Gender quotes by William Least Heat-Moon
#1. It's difficult to write a book where a character is on virtually every page of the book but you cannot refer to his or her gender. It gets rid of every his, her, she and he. #Quote by William Least Heat-Moon
Gender quotes by Heather O'Neill
#2. Being a woman was a trap. Something would bring you down before you were twenty-three. The only time the world shows you any favor, or cuts you any slack, is during that very brief period of courtship where the world is trying to fuck you for the first time. #Quote by Heather O'Neill
Gender quotes by Anne Bradstreet
#3. Now say, have women worth, or have they none?
Or had they some, but with our Queen is't gone?
Nay Masculines, you have thus tax'd us long,
But she, though dead, will vindicate our wrong.
Let such as say our sex is void of reason
Know 'tis a slander now, but once was treason."
(In Honour of that High and Mighty Princess, Queen Elizabeth) #Quote by Anne Bradstreet
Gender quotes by Jenny Shipley
#4. With the adoption of the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women, the international community sent out a clear message that gender based violence will not be tolerated. #Quote by Jenny Shipley
Gender quotes by Kecia Ali
#5. The legal structure of Islamic marriage is predicated on a gender-differentiated allocation of interdependent claims, which would be thrown into chaos by a same-sex union. In the standard contractual understanding of marriage, the husband holds milk al-nikah, control of the marriage tie, and the wife has a claim to dower and the obligation of sexual exclusivity and availability. Several early jurists considered the possibility of whether these rights and duties could be reallocated – whether a woman could pay a man a dower, for example, and retain control over sex and divorce – and agreed unanimously that such a reallocation is not permitted. Not only are husbands' and wives' rights distinct, but each role is fundamentally linked to the sex/gender of the person exercising it. A woman cannot wield control of the marriage tie; a man cannot be contractually bound to sexual availability to his wife. Thus, following that logic, it would not be possible for one woman to adopt the "husband" role and the other to adopt the "wife" role in the marriage of two women. The self-contained logic of the jurisprudential framework does not permit such an outcome. #Quote by Kecia Ali
Gender quotes by Mario Vargas-Llosa
#6. I am somewhat allergic to explanations that divide men and women into frozen categories and attribute to each sex its characteristic virtues and shortcomings. #Quote by Mario Vargas-Llosa
Gender quotes by Vaclav Klaus
#7. And finally, there is another danger: the emergence of nonideological but very aggressive 'isms,' which are really quite new. Let me at least name them: We all care about human rights, but I am afraid of 'human rightism.' We all want to have a healthy environment, but I see the danger in environmentalism. To put it politically correctly, I admire the second gender, but I fear feminism. We all are enriched by other cultures, but not by multiculturalism. I am aware of the importance of voluntary associations, but I fear NGOism. #Quote by Vaclav Klaus
Gender quotes by Nevo Zisin
#8. There are many different ways to perform gender, and we should be open and encouraging of them. #Quote by Nevo Zisin
Gender quotes by Kate Bornstein
#9. It is important to note that the relevant factor to sexual harassment in this story is not gender identity but gender perception. Some friends and acquaintances who have experienced harassment do not, in fact, identify as women; they were perceived as women. As I sought support, the key issue was not their gender identity, but the gender signifiers that led them to be perceived as women. If we don't admit that sexual harassment is a gendered experience, we can never shed light on the sexism implicit in many cases of harassment. However, in addressing these sorts of gendered experiences, we may find that gender identity is not the most useful category. #Quote by Kate Bornstein
Gender quotes by Patti Smith
#10. The heavy scent of perfume and the red slashes of lipstick, so strong in the fifties, revolted me. For a time I resented her. She was the messenger and also the message #Quote by Patti Smith
Gender quotes by Marie Calloway
#11. I'm interested in the female dom/male sub dynamic, and how superficially it can seem like a total reverse of gender roles and maybe even subversive or something. #Quote by Marie Calloway
Gender quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#12. I look over at my hero shelf and see Philip Levine, Rainer Maria Rilke, Virginia Woolf, Shunryu Suzuki, Adrienne Rich, Pablo Neruda, Subcomandante Marcos, Eduardo Galeano, James Baldwin. These books are, if they are instructions at all, instructions in extending our identities out into the world, human and nonhuman, in imagination as a great act of empathy that lifts you out of yourself, not locks you down into your gender.
("80 Books No Woman Should Read") #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Gender quotes by Wallace Stegner
#13. Ruth believes that boys are not found around stables because what they like is taking things apart and putting them together again, and for this purpose horses are not so satisfactory as cars, motorcycles, and even bicycles, while girls adore horses because they are biological and have functions. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Gender quotes by Ellen Ochoa
#14. What everyone in the astronaut corps shares in common is not gender or ethnic background, but motivation, perseverance, and desire - the desire to participate in a voyage of discovery. #Quote by Ellen Ochoa
Gender quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#15. Testosterone has far less to do with aggression than most assume. Within the normal range, individual differences in testosterone levels don't predict who will be aggressive. Moreover, the more an organism has been aggressive, the less testosterone is needed for further aggression. When testosterone does play a role, it's facilitatory - testosterone does not 'invent' aggression. It makes us more sensitive to triggers of aggression. Also, rising testosterone levels foster aggression only during challenges to status. Finally, crucially, the rise in testosterone during a status challenge does not necessarily increase aggression; it increases whatever is needed to maintain status. In a world in which status is awarded for the best of our behaviors, testosterone would be the most prosocial hormone in existence. #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky
Gender quotes by Ken Wilson
#16. Today we have gay people whose relationships, until just recently, have been branded by society as extraordinarily shameful, as uniquely perverse - worse than incest. The cultural heritage of this view had the effect of driving them all underground, where sex is practiced surreptitiously, secretively, for fear of social ostracism, not to mention physical harm. And now, tired of the highway rest stops, tired of the back rooms in gay bars, many in that community have a longing to attempt what can only be regarded as modern marvel regardless of gender: two people willing to attempt lifelong fidelity to each other, come what may. This doesn't seem to me to be a "slippery slope." It seems to me that it might actually be instead, a redemptive trajectory. #Quote by Ken Wilson
Gender quotes by Joe Matlock
#17. Regardless of one's background - race, culture or gender, education is a great equalizer. #Quote by Joe Matlock
Gender quotes by Helen Hoang
#18. For whatever reason, none of the women in this house cooked. He'd had to learn in order to survive. #Quote by Helen Hoang
Gender quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#19. Forget race, forget gender, forget religion, and become a human my friend. Become a human above everything else, and all great things shall follow. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Gender quotes by Aysha Taryam
#20. Our Arab mothers and sisters are suffering from injustices like domestic violence, sexual harassment, child marriages and honour killings, some are still fighting for their right to drive or travel without male custody therefore our powerful Arab media was not only expected to broadcast this particular one of a kind Women's march it should have held panels to dissect the issues being brought forth in order for the Arab world to better understand that gender equality is not an idea that one believes in, it is a planned movement that requires an enormous effort on the part of both men and women to reach. #Quote by Aysha Taryam
Gender quotes by Andrew Comiskey
#21. The image of God, then, involves gender identity and complementarity. God created gender in duality as male and female. #Quote by Andrew Comiskey
Gender quotes by Bill Watterson
#22. Calvin: I used to hate writing assignments, but now I enjoy them. I realized that the purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog! Want to see my book report?
Hobbes: (Reading Calvin's paper) "The Dynamics of Interbeing and Monological Imperatives in Dick and Jane: A Study in Psychic Transrelational Gender modes."
