Pig Sty

November 9, 2011

Do you know why it took women thousands of years to gain relative equality in our society? Because one day, thousands of years ago, back when no one was really sure who should be making the decisions, a three year old boy unwittingly contributed his two cents and then everything went to hell.

Me: James, why does Dad go to work?

James: Because he’s a man.

***

James: Mama, you’re a woman.

Me: Affirmative.

James: Are you also a person?

***

James: Mama, clean up this pig sty!

(Sure. Where else would a chauvinist pig live? )

***

Whenever things like these slip out of his cute little head, I gently correct his misconception and then graffiti uteruses all over his bedroom wall

    Hilarious! But I think James may need to get sunglasses and a fake mustache to go out in public from now on.

    Apparently, James isn’t the only one.

    According to UNICEF, “Women perform 66 percent of the world’s work, produce 50 percent of the food, but earn 10 percent of the income and own 1 percent of the property.”

    If the uterus graffiti works, we should think about implementing it globally!
