Feminism. It's a myth for a lot of people.
A gazillions of why's and what's have been aroused for this topic. I used to avoid it as much as possible because it's been assumed as a topic for adults, not suitable for people under 18. But the question is that, why not?
According to Google, feminism is the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men. This simple looking definition, does have a lot of extensive influence. When both men and women are entitled their rights equally, why it doesn't actually happen in our overly modern world?
In the past few years, I've learned about the destructive nature of injustice. It's like a time bomb you're willingly planting without knowing the consequences. It does get activated, without letting you know, and the damage done by it can't be avoided. For me, Feminism appeared to be the bittersweet product of injustice. It's in the nature of human beings to seek a refuge under a platform. No matter which sort of problem is that. So under the flag of feminism, the injustice of patriarchy & male dominance was supposed to get diminished.
M Y P E R S O N A L V I E W S :I am not out in the professional world yet, I don't know how things work in executive offices, but I do know about the lack of equality found there, already. I would be pretty devastated if I were rejected for a job just because my opponent was chosen on the gender basis. But, I am also sure how a dude would get angry on being rejected if I were chosen on the same basis.
A lot of people facetiously claim how feminists want to kill all the men and rule the world. Excuse me, I find it pretty offensive. It's like, you're challenging the balance forces that actually rule the world (as it's described by philosophy) and normality of a certain foundation.
Am I a feminist? Yes.
Why? Because :
1. I don't want to oppress my voice against the typical social injustice.
2. I don't want gender discrimination.
3. I would like to see more empowered women in my society. If I am one, it might inspire some of them to actually work on themselves.
It's no longer a taboo to discuss it. I'm getting pretty open about sharing my nearly conflicted views, prudently. There must be a lot of things I need to learn along the way and I am hoping to work on that. Human rights have always been a priority for me. I am not always able to help others, but whenever I can, I don't back off.
I'd like to know everybody's opinion on feminism. Whether you're one or not. What matters the most, is your outlook on the subject.
