I advised a trigger warning to this post because I believe this topic isn’t typically talked about based off of my own daily conversations and personally hearing conversations or seeing conversations posted online by others in society. I feel that what I am about to discuss is very taboo and is only discussed by those who have come to find others who share the same beliefs.
With all of that being said, what I am going to discuss in this post is feminism and what would our society look like if we were to create and eventually implement and matriarchal society.
Just so that others understand my personal views so as not to label me a “man basher” or “woman hater” allow me to share with you my own personal experiences on what it is like to be treated as a female due to my physicality…
I enjoy being a woman (not to be smug, only to destroy the belief of others that I am feminist because I want to be a man). I love my body. I love the tone of my voice. I do not love being treated like a woman. You see, society has a way of dictating a woman’s behavior and looks. I do understand it is the same for men however, your dictation is not borderline cruel and (dare I say) unusual? With the physical appearance of being a woman, I and many others are told to remain silent, to not voice our opinions or speak our minds. We are definitely not trusted as easily as men are. We are shamed and told that we cannot have ambition. That going after our goals and dreams would be “irresponsible” and “shameful”. Women have to carry a burden of responsibilities and do so in silence in order to please men and other “brainwashed” women.
I believe that we can create a world where women are not constantly stood on. Where women can be trusted just as much as men can be. I believe that the first step would be to destroy the idea and plan of gender roles.
