Ladies and Gentlemen
Here's a poem by Nancy R. Smith
For Every Woman...
For every woman who is tired of acting weak when she knows she is strong;
There is a man who is tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable.
For every woman who is tired of acting dumb;
There is a man who is burdened with the responsibility of 'knowing everything'.
For every women who is tired of being called an 'emotional female';
There is a man who is denied the right to weep and be gentle.
For every woman who is called unfeminine when she competes;
There is a man for whom competition is the only way to prove he is masculine.
For every woman who is tired of being a sex object;
There is a man who must worry about his potency.
For every woman who feels 'tied down' by her children;
There is a man who is denied the full pleasure of parenthood.
For every woman who is denied meaningful employment and equal pay;
There is a man who must bear the financial responsibility for another human being.
For every woman who was not taught the intricacies of an automobile;
There is a man who was not taught the satisfaction of cooking.
For every woman who takes a step towards her own liberation;
There is a man who finds that the way to freedom has been made a little easier.
Don't see me as an anti-feminist here..it's just that sometimes, we forget that not only females face problems and are accused of weaknesses. Each of us have them. Let's just be reminded that no matter what the sex is, we could find ways of dealing with whatever would come our way.
