So technically this is day NINE! Oh well I missed a few days, but in my defense I was not feeling well, and rather than lament my illness I chose to not subject you to my ramblings.
Over the past few days I have had a few things happening that has re-established my faith in girl power! I just wanted to remind girls, women, old maids, etc. that as women we have a code of honor that sometimes gets forgotten when our feelings get hurt.
We grow up getting angry with our friends over barbies, boys, and bologna. We pack up our toys and go home and pout in our rooms saying how we are not ever talking to her again. We get older and fight about boys and even friends. We drive home and talk behind each others backs and say things that if we were not in the middle of an angry tantrum we might not say. We get married and have kids and fight over whether we should stay with a boy (or man) and how we raise our kids, and again with the back stabbing mean words.
As women we carry the weight of the world, we nurture our men to be successful and be our knights in shining armor. We teach our children to grow up to be strong individuals capable of supporting themselves. We fight the primal nature of gender roles in order to prove we are capable of doing whatever HE can do. We care for our friends in times of grief, strife, and confusion. Did I mention what we do for ourselves? Generally we forget that part.
Now before the feminazis get all twisty about gender roles, think of this. Watch a man, watch how they run around looking like gorillas fighting over some girls in heat. Watch how the husband of a pregnant woman walks with his chest a little further forward as he is so proud his off his accomplishment. While we would love to think ourselves evolved, we are still just primal beings stuck in the primordial ooze!
Women are women, we have skills and talents that cause us to behave in different ways then men. We need to embrace those. It does not make us less feminine it makes us more powerful as women. We need to stop being ugly to each other! As a whole we can control the world and it would smell a lot better than what these smelly boys are leaving in our paths. However we can never accomplish this if we continue to undermine each others abilities, skills, and talents. We each bring things to the table that will make others better. However you have to understand that if we don't accept we are fallible and imperfect we can not accept where other women's skills fill in the gaps in our own.
Men will never accept this, their egos are too big and generally too proud to ever be wrong. We have to take the "bull by the horns" and get this done!
I say all of this in a very generic way because as women we each have our mountains to climb. Children, spouses, politics, religious, whatever and whatever that mountain is will be our "bull".
Let's get 'em girls!
