Hard to find a short representative quote. This is about how we internalize patriarchy, how we tilt everything toward the white man in our heads. Let's name that. Let's stop doing it.
I’ll tell you this: I have not written anything of consequence since my daughter was born. [...]
Why would that be? I think it has something to do with the fact that I don’t wander in the desert much anymore. I spend my days with a baby and that, patriarchy says, is not the stuff of art. Once again I am a girl and not a writer. No one said this. No one has to. I am saying it to myself. That’s the terrible efficiency of gaslighting.
