Sexism has been ingrained in our culture.
While there have been many strides made since the dawn of feminism, we are still not close to being done by the looks of it. Some people might say women already have equal rights but that cannot be further from the truth. From women still being afraid when they go out alone for a walk to guys not understanding when they are making someone uncomfortable, there are so many things still wrong with our society.
And Twitter is a place where people don’t take this sort of bull. And these people have risen up and made statements about things that somehow seem normal to many women. Like ‘boys just being boys’ when they leer at someone or take it further and think a woman is supposed to serve them and be at their beck and call. This may seem like an exaggeration or like I am describing the past but it still happens and we need to talk about it.
Even if it may be in the form of jokes.
#1 Men who want a woman to ‘fix them’ should learn to be better.
#2 If she is saying no, does it matter if she is in a relationship?
#3 They will just wave it away by saying women have more self-control or something.
#4 That is one way to avoid feeling lust.
#5 Do men not realize they are exposing themselves?
#6 Kids are hard to take care of no matter their gender.
#7 This is not only decreasing the levity of the situation but also taking away a guy’s autonomy.
#8 This is sadly very true.
#9 And then they run away when the woman gets pregnant just because they didn’t want to use a condom.
#10 Why are women supposed to handle a man’s immaturity?
And this is not just towards men. There are many women as well who are just as much a detriment to feminism. We all have unconscious bias that we have learned from our surroundings as we are brought up and it is very hard to break from that.
#11 Everyone should know how to do these basic things.
#12 I never understand how this is anyone’s business.
#13 an 11-year-old is not a grown-up just because they have started their period.
#14 I think she forgot to put the ‘Well, actually’ before that statement.
#15 This may be a revelation for man but women don’t usually dress up for guys.
#16 Sadly this is the truth for many women.
#17 Is being careful worse than what women feel?
#18 Being gay is obviously worse because it goes against their toxic ‘views’.
#19 Yes, every woman.
#20 It does happen to men, we never said it doesn’t.
