So just in case anyone didn't know
is my spirit animal
I've been waiting for this book to come out
Now that I've got my hands on it
I've been trying not too read it all in one sitting
savoring it like a fine wine
This quote kept drifting back to me
while I lay in bed last night
This is what I tell young women who ask me for career advice.
People are going to try to trick you. To make you feel that
you are in competition with one another. “You’re up for a
promotion. If they go with a woman, it’ll be between you
” Don’t be fooled. You’re not in competition
with other women. You’re in competition with everyone.
I encourage them to always wear a bra. Even if you don’t
think you need it, just… you know what? You’re never going to regret
it. My dream for the future is that sketch comedy shows become
a gender-blind meritocracy of whoever is really the funniest.
You might see four women and two men. You might see five men
and a YouTube video of a kitten sneezing. Once we know
we’re really open to all the options, we can proceed with
Whatever’s the Funniest… which will probably involve farts.
