“Being 'empowered' is not the same as being a 'bitch', I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present or future PROPERTY/ POSSESSION. I'm Ariana Grande: and if that's not interesting enough, don't talk to me. I can't wait to live in a world where people are not valued by who they're dating/married to/attached to, having sex with (or not)/seen with, but by their value as an individual.” ~Ariana Grande. In many cultures around the world, it is believed that a woman needs someone else other than herself to make her happy or to complete her. And that someone else is, SURPRISE!- A MAN! A woman can be enough for a man, but she cannot be enough for herself. And you know what? They are right! Because ladies are fragile human beings, the damsels in distress who need to be reminded time and again that they are fragile creatures. Women are to be kept in a cage and told what to do and what not to do, what to wear, how to sit, how to talk, etc. because we don’t know any better. Once we get into a relationship or we get married, we suddenly, overnight gain mysterious powers that make us wiser than we ever were. We are suddenly able to make important decisions for others like what we should do and what we shouldn’t. But still, we are not wise enough to think for ourselves. Our husband/boyfriend and his family will decide our fate. Some of these things include but limited to: if we can work, if we can wear that one dress that makes us look sexy, if we are fat and if we need to lose weight. The response we get when we disclose to someone we do not want to be in a relationship is quite normal you guys! Thinking we are content with ourselves that we can be in love with our life, with our self and no extra drama to deal with is outright outrageous you guys!! After all, we are wrong all the time, right? We cannot want to make a mark for ourselves in this world. Why? You ask? Because it is a man’s world! This world is run by the men, for the men! No matter how better we are at any work, it will still be a man’s world. We need to be defined by our relationship status. People- MEN, in particular, can do anything they want like go out late at night, stay out all night, be seen in public with different girls, they will be called a STUD. And if women are seen with one single guy out in public, they will be labeled as a SLUT. Why? Because it’s a man’s world, duh! If you haven’t noticed it already, this article is dripping with sarcasm till now. But let’s get serious, shall we? We, millennials put our entire lives on the social media. From where we eat, to where we are going for a vacation, to bathroom selfies, to whom we are dating! And we just don’t stop there. We like to indulge in PDA (a lot). Tagging our better half on something we find cute, sharing pictures, commenting with heart and kiss emojis, etc. I ask you why? Why would you want to be known for a relationship? Don’t get me wrong; I’m not against relationships. I’m against the fact that we ladies make our relationship our priority; when instead we could be making us our priority. When was the last time you had a cup of tea or a glass of wine just by yourself and did the thing that you love to do most? We need to stop acting like it’s a rare thing for a guy to find us desirable. Unless we decide that enough is enough, that we do not want to be defined by a man but our accomplishments this won’t change. SO, what are you waiting for? It’s time to shake this “man’s world” from its core. Go on then!
