Society defines women's successes by the spawn generated from our uteri. If one child strays away and follows the road not taken, their mother has failed.
Rewind. What happens when a woman cannot fulfill society's role? She becomes tainted goods. No, a female must have children, that is their main purpose. Culture offers options to fix the defect: surgery, hormones, egg harvesting, surrogate, implementation of eggs from another properly working lady. Children are the biggest accomplishment of your life.
FUCKING. PAUSE. I am my biggest accomplishment. Society casts the label misfit. I embody the title warrior. Men view me as dysfunctional where as I view them as unequipped to handle a fierce, independent woman not defined by reproduction.
I am not a deficiency.
