Women Are Beasts (In A Good Way)

how can we be the weaker sex
when we perch ourselves in five inch heels
and wear dresses
that
apparently tell men to whistle
and as our blood runs cold
we are told it was a compliment

how
can we be the weaker sex when
the boys laugh as they pull our hair
and call us ugly
they say boys will be boys and convince
us we are something we are not

how can we be the weaker sex
how
when we are told to look skinny
and tall and wait not too skinny
dont say no to boys but wait
you are a slut
prude
bitch virgin whore
what are you
WHAT ARE YOU because you have decided to
live outside the festering judgments

how
can we be the weaker sex when
we are told to protect ourselves
dont drinkt too much dont walk alone
but be your own protector
oh,
and that man who raped you?
there is a 97% chance he will walk free
do you like those odds?

and how can we be the weaker sex
when we are clawing away at the rights
to our own damn bodies
while great women do great things
and are still looked down upon
as weak

how can we be the weaker sex
when we carry children and go through hell
and back to bring this miracle into place
and
if not carrying a small kicking painful miracle
we are bleeding
and in pain and this THIS
is normal so dont complain

how can we
even be considered weak
when we pull ourselves from heartbreak
and pain
and disaster and how is it you look
at me and still think im weak
