I mean, you really can’t negotiate when someone gets up there and says ‘Hey feminists, shut up.’ That’s a really stark way to start things, where it’s like, ‘so you just told me to shut up, can I even participate in this conversation?’ Or are you just going to be like ‘Oh another shrill feminist has a fucking opinion.’

As a child I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body.” Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia, because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.
Telling someone that something they’re proud of is stupid is about the fastest way to get them to stop talking to you about anything.
