Quote of the Day

I found to this quote just now on some person’s blog. It’s by Simone de Beauvior, the french feminist and philosopher.

One is not born, but rather becomes a woman

I must say, this is a quote of the day because there is some really deep ideas going around here. And I happen to think also if you substitute man for woman in the quote, you’ll not get the whole inteded meaning.

    you think so?
    i think if you put “man” in, it would be equally valid. what exactly are you thinking of when you say that one becomes a woman? feminity, grace, the ability to sit prettily in a skirt, and smile in a sincere manner?
    i wonder. not meaning to be rude or offensive, just wondering.

    hmm…thinking in response.

    It has less to do with how I view women, more to do with how i experienced ‘maleness’

    I would think that a guy’s ‘maleness’ is thrust upon him rather than ‘developed’ out him socially speaking, which is why I wouldn’t substitute man in the quote.
