I just don’t really agree with feminism,
I love men, so how could I
perpetuate an ideologue that demeans
I find catcalls flattering,
it is nice to know that
men find me attractive.
It’s just a joke,
when a man calls me a
Just some harmless fun,
you tell me,
isn’t he just so funny?
you advise me,
when he pinched my arse
That’s just the way he is.
Don’t be so sensitive.
You know how men are,
I wouldn’t worry about it.
But I did.
(I wanted to slap him in the face,
and tell him never fucking touch me
you son of a bitch.
You were there,
so I didn’t tell him that the real
reason why all his wives left him
was because he refused to treat
them like human beings).
You are a woman,
buys her own shit;
independent as fuck.
You are where you are
because generations of women fought
for their right to be seen
as more than a uterus
whose place was in the kitchen
making a sandwich for the husband
who was in front of the television
and drinking his beer.
You rarely bad mouth a man
because you mistake sexism and misogyny
for flattery and humour.
All you do, though, is regard women as nothing
more than objects to be judged.
“Oh my god, look at her, she’s the fattest lady I’ve seen.
How can she wear that skirt? Has she looked in the mirror?
How is he married to that?”
Your attitude is the result of generational
perceptions imbued within society
from patriarchal structures of sexism.
I’m talking in generalisations
but understand this,
I don’t intend to shove my beliefs in your face.
just don’t tell me that I should accept harassment
just because they’re men
And I am a woman.
– i have no time for your outdated notions of ‘gender equality’