Calvin: Academia, here I come! #Quote by Bill Watterson
Gender quotes by Fay Weldon
#23. When today's young woman says she isn't a feminist what she means is she isn't a lesbian and she doesn't hate men, she likes to wear make-up and she enjoys a laugh. In which she is no different from many an early feminist. #Quote by Fay Weldon
Gender quotes by David Wong
#24. When a man plans, a woman laughs. #Quote by David Wong
Gender quotes by Audre Lorde
#25. It is as hard for our children to believe that we are not omnipotent as it is for us to know it, as parents. But that knowledge is necessary as the first step in the reassessment of power as something other than might, age, privilege, or the lack of fear. It is an important step for a boy, whose societal destruction begins when he is forced to believe that he can only be strong if he doesn't feel, or if he wins. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Gender quotes by Cari Beauchamp
#26. Adding to her frustration was the much more frequent attention being given to her gender. Throughout the twenties, Frances was hailed as "one of the most famous scenario writers" or "highest paid scenarist" and now The Big House was promoted in the Los Angeles Examiner under the headline "Woman Writes Film Plot of Penitentiary. #Quote by Cari Beauchamp
Gender quotes by Danica Patrick
#27. In this society these days, women are widely accepted in all kinds of cross-gender areas. So yeah, it's time! #Quote by Danica Patrick
Gender quotes by Anita Clenney
#28. Three's a crowd, unless it's a ménage, but I don't think this particular gender arrangement would work for me. #Quote by Anita Clenney
Gender quotes by Elizabeth Holmes
#29. I don't want to make an incremental change in some technology in my life. I want to create a whole new technology, and one that is aimed at helping humanity at all levels regardless of geography or ethnicity or age or gender. #Quote by Elizabeth Holmes
Gender quotes by Genevieve Cogman
#30. Kai might be very non-judgemental when it came to personal gender roles, but he was extremely superior when explaining how non-judgemental he was. "I #Quote by Genevieve Cogman
Gender quotes by Stephen Fry
#31. He had quickly happened upon the truth which many lonely contemporaries would never discover, the truth that everybody, simply everybody, was panting for it and could, with patience, be shown that they were panting for it. So Adrian grabbed what was to hand and had the time of his life genitally - focusing exclusively on his own gender of course, for this was 1973 and girls had not yet been invented. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Gender quotes by Robin Glasser
#32. There's no regifting the present #Quote by Robin Glasser
Gender quotes by J.C. Wickhart
#33. No. This was a crude and adolescent way of talking to the fairer gender, it rarely works. When it does work, the woman that falls for it isn't even suitable for a satisfying sexual encounter. A good way to weed out the poor decisions and unacceptable mistakes though, and a better way to catch a horrible case of the dick rot. Trial and error. A few hit points missing is better for skill gain anyway. #Quote by J.C. Wickhart
Gender quotes by Bryant McGill
#34. The passive and overt violence waged against the women and children of the world must end. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Gender quotes by Susan Wojcicki
#35. At the end of the day, both men and women who become CEOs have showed tenacity and hard work to succeed in their careers. It takes not just skills but also extreme dedication and commitment. And regardless of gender, CEOs are measured by the same criteria - the growth and success of the business. #Quote by Susan Wojcicki
Gender quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#36. Crime does not decrease in proportion to the severest punishment. #Quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Gender quotes by Anita Sarkeesian
#37. There is a clear difference between sexist parody and parody of sexism. Sexist parody encourages the players to mock and trivialize gender issues while parody of sexism disrupts the status quo and undermines regressive gender conventions. #Quote by Anita Sarkeesian
Gender quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#38. For the record, this isn't a male/female thing. It's a people thing. You talk about men being cold ... you should see women from my standpoint. We're talking the Arctic tundra would be warmer. Believe me, you don't want to know my vantage point on your gender. As a man, if I grabbed your breasts, I'd be arrested. Any idea how many women have felt free to grab my crotch at will? (Acheron) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Gender quotes by Gillian Zinser
#39. I was more comfortable with guys growing up, but now I find myself more comfortable in my own skin and open to people, regardless of their gender or popularity or any other label, as a result. #Quote by Gillian Zinser
Gender quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#40. Achieving gender equality requires the engagement of women and men, girls and boys. It is everyone's responsibility. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Gender quotes by Hilary Mantel
#41. He says in his defence he never meddled with married women, only with virgins. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Gender quotes by William J. Clinton
#42. Simply put, no society can truly flourish if it stifles the dreams and productivity of half its population. Happily, I see evidence all over the world that women are gaining social and economic power that they never had before. This is good news ... #Quote by William J. Clinton
Gender quotes by Carmela Dutra
#43. There is a book for every walk of life. No matter the age, race, or gender there is something that will appeal to you. #Quote by Carmela Dutra
Gender quotes by Jane Austen
#44. I do not think I ever opened a book in my life which had not something to say upon woman's inconstancy. Songs and proverbs, all talk of woman's fickleness. But perhaps you will say, these were all written by men."
"Perhaps I shall. Yes, yes, if you please, no reference to examples in books. Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything. #Quote by Jane Austen
Gender quotes by Matthew S. McCormick
#45. 1. Myth: Without God, life has no meaning.

There are 1.2 billion Chinese who have no predominant religion, and 1 billion people in India who are predominantly Hindu. And 65% of Japan's 127 million people claim to be non-believers. It is laughable to suggest that none of these billions of people are leading meaningful lives.

2. Myth: Prayer works.

Studies have now shown that inter-cessionary prayer has no effect whatsoever of the health or well-being of the subject.

3. Myth: Atheists are immoral.

There are hundreds of millions of non-believers on the planet living normal, decent, moral lives. They love their children, care about others, obey laws, and try to keep from doing harm to others just like everyone else. In fact, in predominantly non-believing countries such as in northern Europe, measures of societal health such as life expectancy at birth, adult literacy, per capita income, education, homicide, suicide, gender equality, and political coercion are better than they are in believing societies.

