"Take up more space as a woman. Take up more time. Take your time. You are taught to hide, censor, move about without messing up decorum for a man’s comfort. Whether it’s said or not, you’re taught balance. Forget that. Displease. Disappoint. Destroy. Be loud, be righteous, be messy. Do not see yourself like glass. Like you could get dirty and clean. You are flesh. You are not constant. You change. Society teaches women to maintain balance and that robs us of our volatility. Our mercurial hearts. Calm and chaos. Love only when needed; preserve otherwise."
there is no such thing as “the opposite gender” because there are more than two genders. thats like saying “i like the opposite flavor of ice cream” there is no opposite when theres essentially an infinite number of possibilities
also implying that genders somehow inherently “oppose” each other in eternal conflict is a subtle way of justifying unequal distribution of power under patriarchy.
