Alison nominated me for the 3-Day Quote challenge, and I thank her. But I am going to do some twists on it, because I am a contrary little shit.
First of all, I am only doing one day because I don’t have the attention span to do three.
Secondly, I am going to do make this into a little quiz as compensation. So, here’s the quote.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Now we can debate whether this is a bold statement regarding self-esteem or this is a perfect excuse for victim blaming. (I think it is both depending on the context.) But the question I have is, did she really say or write this?
Now, don’t cheat and Google it. If I were omniscient and you did Google it, I would be all Judgy McJudgerpants on your ass. Hey, if I am giving myself superpowers, I would have telekinetic ones too, and I would do more to you than bend your spoons.
It didn’t help that I had a dad who used to yell at the TV, “He’s rubbing the damn spoon!”
Anyway, back to Eleanor. Did she say it? Write it? Cast your vote down below. I’ll give the answer later today in the comments.
