Do you believe that cat calls and body compliments make my day? Think twice.
You figure roses are what I like as a gift? Think twice.
You reckon I feel great if you say I am better than your “crazy” ex girlfriends? Think twice.
Do you expect me to want you to buy me dinner? Think twice.
You imagine I feel empowered when you call me bossy? Think twice.
I need so much more. And if by any chance you don’t understand what I mean, even after thinking twice, you don’t really know women.
Body compliments are shallow, listening to my opinions is far more enriching.
Flowers die in a jar, books allow new ideas to blossom in my mind.
Dinner for two may be expensive, sharing domestic chores is free.
Praising a woman by comparing her to others is childish, while having a deep knowledge of her most obscure thoughts is the way to her heart.
Women wouldn’t need to be “bossy” if they had a fair chance to actually be the boss.
Happy International Women’s Day,
