When it seems like there is more issue over gender equality these days since before the 19th amendment was passed, I have decided to discuss how I think about women. I am, obviously, a man and in a world full of sexism and disrespect directed at women I thought this might be a breath of fresh air. My ultimate goal with this article is to express to you, the reader, that not all men objectify women.
You must certainly realize that at one point you were carried inside of a woman who ultimately gave birth to you. Let’s stop right there. A woman literally gave you life, the ultimate gift which allows you to breath the air on this Earth and the ability to experience the walks of life. In my opinion there really is no gift like the one of life. And then the ongoing gift of that same woman who is your mother. The person who is your sworn protector and the one you can always rely on for whatever challenges you must endure through the early stages of life. And even once you are old enough to care for yourself, your mother remains a true guardian angel for you in all areas that you may need help getting through.
In many ways I lack to understand the common disrespect of women. For when I look at a woman who is close to me (girlfriend) I can see nothing other than truly a goddess. I mean- what a beautiful person both inside and out that is here to be by my side forever. And by my side as an equal, as my partner through life that will face any and all challenges with me no matter how trial-some. A woman can truly take care of the man they choose, and by treating women with the ultimate respect a true working relationship is created. Not to mention a man has a someone they can really be themselves around. You do not find that very often once you have grown out of your original household. But with a woman you can let your emotions show while knowing that you won’t be persecuted or judged in any fashion. How can any man look at a woman who he has created the feeling of love with and offer her any form of disrespect in return? How could a man treat the woman of his life like anything other than royalty when knowing that she is his rock, that she could be the future mother of his children, that she will actually help him in creating life? It baffles me and in this article I can offer you no explanation to why it happens- I can only try to show you that there are good men still in existence.
Think about how all throughout history women have not had the same rights they have today. And in areas of the world some still do not have the rights that they are obviously entitled to. And yet, almost everywhere for as long as we have recorded history, women still gave their sacred ability of creating life to the men around them. Perhaps they saw it as their duty, but I like to think those women of the past still chose in a way. I know this was not always the case. But perhaps they continued to gift the world with children with the hope that the next generation or even many, many generations later there would be more men born with eyes that could see women for what they truly are. In my short years being alive I have seen less men with these eyes than those who see woman as objects to be used. And this saddens me. But our world has made progress in this field, and my only wish is that it would speed up tenfold.
I haven’t until this point discussed much of any politics in my writing. But when the world of government collides with my views I must speak some of what I believe in my heart. To have a man, a fellow man, as the president of my country who so blatantly views women as objects disgusts me. I could care less about faults I see with his policies and practices- but when I see that a man who cares nothing of the value of women is leading my country it is tragically disheartening. The president of the United States is a role model looked up to by so many youth. People in the United States grow up with early dreams of someday being president themselves. And while that dream is usually replaced as they grow older, it is evidence of how much we look up to this leader. But I cannot look up to a man, no matter how successful in business he may be, that cares nothing for undervaluing women directly to his people. And to have yet another man, who is so close to becoming a supreme court justice, someone who literally determines cases of rape and misconduct against women, is even more so tragic in my mind. The fact that someone who has committed horrendous acts against women is actually up for this position is truly ridiculous. I think it speaks widely of the state America is becoming in how we as a country view women.
The men who view women as they truly are, amazing equal humans to share all aspects of life with, must never hide their views. They must teach their children and others they have influence over the sacredness of women. And those in a position of wider influence must share their views with their audience, and tell them why it is right! Women are so amazing, so elegant with beautifully created ideas and aspirations that they have just as much of a right to pursue. We cannot allow this unwarranted disrespect to continue to grow. We all have a voice, and for something so powerful as the idea of treating our fellow humans how they need to be treated, we must use this voice. It’s almost the year 2019- let’s speed up the progress so we can work on more complicated issues in our world, for this, this is something so simple that must be resolved.
