"I grew up in a violent household. I got it from my dad and gave it to my brother."
Oh i’m so glad! You two are perfect for each other! I’ve always thought that someday, if you just sort of turned around and opened your eyes, that you’d see it. And now you have, I’m just so damn happy! You’re not gonna die alone. I mean, somebody will be there! Somebody will know! Somebody will find the body, and call the police, and-

In a recent study [this book was written in 1986, so that’s relative], some 2,000 children in grades three through twelve were asked a simple question: If you woke up tomorrow and discovered that you were a (boy) (girl), how would your life be different? And despite more than a decade of consciousness-raising on the subject of sex bias, the responses from both boys /and girls/ reveal a distressing contempt for the female gender.
The elementary-school boys, in clear horror, often gave names to their answers like “The Disaster” or “The Fatal Dream.” They then went on to say:
“If I were a girl, I’d be stupid and weak as a string.” Or, “If I woke up and I was a girl, I would hope it was a bad dream and go back to sleep.” Or, “If I were a girl, everybody would be better than me, because boys are better than girls.” Or, “If I were a girl, I’d kill myself.”
Boys felt that, as girls, they would have to be overly concerned about their physical appearance (“I couldn’t be a slob any more - I’d have to smell pretty”); that their work would be trivial (“I would have to cook, be a mother and yucky stuff like that”); that their activities would be restricted (“I would have to hate snakes”); and that they would not be treated as well. The girls, alas, concurred in all these judgments.
"If I were a boy," wrote one third grader, "I could do stuff better than I do now." And, "If I were a boy, my whole life would be easier." And, "If I were a boy, I could run for president." And - heartbreakingly - "If I were a boy, my daddy might have loved me."

I really didn’t notice that he had a funny nose.
And he certainly looked better all dressed up in fancy clothes.
He’s not nearly as attractive as he seemed the other night.
So I think I’ll just pretend that this glass slipper feels too tight.
