Relevant Poem March 5, 2007

Posted by lindamc in Uncategorized.
happywomancelebrationjoepbuijsm.jpgBecause women's work is never done and is
underpaid or unpaid or boring or repetitious and
we're the first to get fired and
what we look like is more important than
what we do and
if we get raped it's our fault and
if we get beaten we must have provoked it and
if we raise our voices we're nagging bitches and
if we enjoy sex we're nymphos and
if we don't we're frigid and
if we love women it's because we can't get a "real" man and
if we ask our doctor too many questions we're neurotic and/or pushy and
if we expect childcare we're selfish and
if we stand up for our rights we're aggressive and "unfeminine" and
if we don't we're typical weak females and
if we want to get married we're out to trap a man and
if we don't we're unnatural and because we still can't get an adequate safe
contraceptive but men can walk on the moon and if we can't cope or don't
want a pregnancy we're made to feel guilty about abortion and...for lots of
other reasons we are part of the women's liberation movement.  

~Author unknown, quoted in The Torch, 14 September 1987
