i can do it for a while as long as i reveal nothing about my opinions, thoughts or life other than yes, i have a child, my husband is in pharmacy school (dumbasses love this one) and i am a nurse. anything other than that is unacceptable.
im not upset about it anymore, though. it used to bother me. i tried really hard. i cleaned up my act, i cut my hair normal, i went to college and got a respectable degree, im really good at my job, i got a house in a proper kid raising neighborhood, and i still didn't blend.
these days, i am trying hard to camouflage myself so that the mommies of seth's friends think it's ok to have their kids over and seth can have friends. i dont cover up my books, but i also don't put up some of the art that i love.
life sucks this way.
The myth that women shouldn't lift heavy is perpetuated by women who fear work and men who fear women.
