Unconscious men belittle the womb in a demeaning language
i.e. bitch, whore, slut to glamorize male superiority.

Unconscious men do violence to the womb i.e. physically/sexually
in the name of cowardice-domestic violence.

Unconscious men don't know that the womb is powerful. For example,
the womb created life and contributed to mankind.

Unconscious men don't know that the womb is intelligent and taught
him the alphabet and the difference between right and wrong.

Unconscious men don't know that beautiful love songs are written
pertaining to the womb i.e. songs of sorrow, happiness, apologies
and songs of love-making.

Gynecologists inspect the womb for traumatization i.e. rape,
child abuse, abandonment, obesity, fibroide, vaginitis, cysts,
miscarriages, hysterectomies, menstrual periods, mammograms,
clitoridectomies (among other things).

The womb weeps in sadness.
The womb suffers emotional distress.
The womb smiles in happiness.
The womb falls victim to substance abuse i.e. alcohol,
narcotics in the name of collateral damage.

The womb fought against patriarch supremacy.
The womb fought against global oppression, sexism, machismo,
misogyny, womanize.

The womb fought for liberation i.e. equality, equal protection of
law, ballot to vote.

The womb is Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Queen Mother Moore,
Ella Baker, Theresa Shoatz, Martha Conley, Daisy Coffey.

The womb is my great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, aunt, sister,
niece, the womb is our guardian angel.
