I’m a Feminist

I’m a Feminist because every time you say a woman is a second class citizen it hurts me.
Every time you say she is lesser than, it pains me.
Every time you say she deserved to be raped it touches me personally.
Every time you cut her genitals off, you might as well take a piece of me too.
Every time you swear at her.
Every time you slap her.
Every time you spit at her.
Every time you say she must cover her face; or her dress is too short; too long; too this; too that, not this enough, not that enough.
Every time you think she knows it all because her dreams are so big.
Every time you marry her off at age eleven.
Every time you use her to fight wars.
And when you refuse her a view and an education.
I’m a feminist because when deny her; you deny me too.
