I Am A Woman!!! – The Victimization Of Women

So what?
I get into an argument with a man,  he slaps me, I feel the pain, yet
they tell me I provoked him. I should have been quiet,  I should have
been patient.  I should apologize to him.
I get into an argument with a man,  I slap him,  they tell
me I have no respect, no home training. I should have been quiet,  I
should have been patient. I should apologize to him.
Because I am a woman,  I don’t have a right to be angry.
So, the degree of my innocence is directly proportional to the degree of
my  silence in the face of oppression and brutality.
Because I am a woman, my husband cheats on me, I am told to
tolerate it to save my marriage. The barbaric and stupid excuse is that
”it is in their nature to cheat,  I should slim down,  dress better,
cook better,  pray harder and be more pleasant to him”
I cheat, and I am called a whore, I have committed an
abomination, I have no right to look elsewhere for the love and
emotional support I lack at home,  I am an irresponsible mother.
So I am sent packing, from the home we both built,  with
all my earthly possessions stuffed into a tiny box on my head.  I am
henceforth forbidden from seeing my two older children,  I’m lucky to be
allowed to go with my little one still suckling on my left breast.
Three years later, the little one is tagged a bastard. Now, my new name
is “after-three”,  because I am a woman. 
He is 28 and runs a company. He’s tagged  wonderful, hardworking,  focused,  career oriented,  successful at a very young age. 
I am 28 and I run a company ” Hmmmm, she is not even
married, unserious, can not order her priorities right, a hustler, 
loves money,  let her go and get a husband oh”
And I wonder if being successful has anything to do with a person’s gender.
Because I am a woman,
I am not allowed to have wits or be a prodigy, I cannot be financially
buoyant,  professionally successful or be treated with respect without a
man beside me.
Then I am tagged a generous leg opener, “a runs girl”. They
never see the possibility that I actually had to go through ups and
downs to get to where I am.
Because I am a woman.
A man looses his wife to death and remarries a year after,
he did the right thing, he’s being praised and congratulated for moving
on, afterall life is for the living.
A woman looses her husband to death and remarries after
4yrs, “ahhh! so early? Are u sure she wasn’t sleeping with that man even
when her husband was alive? That was why she killed her husband.  She’s
a witch! ”  Because she’s a woman.

Because I am a woman, this post will be considered controversial, and everyone will try to correct me.
But don’t forget, that I am a woman and it does not make me less human!!!
