Nevertheless

October 8, 2018

Wear a dress and you’re hollered at on streets; 
But wear a turtleneck and you’re a prude.
Trust too quickly and you’re naïve;
But keep your guard up and you’re a shrew. 
Speak too loudly and you’re abrasive;
But speak too softly and you’re demure. 
Smile at a stranger and you’re asking for it;
But avoid eye contact and you’re hormonal.
Report too soon and you regret your judgment;
But wait too long and you’re a liar. 
Love too much and you’re a “whore;”
But love too little and you’re a “bitch.” 
Walk this tightrope every day, 
And don’t dare to question it or complain;
Because you’re “lucky” to be here,
To be “good at math, 
For a girl;”
Even though you’re “bad at geography, 
Like a girl.”
Nevertheless, she persisted.
