"You can call yourself or not call yourself whatever you want, but consider this. Nobody enjoys it more when a woman says she's not a feminist than a misogynist. Nobody gets more gloatingly self-congratulatory about it, or happier about what 'real' women don't need than someone who doesn't like women very much, especially not the uppity, outspoken, wanting pay equity and reproductive freedom types. Consider that any word that feared and derided has incredible power. And how beautiful and strong that makes it."

Which I am pretty sure is right out of Mean Girls, so I guess I know what we're watching next weekend.
