Ladies, remember this number: 669-221-6251. Here’s why:
Women have been giving out fake phone numbers to sleazy guys pretty much since the phone was INVENTED, but now there’s a way to do it AND drop a little feminist knowledge on them.
Someone behind a website called “Feminist Phone Intervention” set up a fake number and when you call, it plays a random quote from a feminist author named Bell Hooks. It also replies with a feminist message if you text it.
It’s a computerized voice, so it’s kind of hard to understand, but here’s an example. “If any female feels she need anything beyond herself to legitimate and validate her existence, she is already giving away her power to be self-defining, her agency.”
If you’re gonna try it, you should probably memorize it first, so they don’t catch on. Again, that’s 669-221-6251.
