Hey guys, today I just wanted to talk about something very random and for no particular reason because why not. I was just on a walk one day and I was kinda just thinking about how fucking mental life is as a woman. I’m pretty sure I was actually getting a bit scared because I thought this man was about to literally kidnap me but, surprise surprise, he didn’t. I guess that is a bit fitting for the story because that is something we gotta put up with at points. Anyways, let’s get into some facts about women that are kinda obvious but like I feel we just need to do a wee recap sesh for all the people out there who are very much… ignorant. I will also be exposing us a wee bit but deal with it.
1. Evolved To Forget
This was one that I only realised not that long ago and basically our bodies have evolved to forget the pain of giving birth because it is so traumatic to us. Excuse me? What the actual fuck. Obviously, we have some stuff to help with that pain now but what about the people that give birth in their literal car and don’t have time to get to the hospital or some shit? What about the women who literally don’t have access to healthcare and just have to hope for the best?! I actually read that every 90 seconds a woman dies from giving birth or pregnancy complications. Like what the hell? I mean yeah having kids would be great and stuff but oh my days I didn’t realise it would be that bad. I just know that when I am like 7 or 8 months pregnant that I will be having nightmares of going into labour. I suppose there is always a c-section but that’s only for emergencies so you gonna have to get that baby out at some point and I’m not for it.
2. Growing a Fucking Human
I think we can all grasp the concept of what it means to be pregnant. Like we grow a baby and then boom it’s suddenly out of you as this slimy crying thing. But I don’t think you really UNDERSTAND it. We grow a complex living thing inside of us that just lies there for 9 months rent-free. When you look at a pregnant woman there is quite literally a human inside her. It just boggles my mind to think about that because the pregnancy belly just makes you think “aww pregnant” and then they give birth and you’re like “aww a baby” but that thing was quite literally just inside her. That full human being was just inside her. It was on that kangaroo shit just sitting there. It didn’t just magically transform shape as it was birthed but that baby was just squished up in there from a literal egg to a full ass baby. It’s just crazy and kinda scary to think of
3. The Reason We Wear Makeup
This one may actually be really shocking for some people and it’s the first time I’m gonna expose us or just people who wear makeup. But the real reason we do our makeup and spend all our goddamn money is because… we just fucking want to! Oh my days! What a shock. It isn’t actually for other people. That’s crazy mental. Bet some of you were convinced we do all that shit for you! No. We just like it and it makes us feel good and that’s it
4. We Have Our Own Opinions
I really hope some of the people my age and in my school get to read this because I don’t think they have ever been taught that before. So we actually do have thoughts and can come up with ideas and opinions by ourselves. We can actually retain information, yes even the blonde ones, so like don’t tell us what to think or say because I can promise you they know what they want to say, they just aren’t being listened to or been given the chance to do so. I’ve actually faced that problem lately in school where we have to build a business and every time I bring something up or give new ideas or opinions, they are always not convinced by what I say or just go like “yeah…” and then don’t talk about it again. Or they’ll be like “but don’t you think…” or “wouldn’t you agree that…”. Hmmm, maybe let me talk for myself for one second. Thank you
5. What We Do At Sleepovers
I actually find it so funny what people think girls do at sleepovers. Like it actually shocks me how they think it’s all pillow fights and giggling about what guy we like. Don’t get me wrong we do love a good gossip but like that isn’t it. We have the deepest conversations late at night. We eat, we watch random movies, we cry, we do whatever the hell we want. One thing that I have never done at a sleepover though is a pillow fight. In fact, the only reason anyone would be hit by a pillow is if they were doing my head in and you just gotta make them shut up somehow. That makes me sound like a bitch but we all just find it funny.
6. Why We Go To The Bathroom Together
I’ve actually heard a lot of answers from different people and some say that they go together to gossip about who they are with or to fix their makeup and while that is true for many and I have done that in the bathrooms, but honestly, the reason I gather a big group is that I just don’t want to be bored and it is also just so awkward having to walk around to find the bathroom. Like I suppose some of the things I said above do happen but I wouldn’t go just for that. It’s just to make the experience more fun, less lonely and a lot less awkward. So yeah that’s your answer I guess.
7. We Don’t Complain as Much as We Could
I already KNOW that there are gonna be people racing to the comments and saying “how is that possible lol I swear my girl always be mad at me!” or “we know that ’cause you always be saying your fine and shit when you really aren’t” but I swear to god if anyone says that I’m gonna flip. We can be straight up with people if we know them and trust them, and you can take that as a compliment, but there are things in everyday life that we just keep quiet because it would take up way too much energy. One thing I think that needs to be mentioned is the dumb things that guys say all the time that just isn’t true. For example, and this one might be triggering, “must be her time of the month” :I What the fuck? Like sorry, we are just pissed and actually show emotion I guess. We also don’t literally collapse whenever we get hurt even the tiniest bit. We also just get on with work that needs to be done even if we had a long day because you just gotta deal with it. We do realise that there are inequalities at home and around the world but we don’t say that every bloody day because it would take up a lot of the time that we don’t really have. So next time you say we complain too much, just know it’s probably just because our “glass of tolerance” is overflowing at the moment.
8. Wonder Woman
This one is genuinely a good fact. It’s sad but also interesting. The movie Wonder Woman (2017) was the first superhero movie with a female lead that was directed by a woman. Can someone tell me why it took so long for that to happen?
9. We Used To Wear What?!
I just learned about this today and it makes me feel sick to my stomach just thinking about it. So, before pads and all that shit was invented, women used to have to use softened papyrus, lint wrapped around wood, and paper during our period. Pads are even uncomfortable at the moment, never mind having to wear a fucking log like they did. Who thought that was a good idea? I would just bleed through and deal with it because that sounds like literal torture
10. Women’s Brains Are Just Built Different
Let me list off some facts real quick. Men’s brains are 9% larger than women’s, yet we still have the same number of brain cells. We mature so much quicker than men, 2 years quicker to be exact. And that is why I won’t date anyone younger than me because even the one’s my age are still complete idiots, and I knew that before I learned this fact. Oh, and one last fact to leave you with. The top 2 highest IQ’s ever recorded were by 2 women *Mic drop*
Lol, I hope that post really wasn’t too feminist of me because II don’t want to feel like I’m properly destroying the men, but I think it’s good to appreciate so of the things women have to go through and deal with every day. But I’m sure some of you found this somewhat informative and enjoyed discovering what our lives are like and don’t forget to like, comment and follow for more. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
Now please don’t think I’m some sort of alien conspiracy bitch, like I understand that plants are a living thing because I went to school (not in the USA) and did biology (again, not in the USA) so I would say I know a thing or two. I also think about things too much which… Continue Reading →
POV: it’s Saturday. You are with a friend on the train and because we are so spontaneous we say “hey, why don’t we go to Botanic instead?”. You feel crazy because you are now getting off one stop later, what a rush. You go around and live the quirky life you desired as you shop… Continue Reading →
This post is gonna come off as fucking cheeky and kind of playing with American stereotypes, but I want to make it clear to you now that I 100% mean it. So, sorry I guess but it has to be done. To be fair though, when was there ever a need for you to learn… Continue Reading →
