There was a lot of discussion on feminism in the world. Many opinions don’t agree with the basic definition of feminism.
The basic definition of feminism is gender neutrality, irrespective of any gender everyone should have equal rights in everything.
It is okay when people do not know the meaning of any word, or can’t get it they get cranky and go gaga.
They can find the meanings in the dictionary or the Internet and change their opinion, but you know they are strong and will keep the same.
I was researching a lot on patriarchy and feminism for many days. In the past few days, I have been doing more, because I needed answers.
Why are few so-called “men” get trigger by the word feminism? The basic purpose of feminism is gender equality. Why are these people making a big dance on it?
So I got a few answers, let’s discuss them. Let us rely on data, because whether we like it or not data doesn’t lie.
It slaps you in the face with facts. India is the leading country with the most female foeticide cases.
They might come with an argument saying it was in the past, now its all glory and heavenly.
Why don’t we talk 2020 which was a month ago? In 2020, about 4.6 crore females ‘missing’ in India due to son preference: UNFPA report.
NCRB data shows that there is a 7% rise in crimes against women in 2020. These are the stats from by the government officials. The cases that don’t get any limelight are huge.
If we leave India and go to the international level, it the same and it gets worst going forward. Even in other countries, people have no clue on the same.
According to a recent report from WHO, one in three women is subjected to violence in one or the other form.
Sadly most of the women in the world don’t even know that they have basic rights. They still fall to the claws of patriarchy.
They come with statements like “A Women is Innocent until proven guilty, a man is guilty until proven innocent.” or “I think the men that stayed on the Titanic would love the idea of feminism.”
These are the most useless and ironical statements I’ve ever heard. The same patriarchy which these men follow said women are weak, they need protection, men are strong and can do anything.
And the same people come with the statement like women are innocent and why did women go first when Titanic sank. I mean it doesn’t make any sense.
This Patriarchy didn’t even leave the field of science. To put their research forward and get peer-reviewed, many of the female scientists had to put gender-neutral names, just so that their paper gets reviewed.
Women are not asking or don’t need any protection. The mindset of men who cling to patriarchy should change.
They are asking for the rights they already have which patriarchy took away. They don’t need any special rights.
The patriarchy has assaulted almost everything in men and women lives. It gave these so-called men an imaginary power to take control over everything.
Most of the men demand patriarchy as if it’s their birthright. They do all the reckless things to attain the same.
In the end, I want to conclude by saying, these so-called men, oppose feminism or hate it because they don’t know what that means.
I cannot stress this enough, but your inability to understand anything doesn’t make it a valid argument against it.
