Someday there will be girls and women whose name will no longer mean the mere opposite of the male, but something in itself, something that makes one think not of any complement and limit, but only of life and reality: the female human being.
This advance will transform the love experience…change it from the ground up, and reshape it into a relationship that is meant to be between one human being and another…
And this more human love…will resemble what we are now preparing painfully and with great struggle: the love that consists in this: that two solitudes protect and border and greet each other.
-Rainer Maria Rilke (Reading from my sister’s wedding.)
