Women's Strength

I'm sick of these posts popping up everywhere.  I'm sure I can't be the only one.  The posts about how strong women are because they wear heels, can carry a baby, etcetera, etcetera.  I'm sorry if I can't carry a baby, but I can wear high heels.  I choose not to because I think it's stupid for anyone to wear them.  They're badly designed most of the time and fuck your feet up miserably.  Then they say that they're strong because they can burn their foreheads with curling/straightening irons and not give it a second thought.  Again, this strength is caused by superficial bullshit that shouldn't be done in the first place.  Half the women spend three hours straightening their hair because they don't want it curly, and the other half curl it because they don't want it straight.  Why should we bother doing this?  Both hairstyles are equally good looking in today's society, so why even bother picking?  Then there's the make-up deal, which is even worse.  They regularly spend money on things to make themselves look 'prettier' when they don't even have to bother.  Poor women buy these things, at that, which is even worse.  But, even worse than that whole shit storm is when they say they can cry themselves to sleep and then pretend it didn't happen.  Why should this be used to state strength?  Hasn't crying been used to show weakness since the beginning of recorded history?  Granted, the recovery is more important than the mistake, but still.  We shouldn't allow this to be thrown around since men can do it to.  Some of us do, at that.  Most of us just realize about thirty seconds in that we can just as easily do something more productive with our time than cry.  Why should women be awarded for this while men are frowned upon for it?  Then again, it could be some sort of revenge, since men are allowed to fuck anything that walks and be considered a king, while if women do it they're considered a slut.  I frown upon both equally, though.
