Caitlin Moran Quotes

As Ive not been kissed before, Im not really sure how you activate this function on a man.
— Caitlin Moran —

Any action a woman engages in from a spirit of joy, and within a similarly safe and joyous environment, falls within the city-walls of feminism. A girl has a right to dance how she wants, when her favourite record comes on.

Caitlin Moran Quotes: Men have made the world and theyve made
Men have made the world. And they've made a brilliant job of it. I love men. You know, men, you built Paris and you invented The Beatles, and, you know, and you've taught dogs to say 'sausages.' You know, I love your world. Thank you for it.

— Caitlin Moran

I once went into a meeting, and every woman put her a million-pound bag on the table. Then I'm there with my tote bag and anorak. And I'm like, well, I'm still the most important person in the room right now.

— Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran Quotes: If youre not a confident person pretend
If you're not a confident person, pretend to be one.

— Caitlin Moran

Flyaway, problem hair is the enemy of feminism, and was probably invented by the Man to crush Susan Sontag.

— Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran Quotes: Over eating is the addiction choice of
Over-eating is the addiction choice of carers, and that's why it's come to be regarded as the lowest-ranking of all the addictions.

— Caitlin Moran

As far as I'm concerned, you're a feminist by default if you're born in the Western world right now.

— Caitlin Moran

Most women I know love the idea of fashion, but the practicalities that go with it are just distressing.

— Caitlin Moran

I never wanted to be famous. It was amusing at first, but now I hate it. I just wanted to be respected by people I respect. And I wanted to be rich. It's best to get rich, then you can do what you want.

— Caitlin Moran

But I am, personally, not a gambler. I wouldn't spend £1 on the lottery, let alone take a punt on a pregnancy. The stakes are far, far too high. I can't agree with a society that would force me to bet on how much I could love under duress.

— Caitlin Moran

If you would feel comfortable going around to someone's house at the end of a long day saying, "I'm just going to take my bra off," you know you are intimate friends.

— Caitlin Moran

So what do you do when you build yourself up - only to realise you built yourself with the wrong things?

— Caitlin Moran

It's technically impossible for a woman to argue against feminism. Without feminism you wouldn't be allowed to have a debate on a woman's place in society. You'd be too busy giving birth on the kitchen floor
biting down on a wooden spoon, so as not to disturb the men's card game
before going back to hoeing the rutabaga field.

— Caitlin Moran

The real cost of living is dying, and we're spending days like millionaires: a week here, a month there, casually spunked until all you have left are the two pennies on your eyes.

— Caitlin Moran

What art should be about,' they will say, 'is revealing exquisite and resonant truths about the human condition.' Well, to be honest - no, it shouldn't. I mean, it can occasionally, if it wants to; but really, how many penetrating insights to human nature do you need in one lifetime? Two? Three? Once you've realised that no one else has a clue what they're doing, either, and that love can be totally pointless, any further insights into human nature just start getting depressing really.

— Caitlin Moran

The only plan I've come up with is writing. I can write, because writing-unlike choreography, architecture, or conquering kingdoms-is a thing you can do when you're lonely and poor, and have no infrastructure, i.e., a ballet troupe or some cannons. Poor people can write. It's one of the few things poverty, and lack of connections, cannot stop you doing.

— Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran Quotes: I am 13 years old i am 13 stone i have
I am 13 years old, I am 13 stone, I have no money, no friends, and boys throw gravel at me. It's my birthday, and I went to bed at 7.15pm.

— Caitlin Moran

Death is not a release, but an incentive. The more focused you are on your death, the more righteously you live your life.

— Caitlin Moran

While motherhood is an incredible vocation, it has no more inherent worth than a childless woman simply being who she is, to the utmost of her capabilities. To think otherwise betrays a belief that being a thinking, creative, productive, and fulfilled woman is, somehow, not enough. That no action will ever be the equal of giving birth.

— Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran Quotes: N the 21st century wedont need to march
N the 21st century, we
don't need to march against size zero models, risible pornography,
lap-dancing clubs and Botox. We don't need to riot, or go on hunger
strike. There's no need to throw ourselves under a horse, or even a
donkey. We just need to look it in the eye, squarely, for a minute,
and then start laughing at it. We look hot when we laugh. People
fancy us when they observe us giving out relaxed, earthy chuckles.

— Caitlin Moran

When did feminism become confused with Buddhism? Why on earth have I, because I'm a woman, got to be nice to everyone? And why have women-on top of everything else-got to be particularly careful to be "lovely" and "supportive" to each other at all times? This idea of the "sisterhood" I find, frankly, illogical, I don't build in a 20 percent "Genital Similarity Regard Bonus" if I meet someone else wearing a bra. If someone's an arsehole, someone's an arsehole-regardless of whether we're both standing in the longer

Caitlin Moran Quotes: Or perhaps we should just junk the whole
Or perhaps we should just junk the whole idea of getting
married in the first place. I'm generally against anything where
you're supposed to change your name. When else do you get
named something else? On joining a nunnery, or becoming a porn
star. As an ostensibly joyful celebration of love, that's bad company
to be in.

— Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran Quotes: Rock music needs very supportive bras i
Rock music needs very supportive bras, I note, holding onto my bosoms as I leap up and down, doggedly. This is something the music press had never mentioned. They have so little guidance for girls.

— Caitlin Moran

There is no crueler or more inappropriate present to give a child than estrogen and a big pair of tits.

— Caitlin Moran

Now I know what happens at a gig, I will be ready for it, next time
I will come in just a T-shirt and shorts and books, and fight my way to the front, like a quietly determined soldier, and then let the band take my head off. I want to walk into rooms like that every night, with a sense of something happening.

— Caitlin Moran

And yet, despite the multiplicity of times we've done it, it is still a funny, exultant, true thing - where for a short time you turn into something else and fly; where you stop fretting and wanting, and are simply alight with joy - and all while never venturing beyond the walls of your room. And I would put our continued success down to one simple thing. At the end of every tumbling session, one of us will turn to the other and say, "Thank you very much. That was very pleasant. Very pleasant indeed. My dear, I am much obliged to you."
Because at the end of the day, that is the hottest sex tip of all: gratitude. That you've found someone who wants to do that thing, with you, and no government has yet found a way to charge you VAT on it. You can set fire to the sky, and not be charged a penny.
Sometimes, it's great being a human.

— Caitlin Moran

In any just world, I should have been able to kick the front room door open, like Lord Flashheart in Blackadder, and shout "OH YEAH. THAT HYMEN'S GONE. DON'T YOU WORRY ABOUT THAT," and then run round the room, getting high fives from my parents and siblings.

— Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran Quotes: What are you doing with your face krissi
What are you doing with your face?" Krissi asked, as I made myself a cheese sandwich in the kitchen. Having been away for two nights, I had a sudden, giddying perspective on just how much margarine seemed permanently smeared on our worktops. This whole room was a health risk. "What do you mean?" I asked-increasing the smugness as I sliced the cheese. "Your face-it's clearly telling me to slap it," Krissi said, staring at me. "It's communicating with me on a frequency you can't hear. It's begging me to slap both cheeks at the same time, like the Three Stooges.

— Caitlin Moran

But they didn't. Because simply being able to vote isn't the same as true equality. It's difficult to see the glass ceiling because it's made of glass. Virtually invisible. What we need is for more birds to fly above it and shit all over it, so we can see it properly. In

— Caitlin Moran

Just go around being alive, and pointing at things. We're just, simply, in the world. It had never occurred to me what a wonderful thing this was.

— Caitlin Moran

Nearly everything so far has been the creation of men-and a liberal, right-on denial of it makes everything more awkward and difficult in the long run. Pretending that women have had a pop at all this before but just ultimately didn't do as well as the men, that the experiment of female liberation has already happened but floundered, gives strength to the belief that women simply aren't as good as men, full stop. That things should just carry on as they are-with the world shaped around, and honoring, the priorities, needs, whims, and successes of men. Women are over, without having even begun. When the truth is that we haven't begun at all. Of course we haven't. We'll know it when we have.

— Caitlin Moran

First world babies are eating this planet like termites.

— Caitlin Moran

Like books before them, each of these songs, I know, could in the end prove to be the thing I need: a way out. A place to go.

— Caitlin Moran

I am thrilled by the idea of killing myself. It seems like such a gratifyingly noble thing to do. A monster has come to town-me-and there is only one hero who can kill it: me.

— Caitlin Moran

Within living memory of this country, men could rape their wives: women were not seen as a separate sexual entity, with the right of refusal.

— Caitlin Moran

Women's bodies do not give up their babies so easily, and so silently, is the message. The heart will always remember.

— Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran Quotes: As ive not been kissed before im not
As I've not been kissed before, I'm not really sure how you activate this function on a man.

— Caitlin Moran

Krissi starts dancing toward me in a showy disco-jog. Still a bit hurt, I do vague, place-holding disco fingers at him.

— Caitlin Moran

Sitting in seat 14A, in the sun, I float on a full-moon, tidal joy unlike anything I've ever experienced. I am getting incredibly high on a single, astounding fact: that it's always sunny above the clouds. Always. That every day on Earth- every day I have ever had- was secretly sunny after all ... I feel like I've just flown 600 miles per hour head-on into the most beautiful metaphor of my life: If you fly high enough, if you get above the clouds, it's never-ending summer.

— Caitlin Moran

Caitlin Moran Quotes: Life is really the only place you can
Life is really the only place you can learn the most important lessons about how to get dressed and to be happy.

— Caitlin Moran

I feel in my bones that Lady Gaga is a true strident feminist and good for my soul - but how do I square this with the fact that she's constantly walking around in her bra and pants, even at, like, airports and stuff, where even nudists wear a fleece and linen drawstring trousers?
