  1. > On Twitter she added: “She’s the only friend I’d skip school for.”

    Clever girl Malala. Also somewhat perplexed by apparently quite a few people not knowing who she is. Just several years ago she was at least as big on Reddit as Greta at her peak. And I don’t remember anybody disliking her in any way, maybe some zealots aside.

  2. Uh oh Malala is a socialist so now the media is gonna drop her like a hot potato too.

    > Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has met human rights activist Malala Yousafzai for the first time during a visit to Oxford University.

    > In another post on Instagram, Ms Thunberg wrote that Ms Yousafzai.

    > Ms Thunberg was nominated for the prestigious prize in 2019 and 2020.The pair met at the Oxford college Lady Margaret Hall, where Ms Yousafzai resides, and while it's not known exactly what they discussed, the principal of the college Alan Rusbridger said Ms Thunberg spoke to students about "Science, voting, the limits of protest, divestment, real zero v net zero, and much more.”

  4. That’s pretty cool. I’m surprised they didn’t meet before.

    If there were an elite squad of young women leading the way in various fields they are in it.

  5. What a pair! In a few short years, between them, they’ve done more than everyone I know, put together (and I’m 69).

  6. omg reading the headline made me tear up abit. That is so sweet

  7. Every time I see Greta I can’t get over just how young she looks. And then I remember, holy crap, she IS so young!

    She’s a remarkable individual

  8. Wouldn’t surprise me if Trump and/or AG Barr orders the FBI to put these *girls* onto their ‘Top 10 Most Wanted’ list.

  9. one got a bullet for going to school, the other got famous for not going to school … the only one missing is Ahmed Clockboy for the party to be complete.

  10. Aww

    It’s good actually having some good news for a change

  11. ​

    >“She’s the only friend I’d skip school for.”

    Serious ~~bromance~~ womance going on between these two.

  12. What is so significant about this?

  13. Greta reminds me of Stephen Merchant!

  14. Why is this in any way newsworthy?

    I mean, I can see why there was a press release. Just not why there would be any press.

  15. Oi Lemme preface this with the fact that Greta is an absolute legend

    But yo she roams the world so much doesnt she have school to go to or something

    I don’t think my parents would’ve ever allowed me to become a world changing activist at that age smh

  16. One is famous for getting shot for going to school. The other is famous for playing hooky with a ’cause’. All my Swedish friends are truly embarrassed by this little attention whore. She’ll probably go into acting like her father and grandfather.

  17. Who cares? Why aren’t we talking about Boyan Slat?

  18. Greta is looking more and more like [Stephen Merchant](https://i.imgur.com/NvpnnOC.jpg) with each passing day.

  19. Is the woman who’s speech she copied from the 80s still alive? She should meet her if she is.

  20. one of them is a real activist

  21. Why is role model in quotation marks?

  22. I see a “Perfect Strangers” reboot in everyone’s near future.

  23. When Thunberg starts walking everywhere then I will start to listen.

  24. One of these people is actually a role model. The other is just a loud puppet.
