She never felt the need to change….
and nobody wanted her to.
I knew her well….though she has been gone now for a while.
She was never boring even though she didn’t drink or party every week or wear three inches of make up.
I never heard her once yell out “You go Gurl!” She would have never bought a tee shirt for her little girl that read “Boys are stupid, Throw rocks at them.”
She just never felt the need to be “liberated” from anything or that she had to fight for “equality”….that never crossed her mind. She fully knew and appreciated her advantages.
She didn’t blame men or patriarchy or blamed anyone for anything.
I loved her independence and dependency.
She was loved and respected by men and women.
She was an American woman.
I miss her.
