Women’s Wrath and Double Standards: Ladies First Rants About Revenge Narratives

Share This Post

Often at this time of year the queer side of the Internet talks about celebrating ‘Wrath’ instead of ‘Pride’ so as to better acknowledge the world’s many injustices. Last time Ladies First covered why we need Pride. Today, Kori and Taylor let loose about the double standards regarding revenge narratives and who gets to revel in them. After thousands of years of oppression and being spoken over, all women restrain a huge, hellish dose of wrath.
