Roxane Gay

  • I was called a feminist, and what I heard was, 'You are an angry, sex-hating, man-hating victim lady person.' This caricature is how feminists have been warped by the people who fear feminism most, the same people who have the most to lose when feminism succeeds.

  • Nemeses aren't born. They are made.

  • Abandon the cultural myth that all female friendships must be bitchy, toxic, or competitive. This myth is like heels and purses — pretty but designed to slow women down.

  • When you look past the image, a celebrity is merely a person you know nothing about.

Roxane Gay, U.S. writer, academic, editor
