©Misogyny’s Not Dead; I think Feminism Is Fading; And Still, Life Goes On

His thinking is no different than so many men,
Believing if I express my own opinion
It can only be wrong, that his is correct
Because he’s convinced his opinion is fact,
And, dear me, mine is delusion.
He dares to think he is in charge...
Of moi, as well as the facts.

Silly man! Does he not realize
It has been universally acknowledged that
If a person mistakes his opinion for fact
He might be under the delusion he is G-d?
An opinion is that; an opinion and
If it is an opinion, can it be wrong?

Poor dear man; I parried his blow
Letting him know he must have been
Insufficiently exposed to the fact
There are people who’ve had
Other experiences and, more
Importantly, there are more men
who love women than who dislike us.
