You remember how I said I’m a feminist. Well let’s fine-tune what that means for me.
I woke up this morning planning to go to shoprite to buy chicken and chips, but it’s been raining all morning 🙄.
So let’s get to the point. Today is for the men.
Feminism for me is about breaking boundaries limiting girls all around the world, giving them the chance to become something. But it’s also about protecting the rights of EVERYONE. Male or female, it goes both ways for me.
Honestly the feminist movement is slowly becoming a terrorist movement, we’re harassing these men and not taking any blame for our actions.
Women are not always the victims fam, I had a conversation with a couple of boys my age. And most of them had sex with older cousins or housemaids at appallingly young ages, but it’s not viewed as rape because they’re boys. They had sex.
A 12 year old boy has sex after coercion with a 26 year old woman and it’s not rape. But it happens to a 14 year old girl and it’s rape?. Hypocrisy at it’s finest. Rape is rape.
Men in our society are taught to repress their emotions from a young age, we say ‘man up’ or ‘men don’t cry’ or ‘you’re too emotional for a boy’. What’s that supposed to mean?, he feels things too. Let him express his emotions how he sees fit.
Believe it or not, men also suffer from gender appropriation. A man is supposed to be strong and manly, what exactly does that word manly mean?. Did God give a guideline of manliness to Adam after creation. “thou shalt not wear pink?” or “thou shalt pay the bill everytime”. I didn’t read anything like that in my Bible.
Let’s not be hypocritical please, if we’re going to fight for the liberation of women from societal norms. Then we have to be fair and also liberate these men from the chains we’ve put them in with our expectations.
I have a lot of male friends and I have to say that the pressure on them is also unfair. I’m not shunning the struggle of women everywhere, I’m just saying that we should try to see things from their perspective once in a while. And maybe we should open car doors for them once in a while and take them out on romantic dates.
That said, I just want to talk about women that call themselves Kings. Baby girl what’s wrong with being a Queen?. Queen Esther in the Bible didn’t call herself a King and she saved an entire nation. You have just as much power as a Queen dear.
Until next time
