She will speak to you as if you’re a student when you’re wrong in an argument (and probably if you’re right, too).
She’s highly trained in the art of keeping her cool in an argument, and one of those ways of keeping cool is delivering some of the most mind-blowingly annoying one-liners on the planet. For example:
"Let me know when you’re ready to take responsibility for your actions."
To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.
Good morning. This is a Rube Goldberg machine made out of toys, featuring three girls age 6-8, one of whom is rapping a rewritten “Girls” by the Beastie Boys.
It’s called The Princess Machine. The social Princess Machine flattens important, heroic women and makes them two-dimensional and unimportant. This Princess Machine is made out of princesses (among other things) and shows that girls are so much more than that — they can build, invent, and create, and they can do it with traditional femininity or without. It’s their choice.
Your move, patriarchy.
You think you know what we want, girls.
Pink and pretty it’s girls.
Just like the 50’s it’s girls.
You like to buy us pink toys
and everything else is for boys
and you can always get us dolls
and we’ll grow up like them… false.
It’s time to change.
We deserve to see a range.
'Cause all our toys look just the same
and we would like to use our brains.
We are all more than princess maids.
Girls to build the spaceship,
Girls to code the new app,
Girls to grow up knowing
they can engineer that.
That’s all we really need is Girls.
To bring us up to speed it’s Girls.
Our opportunity is Girls.
Don’t underestimate Girls.
Excellent remake of the lyrics to The Beastie Boys song.
…but the toy this advertises is pink. -___-
The song writer and toy maker should have talked.
