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.

This is wonderful :D A lot of women act like a guy doing these things means he's looking down upon us. Dave Chapelle was so right: "Chivalry IS dead. And women killed it." Not ALL women, but a lot of us.

Too many feminists out there. We're all equal. As long as we all get ice cream, everyone is okay. :)

the idea of feminism has been corrupted mostly by the tumblr "social justice warriors" and the irrational feminists, but don't profile all of the feminists as one thing. Oh and dont assume all men are rapists or that they are all women-haters. (just my two cents)

So true. Just because a guy does something like that doesn't mean it's because he thinks we aren't equal, it is just the gentlemanly thing to do.

There are women that ask 'what happened to chivalry?' The answer is simple and it's this: feminism killed it.

Today a female teacher who looks after "not quite there" people told me not to say slightly bad words because I'm a "Lady" and I'm just like wtf? I'm flipping 13 years old! 
So that's a FEMALE teacher dissing the rights of a FEMALE, weird or what?
Oh and she totally allows the guys to use slightly bad words. -.-

That's what's called "equal". Well done :)! And concerning your female tutor: The women's movement could have never changed something if there wouldn't have been some men who started arguing in favour of women's rights. That's what's called "empathy".

This is beautiful. I feel like there is no better way to put it. I have given this issue so much thought, but my inability to express myself properly through words kept me from writing anything similar to this. So practical and true. 

P.D Tell your tutor to fuck off.

I totally agree and I am a woman! Don't be freakin paranoid, girls! Just because there are idiots out there who think less of you because of your gender it doesn't mean that every guy is like that. Sometimes they are just being nice. And let's face it... we like it when they hold the door for us. And if they would just ingore these customs, we'd be the first one to call them on it, saying that they are impolite and stuff and where are the good ol' days.
Yes, unequal treatment is a real thing and must be taken seriously but the things some women do and say embarass me, because they are so uncalled for.
Common sense, people! Common sense!
huhh... that ranting felt good.
Anyway, this poem is great! Grabbed the heart of the problem. :)

your teacher reminds me of the professor one of my friends had for her women's studies class, she spouted a lot of anti-male nonsense [the class was all young women], there was also a classmate that had the outrageous belief that all woman should have homosexual relationships to spite men (I wish I was kidding) naturally the teacher did not argue against it...o.O

This is hot. The hottest part is that you're willing to be the leader, but also wouldn't frown on me if I happen to open the door for you (as I am prone to do with someone who has a penis). I remember my uncle, whom I grew up with, shaming me whenever I opened up the door for him because he was embarrassed by it though all I wanted to do was show him respect. It was so weird to me. Now, years later, I am married to a man who opens the door for me, pays for me, defends and supports me. I do the same for him and he lets me! Love is a give, give, give, and take. My husband is not better than I am; he is better at lots of things than I am. I am not better than my husband; I am better at some things than he is. This is why we are a team and why some people still get married to stay married for life.

I am so fed up with that gender stuff and some women/feminists claiming to be so damn modern and open-minded really just are the opposite.
Thank you for this piece - this needs to be said way more often.
