Being a woman is not a gift.
Being a woman sucks.
Being a woman is pain – great pain.
We bleed with cramps and aches
And if we don’t bleed for whatever reason, we’re considered garbage
Even Objectified disguised as “celebrated.”
We’re labeled and categorized
We are told
How to act
How to look
How to speak
How to sex
How to work
How to play
The labels of our personal body parts are used as insults to others
We are dictated as to how and when we should carry our children
We are dictated as to IF we should carry our children
And dictated as to how we should raise our children, upon penalty of law
We are programmed and shepherded
If you stand up, you’re knocked down
If you’re knocked down, you’re considered weak
And if you’re weak, well, you are “Just a Woman.”
We are reduced to asking someone else if this fucking dress makes us look fat!
NO. Being a woman, itself, is not a gift.
is that we can go through all of this every day, every single day…
and we are still not broken.
