I’m fuming

Me: “Don clubbed before why are you treating me any different from him.”
Mom: “It’s because you are a girl.

When people make being born a girl as a wrong choice. When people use your gender to disallow you to do certain things. We’re weak, they say. I could ramble on and on about what we cannot do but there are loads of posts like this on tumblr and facebook so I shan’t bother.

So frustrating.

“It’s okay, I’ll protect you so you won’t have to face this kind of thing.”
