I don't understand why...


Its ok to smile and laugh when you are happy, but its a sure sign of weakness if you cry.

If a man is assertive and confident, he has a great personality while a confident and assertive woman is arrogant and aggressive.

If a man prioritizes his family over everything else, he is a family man while a woman is unprofessional and makes excuses.

If a woman has a career and even remotely ambitious, she is running after money.

If women chat up, its gossip, while the men are having an intellectual conversation.

When the woman takes up a job, it is only expected that she support the family when the standard of living is so high while the man helps out a bit at home, he is nothing less than a martyr or hero!

If a man gets promoted, he is capable and deserving while the woman surely must be having an affair with her boss or flirts too much to get there.

Disclaimer: The above observations are not reflective of my personal life but just a few things I have noticed happening in and around me, some of them with me too!! I am also not a woman's libber or anything, I just find that this is absolute discrimination.

:-) I am sure most women agree coz all of us are judged about something or the other. I wonder when people will start looking beyond the gender...

Just call me 'A' said...

neither do I. But again i don't understand so many other things...like why women fast for their husbands and why widows wear white saris and why it is expected of women and children to take on a husband's/father's name and not vice versa.
it's a society created thing..and many go along...but there will be changes...small one..like for instance...it is not so unmanly anymore for men to cry. men who do cry are believe to be able to emphatize more! :D

I do feel what you have said is correct. However where I feel pity is even the women involve in such things happening with another women. And also not everyone is like this, though in India it is more...

Hey A,
I totally agree...I do know why certain things you have mentioned are practiced, but has drastically reduced now, especially in urban areas...I don't have much visibility about the rural areas.
