BECAUSE WE’RE WOMEN

Standard

BECAUSE WOMAN’S WORK IS NEVER DONE AND IS UNDERPAID OR UNPAID OR BORING OR REPETITIOUS

AND

WE’RE THE FIRST TO GET THE SACK 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 BASHED, WE MUST HAVE PROVOKED IT

AND

IF WE RAISED 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 COMMUNITY CARE FOR CHILDREN, 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 CONTRACEPTION 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 AND LOTS OF OTHER REASONS, WE ARE PART OF THE WOMEN’S LIBERATION MOVEMENTS
