"She's All Super Feminist Like You"

Back in the room full of clerks. Chatting about this, that and the other thing. The new guy is trying to find a room to rent and the clerks are offering suggestions. His horror stories are truly appalling. The couple who wanted to rent the room but didn't want anyone to know he lived there, promising to hold onto his check until he returns with cash a week later and then cashing the check anyway. Or the man who signed a written agreement and then reneged when new guy said he was gay. Appalling what people do to each other without a thought.

Outrage was expressed. He fixed his sweet young face with those blue eyes on the person facing him and told the story of his friend's roommate who is ready to call the housing authority on the last landlord. "She's all super feminist like you ..."

Eyes met eyes and laughter bubbled out, "Oh honey. I am nothing compared to other women who call themselves feminists."

Equality is the call of the day. Equal to make choices and equal to celebrate the true differences.

More from the room full of clerks-- hopefully, this will be a recurring scene.
