Girls just wanna have fun

Girls just wanna have fun.
Oh no, that’s way too much to ask for
We want,
To stop carrying pepper sprays around
Because masculine hands somehow find a way to our bodies;
To stop buying sanitary pads as if they’re drugs
Smuggled without ‘men’ knowing the basics of reproduction;
To not have to put in twice the effort for the same position
In a corporate world that cannot look at us without a pink filter;
To fast, if at all, for health related reasons
not for husbands who’ll get peppery if we earn more than them;
To explain that a saree reveals just as much( if not more) as a crop top
Without being called a brat by the nosy neighbour;
Girls just wanna take birth inspite of not having a penis.
