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's a computerized voice, so it's kind of hard to understand, but here's an example. Quote:"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. The area code "669" is for San Jose, California. But they also set up numbers for New York and Chicago if you prefer.
The New York number is 917-512-2833. The Chicago number is 312-697-1778. It's supposed to work if you send a text too, but it didn't when we tried. (Jezebel)
