time’s-a-changin’

i read an interesting article on equality today. the main theme being the idea that the sex of a child can be chosen before conception. an idea that had feminists spewing because the study favoured the success rate, and preference, of producing boys over girls. that was in the 70s.

today, we may think equality means actually becoming equal with our male counterparts. however, it seems women are fighting feminism to an even greater extent. feminism should be replaced, perhaps more fairly, with “equalism”, where people value the rights of people and gender is wholly removed from all consideration. 

in an interview with playboy, john mayer commented on these changing times. he said:

I hear about man-whores more than I hear about whores. When women are whorish, they’re owning their sexuality. When men are whorish, they’re disgusting beasts. I think [women are] paying [men] back for a double standard that’s lasted for a hundred years.” 

what a juxtaposition. commenting on this issue in a magazine such as playboy. but, he’s right. feminism seems to have flipped. it’s now all about power to the women, yet we’re forgetting our own standards. where does this feminist movement stop? feminism is about women achieving greater rights throughout all facets of society and should not be about women holding power over men. it should be about equality and the ability to do as you please and still be accepted by society, without judgment or ridicule from men, or women for that matter. now the envelope is being pushed. but it’s being pushed too far. start welcoming equality.

there isn’t much else to be said on the meaning of the word. women are gaining more power and respect, but don’t let it be about becoming the most powerful. it should be about respecting each other and demanding respect from those around you. and this can only be gained by respecting yourself. feminism has always been two steps forward, one step back. it’s time that stopped. maintain your morals and adjust your attitude.

don’t be the one to let the sisterhood down.
