This is the 21st century. Still we, women have been fighting for our rightful share in this society. This irritates us to the core. Let me put forth for the readers, what is which exactly irritates us. We are expected us to compete equally with the boys in every field, expected to marry the person of our parents choice and expected to carry the motherhood without any complaints and give birth to at least one male child, because if so….who are expected to carry on the family name. The girl is worthy to be called a daughter , a sister , a wife , a mother but the family name …….nooooooooo. The mentality of the boys we girls married in this generation , is leading to constant suffering with the most conflicting thoughts , because they were raised by partially independent mothers.They expect their beloved sons not be helpful to their daughter in laws. This generation boys are going to be great fathers because they are probably the first ones in a really long time looking for spending some quality time with their kids …..but spending time with their partners seems somewhat of a waste of time and degrading. The women on the other hand are raised to be independent , to do the things their own way and not to depend on one but themselves. This is creating conflicting thoughts when it comes to balancing the life. They are being criticized if they pay too much attention at their carriers . They are being Criticized if they are being a homemaker and being labeled as someone with no carrier and earning of their own . They are being criticized if they want to have children and even if they want to delay the kids . And only god knows how much of wrath they face if they decide they don’t want to have kids . As if the only meaningful thing in a women’s life is procreation . They are being criticized if they want to leave their infant kid home and go to work , whether it is with a family member or a creche . I’ve even seen women being criticized if they want to one kid or 2 or 3 . What I don’t get is that everyone criticizes for thing where a man also has equal contribution for the produce …..but only a women is held responsible and projected as a means for solutions. Why is that ??? . In this generation if any women has a boy child……they should know that they are not only raising a good man , a responsible citizens….but also a need to bear in mind about their son being a good husband, a good father too. Enough with gender defining roles. Enough with being called a girl/boy. Raise kids …..raise people……to be good….to be sensitive…..to be responsible….to be caring. Raise your daughters to be queens. Raise your boys to be worthy of a queen……This only can be done with being truthful to the kids….dealing sensitive topics in a meaningful way where they can not only know the answer but also not spoil their childhood. Raising kids in this generation is probably the hardest. Especially a boy , they should taught things against the principles of the deeply rooted patriarchy….one of the basic being a man is superior to a women , that a women is weak , that cannot complete a task without the guidance of a man and most important of all….that she needs HIS permission .The men however are the same. They sleep till past time. Rush to jobs , have fun time with friends, stay out late , drink and come home to expect hot food for their bellies. The working women however have to put up with all the crap both at home and at work. The women of the past generation were raised to be a submissive to man…and they were kind of okay with it. But now….the present generation have conflicting ideals which makes us, women of this generation suffer . This is a request to all the mothers of this generation raising the future boys to be responsible and please there is nothing wrong with boys being sensitive and helpful. The greatest achievement probably will be having a happy daughter in law, another women. So ladies…….let the future generation boys be an ideal human being. We can do this….we can achieve this. Cause we already established the fact that there is nothing out there that we can’t achieve….no carrier that we cannot have…….we became doctors , engineers , pilots , astronauts , scientists , drivers and homemakers……let us do the task of breaking the gender discrimination and pave path for a beautiful world.
