Some question kept bouncing in my head whenever I witness certain specific behavior of humans.
1) Can a male deliver a baby?
2) Can a man breastfeed a baby?
3) A woman is physically stronger than man?
4) A female voice is soft (generally)?
5) Why girls menstruate while boys don’t?
6) Mature boys have beards and mustache while girls don’t?
7) Women must not step out from home during nights?
8) Boys must be strong and not emotionally weak?
9) Girls like “Khatta edibles” while boys don’t?
10) All men are dogs and all women are very honest?
11) Boys are ambassadors for abusing while girls must not?
12) A boy must be a stud while girls must be calm, quiet and serene?
13) Boys must be intelligent while girls must look beautiful?
Assuming, you are a rational being (I must assume. If you were not, I might not be asking these questions), I am predicting your answers to these questions.
Your answer to first 2 questions must be NO. For questions from 3-6, your answer must be YES. For the remaining questions (7 - 13) your answer might vary based on your PRE CONCEIVED-NOTIONS.
Well, next question which came in my mind is,Who created these differences? Nature or Humans? First 6 answers are based on Nature, i.e. the creation of human beings by GOD. But what about the rest?
I can give several examples but that’s certainly not what I want to convey. Did your GOD ask you before sending you into this world, ‘Hey what sex you want?’ My GOD doesn’t.
The rest 7 answers are based on what human tendencies, which the society has gifted us. The answers to the rest of the questions were supposed to be addressed by us based on our conscience and rationality, not what this society has forced to believe us.
Coming to the 13th question. If the notion was followed religiously, women conditions must have been worse in India. (Thank god, some exceptions exist like SUNITA WILLIAMS, CHANDA KOCHHAR, KALPANA CHAWLA, PRATIBHA PATIL, etc.)
Which holy book says that being intelligent is the trait of boys? (They must choose whether they want to be intelligent or not.) And that girls must look beautiful? (It is something that is natural)
What if a man or woman chooses not to do so? Will there be a natural disaster?
I mean look at the latent difference created by our society very shrewdly. The damn fucking shit is we follow it. And then we call ourselves educated?
Do you know who are the gainers of these belief imposed on us? Businesses.
Businesses have understood, people who were gifted with brains have forgotten to use them.’ Consequently, they come up with their advertisements like, “Why, should boys have all the fun?”, “SADA sexy raho man”, “Khoob jamega rang jab, mil baithenge teen yaar”, etc.
Noticed how their tagline attracts customers to be sexy, stud, macho man by using their product? It is shown to be mandatory to have bagpiper if you want to enjoy with your pals.
It is a level up thing if you are a girl and you drive a pep+ scooty. This kind of advertisements, where creativity and innovation are based on our pre-conceived notion, is a result of profound contemplation.
If you can understand the pseudo notions of society, then think over them. Your ability to abuse, study, partying or being intelligent must refuse to accept them. You are truly educated only if you follow your intuitions. These might not fit the society’s expectation about gender.
Remember, “GOD created sex, but man created gender”. Don’t fall in gender trap and take pride in your sex (Male or Female). It is the natures’ gift to you.
