In a stereotypical patriarchal society,
I would soon have wifely duties
and keep my mouth shut.
"Your poor boyfriend," they say
because I remind him, in the future,
if he one day becomes my husband,
I will not be the only one responsible
for the laundry, the dishes
or the kids.
Feminism, to me,
is just laws, paternity leave
and the assurance of safety
