I was influenced to believe from an immature age that feminine architecture is at the lowest foundation of the predominantly male-run social power. The constructs that form modern society are built on the backs of unheard women. The struggles of the past form the future. Sitting in negligence does not change this structure of unfamiliarity.
I was not taught my basic bodily anatomy until college. The construction of the feminine mammal was seen as a disgusting and preposterous thing to learn and discuss, for a woman's issues could have never competed with the struggles of a man.
I was not offered menstrual products until my final year of high school. The poor taxation of the bloody sticks held above our heads like a dog wanting a bone. Do you need this?
The destruction of femininity lies in the hands of the prejudiced populace who refuse to realize the discriminatory practices we have held against women for centuries.
