How I Learned To Be A Woman....Wait, Nevermind.

Clearly, there are so many ways to be a woman. We no longer have to fit into traditional stereotypes of dresses and frailty and helplessness (unless we want to, which is totally fine). The idea of what is female has become increasingly nuanced, granting each of us the freedom to define womanhood on our own terms. Thankfully for us, all of the women and men that are out there have different and interesting and complex tastes, and so, we can all find our significant other, our tribe, our supporters while still remaining true to ourselves.
Complexity noted, womanhood to me means to be caring.

But somehow she never seemed to get it. Then we would get frustrated. And now, twenty-something years later, I’m getting it.
