The shocking truth about women: We are not inherently passive or peaceful. We’re not inherently anything but human.

Three cheers for Robin Morgan! (Just so you know, Robin is a she. Since the early 1960s she's been a key radical feminist member of the American Women's Movement...so, probably not a man then!)

That's my self-evident truth for the day.

By the way...
