Perpetuating the Lack of Feminine

They are speaking of buying a car
'Go in looking sexy
get a better deal
No use my husband as your own
get a man to do it
get a man to help'

'because sales men respond better to men'

It makes me sick to my stomach!
as a woman
of strength, wit, and intelligence
women perpetuating the idea
we must play the damsel in distress
in order to succeed
in order to have what we need
simply because we bleed
that makes our humaness 
than a man?

It makes me sick

I am a woman 
I am a human being
I am capable of doing anything and all things
because I can...
