I Am Over Male Patriarchal Bullshit
I do not even know where to begin. Could it be that women’s abortion rights are being taken away? Considering the majority of men do even understand that the abortion procedure is not always about having an abortion. How many women have had a DNC, aka a “dilation and curettage procedure, also called a D&C, a surgical procedure in which the cervix (the lower, narrow part of the uterus) is dilated (expanded) so that the uterine lining (endometrium) can be scraped with a curette (spoon-shaped instrument) to remove abnormal tissues.” I have had a few DNC, and it was not for an abortion, but now not so easy to get.
I read this stat on Morning Brew: Women leaders are quitting their companies at the highest rate on record, per a new report from LeanIn.org and McKinsey. 10.5% of women leaders quit their jobs last year, compared to 9% of men (a much wider spread than typical). Calling the trend the “Great Breakup,” the report found that women feel extra motivated to ditch their companies after getting passed up for promotions or being mistreated in the workplace. Not shocking; women are finally saying fuck this shit.
I am Jewish. I went to sit shiva, and the rabbi wouldn’t (couldn’t) shake my hand. It made me think long and hard about that, including the women who become rabbis. Perhaps that is why the Jewish religion has several levels of faith.
I have recently been to a few events where I asked several men about what they were doing, how life was, and all that good stuff. Not one of them asked me a question about myself. Perhaps they just assumed I was doing nothing but eating bonbons all day. Unclear.
Maybe it is the times, but the flipping of Roe v Wade, ignoring men who have behaved badly and still become Supreme Court judges, should make every woman stand up and say, “fuck the patriarchy.”
I am so over it. I love my male friends but honestly, if women ruled the world, it would be a much better place.
