Well I have read many feminist arguments and most of them have felt a bit hypocritical, always. But this one paragraph really shook me up. This is the actual issue. That underlying sense of superiority that’s been instilled in the minds of men from birth. This is going to continue even if the world heeds to all the superficial requests of these self proclaimed feminists that sprout out of every corner. Yes, unequal pay, discrimination based on looks, objectification are all horrible and so bad, but these are the effects, not the cause. This is not what we should be voicing out to eradicate. The root is different. “Don’t throw like a girl”, “You need to be strong, you are a man!”, “Quit crying like a girl” – it is these stereotypes that need to be lifted.
I joined Facebook way back in 2009, when I was about 12 with just one purpose in mind – to create the sickest, baddest looking farms of all time in FarmVille. The games used to be the most interesting aspect of Facebook ; the constant status updates of what I was doing or where I was having soup held no interest for me.
It still doesn’t, but my farmer/chef/castle defending days are behind me now. The new interest is the comment section.
It is that time of the month. No not that! It’s time for the customary haircut.
You have so many ideas. That one list from buzzfeed which promised the hairstyles that are to be ‘in’ this year pops into your head and you have all your hopes on #3.
