Famous quotes containing the words checks and/or gear:
“Procrastination and impatience form a system of checks and balances.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
“For women ... bras, panties, bathing suits, and other stereotypical gear are visual reminders of a commercial, idealized feminine image that our real and diverse female bodies cant possibly fit. Without these visual references, each individual womans body demands to be accepted on its own terms. We stop being comparatives. We begin to be unique.”
