They say men and women are equal. I agree and you might too. Women “claims” that they can par or maybe ‘out-par’ men in all aspects. I don’t disagree and neither do you, I suppose.
Let me bring you my argument.
I have seen breadwinners and so family heads who are women. There are women CEOs and MDs, Political leaders, Doctors, engineers, drivers, etc. and etc. And the women population is quite confident and boastful about these. Thus, staking claim in the equal right and status.
Now, were you (men) frustrated some day when you were dead tired and climbed into a bus, and found one row of the bus empty, but still you could not sit and relax because of the red letters “ladies”. Or one day you found that the train had 12 of its compartments filled far more to the capacity, but you turn around to a forbidden ‘empty’ boogie marked “ladies”.
Reservation for women in the legislature has been the ‘in thing’ since 2004. Not much has been done as yet.
I am not here to advocate either side; of being a feminist or the contrary. But this paradox, as I call, is way too much for me to handle. On one side, they say men and women are equal, but on the other they claim reservation on anything.
[ Don’t get me wrong, I too have a Mother and a sister, and I have the best interest of them in my mind and heart. ]
If men and women are equal, why can’t I sit on the row marked in red or get into the boogie restricted for the fairer gender. OR why don’t we have another row reserved for ‘MEN’, just a proposition though.
Don’t bother to reply, if you want to pick up a fight. I just wrote what I want to write.
