There’s a lot of female rage going around these days. Women everywhere are fighting against the chains of societal expectations, for the right of being not just allowed to be who we are but also appreciated for it.
It’s not just in other countries, like Iran, where oppression is part of the political system and women risk their lives speaking up against it every day.
It’s everywhere. We had enough of being blamed for and locked in for men’s sexual desires, molding us from an early age, objectifying, subjecting to self deprecation.
I know Victoria’s secret
And, girl, you wouldn’t believe
She’s an old man who lives in Ohio
Making money off of girls like me”
Cashin’ in on body issues
Sellin’ skin and bones with big boobs
I know Victoria’s secret
She was made up by a dude

We had enough of mommying our partners, serving, existing only for their purpose, for their support, as an appendage.
All day, every day, therapist, mother, maid
Nymph, then a virgin, nurse and a servant
Just an appendage, live to attend him
So that he never lifts a finger
Labour by Paris Paloma
We had enough of not acknowledging our power, our contribution, our skills, our knowledge, our results.
Say that again
I didn’t quite hear ya
Messed with the wrong bitch in the wrong era
I been at work
And I got my badge of honour

We are QUEENS, and we are here to break the chains.
A firestone, forged in flames
Wildest card, run the game, run the game
Can’t say the same in this world of change
Don’t fear the pain; just break the chain
Queen of the Kings by Alessandra Mele
Women have so much to give to the world, and yet, the world resists. So much changed, yet, here we have a young generation feeling the same frustration, that’s growing into anger over how much less freedom they still have than men.
Imagine a world where there is a country led by a queen, and another led by a king. Here is how ChatGPT’s artificial intelligence sees it:
Once upon a time, there were two neighboring kingdoms – one led by a queen and the other by a king. The queen was known for her wisdom and compassion, while the king was known for his strength and determination.
The society in the queen’s kingdom was markedly different from that in the king’s kingdom. In the queen’s kingdom, women held a significant amount of power and were actively encouraged to participate in all aspects of society. Women were seen as equal to men, and there were no restrictions on their education or career opportunities. In fact, the queen herself was an accomplished scholar and had several women advisors in her council.
On the other hand, in the king’s kingdom, women were relegated to traditional roles such as homemakers and caregivers. They were not allowed to hold positions of power and were expected to defer to men in all matters. This meant that women were often excluded from decision-making processes and were not given the same opportunities for education and career advancement as men.
Over time, these differences in societal values became increasingly apparent. The queen’s kingdom was prosperous and progressive, with a thriving economy and a high standard of living for all its citizens. In contrast, the king’s kingdom was marked by inequality, poverty, and unrest.
One day, the queen and the king met to discuss the differences in their societies. The queen shared her belief in the importance of equal opportunities for women and the positive impact it had on her kingdom. The king was impressed by her arguments and recognized the need for change in his own kingdom.
From that day on, the king implemented policies that promoted gender equality and encouraged women’s participation in all aspects of society. Over time, the king’s kingdom began to see the same level of progress and prosperity as the queen’s kingdom.
In the end, the two kingdoms became known for their shared commitment to gender equality and became a shining example for others to follow.
It gives me hope that AI, that is learning from humans and the average of society sees a way for the kings and queens learn from each other, exist together. I want to believe it will happen, that change will speed up after almost 200 years of suffragettes and feminists and everyday women. I want to believe that all these women in the videos will make the world a better place. Don’t miss your chance, don’t just scroll: watch their power, their strength, their talent. Maybe they’ll change you too a little.

Wow! The most and apt ‘Queen’ post. Thank you for writing this.
Great selection of videos — made my day. Sometimes it’s just easier to not complain about expectations, but we have to remember that we are equals.
