i don’t understand why some people are so ??? upset?? about equal rights???? does it PERSONALLY OFFEND you if people are trying to ask for more right??? is a woman asking for equal pay, a choice in their life, representation in politics REALLY attack you?? if you say “i’m tired of seeing these no one cares” that’s like seeing a post saying “be happy with yourself” and going “FUCK OFF IM TIRED OF POSITIVITY AND GOOD MORALS” and i don’t understand why people have the need to say “it’s because women belong at home taking care of children” and “women choose to have less rights” because WHO ARE YOU TO TELL ME WHAT I WANT why can’t men stay at home with children? i know plenty of men would love that but there’s no one telling them to “stay in the kitchen” and why would i choose to be oppressed and why don’t you believe me when i say i want to be free to do what i want? YOU want to own mORE GUNS and dePort innocent people BUT I CANT HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE MY BABY’S FUTURE????
This isn't Harry Potter, but I felt like it needs to be said, and I don't have a tumblr to post it on. I'm really tired of the narrative that women are nurturers and women. Some are, and that's a good thing, but it goes back to the times when women could only stay at home or be nurses. I'm a woman and I don't want to be a stay at home mom. I don't want to be a professional "nurturer". I want to be strong. I want to be a scientist. And screw society if they say I can't.
