I refuse to accept that a man is not my equal. Yes, the xx and xy of the species have different communication styles. Yes, sometimes translating across that is damn near impossible. But I will not buy into xy inferiority. It is condesending and disrespectful, and just perpetuates the problem. I will not look at my partner like a child that needs to be raised: I do not feel the need to sleep with a child. He is an adult just like I am. He is responsible just like me.
I will behave accordingly. If that means I’m wrong and I lose everything, so be it. I’m okay with failure when principle is my downfall.
