Claire, as we prepare to get off the plane: What does feminist mean?

Me: Oh my god, Claire. Feminism is the belief that women are human.

C: …but women are human.

Me: *expressive shrug*

C, firmly: People who don’t think so are crazy.

Me, risking stinkeye from fellow passengers: We don’t use that word, honey. It’s not fair to people with mental illnesses to liken them to non-feminists.
