For a daughter.

When a daughter is just being a child,
"Oh no, look at her.
Intransigent.
Needs to be disciplined."
You tell me.
When a son is just being a child.
"This is how sons are,
he is just being a child"
You laugh.

lovely, and by the way this never changes. think of how the expectations from women faculty are so different from male ones.... yes, a daughter is a precious thing, but someone to fight for more, much more in life
