197. Thank you....We're taught that it's the 'natural order' of things, and that we should comply.
It's a hard thing for women to shake off....especially because we live with men, love men in our lives. It is INCREDIBLY difficult to think of them as part of the group that has oppressed us. It's hard to challenge the men, our loved ones, to face their own sexism when it pops up, and to change, to speak up to other men. Many women live with a man who it is near impossible to take that risk with, and no woman likes it when her husband or boyfriend gets upset or defensive with her, angry, if we point it out to them.

Sometimes you'd just rather go to bed and get a decent night sleep. :)
