Celebrities truly have a lot of power, given to them by, us…the public. How interesting right. Thats the beauty of it all, why do we give them so much power? The power we bestow upon them again leaves us in a bad spot..doesn’t it?
Why do I mention this? Well, I was at a concert very recently and a very popular celebrity was asked to give out an award. Before she did she mentioned the gender equality organization that she was working with and the difference they were making in the world today. She then pointed at the men in the crowd and mentioned how men needed to “take care” of their ladies.
Now, the crowd was pumped up by her “empowering words,” but I was not.
WOMEN do not need anyone to take care of them. Why is this constantly advertised in everything we see. Here is the biggest reason why women don’t need anyone to take care of them:
- Are women not the ones to bear children? If women can bear children don’t you think they can handle themselves?
- Why does society not decide to take care of men? Are they not human-you know by human I mean two eyes, one nose, one mouth, etc..etc.. If looked at in that capacity, why the constant differentiation?
When those two words are brought up in a statement given by someone in relation to the women’s empowerment movement, I am again reminded, of how they are just stating what they “think” is appropriate to say in this society.
Hello ladies, I am sure you are already aware of this, but how do you feel when someone states the need to “take care” of you?
Have an amazing day ahead,
