Proud to be a Women

It's cool to be a daddy's girl. It's sad to be a mommy's boy. We can cry and get off speeding fines. The thrill of surprising people by being good at darts......and pool.....and football. Taxis stop for us. We get drunk quicker and cheaper. We've never fancied a cartoon character or the central figure in a computer game. It does not enhance our social standing to understand the inner workings of a 'ruck' (or any other rugby thing). But we look INCREDIBLY cool if we do. We get to flirt with systems support men who always return our calls, and are nice to us when we blow up our computers. Our boyfriend's clothes make us look elfin and gorgeous - you know what they look like in ours. We can wear platforms - which is why there is no such thing as a 'short woman's complex' We absently hum tunes from musicals without anyone being suspect of our sexuality. We can be groupies. Male groupies are stalkers. And finally... We don't look like a frog in a blender when dancing. But seriously I have been reading so many discussions about how women are beiong constantly abused, illtreated, raped, battered and killed by everyone around us. It surpasses all reliogious, socio-economic and country boundaries. I think something should be done to change this. In my opinon nothing but the women themselves can change their fate. what do you think. I would appreciate any serious or light mood commnets from one and all.
