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..

Sorry but this one going to be a bitter pill for South Asians. So, take it with a grain of salt.Growing up in Pakistan, I have always felt irritated about the "so called grace rules developed in the whole of South Asia" If you're a man, you may find this read useless because these rules don't affect you. I don't need to say anything about these rules, just have a look and decide yourself : Women have no right to speak against Men. Husbands are always superior to Wives. Women have to feel sorry even if they don't a thing. If some sexual harassment/violence happens, it's because the women wants it. Women can't do jobs because they were made to stay in homes. Girls can't get education because they are responsible for homes. Being a women, you shouldn't ask for divorce. If I go on the list is long...... So, lets stop here and discuss the issue. A major part of this issue is the Religion . Most of the South Asian population have developed the thinking that God/Allah/Bhagwaan made Men superior. Firstly, there's no religion in this world who gives such a lame statement. Even if there is, it can never be a true religion. Now, I am going to state the exact verses from your holy books/religious teachings for you below. Teachings of Hinduism here . Muslims teachings here . Buddhism teachings here . If you agree with the RESPECT these religions give to women, please share the message with others to save our future generations from this curse ! I don't mean to be rude but we all need to remove all these misconceptions to make world a better place to live, a place where everyone is treated with respect, respect, and equal respect .
