International Women’s Day.
I added it to the office calendar with a sharpie; it’s not written in like St. Patrick’s Day and Veteran’s Day and a bunch of days named after slave owners, rapists, and soldiers of Manifest Destiny.
Im not little girl I’m a Veterans daughter T-shirt.
I went to work today because I’m a federal employee and signed away my life, and because at my job that wouldn’t do shit. Enough men in fire don’t want women there that just showing up is a demonstration. However hard I work, however smart I am on the fire line some men will still attribute any mistakes I make to my gender. My physiological differences make me too inferior to work alongside them. If I’m too tough I’m a BITCH or a CUNT, if I’m sensitive then I’m TOO EMOTIONAL. There will be gossip and rumors about my personal life: am I a DYKE? Am I a SLUT?
No matter what I’m CRAZY.
Little girls who love everyone and adore Jesus. Little girls who could someday make a huge difference in this world. I’m talking one of the main organs responsible for living. If I don’t have $59,175.90 up front I will NOT be able to save my girls. My husband works so hard, and I work as much as I possibly can with chronically ill children. My husband is a Navy Veteran who bravely served our country.
