“Women & Gender Studies” is a bad name. The major should be called “Power & Gender Studies.” Studying gender is about who has access to and who is denied power, it’s not about studying women. An obviously example is rape… Rape has nothing to do with women. It’s not a women’s issue. It’s an issue of how power is constructed in society.
- Me: Women get more sensitive about the number of people they've had sex with.
- My boyfriend: That's the dumbest thing. Why would you care how much of a good thing you have? Like, I don't count how many burritos I eat.
- Me: But sometimes you eat a really shitty burrito, and you're like "Ew, why did I order this? It doesn't even have guacamole." And then you feel bad about eating that burrito.
- Bf: That's why you need to read Yelp reviews first.
