Gender roles – let’s talk
So, I was at work some days ago and I overheard someone tell a little girl “bend down and sweep well. Don’t you know that you’re a woman.”
I got very sad and pissed, because I’d heard this a thousand times.
“You better learn how to cook, or no man will marry you”.
“As a woman you must learn how to keep your house clean”
I can’t give examples of such weird statements for the men folk but feel free to add in the comments. But the main gist is that this is wrong.
Before we are men and women we are people, flesh and blood. Domestic chores or anything else shouldn’t be allotted to a specific gender.
You’ll end up raising people who believe chores like cooking or cleaning are for the ladies.
This is not a feminist chant but something we should think about because we going to raise the next generation.
What do you think?
Peace and love,
