I just realized this very minute that women are brave. On a whole, we are physically less strong than the half of humans with penises and most mammals our size. From the time we are children a large number of us have been abused physically and/or sexually. We are bombarded daily by phrases that continue to make us feel less than. “Like a girl” or “Don’t be a pussy!” Not only that, but we bleed for a GD week and we don’t die. Yet we are made to feel bad about it making us cranky. 

Men may never know the fear we face everyday for just being female. But you know what, with everything society throws at us, and we throw at each other, we carry the fuck on.  We know the danger we face every time we leave the house and we do it anyway. Put on your war paint, or makeup, whatever. And head out the door. We got this.
