And here are some answers I disagree with.
(I am not linking – but this is an unedited quote. No offense to the writer. I have heard and read this hundreds of times before.)
‘They are confident to rub their shoulders against men’s in their professions but at the same time could easily sacrifice their career for a sweet secured family. They understand male ego, and never intend to have a status of a bread earner but always feel satiated by just being jam on that bread.”
#Don’t call such expectations ‘their’ choices.
Accept gracefully when their choices are more human than divine. That ego can chain you, why not take an unbiased look at these expectations?
And don’t use arguments like,
“It’s always been done that way 🙄
You must give up your dreams for mine.
Don’t forget you are divine!”
‘They are beautiful. All in all they are the most divine and miraculous creation of nature, and deserve and want only the best for themselves and their loved ones.”
There’s more to a woman than her beauty and err…’divinity’.
# Let everybody take their share of responsibility in wanting only the best for the loved ones.
#Accept that women are human. Like all humans they come in all shapes and sizes. Like all humans they lie, love, hate and have thoughts that are generally described as ‘impure’.
Being divine hasn’t helped women. (another unedited quote)
“Female foeticide is not supported by bharatiya samskriti, which actually worships feminine shakti. Kali devi, Durga devi, Saraswati devi, Shiva in Ardhanareeshwara form, Manasadevi, Lakshmi devi, all exemplify the greatest respect that bharatiya parampara gives to shakti.”
It’s easier being human.
‘Some want a domineering guy with an attitude and some want a simple sober one, but all want who could stand with them in kitchen when they cook. “Can’t you stand with me instead of watching football,” my gal used to say when we were together.’
#Do not claim to know what other people want or think, not even women.
“Clubbing, partying, flirting around, fagging, boozing, et al they want to experience, but unlike men, they mostly know their limits.”
Unlike the rest of the population, women who do not ‘know their limits’ in how they party, dress, dance, walk, talk, drink, work, love … they ask for it.
“They are born gorgeous, and always want to look their best.”
Would they remain equal citizens if they weren’t considered gorgeous?
“They are very sensitive and always needs an emotional support.”
Doesn’t everybody benefit from emotional support? Maybe they express it better? Maybe some of them need to get out and make friends who are not related to them through their spouse?
“However tough they might seem, they all are dolls inside.”
Are we talking about equal adult citizens here?
‘But the most important of all, women want utter respect and immense love.’
#A lot of women are content with respecting themselves. And if the society does not expect them to live to be ‘loved and married’, many may prefer to live happily, with or without it.
‘Trust by their partner is what women demand and fidelity for them is what they inherit.’
#Reminder : Women are humans. Such unrealistic expectations result in honor killing of women who do not ‘inherit’ fidelity. And many, many living with infidelity.
