Patriarchy has taught me that I need permission to exist.
Patriarchy taught me I’m not enough, all by myself, standing alone in front of my maker.
Patriarchy taught me I needed a man to be a whole person.
Patriarchy taught me I can’t get into the highest level of heaven without one.
Patriarchy made me feel ugly.
Patriarchy made me feel guilty for first having needs, and then meeting them.
Patriarchy bosses me around, tells me what to do, what not to do, what questions to ask, how to ask them, and what the answers are.
Patriarchy tells me how to feel, and tears me down when I don’t meet it’s definition of whatever it’s telling me to be.
Patriarchy has done nothing good for me.
F*ck you, Patriarchy!
