few years ago my family was spending a day at a hotel.i was during the school holidays,and there were many young boys and girls taking a days off with their families.
there was a one boy in particular whom i found interesting .
i was leave the restaurant after lunch i saw him making his way down the corridor towards me.
suddenly he jumped for the door and held it open.beaming as i approached. i walked up to the door and stopped and i looked him directly with a strange expression
on my face.
"what are you doing i asked..."holding a door for you"..he replied..thrilled to be actually talking with him....''for me'' i asked.'' yes" he replied.
what makes you think that i cant open the door for my self"? i am a girl..not handicapped ..i told him...
"silly girl,"he laughed."so u dont mind if man opens the door for u"....he asked."of course not" i replied...and walked.he followed me....i feel faltered
"so i opened the door for you.you wouldn't think that i open the door for u just because you were woman assuming that you were weak to do it your self?
he looked at me.."of course you opened the door for me because i was a woman.but tats alright-you wouldn't take a man date or out of candle light dinner would you?i continues for assuming that i too weak to open the door for myself-dont worry,ill give some credit to your intelligence":happie:
"so your a not feminist,he asked..."i'm not a feminist i replied
,i guess; i am what u could call feminine feminist."now here was a clear-as-mud definition if i had ever heard one.
"A feminine feminist?" yes i am a woman and i am a proud of it. i am believe that i am equal to or better than any man.but i believe that man and woman are different and should not be compared. your different from me and i am different from you-tats what makes life interesting.
continued..."so you dont resent the traditional gender roles associated with woman like 'mother' and 'housewife'?slightly dodged the question.":wink:
"woman be come mothers because only they can.men cant become mothers even if they wanted to" i continued."as for house wife-about nothing degrading about being one.its a 24-hour job and more mentally and physically draining than almost any other job in the world.but then there's job satisfaction:would i give up having children,would i give up seeing my children's first step and hearing their first words just to have a career?
i dont believe that a woman can have both,when you opt for one you always risk the other".he was surprised and continued..
"i always just assumed that every woman was a feminist-if not on the surface,then below.but i don't see why woman feel the need to prove themselves in careers..i just don't want feminism telling me that id be betraying woman by being a housewife.my mother and grand mother are house wives.
no body going to tell me that they are any less woman because they never had careers that would just be qualifying that the jobs men do at work are more important than those that woman do at home".he continued...so what need is for society to acknowledge that my contribution is as or more important than yours.
feminism could be a means to achieve this. but unfortunately many woman seems to regard feminism as an end in itself."i shocked... i had many questions...and i said..
my aunt is waiting for me..i should go now...and i left the place...
