Yes, I Have A Penis

Do not assume (if I hold the door for you),
that I am making a statement
about your inabilities
to open the door for yourself.
If you hold it for me,
I'll say 'thankyou'.

Do not assume (if I pay for the meal),
that I am underestimating
your earning capacity
as a woman.
If you invite me out for a meal,
you're paying.

Do not assume (if I defend your rights),
that I am belittling
the attempts that you have made
to defend your rights yourself.
If you defend my rights,
I'll consider you human.
Inspired by my female tutor, who told me that, as a male, I had no place arguing in favour of women's rights.

As a woman and feminist, I actually like that there are men who still do this. Is being a gentleman so bad? There are so few guys these days who do things like this and I guess it's the fault of those so-called 'feminists' that gives us a bad name. Like for example, those who commented below who are bitching about this being 'sexist'. I agree with :iconartificialidentity: and I applaud you for this very truthful piece :clap: Congrats on the DD as well :)

You should have told her that as a woman ... she had no place in anything .... Then you should have slammed the door in her face!!

sexism hurts males just as much as females, in my opinion.
also, saying that males should not be allowed to defend the right of women is shooting yourself in the foot.

Love the poetry.

I just checked that are stupid people in the world that think that only white people discriminate or that only males play roles of sexism agains woman.

Maybe is a USA-centered vision of the world?  I just give up all those pseudofeminists that posted before. Such stupid people...

The biggest problem I see with people that define themselves as a group is that they view society divided into teams. That group mentality leads to an inhumane way of, instead of looking at a human being as an individual, trying to tell someone what they can/can't do or say because you belong to group x. No I am not. I am nothing but Brent Cherry and my opinions are my own.

Their called extremists, not feminists. If we actually believed what she told you, then we should have no place arguing in favor of the Jews during WW2 because we weren't Jews.
