What Happens When A Woman Has An Opinion, The Most Incurable Thing Of All — VIDEO

In this wonderful little video, BuzzFeed explores what happens when women have opinions. Because even in an era when "feminism" is a buzzword and conversation around women's issues is pervasive, it's still a social impropriety to be a woman with an opinion. The video opens with a woman being clinically diagnosed by a male doctor as "having an opinion" as though she has some kind of terrible illness. Which is sometimes how it feels to be a woman who has an idea and something to say about it.

Women who try to have a voice are still treated a certain way in general, even in educated circles. Women with opinions are often derided as shrill, b*tchy or insufferable, whereas passionate men don't receive the same vitriol for their ideas. More to the point, men with opinions are often handed a soapbox from which to preach them from, no matter how ridiculous they might be. Case in point: our future president Mr. Donald Trump (I say future not because I support him but because I think this might, sadly, actually be the world we live in, and possibly deserve). Politics aside, here are a few of the things, or "side effects" that will happen when a woman has an opinion:

1. She Will Be Alienated From Family And Friends
