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.

So what? ( Featured by fllnthblnk )

Wow, this is surprisingly good.

I was honestly expecting some "Anti-Feminazi" rant but instead I got a great piece regarding the different reactions towards feminism and the reactions TO those reactions.

This poem really hits the point!
I pity all those poor guys who still try to show some chivalry in this age of 'everyone looks out for himself!' and get beaten up for being "sexist" for their efforts!
Love it!

This reminds me of an argument a southern republican woman was making about how her son was being so liberal and how she missed the good old days. As a white liberal male that saddens me but if she wants to be property of her husband to be beaten and raped every night if he so chooses far be it from me to stop her giving up her rights.

Jesus! You would think that we'd be a little more grateful for an ally like you. =_=; ... Seriously, are we that jaded as a gender that we can't be a little grateful?
