I certainly embrace all the movement that’s going on these days about equality for women and equal rights. In general, I would apply that to all nationalities and all races. I think we do need—and truthfully it sounds Pollyanna-ish to say so—more awareness, generosity, and compassion than we have right now. But in terms of feminism, I embrace it wholeheartedly. Not in a kind of militant way, but I’ve always known that it matters.
That’s how this works. You talk to me about it so that I can take
your hand and fucking walk through this shit with you. That is what I
signed up for, okay? But I cannot do that if you won’t let me in.
