The older I get, the more I realise that all this talk of women having ‘gone mad’ is actually just women waking up one day, smelling the coffee and feeling fricking furious…
Furious that they twisted themselves like a pretzel all these years trying to conform to what others wanted then to be.
Furious that they didn’t say no more, or more to the point, that they didn’t say f**k you more.
Furious that they didn’t say yes more, that they didn’t feel they could put themselves first.
Furious that their feelings, their emotions and their desires were branded as ‘hormonal’ all these years, as a lame excuse to fob them off and not face up to bad behaviour.
And no, this is not the menopause.
This is called awakening.
The older I get the more I realise that no, women are not going mad.
In fact, they are becoming very very sane indeed.
