We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, “You can have ambition But not too much. You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man.” Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of Joy and love and mutual support, but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors- not for jobs or for accomplishments which I think can be a good thing- but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings In the way that boys are. Feminist: a person who believes in the social political, and economic equality of the sexes.

Real Hacker vs Movie Hacker

real hacker:
So you say you're gonna break into our local nuclear power plant? I really don't think that's possible
movie hacker:
*types a few keystrokes* I'm in
real hacker:
But the power plant's computers aren't even connected to the internet
movie hacker:
I said I'm in. Now I'll cause a meltdown *types a few keystrokes* Done
real hacker:
What do you mean done? There have to be many redundant safeguards in place to stop a meltdown. In any case, a meltdown would take time.
movie hacker:
Want me to break into the CIA next?
real hacker:
I don't even think you should attempt to...
movie hacker:
*types a few keystrokes* Too late. I'm in
