What are the solutions to the issues you lay out here, “ Is it really that hard, being a First World woman? Is it really so tough to have the career and the spouse and the pets and the herb garden and the core strengthening and the oh-I-just-woke-up-like-this makeup and the face injections and the Uber driver who might possibly be a rapist? Is it so hard to work ten hours for your rightful 77% of a salary, walk home past a drunk who invites you to suck his cock, and turn on the TV to hear the men who run this country talk about protecting you from abortion regret by forcing you to grow children inside your body?”

Do we burn Cosmopolitan and Estee Lauder to the ground, right after firing all the women and gays there who tell women they need to look perfect and be everything?

Do we kill or castrate men who cat-call?

Do we force young girls into finance, medicine, and engineering so that they are in careers that earn more money than those society now leads them to? And then do we mandate companies hire and promote as many women as men?

Do we eliminate all restrictions on abortion and never mention it again?

And I ask these questions seriously. I’m not attempting to antagonize. Because, as a man, I get some sense of how difficult it must be to be a woman. I hear your intense frustration. I don’t get why anyone would argue it’s invalid. But what are the solutions? Are there any? Or did you just lay out the conditions of being a 1st world woman with the feeling that none of this is changing any time soon and that some of it may never change?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
