If you really want to talk about what’s holding the women’s movement back, it’s this notion that women can’t do anything wrong. That there’s no good or bad, there’s just choice.
The person I admire most, Socrates, was the biggest troll in history and responsible for creating the entire shell of western culture.
“How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.”
As far as we have come as women, we still don’t have the ambition that men have. We want to be helpers rather than doers.
As good feminists, we never judge the choices of other women.
We have baby showers and wedding parties as if it’s a huge accomplishment and cause for celebration to be able to get knocked up or find someone to walk down the aisle with. These aren’t accomplishments, they are actually super easy tasks, literally anyone can do them.
Being single is kind of an armor guarding against whatever cultural or biological intuitions are telling me, as a woman, to be self-sacrificial.
