So, as of lately, I’ve become..well kind of a bit of a feminist. and by a bit I mean a lot. Honestly, I don’t know why I was so blind for so long! Women rock (I mean that in the most heterosexual way possible)! We are awesome…not only are we smart, responsible, willing to work hard to get ahead, have smokin’ bods (forget body image problems…we are all beautiful), and we can kick butt at sports.
So why is there all of this hate towards women? We get picked last in dodge ball, are constantly being put down by our counter parts, being paid less than our counter parts (for the same freakin’ job), and don’t even get me started on how women are constantly putting themselves down (thank you fashion industry for that one.)
Let’s be real here, women rule the world. Who is responsible for the population…oh that’s right women. We carry your ass around with us for 9 months, and what do we get? Lower pay because of it.
At BSU, 60(ish)% of its students are female. 60(ish)-freakin-%. That means only 40% are male. Yet, who is getting the special treatment? Who is still getting the jobs? men…if someone could please explain this to me that would be fantastic!
It astounds me to think some Professors (I’ve seen it in my classes) still look at all women as little house wives and not educated people who are trying to gain more knowledge. At BSU I have actually had a professor dismiss my answer (and most girls in the class), but then applaud when a minute later a male student says the same answer, the same way.
Hi, it’s the 21st century. Women have the choice of where they want their lives to go. And no one, (read: NO ONE) has the power to tell us what we can and can’t do. Take life and embrace it for all it’s worth. Do everything you can to stand up for yourself, don’t let men or other women put you down! Especially in a scholarly community like this one where everyone should be treated fairly.
Well DMF, it seems like that isn’t the case. I’m doing my part to help change this, what are you doing?
