All my life, I,ve been told and taught that girls are dependent on boys. At the childhood days, girls are considered to be dependent on boys in the form of her father, brother, etc. When she grow up and get married, she is considered to depend on her husband. The word “Dependent” always keeps hunting girls throughout her life. Are she really born to stay dependent on others ? or its a way to keep the dominance of Men,s community. Perhaps, being a boy i am overly independent and my views may make boys feel bad. Whenever i see girls acting weakly and whiny, i get annoyed . Why we consider a girl as weak gender and that too in a culture where we pray goddess Durga as a “sign” of strength. I’ve met girls that make their male friends carry their objects because “it’s too heavy”, asking friends for favors in their ‘cute’ baby voices in every manual aspect without even lifting a finger to see if they themselves can manage it.
This perception among girls will only generate a sense of her weakness in society. So, this must be stooped from the bottom level. Men and Women are equal -enough said. Women can do practically everything men can do, and it’s sexist and chauvinistic to think otherwise. Women should in no way have to serve men, and men should in no way have to serve women. It should be a partnership between both genders. Girls, let me tell you. Being a girl does not give you excuse to ask everyone to do everything for you. And men should also get it clear that girls are not meant to be a servant for men or boys. In an era, when girls can fly to moon, then how the men society can even think that they are dependable on boys or men. There is literally no evidence to support this idea that men are superior to women. It is an outdated way of thinking from when people used intelligent design to justify misogyny. Girls are just as capable of every job a boy can do. And there are a few things girl can do that boy cannot, such as have children, which is the thing that keeps our species going and somehow we are supposed to accept that we are not the equals of men. I am not going to be cynic here and say that the world is filled with terrible people. But I will be realistic and say that if you choose to depict yourself as a fragile individual that cannot protect yourself, then you cannot expect others not to take advantage of it. So, boys or men should delete such things from there memory that girls are born to serve them or they are dependent to them but girls should also try to know her strength and stop giving boys a chance to dominate them in terms of strength. Being a male author, i am not against independence but only against dependence.
