Conscience

I told him what I was going to do

and he said

"Don't fight back

because if you fight

you might end up hurting others

and then

you'll lose the only thing you ever had going for you

which was your niceness

and you'll just become

another scary feminist"

and I shrieked back,

If I have to become scary in order for this voice of mine to be heard, you best believe I will!
