Where do women stand in nowadays world? How is feminism related to all of this? If you go ask a feminist, he or she would probably say “Where women stand, ehhh, above all men”. Now you know what feminism stands for.
What all feminists say is ACTUALLY the truth. Because what they are saying is in rage and hidden emotions, as deep inside they know, and they truly believe that, men think that they are better than women and they degrade other women.
Now I am going to be completely honest and straight as hell. Not gonna be biased at all. I am going to be speaking about women empowerment and sexism, not just looking over it in our society but all over the world. The true cause for this distress among women is not women themselves, it is us. US MEN.
Yeah I know, I said I was not going to be biased, I am not.
Trust me, I kinda worked my heads off trying to figure out the true cause behind this crucial problem.
Before I move on. You should know the basics. Your thoughts lead to feelings, your feelings lead to actions and your actions lead to results. That much we all know.
Now comes the crispy part.
Most of your actions are controlled by your subconscious mind. Now don’t expect me to explain you how this functions. Get a life, go google it.
So whatever instructions we get and perform subconsciously, is actually drilled inside of us in the form of our memories, also known as our programming. Since childhood, we have been told that boys shouldn’t cry. Men are stronger. Those who cry are weak. And stuff mostly related to crying.
At first I ignored most of it. But then I started listening to such atrocity and it got drilled in me. As a teenager, I realised this, but there are thousands of people who do not. They let those words drive their actions. Many times you see a man cutting off a woman while she’s speaking. Not literally cutting off, I mean stopping them in between when they are giving their opinions or views over a specific topic. Don’t go too deep.
You further see women being degraded by their husbands, fathers and even their friends as they demotivate them by creating hurdles in their life, stopping them to achieve their goals because subconsciously many men believe that men have a status above women. They in turn say things to their daughters and female friends which they think is alright because they really feel that it does not matter much. But the truth is that it does matter. What you negatively say to people hurts them, pulls them down, makes them weep, tortures them, but nahhhhh, most men seriously do not look at that because they themselves do not know of how their words affect others.
A Feminist Ted speaker, Justin Baldoni put it this way, “MEN, MEN MEN…MEN! I understand…Growing up we tend to challenge each other. We’ve got to be the toughest, the strongest, the bravest men that we can be. And for many of us, myself included, our identities are wrapped up in whether or not at the end of the day we feel like we are man enough. But I have got a challenge for all the guys, because men love challenges. I challenge you to see if you can use the same qualities that you feel make you a man, to go deeper into yourself. Your strength, your bravery, your toughness. Can we redefine what those mean and use them to explore our hearts? Are you brave enough to be vulnerable? To reach out to another man when you need help? To dive headfirst into your shame? Are you strong enough to be sensitive, to cry whether you are hurting, or you’re happy, even if it makes you look weak? Are you confident enough to listen to women in your life? To hear their ideas and their solutions? To hold their anguish and actually believe them, even if what they are saying is against you? And will you be man enough to stand up to other men when you hear “locker room talk,” when you hear stories of sexual harassment? When you hear your boys talking about grabbing ass or getting her drunk, will you actually stand up and do something so that one day we don’t have to live in a world where a woman has to risk everything and come forward to say the words, “ME TOO.”
No matter how much I wish to disagree with what he said, and think that women are treated equally, and further think that FEMINISM SUCKS AND WOMEN ARE JUST TOO EMOTIONAL TO BE CONTROLLING THEIR FEELINGS OVER SMALL THINGS, I am not going to be that person who ignores them and believes this lie. We have all heard that it is better to accept a painful truth, then believing a beautiful lie. So my message is loud and clear. Treat women with equality. Listen to them, their opinions, their views, their everything. And do no speak badly of them or look at them as pieces of meat walking around. If you wish to end all feminism and sexism talks. Then be the change, make others hear your voice too, and share this article. And yeah, do like and comment as well.
