I am angry. I am angry because I was studying and an intrusive conversation between two people came dancing into my Linear Algebra and overtook me. Now I’m angry. Angry at myself for listening, for feeling, for writing, for being a part of a conversation it was best not to have in the first place. Though I am most angry at my gender because inadvertently it comes to that.
If you haven’t guessed I am a girl brought up among people who have shown me that my problems have no voice here. I am a girl born into a society sickened by their obsession with the existence of a dick for which they are willing to kill the very home of their new born child by throwing a woman down the staircase. I am a girl brought up among the four walls of my house listening to screams that we are forced to call music. Blood curling voices bombarding our imaginations telling us to call them home because we’ll be kicked out of homes soon enough.
How could you Pakistan?
How could you the very women who have been reduced to dust because you’ve been given the miracle of birth- but not the birth allowed by society, how could you my women who have been shunned for not meeting a patriarchal standard of life, who have worked twice as hard to get half the reward, criticize your daughters for not trying hard enough. How could you women whose life has been a source of jeer and taunt treat your daughter in law with the same wrath that you were treated with. How could you the very women whose life has been a story for your elders to discuss on the phone sit on the phone and talk about someone else’s story? HOW CAN YOU TELL ME THAT A MAN ABUSING A WIFE IS KEPT WITHIN THE HOME- WHICH BY THE WAY IS A HOME FOR ONLY THOSE WITH THE HOLY POWER OF THE MALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM- BUT A WOMAN WHO LEFT HER ABUSIVE HUSBAND IS THE FRONT PAGE OF A GOSSIP MAGAZINE?
HOW CAN YOU, THE TORTURED ,THE ABUSED, THE RAPED, THE MOLESTED ,THE VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE BE THE VERY ABUSE YOU AVE FEARED YOUR ENTIRE LIFE? YOU’RE A JEW SUPPORTING THE HOLOCAUST. A MUSLIM ENDORSING ISLAMOPHOBIA. YOU’RE A BLACK REPUBLICAN. YOU’RE A BULLY. YOU’RE A JOKE THAT CAN’T EVEN BE FUNNY.
THE ONLY MISTAKES IN THIS WORLD ARE WOMEN LIKE YOU AND THE MEN THEY CREATE. YOU ARE PITIFUL.
