I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"All women are subtle in exaggerating their weaknesses; they are inventive when it comes to weaknesses in order to appear as utterly fragile ornaments who are hurt even by a speck of dust. Their existence is supposed to make men feel clumsy, and guilty on that score. Thus they defend themselves against the strong and "the law of the jungle."" - Friedrich Nietzsche

"Feminism directly confronts the idea that one person or set of people [has] the right to impose definitions of reality on others." - Liz Stanley and Sue Wise

When a woman does the cooking, because society expects it, it's called patriarchy."

"When a man has sex with a woman who is under the influence of alcohol and can't remember giving consent, it's called date rape.

When a woman has sex with a man who is under the influence of alcohol and can't remember giving consent, he has no basis for complaint."
