Gives Feminist Bookstore a Whimsical Makeover

You Kick It?
In a pair of Ally McBeal episodes late last season,
Renee kickboxed her date, Rivers, because he did not stop his sexual
advances when she told him to. He ended up with broken bones; she
ended up with assault charges.
"You're interesting, awesome, talented, beautiful,
exciting..." - these being the reasons why he did not want to

to speak my mind and take up my space.
