The search for equality between men and women is fuelling a never ending war between genders. There are still doubts that women are not equal to men; even though people try to convince themselves otherwise, we are faced with day to day situations that prove that women are not equal to men. For example: working in a men’s environment, doing as you please with your sexuality and segregation by nature. Though most men have full respect for women, there is still a lot of conflict in the male perception of the real role a woman plays in our day to day lifestyle and if indeed we are equal.
As the teenager that I am, I’ve come to realize that women are not equal to men. As a woman, I’ve been segregated from the “roles” of what a woman should and should not do. Women convince themselves that we are equal to men, and when asked in what way we are, we explain ourselves by saying we can do all men do; we can be doctors, lawyers, and so on because these factors are equal or should be considered equal. But in fact we are not equal; there are certain roles a woman could not fit, such as working in construction, this is not the ideal profession for a “lady” and would definaetly be viewed negatively.
On a personal level I’ve had to deal with the inequalities of our genders. For example, a male with more than one girlfriend is viewed as a “player” and not with a negative connotation. On the other hand, a female with more than one male partner is viewed as a “slut” or a “whore”. This is a world wide subject that seems to get “better” as the years go by but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to have an end. I have seen several court cases where the husband is suing the wife for adultery when he in fact had done the same thing. Being the mother, society views it as its worst. Having said that it directly proves the point of how a woman’s perspective should be.
