“Having it all” is subjective. Articles that ask whether women can “have it all” assume otherwise. But there’s no one-size-fits-all formula for a happy life. Work, family, career, art, sex, friends, religion, travel — these are just some of the things that we with vaginas are trying to balance in our pursuit of fulfillment.
What unites us is our passionate commitment to that pursuit. We’re also passionate about ensuring equal rights (and equal pay) for women. We definitely vote against people who treat women as second class citizens.
“Having a ball” doesn’t mean we don’t take things seriously — we do. In fact, we may be accused of taking things TOO seriously. It just means we’re committed to having some goddamn fun in this life. Otherwise, what the hell is the point?
So: fun, yes. Balancing act, yes. Equality, yes.
Individuality, HELL yes.
