Why do we always hate men for not understanding and supporting us? Why have we made this a war of the genders, when there are just as many women who judge us, dismiss us, dehumanise us and devalue us? All those aunties who are over-eager to get you married the moment you hit eighteen. Those women who judge you if you are doing better than them at life. Slut, bitch, whore… They call you all sorts of names. Those who urge you to try and make an abusive marriage work. Those who think you need a man to be accepted. Those who have no inhibitions ruining your relationships and seducing the man you are with. Those who would probably destroy you, if they see you walking with a man. Very few women actually uplift each other. We try to bring each other down more than any man does.
