My Two Feminisms

From Marie Claire Magazine:
CHEAT SHEET: LINES FROM GREAT BOOKS THAT WILL HELP YOU FLIRT

[Marie Claire]: Are there some great literary lines that a person can use to flirt?

[Jack Murnighan, editor for nerve.com]: This--from Boccacio's THE DECAMERON--could be useful: "No mortal who is without the experience of love can ever lay claim to true excellence."


Every time a piece like this gets written, somewhere a writer dies... hopefully the author of some martini n' heels series.

I suppose it's good to know we're putting up a fa├žade of intellect over beauty (how many articles are about head-turning clothes and makeup, right?).

Here's an even better way to do it:

"We are not trying to push for abstinence," senior Lani Luo,said. "We are just trying to advocate for respect."
