    I existed. But not as a woman. As if being a woman was a crime, something shameful. That needed to be hidden. A secret. It started with the need to cover myself. I needed to hide my body. I cut my hair. I needed to look manly. Gave up lotions and creams... who needs soft skin. In gestures I screamed... see... I do not exist. I am just a human. Not a woman. Accept me please. I'm confident like you, I dress up in trousers and t shirts. I too don't cry, I bottle up my feelings. My desires, I deny. I don't dance. I don't sing. I earn. Material needs, I fulfill. I'm just a human, trying to be a man. I'm not a woman. Please understand.
    We never empowered our women. Empowering would've meant helping them accept their femininity and come out and celebrate being a woman. Even in their empowerment, women have been duped. We've been taught to become manly... in order to be heard and seen.
