    on women and women's independence from men. Growing up in american culture, we as little girls are taught through children's stories like Cinderella and Snow White that our prince will come. But when we went to church on Sundays, we were taught that it really didn't matter if our prince ever came, that we were to be submissive to every man we came across. It's confusing as a child. Do we wait or do we submit? In the end, i figured the different religions were all saying basically the same thing about women and we were the bad guy in the stories. Screw that! Why are we getting blamed for everything? Because men fuck-up, it's somehow our fault. What garbage!
