Headlines:  Senator Warren kicked out of senate talks for reading letter by Coretta Scott King against AG nominee.  JPop Idol dies suddenly.  Burlesque Lady shames trolls.

Why is what's between my legs
a weapon?
A weapon to use against me,
to keep me down,
to shut me up,
to dismiss me,
to not take me seriously?
What's between my legs is
It's irrelevant to how
smart I am,
thoughtful I am,
rational I am,
useful to the world I am.
Just because I have 
a uterus,
2 X chromosomes,
doesn't make me different than you.
I'm a human,
as worthy as anyone else.
Gender is meaningless to value. 
We all have value.
