I used to believe that politicians were honest; I was so naive...

Until about 1982, when I was 12, I thought that Feminism had fixed everything so that there was no more sexism. I was assured by my parents that it didn't matter that I was a girl, I could do anything, because the world was feminist now.

And then when the Equal Rights Amendment didn't pass, imagine my surprise and horror. And then gradually getting to see and experience painful sexism especially after puberty! Moving to Texas sure didn't help.

I also thought some vague hippielike partner to "Feminism", which took place in "The 60s" had fixed racism as well. I don't think I ever heard of the actual civil rights movement until I was at least 12 or 13. Nor did I know of any other feminist movements until maybe late high school.

When I was 10, Ronald Reagan was elected president. My dad said that George Bush would take us into a war, so I was terrified that if anything happened to Reagan we would be in WW3 and the whole earth would be blown up with nuclear bombs.

Once during a general election a political reporter asked a candidate "How was your campaign?"

I thought that they were asking about the fizzy wine!

I used to believe that everyone on tv (the news specifically) was famous because they were really great, good people. This is why I carried around a picture of Saddam Hussein with me at school. I wonder why my parents never bothered to stop me from doing this.

I thought that ex-presidents always had to wear and "X," and if you called them President or ex-President, they would arrest you.
