"Of course, the ultimate moment of being Female in Public comes when a woman, deep in thought, is told by a strange man to SMILE. (And this happens only to women.) Gentlemen, let’s get this straight. There is no part of my body that belongs to you, not even my facial expression."

"wait, are you a boy or a girl. i can’t tell."

good. i don’t want you to know. you aren’t allowed. i hope it keeps you awake at night for the rest of your life. i hope on your death bed you think of me and still have absolutely no idea. and your entire afterlife will be you in a room with only my face as your thoughts and an eternal sense of confusion.
