Gender Equality

DISCLAIMER: This is all subject to my opinion and interpretations of what I see and experience. The statements here-in are not indefinite, infallible or absolute.

Watching Mona Lisa Smile. Contemplating the roles society continues to try and force men and women into and the unfair standards in place. Women must be intelligent, attractive, patient, yielding and sexually respectable while also being strong, independent and thick-skinned.

Men may philander and booze their way through life with little or no judgement from society. They do not have to answer for how many women they bed whereas women must answer for every notch on her bedpost regardless of what gender said bed partners are.

BUT: Men must have a car, a job and a financial plan for their future. They must be the bread-winners, the initiators and the leaders. They must help form and shape our society and protect it. As if our society really needed protection from itself.

If we as a society truly desire “gender equality” there are steps that must be taken. We need to stop focusing on what gender somebody is or identifies with. We also need to throw away everything we think we know in regard to what men should do and what women should do, and also what they, according to their gender, must absolutely not do.
