Despite the agency LRRH shows when cutting herself and her grandmother out of the wolf, she still has to wield a knife anytime she wants to stray from the path. She apparently needs a weapon to defend her choices.
This is just a reflection of being a woman in our society. We have to defend our sexual choices to our government, Rush Limbaugh, Susan G. Komen and even our own families. And that isn’t even including the multitudes of our own fucked up internalized messages about sexuality and self-perceived sluttiness that many of us were raised to believe.
It’s not really straying from the path with everyone’s voices in your ear, is it? Let me know when I don’t need the knife anymore.
