So I was trying to figure all that out, and I felt a little confused, and I said so on my blog,

所以我一直都想弄清楚这是怎么一回事,我感到有些困惑,也有写在博客上。

and I said that I wanted to start a website for teenage girls that was not this kind of one-dimensional strong character empowerment thing

我说我想,为青少年女生办一个网站,不是那种只展现单一的强势特点的。

because I think one thing that can be very alienating about a misconception of feminism is that girls then think that to be a feminist,

因为我认为对女权主义的误解,会让女孩们望而却步,她们会认为作为女权主义者,

they have to live up to being perfectly consistent in your beliefs, never being insecure, never having doubts, having all of the answers.

必须做到对自己的信仰始终如一,绝不能缺乏自信,绝不能心存疑虑,要无所不知。

And this is not true, and, actually, reconciling all the contradictions I was feeling became easier once I understood that feminism was not a rulebook but a discussion, a conversation, a process,

但其实并非如此,实际上,一旦我明白了女权主义不是一本规则手册,而是一种探讨,一场对话和一个过程,我对各种矛盾的调和就变得容易多了。

and this is a spread from a zine that I made last year when I-- I mean, I think I've let myself go a bit on the illustration front since. But, yeah.

这是我去年办的一本杂志里的两页,我是说,打那时起我就已经进军插图界了,不过,好吧。

So I said on my blog that I wanted to start this publication for teenage girls and ask people to submit their writing, their photography, whatever, to be a member of our staff.

所以我就在博客上说我想为青少年女生办一本读物,并邀请大家投稿,文章,照片,什么都行,来加入我们的团队。

I got about 3,000 emails. My editorial director and I went through them and put together a staff of people, and we launched last September.

我收到了大约3千封邮件,我和我的编辑主任读了这些信,并组建了一个团队,于去年九月创刊。

And this is an excerpt from my first editor's letter, where I say that Rookie, we don't have all the answers, we're still figuring it out too,

这是一段我首位编辑来信的摘录,上面说我们“菜鸟”杂志不是无所不知,我们也在探索当中,

but the point is not to give girls the answers, and not even give them permission to find the answers themselves,

但重点不在于为女孩们提供答案,更不是为了给她们自己寻找答案的许可。

but hopefully inspire them to understand that they can give themselves that permission, they can ask their own questions, find their own answers, all of that,

而是希望能让她们了解探索的主动权在她们自己手里,她们可以提出自己的问题,找出自己的答案,我相信以上种种,

and Rookie, I think we've been trying to make it a nice place for all of that to be figured out.

以及我们把“菜鸟”杂志做成一个为我们解决各种困惑的好的平台。
