Is feminism a way to
change? While some wear the brand with pride, some shy away, not just
because they are happy to stay in their so-called place, but because of
the negative connotations, it carries. And however hard we try to
integrate the word into the society, it cannot shake off the stamp of
man-hater embedded deeply into its genesis.
Yes, women are fully
capable, independent, self-sufficient but they do need men in their
life. Being a feminist is not synonymous with being a man-hater. In
fact, women need them to complete their world. Sometimes for love and
sometimes for the sheer muscle power. Needing a man is natural and that
doesn't take away anything from a woman.
For so many centuries women
have been subjugated, against the natural order of life. And now hating
men is not going to restore the order. Won't a humanitarian approach be
more effective? To ring back a natural order of life, men need to be
treated with compassion as they too have deprived of being humans, not
allowed to get in touch with their emotions.
They aren't allowed to be humans but schooled to be these monsters who are encouraged to be cruel. But first act of cruelty happens with them when they aren't allowed to feel fear, love, empathy, all the emotions that make life beautiful.
has harmed men too along with women. Sometimes it's pitiful to see men
who are just incapable of even looking after themselves. The primates
could light a fire with stones and sticks and modern man cant light a
matchstick. Isn't that a tragedy? Most men are helpless and useless
while women are mostly strong and capable.
Time to have pity on humanity
and bring forth a wave of change in both the sex. It is not women’s
fight alone. Its a fight for humanity. Otherwise, we will have a spurt
of bachelor leaders like Yogi or Ramdev or misogynists like Trump taking
over the world.
That's not going to make the world a better place. Why waste our time or energy hating or putting down anyone. A victory would be when worlds natural of equality order is restored. Men and women together making the world a better place. And that's where Feminism would be an approach followed by men and women.
