It is disheartening to be a woman. Tell it to Eve. Or actually any female who walks the earth. In some societies we are kept veiled and stoned for our sexual desires. Here we are lectured to by men who ought to know better. Have they no wives, sisters, mothers, lovers, lady friends??? To hear the arguments about birthcontrol, etc. by men who want to run the country is to indulge in sitting in on monologues in a language that is not even accessible at Berlitz. What is the problem with the communication skills of politicians?
We live in a world of supposedly growing equality. Women are now in high positions not just in the missionary position.
Equally we are the mothers of your children, guys. We have boys and girls under our tutelage. Trust us. Trust us about ourselves, what moves us and what limits us. I am not the other. I am here. Included. Listen to me. Then maybe I will return the favor by listening to you.
