"We teach girls shame: close your legs, cover yourself. We make them feel as though being born female they’re already guilty of something. As so, women grow up to be girls who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up—and this is the worst thing we do to girls—they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an artform."
