best, it’s a happy delusion – these two people who truly love each other and have no idea how truly miserable they’re about to make each other. But, but, when two people know that, and they decide with eyes wide open to face each other and get married anyway, then I don’t think it’s conservative or delusional. I think it’s radical and courageous and very romantic. To Diego and Frida.Tina Midotti

Dear God, make me a bird. So I could fly far. Far far away from here. - Jenny

I strived for 25 years to have my two Daughters learn this lesson.  The truth is they don’t need them (balls) after all.  They just need their own authentic compass and that’s it!  They are girls who are now women who are strong, independent, smart, educated, sexy, beautiful, loving, giving, devoted, loyal, trustworthy, funny, humble and focused. 
I recently realized (yes I know it took some time) that no matter how hard we try to have equality and fairness between sexes, we are what we are.  We are men or we are women.  It can’t be changed. We need to embrace all of our beautiful differences, no matter how challenging or frustrating.  I now adore the opposite sex.  I love men because ‘they are men’.  And I now adore my ‘womanhood’, my pretty, my girly, my curvy, my softness,  my feminine goddessness.  Why fight it?  (it’s absurd) - Patti Friday

“This is really fascinating, what’s going on at this table. Let’s take you and Erica. You’ve been around the block a few times. What are you, around 60? 63. Fantastic! Never married, which as we know, if you were a woman, would be a curse. You’d be an old maid, a spinster. Blah, blah, blah. So instead of pitying you, they write an article about you. Celebrate your never marrying. You’re elusive and ungetable, a real catch. Then, there’s my gorgeous sister here. Look at her. She is so accomplished. Most successful female playwright since who? Lillian Hellmann? She’s over 50, divorced, and she sits in night after night after night because available guys her age want something-forgive me, they want somebody that looks like Marin. The over-50 dating scene is geared towards men leaving older women out. And as a result, the women become more and more productive and therefore, more and more interesting. Which, in turn, makes them even less desirable because as we all know, men – especially older men- are threatened and afraid of productive, interesting women. It is just so clear! Single older women as a demographic are about as fucked a group as can ever exist.” – Zoe, Something’s Gotta Give
A close 2nd here.

The look of a powerful, beautiful woman. But don’t let that femininity fool you. She has a face holding strong with steel-edged determination. She doesn’t need to be this busy. She could stay in the palace and relax and soak and graze. A mother; a wife; a boss; an advocate; a humanitarian; a queen. She has a Kingdom and a crown. She is Jordan Fierce.
(Do you see into the eyes of a woman who knows what she wants)
