First, this is a very sensitive topic, so I’d be sharing my views about it while trying to avoid setting off World War III.
I saw a movie titled ‘on the basis of sex’, it was about laws that discriminated majorly against women and minoring against men, laws that explicitly state that if you’re a woman you can’t do this or that.
Since the ‘stone age’, men and women have always different distinct roles. Roles that were set by well….who knows.
Now it’s ‘our time’, and that concept still dominates a good part of our society, a good part yes.
For example, men are still the domineering gender when it comes to being pilots, astronauts, miners. Women still dominate being nurses, nannies, and secretaries. This is not to say the other gender isn’t involved, but it’s not as common.
Now, let’s bring it down to us. There are certain things expected of boys just because they are boys, same goes for girls also.
For example, guys are expected to ask girls out on dates, this has been the norm since time began. Times are changing these days, thanks to Twitter. Girls are expected to be good at cooking, thanks to inherited gender roles mentality we have, any girl that couldn’t cook good food is seen as weird. There’s a whole lot of things people around the world do based on prehistoric gender roles.
On and on and on, this continues. But I for one think it’s an outdated way of thinking.
Nobody should be compelled to do anything because they’re either male or female. I think you should just do whatever you want to do and not be restricted by society because ‘it’s a girls thing’ or ‘are you a guy?’.
Times have changed.
Tables have turned.
I implore you my dear,
Forget gender stereotypes.
