Feminism

The new generation has got the concept of feminism totally wrong.

Feminism is not at all ‘boy bashing‘. Feminism means EQUALITY for both men and women. Equal pay, equal recognition, equal treatment as human beings. The new generation thinks that feminism means trashing men which is absurd.

However, I think there is a lot of need of feminist people in our society because we need to remove gender roles from its roots in my opinion. I think we can start from little things like, don’t shame men for crying or helping around in the house like cooking, cleaning and do not call out women for earning and being single in her 30s or her lifetime.

Feminism for women means to be independent in every way. It means she can live her life on her own terms without the input of the society. As a 21st century woman, I am expected to get married by 26 and have kids by 30. But I have no intention of doing so. I have always been a sort of rebel. I hate being told what to do and I like doing my work independently. So being told what to do with my life is a big no from me.

As Ariana Grande rightfully sings ‘God is a woman’, I think we all need to let that message sink in and keep in mind that whenever we are disrespecting women, we are also disrespecting God. I think mysogynist people need to keep this in mind when they are being sexist.

And lastly, as I have mentioned above, feminism is not at all boy bashing which many of the ‘stan twitter’ accounts fail to understand. P.S. if you don’t know what stan twitter is you’re probably too old. But anyway, I hope this post made an impact on you and I hope that you will keep fighting for the equal rights of men and women all around the globe.
