bell hooks to the rescue

I don’t believe in giving out fake numbers (if a man is being a creep don’t indulge him). Nevertheless this amusing “fake number” international service gives a caller/texter a quote by feminist bell hooks. Proceeds go to a Latin women’s shelter.

Response: “If any female feels she need anything beyond herself to legitimate and validate her existence, she is already giving away her power to be self-defining, her agency.” – bell hooks

Text: Ok but how about a date?

Response: “Sometimes, people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognise your power. Not because they do not see it, but because they see it and they do not want it to exist.” – bell hooks.