4. Myth: Belief in God is compatible with science.

In the past, every supernatural or paranormal explanation of phenomena that humans believed turned out to be mistaken; science has always found a physical explanation that revealed that the supernatural view was a myth. Modern organisms evolved from lower life forms, they weren't created 6,000 years ago in the finished state. Fever is not caused by de #Quote by Matthew S. McCormick
Gender quotes by Lisa Graham McMinn
#46. To limit the ways our daughters can legitimately function as stewards/rulers further devalues the image of God in them and continues the imbalance and distortion of God's plan. #Quote by Lisa Graham McMinn
Gender quotes by Tim Gunn
#47. Why must she dress that way? I think she's confused about her gender. #Quote by Tim Gunn
Gender quotes by Melinda Gates
#48. As women gain rights, families flourish, and so do societies. That connection is built on a simple truth: Whenever you include a group that's been excluded, you benefit everyone. And when you're working globally to include women and girls, who are half of every population, you're working to benefit all members of every community. Gender equity lifts everyone. Women's rights and society's health and wealth rise together. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Gender quotes by Georg Baselitz
#49. Women don't paint very well. It's a fact. There are, of course, exceptions. Agnes Martin or, from the past, Paula Modersohn-Becker. #Quote by Georg Baselitz
Gender quotes by Robert Kodingo
#50. We hate each other by race, color, tribe, wealth, gender etc because everyone wants to feel special and different than the other. I do not however have a solution on how people can stop having an ego that makes them specially superior than the other. #Quote by Robert Kodingo
Gender quotes by Emma Watson
#51. When at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams, because they didn't want to appear muscle-y, when at 18, my male friends were unable to express their feelings, I decided that I was a feminist. #Quote by Emma Watson
Gender quotes by Kathy Baldock
#52. What's happening outside church walls is happening inside church walls. It is all part of the human experience. Ignorance and lack of education about sex, sexual orientation, gender identities, and human sexuality in general have led to harmful assumptions and poor pastoral counsel. #Quote by Kathy Baldock
Gender quotes by Zygmunt Bauman
#53. Even if the self he or she is struggling to display and get recognized is deemed by the actor to precede, pre-empt and predetermine the choice of individual identity (ethnic, race, religious and gender ascriptions claim to belong to that category of self), it is the urge of selection and the effort to make the choice publicly recognizable that constitutes the self-definition of the liquid modern individual. That effort would have hardly been undertaken if the identity in question was indeed endowed with the determining power it claims and/or is believed to possess. #Quote by Zygmunt Bauman
Gender quotes by Charles Forsman
#54. I was not her protector. She was mine. #Quote by Charles Forsman
Gender quotes by Ash Gabrieli
#55. In the whole world, only the English language gives the most accurate and clear description of a woman. Only one word defines our whole being. That is "Female." The first two letters "Fe," coming from Latin word Ferrum, in the periodic table indicate iron and "male" means man. "Female" because our gender is as solid as iron. We can go through the fire, water, endless trials, but remain as strong as before. #Quote by Ash Gabrieli
Gender quotes by James Boswell
#56. Quoting Samuel Johnson: Men know that women are an overmatch for them, and therefore they choose the weakest or the most ignorant. If they did not think so, they never could be afraid of women knowing as much as themselves. #Quote by James Boswell
Gender quotes by Melinda Gates
#57. I've never held the view that women are better than men, or that the best way to improve the world is for women to gain more power than men. I think male dominance is harmful to society because any dominance is harmful: It means society is governed by a false hierarchy where power and opportunity are awarded according to gender, age, wealth, and privilege - not according to skill, effort, talent, or accomplishments. When a culture of dominance is broken, it activates power in all of us. So the goal for me is not the rise of women and the fall of man. It is the rise of both women and men from a struggle for dominance to a state of partnership.
If the goal is partnership between women and men, why do I put so much emphasis on women's empowerment and women's groups? My answer is that we draw strength from each other, and we often have to convince ourselves that we deserve an equal partnership before we get one. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Gender quotes by Eleanor Smeal
#58. Nowhere have women been more excluded from decision-making than in the military and foreign affairs. When it comes to the military and questions of nuclear disarmament, the gender gap becomes the gender gulf. #Quote by Eleanor Smeal
Gender quotes by Aysha Taryam
#59. The Women's March had restored my faith as I am sure it has introduced the young generation to the new wave of feminism. A feminist movement that was made up of both sexes and all ages and creeds, one that did away with the arguments and stood arm in arm for a greater cause, a cause which the Arab media did not wish to project. #Quote by Aysha Taryam
Gender quotes by Patti Smith
#60. As far as I'm concerned, being any gender is a drag. #Quote by Patti Smith
Gender quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#61. He left ruin in his wake, but it was forgotten, Sazed thought, turning to watch her fly. He created kingdoms, and then destroyed them as he made the world anew. We had the wrong gender all along. THE #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Gender quotes by Thomas Van Nortwick
#62. our contemporary ideas about manliness, reflected in action movies and westerns, generally prohibit so-called real men from displaying high emotion, with the exception of anger. John Wayne doesn't cry. By contrast, Achilles, the epitome of manliness in Homer's Iliad, weeps openly and at length over the loss of his friend Patroclus. #Quote by Thomas Van Nortwick
Gender quotes by Angela Braly
#63. The most important factor in determining whether you will succeed isn't your gender - it's you. #Quote by Angela Braly
Gender quotes by Dan Savage
#64. Parenting is about being competent and responsible. It's not about gender, necessarily. #Quote by Dan Savage
Gender quotes by Nadje Al-Ali
#65. Military intervention cannot liberate women because it is embedded within a set of assumptions, beliefs, and social relations that reinforce and reproduce gender inequality, as well as other social inequalities within and across nation-states. Military intervention depends upon a belief in the legitimacy of armed violence in resolving political problems, which in turn depends upon our adherence to particular ideas about what it means to be a man or a woman. #Quote by Nadje Al-Ali
Gender quotes by Dipin Damodharan
#66. We're still living with the ideology of compromise, not with the ideology of recognition #Quote by Dipin Damodharan
Gender quotes by Louise Doughty
#67. We are taught we can redeem them, she said to me once. We are taught it as soon as we can read. We can turn the beast into a prince, if only we love him enough. #Quote by Louise Doughty
Gender quotes by Naomi Alderman
#68. Gender is a shell game. What is a man? Whatever a woman isn't. What is a woman? Whatever a man is not. Tap on it and it's hollow. Look under the shells: it's not there. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Gender quotes by Julia Serano
#69. Hey girls, did you hear the news? It's just been scientifically proven that barrettes are dangerous! So are bracelets and bric-a-brac. It's a fact. And don't be fooled by thick-necked macho men who pretend that "girl stuff" is boring or frivolous, because that's just an act. Because as soon as you ask that guy to hold your purse for a minute, he will start to squirm, as if your handbag were full of worms, as he holds it as far away from his rugged body as possible. Because "girl stuff" is made with the gender equivalent of Kryptonite! #Quote by Julia Serano
Gender quotes by J.S. Cooper
#70. I want people to see that this is a story about human beings and that our identities are made up of things that don't matter. Our race doesn't matter, our gender doesn't matter, our bloodlines don't matter. We should love and treat each other equally. At the end of the day, we need to see past these things. We need to understand that love, true love, the love that we should feel for each other isn't or shouldn't be based on things beyond our control. #Quote by J.S. Cooper
Gender quotes by S. Bear Bergman
#71. One bright pansy popping through a sidewalk crack will get weeded or stepped on; it's not until twenty fabulous flowers bust through and the pavement is ruined anyway that someone decides maybe it isn't a sidewalk at all, but a flower garden. So please, for the love of gender
go bloom. #Quote by S. Bear Bergman
Gender quotes by Lorna Jowett
#72. Thus angel embodies neatly the idea that "the muscular body functions as a powerful symbol of desire and lack." Angel is manly but not a man, and his display of masculinity points to the ambivalences that surround gender. #Quote by Lorna Jowett
Gender quotes by Gail Honeyman
#73. During the next free-form jigging section, I started to wonder why the band was singing about, presumably, the Young Men's Christian Association, but then, from my very limited exposure to popular music, people did seem to sing about umbrellas and fire-starting and Emily Bronte novels, so, I supposed, why not a gender- and faith-based youth organization? #Quote by Gail Honeyman
Gender quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#74. Syn may be too much of a gentleman to hit you, but I'm not. I'm not only ashamed to call you human, I'm completely disgusted that we share the same gender. You want to know the truth? The only filth in this room is you, and you're the one who doesn't deserve to breathe our air. Decent's got nothing to do with birthright. It's all about actions, and trust me, you're the lowest form I've ever met and I've taken in the worst scum imaginable. But I'd rather sit at the table with them than you any day. (Shahara to Mara) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Gender quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#75. I think gender plays a part in most things, but I don't know how it would be different because I've never been a man. And my fame is different from Nicole Kidman's or Sharon Stone's. I think everybody's fame is different. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Gender quotes by Peter Guber
#76. In any situation that calls for you to persuade, convince or manage someone or a group of people to do something, the ability to tell a purposeful story will be your secret sauce. Telling to win through purposeful stories is situation, industry, gender, demographic, and psychographic-agnostic. It's an all-purpose, everyone wins tool. #Quote by Peter Guber
Gender quotes by Aisha Tyler
#77. A belief in feminism is a belief in personal freedom - the freedom to live a life free of fear of violence, to select a fulfilling career and be compensated fairly, to choose when to start a family, to marry whom you love. I want everyone, regardless of gender, to live a life free of restriction or fear, able to pursue their own personal brand of happiness and fulfillment. #Quote by Aisha Tyler
Gender quotes by Ilana Glazer
#78. It's interesting, gender versus race. I think people say that to women more: 'Oh, you're my favorite female.' They wouldn't say 'favorite black comic.' #Quote by Ilana Glazer
Gender quotes by Krista Burton
#79. If reconciling your feminist values with your sexual preferences is something you're struggling with, don't panic. But try to believe what I'm about to tell you, because it's true: It's healthy to want and seek pleasure. It's generous and kind to want to make your sexual partner(s) feel good. You should do stuff with someone because you want to, not because they expect or feel entitled to it, and the same should be true for them. Whatever you do during sexytimes is between you and your partner - not you, your partner, and feminism, and not you, your partner, and the Gender Roles Police Force. Everything doesn't always have to be equal - unless you want it to be. The only things that matter are that everyone's having fun, and everyone's feeling respected by and respectful of their partners the whole time you're doing whatever it is that you get up to. Because in the end, that's all that sex is: Two people who want to have sex, alone in a room. No judgy voices allowed. #Quote by Krista Burton
Gender quotes by John G. Stackhouse Jr.
