The FE-male

An extension, A lower version or An individual?

The general idea of a woman is a weakened form of man,

The general notions of life turn into stereotypes,

More hurt is done with the classifications,

The type of person to be is dictated,

A facade is created, 

Which regulates the strengths allowed,

But also exploited,

Broken barriers are often congratulated, 

But also interrogated,

Seemingly second to males in value,

The respect for women are few,

All this seems unfair,

But try to speak up, if you dare,

It's seen as disrespectful to speak your mind,

which is what most are told to leave behind,

What bravery to continue on,

Dispelling beliefs which were placed upon,

She may do various things and quite well

But she will always just be FEMALE.
