I hate the term ‘tools of the patriarchy’ but my dad is a patriarchal tool.
On the way to work today I had to endure yet another lecture on how the fact that I wear mens clothes is a sign of society destroying itself, and how I’m ruining my chances at life. Whatever that means.
On top of that he reiterated that not having babies is triples my chances of breast cancer.
And then I was treated to a very special brand of batshit, where my dad blames the victim of domestic violence. Obviously, she was dressing like a man (he can tell from her name) and that drove the man to attack her. He’s blameless.
One of these days I am going to run out of patience. Hopefully that coincides with having the money to *leave* rather than the opportunity to get a weapon.
