I'm reading <i>I am an Emotional Creature</i> by Eve Ensler. Read it.
My friend T picked it up to see what I was reading and promptly put it back down. He saw the words Vagina Monologues. He said it was a "chick book". I wanted to punch him in the face.
I want to yell so loudly about our awesomeness, our power, our beauty. I want them to understand that we are women. Do not fear us.
It makes me angry when men belittle me, put me down, make fun of me when I tell them a feminist.
I don't want to speak to soon. I'm afraid I'm a fraud. I'm afraid to speak out for fear of not knowing what I am talking about. I don't want to look like a fool, but I want them to know they are wrong.
Why are they scared of us?