#80. When society was patriarchal, as it was in the New Testament context and as it has been everywhere in the world except in modern society in our day, the church avoided scandal by going along with it - fundamentally evil as patriarchy was and is. Now, however, that modern society is at least officially egalitarian, the scandal is that the church is NOT going along with society, not rejoicing in the unprecedented freedom to let women and men serve according to gift and call without an arbitrary gender line. This scandal impedes both the evangelism of others and the edification - the retention and development of faith - of those already converted. #Quote by John G. Stackhouse Jr.
Gender quotes by T.M. Smith
#81. Love is Love.. it knows no gender #Quote by T.M. Smith
Gender quotes by Shreya Naik
#82. Dear Women... Chill! We are no victims. Fight for equality, not superiority. Days are not far when people would be fighting for 'Men Empowerment'. True... Women suffer more than Men. But that doesn't mean men do not suffer - at all. I have seen male victims of domestic violence. I have read stories of men who have been rape victims. We, being women can at least speak about these issues. Men can't or rather our society doesn't allow them to. We better fight against the issues we are facing irrespective of the gender. And not against Men.

Stop being Weak - Mentally as well as Physically. Because We are Not! #Quote by Shreya Naik
Gender quotes by Amartya Sen
#83. When the Nobel award came my way, it also gave me an opportunity to do something immediate and practical about my old obsessions, including literacy, basic health care and gender equity, aimed specifically at India and Bangladesh. #Quote by Amartya Sen
Gender quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#84. Encountering gender apartheid and waged slavery shook me to my roots more than half a century ago in Afghanistan. Oh, the women of Afghanistan, the women of the Muslim world. I was no feminist
but now, thinking back, I see how much I learned there, how clearly their condition taught me to see gender discrimination anywhere and, above all, taught me to see how cruel oppressed women could be to each other. They taught me about women everywhere. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Gender quotes by Aparna Jain
#85. Insecurity is gender neutral. Insecurity comes at various levels with power and position. #Quote by Aparna Jain
Gender quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#86. It's interesting that the woman who wrote that treatise – the one you all practically worship in Alethkar –decided that all of the feminine tasks involve sitting around having fun while all the masculine ones involve finding someone to stick a spear in you. Telling, eh? #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Gender quotes by Elmar Hussein
#87. Anti-feminism is not sexism. It does not defend the various types of physical, sexual and moral violence against women in the family and society. It does not claim to violate the natural rights of women, which is expressed in the constitution and the legal system as a whole. Instead, anti-feminism supports the innate biological differences among men and women, and as a final result it is directed against gender-blindness -- a unisex trend that artificially increases due to feminism in modern global civilization. To protect the natural rights of women, you don't need to be a feminist, you have to be a humanist who has devoted himself or herself to protecting all humans. #Quote by Elmar Hussein
Gender quotes by Geena Rocero
#88. When I moved to the United States [from Asia] in 2001, I experienced a more rigid concept of gender, but somehow I was allowed to change my name and my gender marker. Why is there that paradox? How do I get those two things to be the same? #Quote by Geena Rocero
Gender quotes by Aporva Kala
#89. Why love has to intense? Women's love isn't. It is a male contribution to a relationship. What does a woman contribute? Children continuity- intentional immortality. #Quote by Aporva Kala
Gender quotes by Ivanka Trump
#90. I think my dad is highly gender-neutral. If he doesn't like someone, he'll articulate that, and I think it's also part of what resonates about him. He'll say what he's thinking. #Quote by Ivanka Trump
Gender quotes by Aaron Overfield
#91. She tried to keep in mind how scared and hurt Hunter was and decided to let him have that one. She chose to give him the benefit of the doubt and not take it personally. Besides, she wasn't sure if she walked over there and slapped him, he wouldn't slap her back. Not only did Veil put an end to chivalry - and the dichotomous gender myth overall - but it was Hunter. When combining gay, irreverent, and unpredictable, chances were high that somewhere in the mix, slapping a woman wouldn't be unheard of. #Quote by Aaron Overfield
Gender quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#92. Lakshmi massages Vishnu's feet. Is this male domination? Kali stands on Shiva's chest. Is this female domination? Shiva is half a woman. Is this gender equality? Why then is Shakti never half a man? #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik
Gender quotes by Miranda Popkey
#93. I was tipsy, yes, but also I was grace itself. There is, below the surface of every conversation in which intimacies are shared, an erotic current. Sometimes this current is so hot it all but boils and other times its barely lukewarm, hardly noticeable, but always the current is present, if only you plunge your hands just an inch or two farther down in the water. This is regardless of the gender of the people involved, of their sexual orientations. This is the natural outcome of disclosure, for to disclose is to reveal, to bring out into the open what was previously hidden. And that unwrapping, that denuding, is always, inevitably sensual. Nothing binds two people like sharing a secret. #Quote by Miranda Popkey
Gender quotes by Lucy Liu
#94. I think people sometimes get the wrong impression when they're like, Oh, well, so-and-so was straight and then she was gay, and now she's straight again, you know? But it's like, how many times do I have to kiss a woman before I'm gay? Everybody wants to label people. Sometimes you just fall in love with somebody, and you're really not thinking about what gender or whatever they happen to be. It think that if I happen to fall in love with a woman, everyone's going to make a big deal out of it. But if I happen to fall in love with a man, nobody cares. #Quote by Lucy Liu
Gender quotes by Kimberly D. Acquaviva
#95. If your organization is not formally committed to a policy of nondiscrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression or gender presentation in its employment practices, you should not expect lesbian,
gay, bisexual, transgender, gender-nonconforming, queer, and/or questioning patients and families to feel safe seeking out your services. #Quote by Kimberly D. Acquaviva
Gender quotes by Anne-Marie Slaughter
#96. Motherhood is a greater predictor of wage inequality than gender is. It's enormous. #Quote by Anne-Marie Slaughter
Gender quotes by William Keepin
#97. Neither group working alone can create gender balance in society. The sexes must work together for this balance to be realized, collaborating in courageous new forms of experiential and transformative modalities. #Quote by William Keepin
Gender quotes by Judd Trichter
#98. Unsettling because it reveals some possible branch of evolution in which sex organs will no longer exist. The bots won't need them, and perhaps without them, the entire concept of gender will disappear. #Quote by Judd Trichter
Gender quotes by Camille Paglia
#99. Men have sacrificed and crippled themselves physically and emotionally to feed, house, and protect women and children. None of their pain or achievement is registered in feminist rhetoric, which portrays men as oppressive and callous exploiters. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Gender quotes by Dolly Parton
#100. It's a good thing I was born a girl, otherwise I'd be a drag queen. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Gender quotes by Bryant McGill
#101. Males have been groomed since birth, according to the specifications of a sick and perverse society, to become instruments of war. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Gender quotes by Gail Kelly
#102. When I got to be a CEO, I said: 'Right. I'm now going to tackle gender inequality head-on. I'm going to make a difference and lead by example and actively put in place policies and practices to support women.' #Quote by Gail Kelly
Gender quotes by Gerda Lerner
#103. The system of patriarchy can function only with the cooperation of women. This cooperation is secured by a variety of means: gender indoctrination; educational deprivation; the denial of women of knowledge of their history; the dividing of women, on from another, by defining "respectability" and "deviance" according to women's sexual activities; by restraints and outright coercion; by discrimination in access to economic resources and political power; and by awarding class privileges to conforming women. #Quote by Gerda Lerner
Gender quotes by Annastacia Dickerson
#104. For me, the times that I dressed provocatively had been empowering. It felt good. It's those times that I felt comfortable in my own skin. Like really, really comfortable. And let's face it, body self-esteem issues are a hurdle many women struggle to overcome.
