Something that REALLY BOTHERS ME!!!

Can we please stop subscribing to antiquated gender stereotypes? It’s not good for anyone. This issue doesn’t solely concern women either; it is damaging to men as well. As a culture, we have to stop leading our girls to believe that they can’t be strong and capable leaders. And we have to stop leading our boys to believe that they can’t be sensitive and emotional. I know we like to compartmentalize people, but human beings are much more complex than that. And we shouldn’t be defining half of the world population by one set of characteristics and the other half by another. We would be a lot better off if we stopped using gender to measure a person’s worth and instead, looked at the abilities and character of the individual.
