Feminist poem 3 the real patient zero

The things men say about women, when disgruntled,
often, amount to some of the very same things women say about men.
They’re heard very differently and categorized very differently
but they can be the exact same thing.

He was always undercutting me, breaking my confidence, and
then he would say I was a bummer because I lacked confidence.

She was always undercutting me, breaking my confidence,
and then she would say I was a bummer because I lacked confidence.

He would say he liked to be around people
who were more upbeat and positive.

She would say she liked to be around
people were more upbeat and positive.

I was depressed because he didn’t really love me
or even like me that much and treatead me like crap
and he would say it was
hard for him because I was always depressed.

I was depressed because she didn’t really love me or
even like me that much and she would say it was
hard for her because I was always depressed.

These are exact mirrorings via either gender. There’s countless of them.

In the movie Certain Women – **** PLOT SPOILER!!!

LOOK NO FURTHER!!!

SPOILER ALERT!!

one of the things the wiki spoiler tells of Certain Women
is that at the end of the movie the 3 unrelated stories intersect
as follows:

On her way home, she falls asleep at the wheel and plows into an empty field.
Laura visits Fuller in prison where he tells her his wife left him for a man in prison and implores Laura to write to him.
At the site of their new home Gina looks at her pile of sandstone with satisfaction.
Back at the ranch Jamie tends to the horses, still painfully alone.
The three stories intersect in passing: Laura is having an affair with Gina’s husband Ryan, and Jamie inquires Laura’s firm while searching for Beth.

The only significance to the intersection of the three stories
is that the three stories happened to all be part of the film.

It is the eye of the hurricane of gender relations,
and in a sense, all genders have relations, and the total
of all genders makes up the entire world.
Places in the possibility range where whomever
is experiencing the exact same thing.
