Because She Is a Woman

It is because she is a woman

we decide to focus upon emotions,

It is because she is a woman

we look beyond the idea of serious intent,

It is because she is a woman

we feel threatened by patriarchal fallacy.

 

Because she’s a woman,

we forget her efforts are to serve

Because she’s a woman

we’d rather deny her the privilege

Because she’s a woman

we can hide beyond the reality of our prejudice

Because she’s a woman

we’ll pass off her efforts as ballsy

 

She is a woman, and she is deserving

She is a woman, and her efforts are real

She is a woman, and men do indeed cower

She is a woman, and we must have faith

in her desire, in her ideals, in her intellect,

in her intelligence, in her prowess,

in her ability to recognize a semblance of goodness.

 

Because she is a woman.
