My Paradise

My paradise is a place where I can walk freely without fear of a staring eye or potential unsolicited touch.
 
My paradise is a place where sexist ideas, objectification and entitlement are unwelcome and no where to be found.  
 
My paradise is a place where I don't worry about how late it is and the potential threat of walking alone.  
 
My paradise is a place where the word "no" is accepted without agitation and is not a potential trigger for assault or murder.  
 
My paradise is a place where I don't have to teach my female child life saving skills for social situations. A place where I don't have to instill that fear and groom her to avoid assault in a world that victim blames.  
 
My paradise, you sexist pig, is not a place where I am shut in the house waiting for my man to come home so I can greet him like a docile pet.
