All Gloria Steinem wants for Christmas is “an abject apology from Donald Trump.”

That’s actually number 10 on the wish list she posted on her Facebook page yesterday. Among Trump’s offenses are “daring to rate women as no longer Tens when he himself has never been a One” and “pretending he ever hit a home run when actually, he was born on Third Base—and oh, yes, setting the hair weave industry all the way back to Rogaine.” 

Apart from the fact that it’s delightful to see a feminist icon participating in the phenomenon of sharing a list on Facebook because someone nominated her to do it, Steinem also wishes very wisely. She wants Uber to “to stop charging for the weather,” deploying its controversial surge-pricing when it rains or snows. She wants “any young men who buy a gun to be treated like young women who seek an abortion.” And she also included a shoutout to Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors:

I want people to know that the great gift of Black Lives Matter was created by 3 young black women: Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors—and that has led to 3 great organizing guidelines: 

1) Lead with love 

2) Low ego, high impact 

3) Move at the speed of trust 

Gives you faith in the future, doesn’t it?
