Being a girl means taking up as little space as possible. You need to shrink to leave room for men and their mindset of entitlement.  Being a girl means understanding that you're only going to be worth 78 cents to every dollar a man makes for the same job.  Being a girl means trying to avoid walking alone at night, because someone could take control of you. But it's always your fault, they could've been drunk or your clothes might have been too revealing.  Being a girl means that being assertive makes you trash. Don't ever try to get anything done, don't act like the boss, don't say what you think because you're automatically put below others.  Being a girl in today's society is what no one actually wanted.
