“…A man who does not mind to spit his first meal from his mother’s breast and spit into the bowl he eats,
bury so many women that even the earth is now female.
That’s why she is known as Mother Earth.
This is where the glory of fairies comes from.
They even made the earth a woman by being buried alive.”
Very devoted, always veteran. May all our women who bloom from where they bleed and make this day worth celebrating, happy and enlightened, not just one day.
