This topic will be talking about women in general.
If you are easily offended about reading stuff about gender, please quietly hit the back button and not shout "STFU wimmen are sex objects!!!1111!!!!!!"
Yeah, since history, women didn't have so much rights. Look at the time of the Athenians, women didn't have the right to the democracy the Athenians had. Why didn't the Athenians let the women have rights, just like how the Spartans let women do stuff men do? That is why I would rather be Spartan than Athenian, I wouldn't dare to stay home like a dog and clean up the house.
Now look into China. Long time ago, there were female generals, and today, they are in a way the last female generals in armies. Then China made it that women are to be brides, and to be thrown away from the family when they are married.
Speaking of the culture of China, my father's side are Taiwanese. During the time my mother was pregnant, my father's side pressured her to have a baby boy rather than a baby boy, or just have twin boys or a male and female twin. Why? Because again, boys are valued more in China. But when I came out, fortunately, they accepted me as the Granddaughter, with no arguement.
Now when I speak of Japan, women could also be one thing: Ninjas! Not sure about other areas, so I need to talk to my mom. But anyways, on my Mother's side, the Japanese side, is a women dominated family. In our personal society, women are always at power, even when she loses her maiden name. That is why my Grandmother, although she has Alzheimer's, she is still the head of the family. Even if we, women of my Japanese side are superior in some way, we still respect each other no matter what. Here one instance which we still do obey each other:
My mother, when she was at my current age, 17, wanted to go to the USA to be an exchange student. My Grandmother, who was not the head during the time, agreed, but her husband disagreed. However, Grandmother's mother, my Great Grandmother, who is from the maiden family, still ordered my Grandfather to send my mother to the USA, and my Grandfather agrees, without any reluctance. This happened mostly because Great Grandmother is obviously older, but I am pretty sure the women being leaders thing also contributes to the factor.
Because my mother contributed more into teaching about my mother's side, this probably ended up raising me into that attitude to have women power no matter what...In a way.
All right, enough history lecture...
No. I believe that powers must be equal. Women and men can be presidents. Women and men should get equal payments, even in the porn industry (There is a massive unfair difference between wages for the well paid female and male.). And most importantly, a man and a woman should run together on the road; the man wearing no shirt, but running pants, and the woman wearing a bra top and short pants. In other words, women can dress sexy if she wants, like how the man can do the same if he wishes, both without any rape events, duh.
So that massive tl;dr, what does it mean? I am classified as a feminist (A person who rights for gender equality. Get your definitions straight bastards.)
and I not only fight for equality in gender, but equality in races, ages, countries, etc. No I am not a feminist. The word is just confusing. The word should be replaced with the word, "equalist". Equalist should be the correct word. It means someone who supports equality in every fucking single thing. That is me. Wanna be a ballet dancer, I don't give a fuck if you are a male or female, and no difference in wages. Wanna be a BL game/otome game character artist, same, I don't care if you are some perverted male who wants to try something new or a female who loves bishies.
But most of the time...
This isn't what is happening most of the time.
Like I mentioned earlier, the highly paid porn stars, female and male have a MASSIVE difference in wages, and I see it unfair. As a feminist who supports porn (No. I never seen any, but porn is needed for the world anyways.), there should at least be some equality.
All religious texts, whether it is the Bible, the Koran, Hebrew Bible, etc. It shares this one similar line:
Women and men are to be the same.
Why the hell is this not happening? What is up with many Muslim countries? Aren't they reading the Koran properly? The Muslim friends my mother talked to, they never wear the black thingy or headscarfs, and they wear it only when they wish to. Same with their Muslim husbands. They just wear whatever they like. No I am NOT saying it all Muslims, but those Muslim men who lock their wives away, the Talibans, and the Al Quaeda or whatever the hell they are spelled.
Perhaps, I should ramble more about this matter later. I need to stop my cold.
