International Women’s Day, however, implies that women are socially significant for—what? For being women? Either that is mind-bogglingly arrogant or unspeakably patronizing.
Do you like us arrogant or patronizing? We can do both!
So women are so arrogant that they consider their mere existence a favor to society, that being born a woman is something that society needs to acknowledge as a great achievement? Or else are women being patronized as though they were children so young as not to understand the concept of achievement, as when two-year-olds are given a prize merely for showing up at the “competition”?
I'm a woman! Give me a day merely for that fact!
