Quote of the Week

Standard

“Girls can be athletic. Guys can have feelings. Girls can be smart. Guys can be creative. And vice versa. Gender is specific only to your reproductive organs (and sometimes not even to those), not your interest, likes, dislikes, goals, and ambitions.”Connor Franta

Because we’re Women

Standard

Words by Joyce Stevens© 1975

Because women’s work is never done and is underpaid or unpaid or boring or repetitious
and we’re the first to get the sack
and what we look like is more important than what we do
and if we get raped it’s our fault
and if we get bashed we must have provoked it
and if we raise our voices we’re nagging bitches
and if we enjoy sex we’re nymphos
and if we don’t we’re frigid
and if we love women it’s because we can’t get a ‘real’ man
and if we ask our doctor too many questions we’re neurotic and pushy
and if we expect community care for children we’re selfish
and if we stand up for our rights we’re aggressive and ‘unfeminine’
and if we don’t we’re typical weak females
and if we want to get married we’re out to trap a man
and if we don’t we’re unnatural
and because we still can’t get an adequate safe contraceptive but men can walk on the moon
and if we can’t cope or don’t want a pregnancy we’re made to feel guilty about abortion
and ….. for lots and lots of other reasons we are part of the women’s liberation movement.
