Taking away a seat reserved for others in the name of feminism is not gender equality
It feels great when you shout out bigger names like ‘feminism’, ‘gender equality‘, ‘women rights’ and so on in the series. But, have you ever thought if we really know their meanings? Or do we really know how all this applies in practical world? Some women do while some don’t.
This is a story shared by a guy who felt such a pain in the name of women equality.
He discusses his own emotions and traumas that he felt, which many people might misunderstand as being a story that creates hatred among women. Indeed he is not trying to create any war against women but trying to let all of us understand the kind of pain and anger that he felt throughout those particular situations.
It’s time, that all of us and most particularly women, in general, try to learn through this story that he shared, which actually happens most of the time but we never realize it.
In fact, I’d like to thank this man who brought this issue before all of us. It’s not always about hating men or women, it’s about noticing wrong things that happen near us irrespective of the gender. Let’s see what you and I missed, but this man has caught his eyes upon.
What exactly is Feminism?
If you go by the literal meaning of this term, Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish and achieve political, economic, personal, and social rights for women. This includes seeking to establish educational and professional opportunities for women that are equal to such opportunities for men. And in its definition, it is by no means connected to stealing others’ right.
giving away a handicap’s right, fair?
Whenever we travel, or we come across some places where the authority already allocates a particular area to specific people, then why does it always go in vain? For example, in a train or a bus when a seat is allotted for a particular section of the society like senior citizen or a handicapped, it sometimes is taken by the women in the name of ‘women rights’. Why?
Taking away the rights of senior citizens!
This is what Rakesh Prasad has captured!
Can you see what this picture is trying to convey? A woman has taken a seat, and an amputee or a physically disabled person is sitting on the ground.
He shares the following post about this particular issue.
Rakesh saw something weird in the train and not only did he noticed things around him but he also gave a thought to it.
