Gravity Holds Women Down

“Gravity Holds Women Down”, found via What Men Are Saying About Women. Excerpt:

“Gravity is designed to benefit men, who have thicker bones and greater upper-body strength. Today, we see the results everywhere of the patriarchy’s efforts to keep women down. Gravity causes women to fall to their deaths out of windows or down stairs. It makes buildings collapse, killing women and children. It damages women’s cars when some inconsiderate construction worker topples from the tenth floor and bounces off the hood.”

I have found some similar writings at The League of Anti; they might be old but they’re still funny :) Like “POW Says Girls Shortchanged on Height”, excerpt:

“”Society sends girls the message that they are not expected to grow tall,” said Ms. Hyphenated-Lastname. “Girls are told to ‘be a good little girl,’ and to be ‘mama’s little helper,’ while boys are encouraged to ‘stand tall’ and be a ‘big man.’ The reason that girls do not achieve equal tallness is that they aren’t encouraged to.”
