It’s not because you’re a woman

It’s because you might change your mind, you see – you’re irrational.

It’s because it’s not natural – you should be nurturing.

It’s because you don’t really want to – you’re too emotional.

It’s because you haven’t thought about it enough – you don’t understand your own thoughts.

It’s because you took too long thinking about it – you’re too indecisive.

It’s because you brought this on yourself – you should have been better behaved.

It’s because you might be being pressured by others – you need to be protected.

It’s because you might make a decision on a whim – you’re not really rational.

But it is definitely, definitely not because you’re a woman.
