Why My Feminism

In a stereotypical patriarchal society, 

I would soon have wifely duties

and keep my mouth shut. 

How boring. 


"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

currently unattainable.