So when a person tears a woman down for how's she's dressed, they are tearing her down at a moment she feels at the top of her game. That's where the real shame is - not in how a woman is dressed, but in the desire to minimise her self-worth and empowerment. That's not kind, or well meaning. It's rude and cruel. #Quote by Annastacia Dickerson
Gender quotes by Connor Franta
#105. Girls can be athletic. Guys can have feelings. Girls can be smart. Guys can be creative. And vice versa. Gender is specific only to your reproductive organs (and sometimes not even to those), not your interest, likes, dislikes, goals, and ambitions. #Quote by Connor Franta
Gender quotes by Tamuna Tsertsvadze
#106. Who is a man without a woman? Giving surnames after one's fathers, as if those fathers can bear children without mothers! Without Yin, there is no Yang! Without Yang, there is no Yin! Both of us are needed to make the world run! How come they think they are superior?! #Quote by Tamuna Tsertsvadze
Gender quotes by Judith Butler
#107. If the immutable character of sex is contested, perhaps this construct called 'sex' is as culturally constructed as gender; indeed, perhaps it was always already gender, with the consequence that the distinction between sex and gender turns out to be no distinction at all. #Quote by Judith Butler
Gender quotes by Rad Hourani
#108. I dont see things with gender, race and culture #Quote by Rad Hourani
Gender quotes by Jerzy Kosinski
#109. Lovers are not snails; they don't have to protrude from their shells and meet each other halfway. Meet me within your own self. #Quote by Jerzy Kosinski
Gender quotes by M. J. Hyland
#110. Where writers are from is one of the world' s most boring topics. Where we're born, gender or race, wealth or poverty - those are the things we spend time talking about. Stop trying to label me. I'm a writer. Worry about whether I'm any good! #Quote by M. J. Hyland
Gender quotes by Kameron Hurley
#111. That was a very formidable woman," Caisa said.
"I seem to know a good many of those."
"And you have a terrible habit of angering them," she said. #Quote by Kameron Hurley
Gender quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#112. A man once asked me ... how I managed in my books to write such natural conversation between men when they were by themselves. Was I, by any chance, a member of a large, mixed family with a lot of male friends? I replied that, on the contrary, I was an only child and had practically never seen or spoken to any men of my own age till I was about twenty-five. "Well," said the man, "I shouldn't have expected a woman (meaning me) to have been able to make it so convincing." I replied that I had coped with this difficult problem by making my men talk, as far as possible, like ordinary human beings. This aspect of the matter seemed to surprise the other speaker; he said no more, but took it away to chew it over. One of these days it may quite likely occur to him that women, as well as men, when left to themselves, talk very much like human beings also. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Gender quotes by Tom Vanderbilt
#113. Men may or may not be better drivers than women, but they seem to die more often trying to prove that they are. #Quote by Tom Vanderbilt
Gender quotes by Angela Davis
#114. Feminism involves so much more than gender equality and it involves so much more than gender. Feminism must involve consciousness of capitalism (I mean the feminism that I relate to, and there are multiple feminisms, right). So it has to involve a consciousness of capitalism and racism and colonialism and post-colonialities, and ability and more genders than we can even imagine and more sexualities than we ever thought we could name. #Quote by Angela Davis
Gender quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#115. [O]ur attitudes towards things like race or gender operate on two levels. First of all, we have our conscious attitudes. This is what we choose to believe. These are our stated values, which we use to direct our behavior deliberately . . . But the IAT [Implicit Association Test] measures something else. It measures our second level of attitude, our racial attitude on an unconscious level - the immediate, automatic associations that tumble out before we've even had time to think. We don't deliberately choose our unconscious attitudes. And . . . we may not even be aware of them. The giant computer that is our unconscious silently crunches all the data it can from the experiences we've had, the people we've met, the lessons we've learned, the books we've read, the movies we've seen, and so on, and it forms an opinion. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Gender quotes by Judith Martin
#116. Women were brought up to have only one set of manners. A woman was either a lady or she wasn't, and we all know what the latter meant. Not even momentary lapses were allowed; there is no female equivalent of the boys-will-be-boys concept. #Quote by Judith Martin
Gender quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#117. Composure and self-restraint were not only desirable characteristics in a woman, they were essental.
