Monday Moaning Unisex World
The title is assuming some kind of equality within the word we live in. Last week I talked about Modern Slavery and who women within the corporate world are still considered the lesser of two. And with two, you know I mean between men and women. The corporate world is just a tip of an iceberg the cherry on some whipped cream.
For centuries the world we know has been developed and created according to men and the corporations is a a good mirror of that. But there is more going on here on this tiny planet we call home. Like a garden there are the smaller critters roaming around as well. There are women, children and boys and some men, obeying the law and rules as they were set by men years ago.
Establishing that men set the rules might be farfetched but it may be close to the truth. It hasn’t been for what, almost 200 years that women finally gained some voting rights and it is since about 30 years women finally can be at the top of a business. There is that rumour of a lady being taken from the bible scriptures, by rulers of a church who were and still are men. Laws created were done by kings by most occasions. There are exceptions of Queens and women but they are but a few as they were mostly seen as the one to bring forth an heir.
Throughout time woman have been the underdog.
It was men raging war setting rules of engagement and women were pretty much just the victims of it, and getting the worst end of the deal by being raped and things like that.
In sports, though maybe more civilized, its men who had set the rules and have those wars like games. Maybe it was some way to make war less painful for them.
So it’s only recently that women can make a career from work, it is only recently that woman have some say in what is going on in their very own country. Hat said there still is a difference between what countries, as some countries still do not like to acknowledge women as capable as men.
This is but all very political and shows how well placed and established men are within those grounds. Making it still hard for women to even get there and be placed in higher ranks.
Further down we find the people who see all this going on but have very little say other than choosing a party that sounds like the right choice. Noticed what I done here?
Women do make rules these days and get laws approved by lobbying a lot. Though if one looks closer it is not for women they stand up, it is for their offspring, the children. Like banning books and getting age approval on video games and films. Though I can agree with their reasoning it is up to parents to be more involved with the upbringing of their children. And this is where we kind of hit a wall. And see once again, two opposing forces and the dividing of gender.
And I am not going into age ranges here.
For boys it is okay to go out late, women need to be home at a certain time and never alone, and not a boyfriend either. Sounds familiar?
Boys can watch porn as for girls should not.
Boys get patched up because scars are cool. The ladies can never ride a bike again.
It is okay for boy to play games for older girls should just stick to playing with dolls.
Baseball is for boys while girls should do ballet
These are just simple examples of how we deal with our children and dividing gender in the process.
It does not stop there as TV has become a big impact of how we see life and perceive gender. Video clips and lyrics that say it is okay for men to just get a hold of women. But soon as it happens the other way around a man’s rule come into play.
Man having lots of woman is cool and makes him a hero.
Women having lots of men is a slut or pretty much lowest of low.
Who ever made said that is pretty much not aware it is still being used today.
What gives men a right to treat women like that and get away with that? Should we not teach respect and get some sense in those little brains. What about all those dads who were brought up that way and teaching their boys the same and because what they know hold back their daughters afraid of what might happen to them since you cannot trust boys.
Isn’t that a clue to change how we bring up our children? Or is this me being a dumb ass?
Two weeks ago I read a true story from a pretty lady, who is part of the LGBT community which led to this post in a way. It showed a guy forcing himself upon her by grabbing hold. This all happened in a Gay/Lesbian club no less. What was going through his dumbass mind to do such a thing? And to tell her she was a bitch or slut (will post link so you can read) when she pushed him away and saying NO in a shocked way. I know that I can go in that kind of club being straight but the least I can do is respect the other people present.
How come a guy can get away with that and have his friends laughing and finding him a hero.
Where do we start dividing gender and where can we start making a world more respectful.
It kind of shows it is still a man’s world out there and though Mr James Brown might is right it is nothing without a woman we men sure lack respect to the matter. Now this generalizing a lot of men and that I can understand and it is not my intention but do you as a man treat the children differently or do you also see the dangers that are called boys/men. It takes one to know one but when do we break through the so obvious old teachings.
Differences are always present but it is no excuse what so ever to box a person in a certain category. A world needs both men and women in all shapes and sizes, Equality it might just be a dream but it starts at home. I am but a hopeless romantic and a dreamer, liking to see a future with mutual respect to one and all.
Ps. I know this is about men and I am sure there is something to say about women. And we men would have been nowhere without the women.
