Maternal privacy


Social media allows us to look at the intimate moments of everyone's lives, especially celebrities. Recently, many celebrity mothers and mothers who are simply on social media have drawn criticism for their choices in raising their children. Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen and Megan Fox are all mothers who have been attacked on social media for the way they raise their children. Do you believe social media is a platform for providing advice and criticism to mothers on these websites, or should they be left alone regardless of their parenting practices?

    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 .

    At the present day, an important issue in under-developed countries and developed countries alike is gender issues. Especially,in under-developed countries, there are many people who lack education, due to the political situation of their country, and thus believe traditional norms and customs, exacerbating the problem of gender discrimination. Many local organizations and international civil society organizations have been trying to change the community and social norms. However, there will be many people who won't change and can't change their mindsets. Some traditional norms are based on religions. In Myanmar, 60% of population is from the rural areas and approximately 50% believe in traditional norms and customs, increasing the problem of gender discrimination in Myanmar.  Thus, with increasing development, Myanmar needs to prepare now for new challenges that will have an impact on gender equality: economic integration, domestic and international migration, rapid urbanization, new information and communication technology, and population aging. I believe that feminism is the equality between men and women and the equal responsibilities and opportunities they must have.  Those are my opinions. I warmly welcome any comment and feedback!  Aung Myo Htun (Kelly)  Myanmar
