In Their Stupidity

~~~~~ Men, In their stupidity, try to control women. It is not merely power and sex, but fear, jealousy. What they have done and we have allowed, is a sin. Women as equals, would better the world, you’d see. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave […]

Ask Only One Question
