MADNESS – Georgiann Carlson

men tell us that women are mad
when they don’t do as they are told
that they’re mad and out of control
when they step out of line
or try to break out of the prison
they have built for them
well I agree
a lot of women are mad
pissed off
enraged at the lives they are forced to live
because of patriarchy
mad about all they are expected to give up
furious about forced dependency
poverty
glass ceilings
violence
being considered prey
constantly having to fight for everything
angry that a government made of males
has anything to say about women’s bodies
and what they do with them
yes
a lot of women are mad
with good reason
we just need to get mad enough
to overthrow our jailers
and those who hunt us

I’m an artist, a writer, a vegetarian, an animal rights activist, and quite a few other things as well. I love books, cats, philosophy, good conversation, Chicago and the arts. So my blog is full of bits and pieces but it’s the bits and pieces that make life interesting to me. You can read more of my writing at Rethinking Life
