"In all seriousness Ms. Smith," Barbie said, "Why are 3rd wave feminists teaching young girls to chant things like 'I don't need a Brian or a Steven?' Shouldn't we be teaching little girls and little boys to get along? There is already enough division in the world, so why should we teach little girls to segregate themselves from boys in such a negative way? Don't get me wrong, yes we girls must be strong and we must fight for what we want and need, but why should I shun males for helping me? I won't always have the answer to things, but that doesn't make me stupid. The truth is men and women need each other. So why should we undermine males in order for us females to feel good? We don't like being undermined so why should we do the same thing to them? Isn't that vengeful behavior? And quite frankly a bad lesson to little girls?" Ms Smith gave her a sincere smile, "I like how sincere you are Barbie. It's never good to enter an extreme. Resentment is something people often times confuse for progression. But when your agenda stems from resentment it will only lead to more hatred and resentment and it will ultimately create divide. Neither boy or girl is greater than the other. We all have things that a majority of one group will be better at, but that doesn't mean it'll always be that way. There are always exceptions. And you're right, men shouldn't be made to look stupid in order to validate our own intelligence, we just shine on our own without having to make someone else look weak or feel bad. I guess there are just some ladies out there that have grown so angry that they've unfortunately grown blinded to this hypocrisy their own anger has created. And this is coming from one lady to another. I guess all we can do is hope young ladies know that they have the power to be great, but like anything else in this world, you just have to work hard at it. And not expect things to be handed to you just because your kind has suffered at some point. We can't move forward, if we constantly keep looking back." Barbie nodded, "Thank you teacher."
