EQUALITY

Society doesn't look at women equally, being a woman is degrading, and that is completely incorrect.


Feminism is a topic that I take very seriously, I am strongly committed to helping one person at a time see that everyone is equal. You're a human and deserve to be respected, and not judged based on your sex. Being a male and fighting for equality is quite difficult because I don't understand the struggles a woman faces on a day to day basis because I am in fact, not a woman. However, that doesn't mean that I am completely blind to the situation - I can still notice what is right and what is wrong.

Where sexism is expressed the most in, is clothing - what is wrong with men wearing women's clothing? It's just clothing, you should have the right to express yourself however you'd like to. You see, there is nothing wrong with a woman wearing men's clothing, but the world stops when a man wears a woman's top. What is the difference? Society doesn't look at women equally, being a woman is degrading, and that is completely incorrect. Women are just as capable as men. It is easy being a man, that's why they don't take time to care for someone else's feelings, their logic is, "Why change a system that benefits me?".

You need to understand that telling a girl what she can or can't wear based on what distracts boys is just sending a message to a developing woman that she is not worth as much as the boy next to her and she must not disrupt his education.

It's not so much about the clothes you wear - if you do your nails - it's about noticing that these issues exist, just because it is 2015 (literally, almost 2016, isn't that crazy) doesn't mean that these issues magically disappeared and everyone is valued the same because the truth is we're not, according to society. Equality doesn't matter to most people but this is a serious issue, sexism can lead to the point of rape and that is just unacceptable. Educate yourself today.
