  • Glamour UK: What do you get riled up about in a feminist context?
  • Gillian Anderson: A lot. I have feminist bones and when I hear things or see people react to women in certain ways I have very little tolerance.
  • Glamour UK: But don't you feel sorry for modern men? Not knowing whether they should help us with our bags and open doors for us or whether we'll see it as an affront?
  • Gillian Anderson: No. I don't feel sorry for men.

There is a concept called body autonomy. Its generally considered a human right. Bodily autonomy means a person has control over who or what uses their body, for what, and for how long. Its why you can’t be forced to donate blood, tissue, or organs. Even if you are dead. Even if you’d save or improve 20 lives. It’s why someone can’t touch you, have sex with you, or use your body in any way without your continuous consent.

A fetus is using someone’s body parts. Therefore under bodily autonomy, it is there by permission, not by right. It needs a persons continuous consent. If they deny and withdraw their consent, the pregnant person has the right to remove them from that moment. A fetus is equal in this regard because if I need someone else’s body parts to live, they can also legally deny me their use.

By saying a fetus has a right to someone’s body parts until it’s born, despite the pregnant person’s wishes, you are doing two things.

1. Granting a fetus more rights to other people’s bodies than any born person.
2. Awarding a pregnant person less rights to their body than a corpse.

She’s successful — but is she too successful? Did she achieve success in the wrong way? Is she laughing at me?”

She is laughing at a man… instead of empathizing with his anger and his sexual desires. And that’s the problem with Patricia Lockwood.

(I’m debating making this girl available as a sticker and a shirt.)

I would buy that shirt. (Assuming it came in plus sizes at no additional cost.)

Would also buy this in plus sizes.

Want this shirt.

When asked about sacrifices. “To bring up the term ‘sacrifice’ in relation to our lives, is slightly obscene I’d have thought”.

This is amazing.
