Day 23: Women are People

Women are people, yet we often forget to treat each other humanely.  Worse, we degrade each other deliberately.  Worst, we use our commonly assumed (but certainly not universally experienced) gifts of emotional intuition to do so effectively, if not efficiently (because, baby, sometimes it’s better to savor the anguish of others).  Women are people, yet we refer to one another as animals–catty, bitchy, fat cows.  Women are people, yet we place value on each other based on parts of our wholes–the clothes/accessories we sport, the addition/subtraction of fat, the activity level of this or that girl’s vagina.  Long live feminism?
