Im Selbermach-Sonntag hat kousheru einen Text verlinkt, auf den ich hier noch mal extra hinweisen will. Weil er so ehrlich und ohne Angst, eigenes Versagen zuzugeben, aufgeschrieben ist, und zwar im Wolverette Zine, von Jenna:
They say „Stop whining“, „Nobody holds you gals back from anything“, „That’s just you and your ridiculous victim complex“, „We’re not in the fifties anymore – women can do whatever they want!“.
And anytime I hear that, I tend to shut up. Because I’m afraid of the dicussions that may follow, because I’m not as eloquent as I wish I was and because I don’t have 500 spontaneous arguments at hand. Sometimes I even tend to believe them. But as soon as I am alone again I think of it again, as I have time and peace and nobody is there who interrupts me and my thoughts. The fear of looking silly in a discussion is gone because there is no one there whom I have to prove that I am not dumb, paranoid or uninformed – nobody but me.
