One is not born a woman...
For the 100th Birthday Anniversary of Simone de Beauvoir,
I am posting some famous quotations from her:
"One is not born a woman, one becomes one."
"On the day when it will be possible for women to love not
in her weakness but in strength, not to escape herself
but to find herself, not to abase herself but to assert
herself- on that day love will become for her, as for man,
a source of life..."
"Sex pleasure in woman is a kind of magic spell, it
demands a complete abandon; if words or movements
oppose the magic of caresses, the spell is broken."