As my mother put it later, it was bad enough having to worry yourself sick every time your husband went up in an airplane; now, she was being told, she was also supposed to feel responsible if his plane crashed. Anger and discontent, lest they kill, were to be kept to oneself. The military, even more so than the rest of society, clearly put a premium on well-behaved, genteel, and even-tempered women. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Gender quotes by Nadia Scrieva
#118. Love does not have gender. Love is not exclusive! Our hearts have the capacity to love so many people. The only tragedy is when fear, cultural barriers, ridiculous misunderstandings, or arbitrary numbers prevent us from experiencing the joy we could have. #Quote by Nadia Scrieva
Gender quotes by Ann Leckie
#119. I saw them all, suddenly, for just a moment, through non-Radchaai eyes, an eddying crowd of unnervingly ambiguously gendered people. I saw all the features that would mark gender for non-Radchaai - never, to my annoyance and inconvenience, the same way in each place. Short hair or long, worn unbound (trailing down a back, or in a thick, curled nimbus) or bound (braided, pinned, tied). Thick-bodied or thin-, faces delicate-featured or coarse-, with cosmetics or none. A profusion of colors that would have been gender-marked in other places. All of this matched randomly with bodies curving at breast and hip or not, bodies that one moment moved in ways various non-Radchaai would call feminine, the next moment masculine. Twenty years of habit overtook me, and for an instant I despaired of choosing the right pronouns, the right terms of address. But I didn't need to do that here. I could drop that worry, a small but annoying weight I had carried all this time. I was home. #Quote by Ann Leckie
Gender quotes by Ed Case
#120. I believe that the fact and the reality of homosexuality and heterosexuality and of opposite and same-gender unions should be taught in our public schools without a value judgement system also being offered. #Quote by Ed Case
Gender quotes by Nelson Mandela
#121. Peace is not just the absence of conflict; peace is the creation of an environment where all can flourish regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, class, caste or any other social markers of difference. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Gender quotes by Sandra Bartky
#122. Women's body language speaks eloquently, though silently, of her subordinate status in a hierarchy of gender. #Quote by Sandra Bartky
Gender quotes by C.S. Lewis
#123. The two creatures were sexless. But he of Malacandra was masculine (not male); she of Perelandra was feminine (not female). Malacandra seemed to him to have the look of one standing armed, at the ramparts of his own remote archaic world, in ceaseless vigilance, his eyes ever roaming the earth-ward horizon whence his danger came long ago. "A sailor's look," Ransom once said to me; "you know ... eyes that are impregnated with distance." But the eyes of Perelandra opened, as it were, inward, as if they were the curtained gateway to a world of waves and murmurings and wandering airs, of life that rocked in winds and splashed on mossy stones and descended as the dew and arose sunward in thin-spun delicacy of mist. On Mars the very forests are of stone; in Venus the lands swim. For now he thought of them no more as Malacandra and Perelandra. He called them by their Tellurian names. With deep wonder he thought to himself, "My eyes have seen Mars and Venus. I have seen Ares and Aphrodite. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Gender quotes by Ngugi Wa Thiongo
#124. I believe that black has been oppressed by white; female by male; peasant by landlord; and worker by lord of capital. It follows from this that the black female worker and peasant is the most oppressed. She is oppressed on account of her color like all black people in the world; she is oppressed on account of her gender like all women in the world; and she is exploited and oppressed on account of her class like all workers and peasants in the world. Three burdens she has to carry. #Quote by Ngugi Wa Thiongo
Gender quotes by Hedi Slimane
#125. Hedi was and is still misspelled 'Heidi,' and my perception of genders ended up slightly out of focus from an early age. #Quote by Hedi Slimane
Gender quotes by Marisha Pessl
#126. I believe writers need to be chameleons, or like Meryl Streep, who can play all sorts of characters. A good writer should be able to cross gender lines and people of all social classes. So for me, writing from a male point of view would be a great challenge, that I would look forward to taking on. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
Gender quotes by Sheila Jeffreys
#127. The bonding of women that is woman-loving, or Gyn/affection, is very different from male bonding. Male bonding has been the glue of male dominance. It has been based upon recognition of the difference men see between themselves and women, and is a form of the behaviour, masculinity, that creates and maintains male power ... Male comradeship/bonding depends upon energy drained from women. #Quote by Sheila Jeffreys
Gender quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#128. Before she could rethink her actions, she slugged Mara as hard as she could in her perfect face. And even that was a light punishment for everything she'd done to Syn. Mara fell to the ground, sobbing. But she took no pity on her. "Syn may be too much of a gentleman to hit you, but I'm not. I'm not only ashamed to call you human, I'm completely disgusted that we share the same gender. You want to know the truth? The only filth in this room is you, and you're the one who doesn't deserve to breathe our air. Decent's got nothing to do with birthright. It's all about actions, and trust me, you're the lowest form I've ever met and I've taken in the worst scum imaginable. But I'd rather sit at the table with them than you any day." She #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Gender quotes by Bill Vaughan
#129. The clarity of gender makes possible the human dialectic. Let the lines of balanced tension go slack and the structure dissolves into the ooze of androgyny and narcissism. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Gender quotes by Chaz Bono
#130. People who don't have gender dysphoria aren't going to catch it by watching me dance on television. #Quote by Chaz Bono
Gender quotes by Stephanie Crayencour
#131. Un homme qui lit, ou qui pense, ou qui calcule, appartient a' l'espe' ce et non au sexe; dans ses meilleurs moments, il e chappe me me a' l'humain. A person who reads or thinks or calculates, belongs to a kind and not to a gender; in his or her best moments, he or she escapes being human. #Quote by Stephanie Crayencour
Gender quotes by E.M. Hamill
#132. Male? female? both?
No one's ever asked me that question, I see myself as neither. I'm something different all together. #Quote by E.M. Hamill
Gender quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#133. Once upon a time, Aristophanes relates, there were gods in the heavens and humans down on earth. But we humans did not look the way we look today. Instead, we each had two heads and four legs and four arms - a perfect melding, in other words, of two people joined together, seamlessly united into one being. We came in three different possible gender or sexual variations: male/female meldings, male/male meldings, and female/female meldings, depending on what suited each creature the best. Since we each had the perfect partner sewn into the very fabric of our being, we were all happy. Thus, all of us double-headed, eight-limbed, perfectly contented creatures moved across the earth much the same way that the planets travel through the heavens - dreamily, orderly, smoothly. We lacked for nothing; we had no unmet needs; we wanted nobody. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gender quotes by Bertolt Brecht
#134. If you join the rat race - you're in the race of rats. #Quote by Bertolt Brecht
Gender quotes by Chaz Bono
#135. So when I was about 13 or 14, I realized I was attracted to women and then made the assumption that I was a lesbian, and didn't realize that that wasn't the case. It was the fact that I was a man and a heterosexual man. The issue wasn't my sexual orientation, but rather my gender identity. #Quote by Chaz Bono
Gender quotes by Asa Don Brown
#136. For far too long, the female gender has been plagued with stereotypes, typecasting, as well as, subtle and blatant discrimination. #Quote by Asa Don Brown
Gender quotes by Alana Massey
#137. Sylvia was an early literary manifestation of a young woman who takes endless selfies and posts them with vicious captions calling herself fat and ugly. She is at once her own documentarian and the reflexive voice that says she is unworthy of documentation. She sends her image into the world to be seen, discussed, and devoured, proclaiming that the ordinariness or ugliness of her existence does not remove her right to have it. #Quote by Alana Massey
Gender quotes by Jan Morris
#138. I believe the transsexual urge, at least as I have experienced it, to be far more than a social compulsion, but biological, imaginative, and essentially spiritual, too. #Quote by Jan Morris
Gender quotes by Lauren Groff
#139. Also the fact that he's a guy. A girl screws around like Lotto and she's like diseased. Untouchable. But a guy can stick it to a million places and everyone just thinks he's doing what boys do. #Quote by Lauren Groff
Gender quotes by Tori Spelling
#140. Love is pure and true; love knows no gender. #Quote by Tori Spelling
Gender quotes by William Finn
#141. TRINA:
I'm tired of all the happy men who rule the world.
Their smile, their smile's their pedigree. They smile, but not for me.
I'd like the chance to hide
In their world.
I'm happy, but I'm not at ease with that whole world. #Quote by William Finn
Gender quotes by Isabel Allende
#142. It bothers them that instead of taking on the role of abandoned lover, I have become a happy wife. They relish seeing strong women like you and me humiliated. They cannot forgive us that we triumphed where so many others fail ... Courage is a virtue appreciated in a male but considered a defect in our gender. Bold women are a threat to a world that is out of balance, in favor of men. That is why they work so hard to mistreat and destroy us. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Gender quotes by Danielle Henderson
#143. Normally when I tell people I'm a gender studies major, they look at me like I'm studying Sanskrit or Latin. But now, NOW I had something to show my family, to possibly convince them that one day I would be employable. Look! People still like feminism! Or maybe they just really like Ryan Gosling's face. But they're getting that face with a dose of feminism! Like it or not. #Quote by Danielle Henderson
Gender quotes by Jill Soloway
#144. If you go to Europe, public bathrooms have any-gender sink areas and stalls for everyone to use. This is completely reasonable. It potentially involves the destruction of the urinal industry, which I think people would be happy to see go away. #Quote by Jill Soloway
Gender quotes by Jennifer Finney Boylan
#145. Straight women love a feminine sensibility in a man, but that love only goes up to, and unfortunately does not quite pass, the fact of his being an actual woman. #Quote by Jennifer Finney Boylan
Gender quotes by Leopoldo Gout
#146. To Learn is to create. Learning- whether it is programming, mathematics, art, music, poetry, biology, or chemistry- is all about breaking down walls and freeing the one thing that kept us alive: knowledge.

