Recently I’ve been hearing a lot about feminism. How women don’t get paid equally, how women are sexually objectified, how women have to strive more than guys. Is it me or am I being ignorant to my gender? I mean I haven’t experienced any of that in my life, I really hope that I don’t. 😅
I just think to myself, ever since I started working have I been getting a low pay because of my skin colour or my gender? I rarely ever consider that to be honest, if you need something done you have to put in the effort. I wouldn’t stay in a job I felt was just being discriminatory against me. So how come other people stay? I mean if someone won’t treat you right you don’t stay and ask them to change because the chances of them changing are really small. People were raised differently, not to say that it’s right to exploit someone or discriminate but has it ever occurred to anyone that maybe it works for other people?:( That’s not talking about work though, if you put the effort required I don’t see why someone shouldn’t respect that. It’s really difficult looking at feminism, because there’s so many things that they stand for which don’t make sense but just have to stand for. I mean if you’re not with them, you’re against them, I hate this notion when it comes to organisations and groups. I do support equality in every aspect but I think I’ll take my husband’s name when I get married because I just want to.😍 I guess from a different angle that can be considered as unfair, why should women take their husband’s name, but how is it unfair if it is my choice. Where is the so called equality then, should I live up to all expectations of this disease called feminism or should I follow my heart in equality for all?
I do believe women have come a long way since the earth was created just as men have.:mrgreen: I mean it’s a curse and a blessing to be human at times. I sometimes look at animals, do they ever think that, oh my gosh, we should start a movement against the opposite sex because we feel we’re not appreciated enough? 😂The problem with us humans is that we just want power. I always think everything is built around women, women this, women that. I mean sometimes I wonder if we can be satisfied. I won’t speak for men because I’m not a men, but from my perspective I think if I was a man, I’d definitely be in an awkward situation with women every time.😱
People tend to forget that it was nature that made women like this. I mean you can’t really say that all those years ago women felt they were just pieces of property. I doubt they felt that way, at least not all of them. Then they came one woman who thought to herself, “I can be way better at running the country, these men just don’t satisfy the views of women.” I agree in a way, I mean they’re men, haha. So she thought, “I can’t do this alone, I need to influence someone to help me, or maybe find that one girl who can stand beside me no matter their views.” So they stood against men and the woman became the leader of that community or whatever. But then that girl she had recruited thought to herself, “hm I wonder how much I can push these men and women.” She’d always wanted to get back at her father for treating her mother like that so she thought, you know what, “I bet we can live better off without men.” So she found like minded people and made a march against different stuff that brought justice to her. As she grew stronger she began to demand more. Hatred flared across the country, people taking sides, hatred started spreading, selfishness sipped into the culture and things started deteriorating ever since. 😐
I think we’ve lost the meaning of what’s important in life. Some people always blame religion for all things that happen to women, to marriage and morals. People think to themselves, oh the bible is just a book that has served way past its period. I mean I don’t care if someone is religious or not, morality is common sense so why are we trying to fight our ethics?😓 Women should obviously have the same freedom as men, so should men have the same freedom as women. Everyone has seem to lost what’s important, I have to say that even I can be a bit biased if that’s the word. All I’m saying is that we should at least be trying to work together not be better than each other. We can never be better than each other only better than ourselves because you may think, yes I am the manager of a successful company, but there’s that someone who is a president of a kinda successful country haha.😂😂
I guess what my main point is, is following a particular movement a good thing? Everything has its flaws, we should at least try to examine stuff and see if they actually make sense for a better world, because if it’s a better world then it’s a win win situation rather than it just being with particular people.
Let’s strive to achieve success and freedom but in a way that brings peace to people. I’m not preaching anything just thinking love and compassion are underrated in this society of ours.
