Ali: A lot of boys me know is trying to get their girlfriends into feminism. Do you think that is right?

Ali: Do you think all girls should try feminism at least once?

Sue: Well, girls today often don't realise how much they've benefited from feminism.

Ali: But do you think it is right when they try feminism when they is drunk at a party or whatever with a few mates?

Sue: What does 'trying feminism' mean?

Ali: You know, try a bit of feminism and when they is sober the next day they get back together with their boyfriends?

Sue: What, being lesbian? Are you talking about sexuality?

Ali: Aiii, for real.
