Why aren’t women proud? Proud to be women?
Even the most hard boiled feminist seem somewhat discontented to be female. Women strive to be more like men, more aggressive, more independent, more career oriented, more sexually promiscuous, more emotionally cold. In general women have tried to adopt more and more of traditionally masculine traits. And to the deprivation of both men and women they have succeeded.
Women are wealthier, healthier and better educated than they were just 30 years ago. They’re more likely to work outside the home, and more likely to earn salaries comparable to men’s when they do. They can leave abusive marriages and sue sexist employers. But all these achievements may have delivered women to greater unhappiness. In a study women where more happy in the -60s than now.
Why do women try to be more like men or at least behave like men? It confuses me, all things masculine is toxic and bad in men but the same behavior in women is “Go girl!” But if these behaviors doesn’t make women more happy or content with their life what´s the point? Why try to change to a behavior pattern that makes you unhappy?
One of my wife´s friends got a shitload of angry comments on facebook when she posted “im proud to be a feminine woman”. To her I say GO GIRL! I don´t remember the context but her “friends” got really angry and gave her a really hard time.. We live in times when you get at least verbally abused when you are proud of being a man or woman!
I wrote about being proud to be a man.. but likewise:
We need more women that are proud to be feminine women!
