Gender Equality

I figured out why being female is so much better than being male. The answer is simple. Hair dryers. These all-purpose machines don’t just make your hair silky and shiny (or frizzy and dry depending on the day), but they also melt ice, kill bugs, dry clothes, and most importantly, warm feet. Have you noticed that when you get out of a shower, your feet and hands are more cold than usual? You dry them with a towel, but still there are chunks of ice floating through you veins. This is where hair dryers come in. You start drying your hair. It flies in all directions to the cacophonous noise of the dryer. Then you stop. Your feet are cold, but your hair seems so warm. And then suddenly, your feet are receiving the warm blessings that your hair received. That’s what is so great about being female. Men, who have no need for a hair dryer never learn this secret. It is a sacred secret in the fraternity of womanhood.

  1. I realize this post is ancient history, but I just read it and wanted to add something great about hair dryers:

    My midwife used one to inflate my birth pool!

    (And she had to bring her own hairdryer because I don't have one!)
