A Few I've Forgotten

[warning: contains generalizations]

A perspective I hadn't considered

I seem to have forgotten the many girls who were all too relieved to close their books and walk out with their diplomas, assured that daddy would be replaced by hubby and all would be well with the world.

Without much time for them then, now I have a certain compassion for them; they are married with children, the status they always craved and seem not to understand what they are meant to do with it. They seemed lost in the minutea of their own lives, chattering to keep away the silence.

The real reason I am not a feminist is these women do not need a new dimension to their live, they were never intellectual to begin with, they need something to give meaning to all the very real kindness and love they give do everyday.
