Yesterday was International Women's Day.
Did I "celebrate" it?
I'm naturally rebellious - I always go against the flow. I don't mind that others took off work to do it. Just don't judge me, because I didn't and wouldn't.
Did I go shopping?
Yes, I did. I don't like anyone, or group, telling me what to do. I am FREE. I am an Independent Thinking Woman!
Did I shop deliberately because it was International Women's Day?
Yes. I was suspicious that perhaps that suggestion was from a man (husband) haha
Did I wear RED?
No. I wore GREEN.
The earliest organized Women's Day observance was held on February 28, 1909, in New York, by the Socialist Party of America in remembrance of the 1908 strike of the International Ladies Garment Worker's Union.
My maternal Grandmother used to be in the Garment Workers Union in Dayton, Ohio. She was a single mom. She was a seamstress, working various projects in the making of military uniforms. She used to sew a penny in the pocket when she could.
Anyway, it seems women these days really HATE men. I like men. I actually get along better with men, than women. At parties, I tend to hang out with the guys. I like how they think. I was a daddy's girl - maybe that is why? I favored my male cousins...I also had 3 sons. It's just the way I am. Back when I used to work, I preferred male bosses. I found the women managers, were catty and competitive. I'm sad that men are not the way they were when my dad was alive. Back then, men were men.
I guess, the Feminist's would probably believe, that I am a trader to my own gender - So be it.
