Please stop reinforcing the idea that women are victims of a patriarchal society when talking about women in a first world country.
Please stop reinforcing the idea that women are demanding and never satisfied with what they’ve got.
Please stop making it seem like we have no mind of our own and can only blindly follow what ‘society’ has brainwashed us to follow.
Please STOP speaking for all women and shutting down the ones that speak against you.
I love being a woman. I honestly love my sisters and sympathize with them so much so that I often would rather not speak than speak against them. I hate knowing that there are women who would try and shut other women up because they refuse to be a victim.
I am not some helpless creature who has been made to believe I want things because they benefit a man, and for you to say this is the way things are when I know from my own life and the other women in my life that it is not, for you to push this idea that I need to fight against things that are in no way harmful to me and my sisters, for you to say that I need to be quiet because I’m just brainwashed and a mindless drone of the patriarchy, for you to do these things is for you to try and take away my autonomy and make me a mindless drone of your matriarchy.
