Karen on feminism
Karen in the BBC sitcom Outnumbered (the wonderful Ramona Marquez) is a feminist genius. Here, she is discussing with her mother why life is unfair for women, because they can’t grow beards.
Mum: Do you want to grow a beard? Karen: Well I might want to be a… tugboat captain or a, um… an ayatollah. Mum: Well, you’d make a very good ayatollah. Anyway, women can do things that men can’t do, women can have babies. Mum: Yes, but I’d rather have a beard or a moustache than a baby, because then you can just shave it off if you change your mind, and you can’t do that with a baby.
