1. "I wish, more than anything, that I could just be a ‘humanist.’ Oh, man, that would be amazing! Because that would mean that we lived in a magical world where all humans were born on equal footing, and maybe I could live in a house shaped like a big mushroom and birds would help me get dressed or something. Humanism is a gorgeous dream, and something to strive for. In fact, it is the exact thing that feminism is striving for right now (and has been working on for decades)! Yay, feminism!"

  3. Looking forward to getting all my lesbian sex tips from future issues of Cosmo. True equality can only be reached when that group of giggling 13-year-old interns who still change into their swimsuits behind a towel try to tell gay people how to do it, too. The more donuts and scrunchies involved, the better.

  15. Still thinking of wearing that generic Native American war bonnet to a music festival, or putting it on a half-naked model in that unpaid, clichéd fashion shoot? Try one of these other pieces of beautiful headgear, instead! Swedish, Brazilian, Hungarian, Queen Amidala… You may end up offending people, anyway, but it’d be nice to give Native American and First Nations activists a little break, however brief, from taking time out of their lives to explain the ins and outs of cultural appropriation like it’s their job.
