The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, “It’s a girl.” ~Shirley Chisholm
It seems as if in society women are being subjected to what men think. Either they are too emotional, unstable, or needy and are co-dependent on men. If women are independent or don’t need any men then they are seen as lesbian or too butch to get anything done. What bothers me, especially in the different text women who are in love or want to hold out for true love, they are seen as too romantic and live in a dream world. It makes me sick and above all disappointed. Would you like to know why?
For the past weeks in October, the government has been shut down because one side (Republicans) believed that the president and Democrats were destroying our constitution. I saw one of those e-cards (You know the ones where people write funny messages on funny looking cards) and it said, “Next time you accuse a woman of overreacting remember that a bunch of men shut down the government because they weren’t getting their way.” I thought the e-card was hilarious and reposted it on my face book page. Man, all the backlash that followed. Nicole how can you post that? That’s wrong. Women are in government too! I think this government has made people lose their form of amusement. Laugh a little. They are trying to make light a serious situation and I think it was a clever card. And I actually agreed with the card. They call women hormonal? And don’t get me started on being a feminist. Anyways, I’m glad that the government reached some semblance of agreement and I hope that it helps some people.
One thought on “Reaching A Deal-ish…”
A lot of truth in your post. In MY society, women aren’t only subject to what men think. Women are subject to what society thinks. It’s really unfortunate, but I have grown up in a society where both men AND women form and enforce the erroneous opinion that a woman is less than a man in a lot of regards. It’s sad.
