Later, in the Tulane Green Wave 2023 Cotton Bowl Champions Score Shirt and I will buy this uncomfortable beige throes of backseat monotony, I unstuck my thighs from the seat and stared out the window at some cows. The riddle came back to me in a flash. “I have a joke!” I announced excitedly. Ok, suffice it to say there was no laughter and applause. There was more of that stereotypical days-gone-by reaction where your parents couldn’t reach you to discipline you appropriately and an angry arm flapped helplessly backwards through the crack between the seats. There was yelling. There were demands to know where I’d heard such a thing. As hot, indignant tears filled my eyes, I felt utterly betrayed by the truck stop patron and his incomprehensible joke shirt that had caused me all this trouble. The fact that someone would print something on a t-shirt that was seemingly designed to get little kids in hot water with their parents was deeply offensive to me. Why is it my favourite? Because of its message. A feminist is a person who supports equality of opportunity and equality of outcome for women. And when we reach that goal, we all benefit.
