O, Nature! You are a cruel, cruel mistress. O society! Truly, you treat us poorly.
Menstruation ... lament!
Unequal pay ... lament!
But ah, to say it plainly:
Creator! Take not away our naps!
Say, if you will, that the old crone's daily repose does not decrease her vitality!
Say, indeed you must, that science is a corpulent prevaricator of some significant size!
What a burden to bear, womanity, from first breath to last: torturous childbirth, vexing footwear of terrible affliction, media scrutiny of all things corporeal, cultural objectification of all things sexual.
Womanity! Your burden is great, yea, until your dying day.
Nap not, lest ye meet an early grave.
