Guys! It's 2013!

So the future must have arrived. Do we become modern just because time passes? Is there a deadline for legalising equal marriage, ending racial abuse and learning grammar? If by “become modern” people mean “fulfill the liberal agenda”, it doesn’t just happen by itself – we have to do something about it. Guys! It’ll be 2014 soon! And we expect nothing less than gender equality – and hoverboards.

I think we live in modern times. (Dawn O’Porter on why she tweaked her name and didn’t take her husband’s – he’s Chris O’Dowd. 2013-04-24)
