Tweet of the Day: ‘Feminist’ yearbook quote goes viral

Well, they love it over at Huffington Post.  They really, really love it.  They want to carve it in chocolate and binge on it for, like, hours and hours.

It’s hard to do this with a straight face, but here goes.  A recent graduate from Oak Hills High in California chose a quote to go with her yearbook photo, and an admiring friend shared the quote on Twitter.  HuffPo introduces the event as foll0ws:

Future high school seniors of the world, you have some major competition when it comes to memorable yearbook quotes.

Twitter user @casualnosebleed shared a photo of a yearbook quote chosen by her close friend Caitlyn Cannon on Tuesday, and in just one day, the image was retweeted almost 4,000 times. In her Twitter bio, Cannon describes herself as a “feminist” and “really gay.” Her senior quote sums that up quite perfectly.

What did Ms. Cannon say that was so memorable?  Your Tweet of the Day:


An emerging fan club for the young graduate can’t get enough.  


I do note — hating to be curmudgeonly, but logic is our friend — that if men are good and rich, then even women making 75 cents to a man’s dollar would also be rich.  There is, moreover, the option of marrying a man, which statistically is by far the most successful model for making both men and women rich.

But then there’s also the old-fashioned point that wealth isn’t the key to happiness.  That point does tend to get lost when the prevailing ethic is one of achieving ecstasy and fulfillment through complaining about the wealth of others.

May Caitlyn Cannon and her friends and admirers learn wisdom, and find happiness.
