Even though normally this goes against everything I normally stand for, today, just for today I'd like to say a big old 'effyoo' to the feminist movement and all it stands for.
Why? Because today I had to move a dryer, by myself. BY MY FUCKING SELF. An apartment sized one, yes... but still... it was HEAVY.
And just because we CAN do all things that men can do, doesn't mean we always should, or even WANT to.
I sure didn't WANT to move a dryer all by myself. 20 years ago, I could have reveled in the idea that if I wanted to move a dryer by myself I could, but that in reality, there'd be a strapping male around to move it for me.
50 years ago, the idea of a woman moving a dryer by herself, while plausible (if she were freakishly large, or born with an excess of testosterone) would have been laughable.
100 years ago it would have been questionable if that was even a possibility. Which it wasn't, as the dryer had yet to be invented.
So yeah, bite me, Feminism.
I'm sorry. I didn't mean it. I love you.
