    and if Parker didn't say/write it, she should have. :-D

    Seriously, no one has found a direct written source for the quote. It may have been an off-the-cuff verbal witticism to friends, which later found its way into print as an attributed quote (it may have been Bennet Cerf - who ironically was responsible for publishing Atlas Shrugged - who viralized it).

    Not your body,
    Then it's
    Not your choice
    And it's
    None of your damn business!

      I didn't realize that the quote was part of the Oral Tradition. :)

      I've liked it for a long time, though.  I'm happy to have a chance to finally share it with some other people, especially some who clearly appreciated it too.
