My friend Winter and I were talking about the new Wonder Woman movie. As lifelong fans of the magnificent wielder of the lasso of truth, we were enthralled. The beautiful Amazonian Princess was amazing. Her bravery was boundless. She was sexy, yet demure; strong, yet gentle; noble, but humble…simple, yet complex. She battled men in war and was feminine enough to charm the toughest of them. She was a perfect specimen of a woman – conquering forces of evil, with never a hair out of place. She was tireless. She also didn’t have to work, pay bills, run errands, buy groceries, or put out the trash. Now, don’t get me wrong, I loved the movie. I AM Wonder Woman, as so many other women are, but in real life, action figures are human and often misunderstood. Here are a few things Wonder Women wish men knew.
Being a Wonder Woman is hard work, but it’s worth it. I just want to love you, and love always wins. So, let’s win together. I look forward to sitting on the porch with you, with a six pack of Heineken, and a bag of chips, listening to Future, Kendric Lamar, Billy Joel, Barry Manilow and EDM, with my hair in a ponytail, my head resting on your strong shoulders, with my cape off…covering the both of us.
