They told me

They told me… 
…I couldn’t
…I wasn’t allowed
…they would do
…they don’t do

“They” “told” me…
One syllable words that take away power and makes women hand over responsibility. 
Words that make me want to shout “please inform yourself rather than be told”, that make me angry at “them”, and that break my heart a little for every woman who says “they told me… but I don’t want to… but they won’t let me.”
