How We View Women: A Tanka

How we view women
We revere virginity
Sacred and profane
Beauty, yet also tainted
Our confusion is quite deep


Do you love women, or just vaginas?

For so many men
The claim they love women
Means they’re fond of vaginas
And they miss so very much

Of what it means to
Connect with others and
Understanding love

For a vagina
Is only a small piece
Of what it means
To be woman
