Very recently a Pakistani rishta aunty named Mrs Khan came & out & had a word or other say about a modern day “feminist” not knowing the entire meaning of one. The interview was boiling my blood & im glad that so many women spoke out against her because that’s what she deserved.
Dear Mrs Khan & co (referring to all the misogynists out there scared on the name of a feminist) first of all, im sorry that something as normal as an opinion from a woman can shatter your ego, im sorry that you cannot hear the word “no” because you’ve said to be a man & do as you please when you please, im sorry that you’re told that you can’t show emotions because that’s not “manly” & other false narratives that our society has build up when it comes to “manliness”
Listening to a female & having a healthy debate with her will not make you less of a man, rejection does not hurt your self-respect, crying & asking for forgiveness because you were wrong does not make you less of a man. If anything, it takes more guts & makes you twice the man!! I’ve grown in between men, be it friends or family. My father for one & many many of my friends make me proud & want to respect the gender itself. Please try to understand that feminism is not that i dont want to cook food or take care of you because oOh i iZ a fEmIniSt Its not oh my god i wont make roti for my husband & let my kids die of hunger its im not obliged to make roti, because what if im sick/pregnant or not capable of at a certain point. Feminism is, we can distribute the work. I can do his work, if needed & he can do mine. No sort of work is allocated to any sort of gender. Hazrat SAW (PBUH) & Hazrat Khadijah are a classic example to our modern day misogynist who thinks its necessary for a woman to make roti ONLY if not it’s rightful to “hit” them. Why not speak against this aunty?
Don’t pass remarks on feminism when you don’t know what it truly stands for! Men & women are physiologically different, a feminist is not asking to be the same either! We dont want to be the same trust me, i dont wanna punch a man bro. Im just saying, if a man can be a CEO so can i as a woman. Men or women arent bad, human beings are. Love & peace! x
