9 young oline, feminist (though she would never actually express it)

15 august 1995


[trans: When XXXXXXX and I spoke today she asked me if I believed in equal rights for women. I said that I did. She seemed quite shocked by my reply. She told me women should be submissive to their husbands. I didn't say anything else but I now wonder if I'm for equal rights. I'm certainly against sexism and the abuse women receive because of their sex. I don't think that is fair. But I do think women deserved the right to vote, hold property, be in Congress, and have opinions. And I do hope that I shall live to see the first female president. I guess I am a feminist, but I don't see anything wrong with that unless one takes a violent approach. I home my views weren't out of line. I would never actually express them.
F.C.]

Let's see... 1995... We were 14. I think that was freshman year at Page. Ok, I think I have figured out who said it. LOL.

that's pretty irrelevant. the relevant part is that i pretty much feel the exact same way towards feminism.

Caro Syrup, you know me... You black out a name and now I must figure out who said it. BTW, I sent you my guess in an email. Oh, and the big, juicy gossip that I had for you!
