I had no idea that International Women’s Day even existed, but now I’m on Facebook I know a lot of things.
I’m not feeling it though. Ok, before you get your thong in a wad, I know there are women around the world that are mistreated and worse. But I just don’t buy in to the sentiment that men and women are equal, and can do all things equally well.
News flash. Men are stronger than women. (Ok, not all men and not all women, but basically it is true.)
Women have our strengths of course, as do men, and I think those strengths should be celebrated, not vilified if based on gender.
For one thing, my man has been gone almost three weeks, and I am definitely no equal.
I can’t lift these things to shove in the wood burner, I can’t start or use the chain saw, and definitely can’t start the excavator to go get more wood.
These are mountains of sh*t, which I have to pile up with the fork. When he gets back he will start the bobcat and scrape away the piles. I can’t do that.
The cows are almost out of hay. The sheep are out of hay, and I cannot move the big round bales, so I have to feed them with dragging square bales out of the trailer.
The man will be home this evening, thank God, as I have lost all control, even the dogs are in the house.
I’m content making him a loaf of sourdough, and leave the piles to him.
Voting for someone JUST because they are a woman? sheesh!
