I have usually seen in social medias people saying that women can be whatever they want : fat, skinny, curvy, with or without lots of makeup etc. I like it how they protect women who are being offended or slut shamed by men or other women. But when it comes to men nobody ever says that they can be whatever they want. Women want to be accepted with all their flaws but they are not willing to accept someone which in their judgement may be "flawed". They set up standards for men, like they have to be very tall,muscular, have lots of money and be patient while their girlfriends show attitude etc. If we want to be accepted in every situation that we are, we have to accept others too. Lots of women that I know put pressure on their boyfriends to buy them makeup or clothes, or to pay for everything that they get, claiming that they deserve it. What I want to say is that, sometimes it's not just us who are being discriminated, but so can be them. So if we call ourselves feminists we have to protect gender equality and not only women..
