Les femmes

Being a female is not always easy, it's pretty difficult if you ask me. I love being a female but there are times that i think, why does it have to be so hard? Everyone has pretty high standards about females, from the way they act to the way they dress and even their makeup. It's pretty frustrating that society has never told boys that they look bad without makeup, or that they need to dress differently. Why don't people have the same standards for men as women, why doesn't anyone say anything to a man for being sloppy or if they say something they will simply be ignored, or is it that women should be like that too? Should we be careless? We'd be criticized anyways. I think men are intimidated by strong and powerful women, maybe they just want to lower our self esteem to make us feel weak. Something that really bothers me is that women are always sexualized no matter what, it's really horrible. We should be able to wear a mini skirt or really short shorts in the summer because it is sooo hot and not have men staring at us with a perverted look on their face when we walk by. This is not our problem, we are not throwing ourselves in to danger we just want to wear what we want period. Some people say we are provoking rape but that's just not it, it was hot outside so i wanted to wear something short to keep me cool! It's pretty scary that just for being a female so many things could happen, i'm not saying it should happen to men but i think it's a matter of no equality. There is a case here in mexico about a beauty pageant queen that was taken hostage in to a band of drug dealers just because of her skinny figure and pretty face, they used her to pass money around her tiny waist. It's really sad that those kind of things happen, but it's our reality, the world we are living in right now. Here is an example of the high standards that people have for women.

  1. I agree so much with you, it is not easy being a female in this world. I hate that everything gets more dangerous because you're a lady and that you get blamed for other people's disability to be respectful. It is an everyday fight to live a free life as a woman!
