Make of this world a better place to live.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A HUMAN NOT A GENDER.
In our school, we usually maintain many discussion about different topics, one of the latest one I was holding with one of my mates was about gender differences and I would like to speak out my mind and show my own analysis.
Hope it will bring some inspiration, controversy, agreement, and disagreement. I think we all learn and grow from our differences, we get a broader picture from other´s points of view, so let bring some discussions.
Many times I got myself involve in discussions about gender, about men and women being different and I wonder in which sense and which different skill do we have, because in my mind the only thing women or men cannot do as the opposite gender is to produce testosterone or progesterone (and anything related to that), otherwise I wouldn’t dare to talk about gender but about people.
There are small men with a great sensitivity or creativity or whatever; at the same time, there are big strong women with a practical, handy and orientation’s skills, and you know what, I even “hate” myself for writing such a thing, because by doing so I’m involving myself in certain stereotypes I don’t believe but I that I need to assume in order to explain myself.
I think we are indeed different, we have as many differences as people living in this world, but they do not match with gender but with physical conditions, education, personality, and many other circumstances.
Sometimes I been so call to be too masculine to be a girl, also I´ve been told to fulfill my role property, and you know I wonder what all of this mean, I´m me and I´m unique just like everybody else. We must be aware about our skill and conditions, not what we got in between our legs.
There are feminist movement fighting for “women rights” and at the same time I found many girls perpetuating machismo by saying, for instance, we need men power instead of strong people who can lift that. I feel sorry for some men not being men at all, and I feel sorry for women who want to have advantages over man just because of being women. I do believe in equity,
I believe in differences and I believe we complement each other so good that we can just benefit from it.
When we talk about physical constitution I feel like talking about prehistoric time, the body is wise, evolution is wise and that evolve according to our needs. Our life style will ultimately define our future constitution.
I have seen women in Africa carrying kgs of water in their heads plus a kid in their backand another in their chest, I have witness handy women fixing all kind of technology, from a car to a computer, I have seen people finding out new ways of carrying something too heavy for them, but being enough creative to get done and overcome any challenge they have to face.
Today I want people to be more human, to consider a differe
nt point of view, to understand that thousand years hunting huge bests have its impact and consequences, but that the same appeal to sedentarism where people do not longer use their strength or physical skill rather than working out in the gym or developing a relatively “hard work” perfectly suitable for certain “women” as for certain “men”; where people´s get their car to go to the next corner.
For me feminism and machismo do not have further foundation than the prehistoric times.
Bet you would have a lot to say, so we will be waiting for you, any opinion is welcome and needed to make of this world a better place to live.
