I want a boyfriend
but I also want feminism

Does that make me so awful?
Does it make me any less of the woman that I am?
Does it make me wrong?

No.

Because the way you define feminist, and I define feminist are completely different things

You say women should
I say women can
You say women should speak their mind softly
I say we can cause a goddamned riot
You say women should
I say women can

So, no.
it does not make me awful
It does not make me less of the woman that I am
it most definitely does not make me wrong

Because I am a woman
and I can do it all
With of course,
my boyfriend of a sidekick
to help fight the battles
of misogyny and hate

Because in the end,
the women are the ones who run this town
while the men are left to ponder
what it truly means to be
a feminist

I love the lines "You say women should speak their mind softly/I say we can cause a goddamned riot"
