Yes, I am a woman.

yes, I am a woman.

that doesn’t mean you can say what you want to me.

it doesn’t mean you can do what you want to me.

it doesn’t mean you know who I am, what I want, what moves me.

it doesn’t mean you get to assume anything about me.

yes, I am a woman.

that doesn’t mean that flowers or jewelry will fix anything.

it doesn’t mean that my emotions mean less than yours.

it doesn’t mean you can belittle what I’m saying by asking if it’s my “time of the month.”

it doesn’t make me “crazy” when I get upset or angry.

yes, I am a woman.

that doesn’t mean you get to tell me my dress would look nice on your floor.

it doesn’t mean you can cut and wound and bruise.

it doesn’t mean you can slam a door in my face because you don’t want to listen.

it doesn’t mean you can ignore me.

yes, I am a woman.

that doesn’t mean I accept the status quo.

it doesn’t mean I’m a bitch or a cunt or a whore.

it doesn’t mean I don’t have wants and needs of my own.

it doesn’t mean I won’t fight for what I want.

yes, I am a woman.

and I can take you down.
