Awesome Woman’s Perspective
ProLifeCorner- Freeport Illinois- Below is a letter posted in the Freeport Journal Standard on April 7, 2017. It is refreshing to see a letter that shows appreciation of the many hardworking men in society. As she says, the recent “Women’s March” does not speak for all women and she has the courage to speak out about it.
Letter: Thank you to the men of society
Dear men, I would like to say thank you for all the great things some of you have contributed to our society. Seems like you are constantly reminded of mistakes made, but little is said about the greatness done.
Thank you for constructing the buildings, bridges, roads, sewer systems, rescuing people and protecting us. You have been criticized for the qualities that go along with being men. I want to apologize on behalf of the women who demonize the men of the world and try to feminize you.
Know that most of us secure women don’t feel the need to wear pink vagina hats and cry in the streets like babies because we don’t get our own way. I can’t imagine you doing the opposite and the outrage that would happen.
Grow up ladies, or whatever you choose to be today. Life isn’t easy and doesn’t always go your way. Try being grateful for the opportunities we are all given and stop blaming others for your failed life decisions or situation. If you have been dealt a bad hand, reshuffle the cards and try again.
Your life is your own responsibility, period. So in closing, I want to say thank you again, and thank you to the men who still open the door for the ladies.
