I wouldn’t often argue with somebody who claimed that women are infinitely better than men, even though I know it’s a downright lie. Why? Because women have been made to feel inferior to their male counterparts for centuries. It’s about time we accepted a little praise even if it is vastly inflated.
Ultimately, we all know that women are just as capable as men when it comes to being successful, but few of us recognize that women can also be just as evil. Disney taught us that when they saturated our favorite childhood films with female villains, but rather than remain in the form of cartoon characters, as we grew up we saw women come to life in news headlines connecting them to atrocious crimes.
The notion that a woman couldn’t level up to some of the worst men in history is a preposterous assumption inspired by centuries of male-induced terror. After all, can you think of a woman off the top of your head that could compare with Adolf Hitler? Osama Bin Laden? Pol Pot? Joseph Stalin? No. But that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.
This was something that Jessica Ellis felt passionately about when she confronted Academy Award-winning director, Michael Moore on Twitter for his rather misguided tweet which insinuated that women were superior to men due to the fact that they have never been implicated in anything atrocious.
