I don’t know if anyone would ever deny being a feminist. It certainly is made into something of a caricature these days. I think it’s demonized for the sake of trivializing feminist beliefs. But I think being a feminist simply means you believe in equal rights, and I think if you ask anybody if they believe in equal rights, they’ll say yes, man or woman. And if they don’t — who the heck would say that?

“Twenty-first. Night. Monday. 
Silhouette of the capitol in darkness. Some good-for-nothing — who knows why— made up the tale that love exists on earth. People believe it, maybe from laziness or boredom, and live accordingly: they wait eagerly for meetings, fear parting, and when they sing, they sing about love. But the secret reveals itself to some, and on them silence settles down… I found this out by accident 
and now it seems I’m sick all the time.”
- Anna Akhmatova,1917

Twenty-first. Night. Monday. 

Silhouette of the capitol in darkness. 
Some good-for-nothing — who knows why— 
made up the tale that love exists on earth. 

People believe it, maybe from laziness 
or boredom, and live accordingly: 
they wait eagerly for meetings, fear parting, 
and when they sing, they sing about love. 

But the secret reveals itself to some, 
and on them silence settles down… 
I found this out by accident 

and now it seems I’m sick all the time.

Anna Akhmatova,1917
