Mistaken Feminism

Feminism is a flagging matter being taken into consideration by so many people around the globe. Every now and then, we encounter feminists coming up with wonderful writings, poems and what not. This concept has indeed been a boon and given women a significant recognition all around. It has shown women a path to walk, to travel.

But it is equally unconvincing to see the budding scenario of so called *netizens* considering themselves as feminists. People on social networking sites are coming up with blogs for women’s respect, self respect and hence exaggerating feminism. I guess many of us are not convinced with this term or maybe couldn’t distinguish. See, just being an opinionated person does not make you a feminist. I have my opinions but I am not a voice for women all around the world. I am a voice for myself. Please do not exercise alterations. #Feminist, #WomanWithThoughts on Instagram does not make you a feminist, as I said. Also, it has nothing to do with *freemale life* which is often interpreted as an independent woman being mislead as single and unmarried. Independence comes when you express yourself and needs no validation or dependence on others. It has nothing to do with your marital status. Knowing the value of feminism and exercising it in right direction is need of the hour afterall it has something even more to do than a designation and anti-male captions.

I believe every woman is a feminist inside, provided she knows her worth and strength. If she knows how to fight for justice. If she knows what it takes to erradicate women related stigmas.

I am a girl and a women to be. I experience weakness inside me when someone says “Get up! Let her sit. She’s a girl” or maybe like ” Don’t carry such heavy bags!” Why? Am I weak enough to lend my seat to a man? Or am I weak enough to carry a bag? No. So I have problem with such type of wrongly interpreted feminism where these stereotypical reservation and thoughts prove to be a weakness rather than my respect. I am equivalent to a man because why not? A man can never overpower a woman or “vice versa” because before a man and before a woman, we are humans. And humans are homogeneous species, right? But the ongoing feminism is rather overpowering the word woman I suppose.

I believe a man and a woman should only be segregated on the basis of testes and ovaries because other than that, what’s different? I mean if a woman gives birth to a child, a man raises him by own which is equally painful. If a woman becomes a mother, a man becomes a father and if a woman becomes a wife, a man becomes a husband.
