Alan K. Simpson
I have a man and a woman in the same body; I have the male and female values in the same body.
I'd love to see more equal representation of female and male cartoonists on the comics page.
When you know what the male species is looking for - 'I'm not into a redhead,' 'I don't want a fat chick,' - I have to tell them that X won't date you unless you're this. I'm just the messenger.

I've heard it said that the most dangerous animal on the planet is the adolescent male.
It's time for male leaders to not only ask for binders of qualified women, but to re-write the definition of 'qualified.' The best man for the job, may in fact, be a woman, whose biography is not traditional, but is rich with experiences and skills that are not necessarily learned either in school or on the job.
Madeleine M. Kunin
When I perform on stage I become those male bullies, those dominators from my childhood. That's probably why it's so scary, because they scared me.

Women and men grow up with both sexes. Our mothers and fathers mean a lot to us, so it's just a question of finding a balance between their influences. I've found mine. And it tends to be more on the male side. I mean male side the way we understand it in the West.
