But damn if I didn't want to. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have a huge geek crush on Stephen Lewis, Canadian extraordinaire and former UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS to Africa who came to UCLA to speak on Friday. I have read many of his speeches. I have never seen him in person.
OH MY GOD!!!! He's amazing. He's passionate. He's an awesome orator. I'm just infatuated by his big ol' brain. He spoke for a good 40 minutes and I never looked away. I might not have blinked.
Here's a few quotes,
"Driving the epidemic is a predatory sense of male entitlement leading to levels of sexual violence that are hallucinatory."
"The single most important struggle is the struggle for gender equality."
You know I led the standing O. I shook his hand. I feel like Marsha Brady.
He is a worthy and ethical and incredible man. He should win the Nobel Peace Prize.
