The Infantilisation Of Women: 27 and still a child, a victim, and prey
I expected this at 19. At 27, it’s really grating — Whatever you want to call me, I’m just not the stupid stereotype of a partying, ditsy, fun-loving, naïve and unfocused young woman. Which is incredibly misogynist, but there we go. I like staying in to watch documentaries on geopolitics and buying paint swatches. I want to go to Capri just to see Tiberius’s palaces instead of the beaches. I have strong opinions on how to teach a child to read. In short: I see myself as an adult. But bafflingly, men still don’t.
