This may or may not become a thing, but I sort of spiraled yesterday because I opened up that box of feels of “you can’t do this because your body” and there was probably nothing more devastating than being told that over and over and over – not because of any physical ailment, but because I was born female. Thus, it was useless to teach me higher maths and sciences (even though I would have loved learning) because, I wouldn’t need it, my life was already planned out.

Girls don’t need to learn science < because their job is just to become a wife and mother.

(and other lies my parents told me)
