I am female, a human all the same, but of a different verity. Gender is really a system of oppression, focused on women . I have discovered that, it was not an illusion, or misconception.
Being born female automatically puts you in a caste of second class citizen of the world. I don’t have as much power approaching things as a man, although I am formally informed I have the right to in first world nations: All the oppressive sexism that still exists, is enforceable by males projected on women in the name of tradition, religion, normalized male social domination of women and violence.
I remember first recognizing it, adults made fun of me, and mimicked my disgust as a child when I openly pointed out this unfair paradox. I wondered why male children were not discouraged and teased in the way female children were. I wonder if male children with female siblings felt the sense of imbalance and sexism. You get a sense of things being wrong when you brother gets a toy airplane, and you get a toy iron. Yea right, like being a happy servant ironing clothes beats the hell out of a future of flying an airplane. That is gender grooming. Females are constantly groomed into servant roles from early on. If I were a boy, I would be reassured my correct observation was validated. But lack of a penis is no logical reason to dismiss observations of one child over another. It would be considered abusive to do this to sibling brothers, and called ‘playing your children off each other.’ or even straight out ‘neglect’ abuse. -yet common sense runs out when the other child happens to be female, and the neglect of nurturing female equality to outside interests as humans has undergone normalizing the idea that females are less important than male children.
What is internalized misogyny? Men like to hurt women when they feel bad about themselves. Women hurt themselves when they are not allowed to defend themselves and have given up. Either way, the woman loses.
White Feminism?? Being White does not save you from high murder rate of domestic violence.
White males often cry that white women have privilege despite their 2nd class status, but women of all colors are victims of domestic and male on female violence.

Although Domestic violence deaths number four a day in the USA, reporting domestic violence is often non-platformed by law enforcement and put in the lowest priority as a crime. The problem with being a white woman is that white men feel entitled to kill women for disagreeing/leaving them/not obeying and other men agree with them.
