Immediately after I posted about Rites of Passage, I began to chastize myself.
I felt bad that I was focusing, yet again, on negative aspects. What if the need to create community involved memorials of passage got lost in my sad examples?
Am I just another whiny bitch? Complaining about being biologically female?
I hope not. I do tend to be more negative here than I am in real life. And I feel bad for it. I wish I didn’t have to go through being angry. If I could just be nice again. ?
But then I look at people I admire. When they are mad, they are mad. They don’t attack people, but they do attack ideas and attitudes. They don’t apologize or censor too much for having the full range of emotions and critical thought.
Ah well, in order to compensate for pointing out some of the unpleasant aspects of biological femaleness, I now propose a list:
Why Being Female/Feminine can be Fun
– multiple orgasms
– can wear spandex pants without risk of becoming less fertile
– can admit to liking cats
– can sing in musicals and dance with people of my own gender
– can borrow my husband’s clothes
– worth as a person is not dependent on expensive vehicles or guns
Please add to the list!
