Women Are Not Saints

September 3, 2021

Women are three dimensional.
Too often I see them reduced to smiling, angelic, do-no-wrong shells of femininity.

But guess what - women are human beings - with the same capacity for good and bad as men have.

And this endless hand wringing of women’s goodness and virtue, and of their childlike purity, only ‘empowers’ yet another narrow, cartoon version of them.

Because why do we ask if god might be a she, without ever questioning that so could the devil?
