Happy Women’s Day – A wake-up call for Men

Even in the age of equality in the free liberal world, I feel offended when women go out and celebrate women’s day, a deliberate attempt to mock man the inferior gender of the human species. We men know that we are not perfect but please do not subject us to humiliation in every walk of life.

Growing up I was taught that all humans are equal, if that’s the case why women are given special treatment? Every single stage of my life I felt or was made felt inferior to women.

I felt inferior when my Mom convinced my sister to sacrifice choices when there was room for only one to grow. Why do women perceive that only they can be better at that?

I felt ashamed when my sisters (cousins) showered me with compassion even though I was the perpetrator.  Why wasn’t I taught the correct lesson?

I feel discriminated at my work, when my caring equal opportunity employer gives me 20% more pay over my fellow female co-workers. Reason, it’s believed that women more efficient in managing with minimal means. Why can’t the playing field be leveled & give us an equal chance? We may struggle initially but surely we’ll find a way to manage.

I hope one day we will gain enough strength to can re-write the popular phrase “Behind every successful woman, there is a man”

I am looking forward to a time when woman will not mock us by celebrating a day, instead we will be given a chance to celebrate a Men’s day (A day when it will be allowed to leave toilet seat up)

    Being feminist, celebrating women’s day or demanding the 33% in India are all a sign of succumbing to the social stigma that man n women are different. I had a big discussion on this topic on 8th at my work where girls love the attention and speciality treatment!

      When the population is more than 48% why settle for 33%? :) Serious given an equal opportunity to groom (at home & in society) women can acheive almost anything without asking for a special quota. The change needs to come from home. I hope your progressive thoughts helps you make a difference.

  5. LOL. A fun take on the gender inequalities. Thanks Yatin. :)

    Very good point. I like how Men’s Day should include letting men leave the toilet seat up. Hehe :)

    I like this – a different take on Woman’s Day! I don’t and won’t celebrate it until female infanticide / feticide ends or at least reduces.

  10. LOL. Thanks for a new twist on things. Especially the pay differential. ;)
