Think twice (International Women’s Day)

Do you believe that cat calls and body compliments make my day? Think twice.

You figure roses are what I like as a gift? Think twice.

You reckon I feel great if you say I am better than your “crazy” ex girlfriends? Think twice.

Do you expect me to want you to buy me dinner? Think twice.

You imagine I feel empowered when you call me bossy? Think twice.

I need so much more. And if by any chance you don’t understand what I mean, even after thinking twice, you don’t really know women.

Body compliments are shallow, listening to my opinions is far more enriching.

Flowers die in a jar, books allow new ideas to blossom in my mind.

Dinner for two may be expensive, sharing domestic chores is free.

Praising a woman by comparing her to others is childish, while having a deep knowledge of her most obscure thoughts is the way to her heart.

Women wouldn’t need to be “bossy” if they had a fair chance to actually be the boss.

Happy International Women’s Day,

Cae
