“I’ve never met a man who was stronger than me. Physically yes, of course, my arms are tiny little noodles, but emotionally and mentally? No. Women aren’t build stronger, but we are made stronger, forced stronger. Unfortunately through societies unnecessary hardships and oppression of women.

Men can’t handle that. They just can’t. The world is build for them, when they don’t get their way, when the world isn’t what they assumed it should be, they dissolve, they break down, they don’t understand it and refuse to adapt. Like angry babies.”—
