Women have never waged wars. never mobilised as groups to hack each other to pieces. for the longest time, they never had — nor were allowed — to fight. so now they fight for everything, from social justice to the right to their minds to staving off boredom to simply experiencing the world that they were for so long locked out of, in a visceral and honest way. a byproduct of this form of fighting is a deep-rooted aversion to atrophy.
