Being A Feminist

Feminism, there are many people who have told me that I am a feminist and I do not know why they adopt a teasing tone while telling me that sentence. Although, personally I am not at all ashamed of the title.
Yes! I am a feminist and I do not think there is anything wrong with it. I can’t witness racism between two people on the basis of their gender. I can’t stand the fact that women are actually locked up in their own houses. I can’t understand why men are never murdered in the name of honor and dignity. I don’t know why we have adopted the idea that women are worthless if they earn their living and try to be independent. If she leaves the house to earn? She gets called with such names and is given such titles that her life becomes a curse. Do you know her part of the story? Why is it okay for a boy to have female friends but the same boy wants to marry a girl who never communicated with other males. Why a man can raise his hand to women and show her how powerful he is. Why a woman is the only one who is asked to make compromises throughout her life.

But wait! this doesn’t mean I challenge the laws of nature. It doesn’t mean that a girl can stand out of her house at midnight and believe she won’t get harmed. Neither do I believe that it’s fun to hang around with boys under the name of friendship or do whatever comes to your mind without being logical once.
The point is, the two opposite genders were never made to compete with each other at first place. They were made to fulfill each other’s lackings. They were made to support each other.
Not to forget “women were created from the ribs of a man to be beside him, not from his head to top him, not from his feet to be trampled by him, but from under his arm to be protected by him, near to his heart to be loved by him”.
Hence being a feminist does not mean you have to stand out of the crowd thinking a woman can conquer the world alone, but people? please do not forget that she has a life and all rights to live it the way she wants to. Kindly, let her set her boundaries herself.

Somehow, the word ‘feminism’ is considered quite derogatory these days. Someone who is called a feminist, sometimes tends to get offended if called so, while some get away from a valid discussion by terming it as a feminist argument.
People fail to understand that the basic definition of feminism encourages equality, NOT partiality.

So well described. I agree! People don’t want to listen neither correct themselves. Which made the idea of feminism an argument. Hope my article made things clear.

It is an extremely serious issue these days. To save yourself, we have to be strong more than men. Not physically but mentally. If we unite, no man can ever harm us.

I agree! But people have adopted the idea that being a feminist means you need to compete a man and believe she can’t loose at all.
