misogyny is celebrated

misogyny is enamored by us

boys will be boys , they said

but she is a girl, why not………..

endless improvement suggestions

pushed down our throats

why can’t you keep your husband straight, you have failed

see so and so her husband doesn’t do this, why not………….

why is he beating her,  she is not clean

she does not know how to keep a man

why will he, if she had been coy, sweet talker, better cook

better yet always improving herself

Be more patient, are you praying ?

while no effort is made over there,

so i say, why not….he…………….

can she clap with one hand ?

better yet, is he still a child ?

endless rhetorical questions
