Featured Post: What we’re told not to talk about – Georgiann Carlson

Georgiann Carlson – Women can talk, as long a they don’t tell the truth

Brave & Reckless

women aren’t allowed to tell the truth
about what happens to them
about their lives
about motherhood
about feeling trapped
raising kids
staying home
when they’d rather be out
living their own lives
about when men do to them
about how they feel
about inequality
about the never ending violence aimed at them
about hating the unfairness
they live with each day
women aren’t allowed to talk about
how insane the beauty industry is
and what they are expected to do
in order to stay young forever
how they disappear when they become older
how they are sometimes
forced to compete against each other
for men
in order to survive
women aren’t allowed to talk about
the way they are put down
for loving younger men
women aren’t allowed to talk about
the resentment they feel
when some men look at them
about how they are held back
lied to