Knowledge expands freedom in all its forms. Knowledge breaks down walls. It liberates the oppressed. We are committed to knowledge. Knowledge as a hammer against classism, against sexism, against racism, against gender discrimination, against slavery, against bigotry, against war, against hatred. If there is darkness in the world, we will light it up. #Quote by Leopoldo Gout
Gender quotes by Hillary Clinton
#147. Equal pay is not yet equal. A woman makes 77 cents on a dollar and women of color make 67 cents ... We feel so passionately about this because we are not only running for office, but we each, in our own way, have lived it. We have seen it. We have understood the pain and the injustice that has come because of race, because of gender. And it's imperative that ... we make it very clear that each of us will address these issues. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Gender quotes by Gary Gygax
#148. Although the masculine form of appellation is typically used when listing the level titles of the various types of characters, these names can easily be changed to the feminine if desired. This is fantasy--what's in a name? In all but a few cases sex makes no difference to ability! #Quote by Gary Gygax
Gender quotes by Christopher Dodd
#149. Every American deserves to live in freedom, to have his or her privacy respected and a chance to go as far as their ability and effort will take them - regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or economic circumstances. #Quote by Christopher Dodd
Gender quotes by Jerusha Hess
#150. I never think that being a woman is so hard. Maybe don't think about your gender and be confident as you go forward rather than try to single yourself out as some underserved part of filmmaking. #Quote by Jerusha Hess
Gender quotes by Gloria Steinem
#151. You can hardly open a newspaper without seeing that a woman has been killed by a man for clearly gender-related reasons. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Gender quotes by Anita Hill
#152. If you think about the way the hearings were structured, the hearings were really about Thomas' race and my gender. #Quote by Anita Hill
Gender quotes by Mark Levin
#153. The free market promotes self-worth, self-sufficiency, shared values, and honest dealings, which enhance the individual, the family, and the community. It discriminates against no race, religion, or gender. #Quote by Mark Levin
Gender quotes by Julia Serano
#154. Of course, it is true that plastic surgeries and sex reassignments are "artificial," but then again so are the exercise bikes we work out on, the antiwrinkle moisturizers we smear on our faces, the dyes we use to color our hair, the clothes we buy to complement our figures, and the TV shows, movies, magazines, and billboards that bombard us with "ideal" images of gender, size, and beauty that set the standards that we try to live up to in the first place. The class systems based on attractiveness and gender are extraordinarily "artificial" - yet only those practices that seem to subvert those classes (rather than reaffirm them) are ever characterized as such. #Quote by Julia Serano
Gender quotes by Mary Pipher
#155. I do believe our culture is doing a bad job raising boys. The evidence is in the shocking violence of Paducah, Jonesboro, Cheyenne, and Edinboro. It's in our overcrowded prisons and domestic violence shelters. It's in our Ritalin-controlled elementary schools and alcohol-soaked college campuses. #Quote by Mary Pipher
Gender quotes by Mary Beard
#156. More interesting is another cultural connection this reveals: that unpopular, controversial or just plain different views when voiced by a woman are taken as indications of her stupidity. It is not that you disagree, it is that she is stupid. #Quote by Mary Beard
Gender quotes by Catherine Ryan Hyde
#157. If you want to see a man come to his senses, try something like, Do you happen to carry a rubber in your wallet? Did I mention I'm not on the pill? #Quote by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Gender quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#158. I believe in women uplifting other women. The only thing that makes our gender weaker, is the fact that we are the gender less likely to stand up for the other. We are the gender more likely to try and make another look bad, and when one of us is already bad, instead of being kind, we pound them into the ditches. And that's what makes us weak, nothing else. If we can change this, we can change the whole structure of our being female, I truly believe this. Personally, I grew up admiring other women and wanting to be friends with them, but unfortunately, I learned the hard way that they were the ones who would hurt me. Women hurt other women all too often, and that's a fact. I'd like to see not just us not hurting one another; but us actually making a conscious effort to be happy for another when she is happy, to hope the best for another when she has better, and to lift another up when she is down. We know that so many of us are harsh, cold and selfish, and we try to protect ourselves from one another, that's the reality. But it's also a reality that what is real can change. So that means we can change it. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Gender quotes by Mariah Nelson
#159. The act of sport remains a human act, unrelated to gender. #Quote by Mariah Nelson
Gender quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#160. Feminists who accept the claim made in The Book of Genesis, and, that God is a he, need to make their minds up. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Gender quotes by Clementine Ford
#161. In our current society, it is considered a weakness to be female and a treason to protest this. Highlighting inequality results in aggressive insults and threats, all of which are propped up by the repeated narrative now that women are 'playing the gender card'. And this is the final insult. That of all the unfair things associated with women - the violence and insults, the financial oppression, the very undermining of our worth as human beings - it is the acknowledgement of these inequalities that gives us some kind of unfair advantage over the men who benefit from them. #Quote by Clementine Ford
Gender quotes by Maurys Gaucho
#162. In the long run, We Realize that life without one gender,would end up boring #Quote by Maurys Gaucho
Gender quotes by Adam Yauch
#163. When I hear Obama speak he just seems really sincere and he just seems like somebody who actually has his heart and his motivation in the right place. Forget about color or race or gender or whatever, he's got his heart in the right place. #Quote by Adam Yauch
Gender quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#164. The Commander assigned jobs based on skills and intelligence, not on gender. #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Gender quotes by Regina Doman
#165. The boys at school are so degenerate that it makes one feel pessimistic about the future of the male gender in general. #Quote by Regina Doman
Gender quotes by Heather O'Neill
#166. All children are really orphans. At heart, a child has nothing to do with its parents, its background, its last name, its gender, its family trade. It is a brand-new person, and it is born with the only legacy that all individuals inherit when they open their eyes in this world: the
inalienable right to be free. #Quote by Heather O'Neill
Gender quotes by Michael Shermer
#167. According to her data, "no campaigns failed once they'd achieved the active and sustained participation of just 3.5 percent of the population - and lots of them succeeded with far less than that." Further, she notes, "Every single campaign that did surpass that 3.5 percent threshold was a nonviolent one. In fact, campaigns that relied solely on nonviolent methods were on average four times larger than the average violent campaign. And they were often much more representative in terms of gender, age, race, political party, class, and urban-rural distinctions. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Gender quotes by Greg Rucka
#168. Character is made up of a variety of different things. One of those elements is gender. #Quote by Greg Rucka
Gender quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#169. Maybe both of our societies are messed up, and they each only think one type of person is really a person. And the type of person they think is really a person is allowed to show imperfections and age ... whereas the type of person they think is an object should show no signs of being a person. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Gender quotes by Joyce Banda
#170. I don't remember a single day during the time I was minister of gender, foreign minister, vice-president and president when I saw anything on the part of the men that indicated they were undermining me. #Quote by Joyce Banda
Gender quotes by Soraya Chemaly
#171. We minimize our anger, calling it frustration, impatience, exasperation, or irritation, words that don't convey the intrinsic social and public demand that 'anger' does. We learn to contain our selves: our voices, hair, clothes, and, most importantly, speech. Anger is usually about saying "no" in a world where women are conditioned to say almost anything but "no. #Quote by Soraya Chemaly
Gender quotes by J.D. Robb
#172. I don't get it. Scratch, bite, squeal, slap. Why do women fight like that? They've got fists. It's embarrassing to our entire gender. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Gender quotes by Cheryl Bolen
#173. All the gentlemen accorded her the courtesy of standing when she entered the chamber. One second of recognition, then her gender would be completely forgotten when the discussions began.
