Thanks For The Feminism
Here’s to the Manly Men. To the pimply boys who dutifully protect women from opening their own door. To the overprotective hombres who mistake chauvinism for chivalry. To the dudebros who grace us with their unsolicited pictures. To the creepy, quiet incel leering in the corner. To the sweet old guy who just doesn’t believe girls, marvelous as they are, can do that.
Here’s to the unequal budgets, to the single-minded stories. To the voices that take up space with their proclamations. To the firey, fluid doctrine that has cooled to granite. To all the paternal advice of what we should be. To the Six B’s that never once mentioned bravery. To the people who only hire men. To the ones who taught us to always say ‘yes’ by always saying ‘no’. To the boys’ clubs, to misogyny, to Patriarchy in general —
Thanks for the Feminism. We never would have got here without you. 💋
