For the love of god.

So today is International Women's Day, and Google celebrates this with a doodle that's all about women marching with a child, talking with a child, flying an airplane with a child, even artistic achievement is celebrated with a child - and the example is Frida Kahlo, of all people, who was infertile!

No wonder many women are still all about the babies. It might be natural for some, but by god, it is stuffed down all our throats from the day we're born. I never wanted babies, still don't, and am bored to hell and back with this nonsense. It's like men do and women teach how to do. There's nothing wrong with teaching, but the ability to do it is not specifically feminine.

It's all a bit bloody annoying, and ties into this myth of women not existing for themselves. Maybe some of us find our identities through others, having been told that this is our proper function for centuries, but it's ridiculous and always has been.

Here's Frida Kahlo as she painted herself, with the companions she chose.