~ From The Earl, the Vow, and the Plain Jane by Cheryl Bolen #Quote by Cheryl Bolen
Gender quotes by Kate Zambreno
#174. I think the key to writing the truth of our existences, so much of this is being incubated online, is examining the conflicts and the messiness, our sometimes dividedness, dealing with gender and other hierarchies, and also our identities outside of them, deeply personal and yet somehow critical and circumspect. #Quote by Kate Zambreno
Gender quotes by Anne Fortier
#175. The Amazons is a stupendous achievement
a long-anticipated centerpiece in the great puzzle of humankind. The story of these forbidden women, silenced for so long by the rigidity of traditional scholarship, is as exciting and surprising as a bestselling murder mystery; I simply couldn't put it down. Through scholarly brilliance and passion, Adrienne Mayor has opened the door to a forgotten world of gender equality, and her book ought to be required reading in every college history course. #Quote by Anne Fortier
Gender quotes by Will Oldham
#176. With women, you always have to make an educated decision to figure out what they're thinking. It's not one that's necessarily sympathetic, always. Of course, we're all human beings, but the gender thing is big thing. And a great thing. #Quote by Will Oldham
Gender quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#177. Women need to feel loved and men need to feel needed. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Gender quotes by Kate Bornstein
#178. Growing up we were secular Jews, but what I got out of Judaism at that time in my life was questions. Everything was a question. "Dad, is there a heaven? Is there a hell?" You never could get an answer. That informed a lot of my reasons for getting into Scientology, because they had all the answers. They said I was not my body, not my mind. I don't have a soul; I am an immortal soul. I've lived many lives and I'll live endlessly into the future, and as an immortal soul I have no gender. #Quote by Kate Bornstein
Gender quotes by Michael Ben Zehabe
#179. This feminine billboard of Middle-Eastern fashion stopped me on the street last month. She ran her hand over the seam of my jilbab, admiring the color and fabric. She only said a few words. 'We are living in a gender-quake, a modern sexodus. We have a duty to project dis female revolution in da way we dress. Come visit me at the Monkey Bar and tell me who tailors your outfits.' She's been my fashion role model ever since. #Quote by Michael Ben Zehabe
Gender quotes by Marissa Mayer
#180. There are probably industries where gender is more of an issue, but our industry is not one where I think that's relevant. #Quote by Marissa Mayer
Gender quotes by Dean Spade
#181. More conservative advocacy work often encourages portrayals of trans people as people who deserve rights. Deservingness, of course, corresponds to national racial, gender and ability norms. #Quote by Dean Spade
Gender quotes by March McCarron
#182. Don't," her knee narrowly missed connecting with his groin, "call me woman."
He smiled at her - his blood-stained teeth stark against his soot darkened face."Why?" She punched him in the jaw and he reeled, but stayed upright."Did the Chiona steal your gender as well as your likability? #Quote by March McCarron
Gender quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#183. Now, it is frequently asserted that, with women, the job does not come first. What (people cry) are women doing with this liberty of theirs? What woman really prefers a job to a home and family? Very few, I admit. It is unfortunate that they should so often have to make the choice. A man does not, as a rule, have to choose. He gets both. Nevertheless, there have been women ... who had the choice, and chose the job and made a success of it. And there have been and are many men who have sacrificed their careers for women ... When it comes to a choice, then every man or woman has to choose as an individual human being, and, like a human being, take the consequences. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Gender quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#184. Gender and class are different. Poor men still have the privileges of being men, even if they do not have the privileges of being wealthy. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Gender quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#185. I was arguing not that everyone should read books by ladies - though shifting the balance matters - but that maybe the whole point of reading is to be able to explore and also transcend your gender (and race and class and orientation and nationality and moment in history and age and ability) and experience being others. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Gender quotes by Michelle McNamara
#186. The male victims were born in the forties and fifties, a generation for whom therapy was mostly an alien concept. In the police files, gender roles are rigid and unambiguous. Detectives ask the women where they shop and the men about the locking mechanisms on the doors and windows. They drape blankets over the women's shoulders and ferry them to the hospital. The men are asked what they saw, not what they felt. Many of the male victims had military experience. They had toolsheds. They were doers and protectors who'd been robbed of their ability to do and protect. Their rage is in the details: one husband chewed the bindings off his wife's feet. #Quote by Michelle McNamara
Gender quotes by Soraya Chemaly
#187. Women are just as motivated by the desire for power as men; it's just that our cultural ideas about power don't associate it with femininity. #Quote by Soraya Chemaly
Gender quotes by Dianna Hardy
#188. A female who spoke her mind and called it like it was, was considered trouble. When a male did it, he was considered a leader and desirable. #Quote by Dianna Hardy
Gender quotes by Jane Ridley
#189. Historians who write about families are usually feminists who think in terms of gender relations. #Quote by Jane Ridley
Gender quotes by Sarah B. Pomeroy
#190. Misogyny was born of fear of women. #Quote by Sarah B. Pomeroy
Gender quotes by Ertharin Cousin
#191. The majority of small-holder farmers in Africa are women and, in urban areas, you're primarily looking at women-led households. So we can't solve hunger if we don't have gender-sensitive programming that addresses access to opportunities for women, whether it's through education or tools for cooking, like solar-powered stoves. #Quote by Ertharin Cousin
Gender quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#192. Some uncomfortable moments later Day told me she had a prior engagement and was running late. It seemed she had made girl plans with a girlfriend of hers to do some girly things girls do when they get together with others of their kind. I said I understood, and I did. There is no doubt in my mind of the gender of Day's companion this night, and perhaps other nights I did not know about. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Gender quotes by Bella Forrest
#193. You're a good liar."
He gritted his teeth and held my gaze, Sometimes that's what's required to do what is right in Patrus. #Quote by Bella Forrest
Gender quotes by Lucinda Blanchard
#194. But I make a decision. This will be the last time I shed a tear about my baby's gender. I will pull myself together. Throughout #Quote by Lucinda Blanchard
Gender quotes by Condoleezza Rice
#195. People notice if you are black. People notice if you are female. We are certainly not either colorblind or gender-blind in this country, so I'm not suggesting that it isn't a factor. But I think in the final analysis, people will take a look at the positions, and they'll take a look at the issues. #Quote by Condoleezza Rice
Gender quotes by Megan Smith

Gender quotes by Laverne Cox

Gender quotes by Gloria Wekker
#198. Decolonial feminism arrives at a similar conclusion that gender is not an innocent concept. This school of thought points to gender as a colonial introduction. As a concept gender did not exist among indigenous and black people; more fluid categorisations prevailed #Quote by Gloria Wekker
Gender quotes by Janet Mock
#199. Becoming is the action that births our womanhood, rather than passive act of being born (an act none of us has a choice in). This short, powerful statement assured me that I have the freedom, in spite of and because of my birth, body, race, gender expectations, and economic resources, to define myself for myself and for others. #Quote by Janet Mock
Gender quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#200. I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
