“You think it’s humiliating to look like a girl, because you think it’s humiliating to be a girl. Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short and wear shirts and boots because it’s okay to be a boy; for girls it’s like a promotion. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading, according to you, because secretly you believe that being a girl is degrading.”
-Ian McEwan (via bwenner)
This song from Madonna is from Music 2000. I got this CD for my 13th birthday, and when I saw this quote in a friend’s post, it called this song to mind so strongly that I had to post it. Crazy how even after 10 years, Madonna’s songs are still engraved into my brain.
