female misogyny: stop hating yourself

It’s not only males who are against women. Women are too. We are not demons. We are the same. If you’ve seen Taxi Driver maybe you know that the young prostitute fools herself into hating what she is capable of. Linguistics is not the perpetrator of sexism. Who gives a genital if “he” or masculine words are dominant? It doesn’t bother me that Nietzsche said “Women are less than shallow.” It bothers me when women think they are less than shallow. Nobody’s opinion matters except your own. In fact if you were to rigidly abide by Nietzsche’s words, you’d be committing what he termed slave morality. Contradictions are a daily part of life and people can’t seem to stop stepping on it.
