Feminism

Feminism is defined as:
ˈfeməˌnizəm/
noun
the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

I do not like to label myself, but in our society, not only I, but the entire female gender is, or should be considered  a feminist, necessitated by the presence of the patriarchal dominance.

Equality between man and woman does not mean ignoring our traits and eliminating our gender roles. It means eliminating the superiority of one gender over the other. It means perceiving a person as whole and complete without reference to gender.

It is not too outrageous to consider that patriarchy came about from man’s feelings of inferiority to woman, from a biological standpoint, the ability to bear children. But just because we are designed to bear children and propagate the human race, does not make us superior to man in any-way. Man and woman are both necessary for the act of creation. We are both equally important.

So, evolving beyond this segregated mindset is easy if we practice Respect. Respect for all living beings, for who and what they are. A woman might be physically stronger and faster than a man. A man may be more feminine than a woman. To each his/her own. We only need to look with a whole and complete mindset, and respect.

We are a civilization. It is time we evolved beyond our barbaric thought patterns.
