Dating back to the early years of life, males were designated as dominant and women as their slaves. This kept on increasing and women being the slaves couldn’t raise their voice. Later we see many women protection acts coming up and women at least are on the path of achieving equality.
From then to now, we still identify women with pathetic angle and men as the crowned head.
What is feminism?
Feminism is highly misleading. Many of the feminists came up telling us the real meaning of feminism. Feminism does not promote gender superiority. It is the allocation of rights of women on equal grounds.
Why is feminism needed?
Now, many would say that, why do we need feminism if all are equal in eyes of law?
So, not all females are having access to their rights. There are still many girls and women facing suppression, being victims of molestation every day. Thus, feminists stand up in their favour to provide them with their rights for equality.
I do not want you to confuse this with people calling themselves as feminists on social media. Many of them are just part of pseudo propaganda and playing female cards for gender resistance.
Talk of equality
Reflecting gender on equal grounds, Every human being possesses the power to take control of their life. Everybody can show their resistance or agreement. ‘No means no’ is viable to all the genders.
None of us is worthy to insult the other person or infuriate our anger upon.
Nobody should be ill-treated, and this nobody comprises of everyone, whether it be a male, female or transgender.
In the same way, boys too hold the freedom to preserve their dignity and raise voice against discrimination that prevails against them. Now we can’t form an image of a male being suppressed, right? Maybe because there are rarely any activists coming up to raise issues of male toxicity, but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t there.
We have transgender right allocation and women protection acts to some extents, then, why policies for a male are highly neglected?
If women should not be subjected to any unjust treatment, then men too don’t need to hide their emotions every time.
What we have come across as masculinity, is the differentiation since childhood, we didn’t let them play with the dolls; what if their favourite superhero wasn’t a fighter with gunshots but a fairy in pink, we mocked them.
Why we need a man displaying romantic emotions for us and not the feeling of being broke or weeping in grief?
Why we always expect a man to build us a dream house, what if he wanted to hold cooking utensils instead of machine tools, which he has to out of compulsion just to feed his family.
If a woman is not comfortable meeting a stranger, a man too isn’t normal with it, as now every 4 out of 5 persons will judge him just because that rogue planned a rape on you or that creepy uncle didn’t take off his eyes from your body. It’s hard to make everyone believe always that you do not have any bad intentions.
We never think of the ones who wanted to extend their support, offer you a help; who want to be naked with you not physically but emotionally.
What with the guys who can’t even act childish because they have their girlfriend beside them, who expect maturity to handle them.
Who’s responsible for such male toxicity, is it fake feminism, expectations or law and order, which does not even consider male molestation and rape as an offence?
Also, who is responsible for the creation of the terms like ‘Indian feminism’, ‘faux feminism’, is it the laws trying to protect some of the women rights or social media posts, taking a second to turn women into victims without the knowledge of incidents happening.
P.S. – I truly abide judicial laws and this was not with an intention of hurting anybody’s feelings in any way.
