Even before I knew about feminism, men would irritate me and I seldom gave them the benefit of the doubt. The confusion, the utter shock - people, men and women, couldn't grasp why I'd possibly feel this way about men. Very crazy since most people feel this way about women.

One of my best friends has always been this way. I always knew she was wiser than me long before I found feminism. Now I don’t know how it took so long for the scales to fall off my eyes.
