Society Debate: Has women emancipation gone too far?

Men are wailing for help!“Human behaviour can be defined by one word multiplied by three; more, more, more!” looking back at the history of women rights movements, I find the above saying not just a perfect descriptor for their evolution, but also for people all over the globe.

Men are wailing for help!
“Human behaviour can be defined by one word multiplied by three; more, more, more!” looking back at the history of women rights movements, I find the above saying not just a perfect descriptor for their evolution, but also for people all over the globe.

Old school women movements started with clearly understood demands, such as the right to vote, the right to hold public office, to education and the like.

These movements swept across Europe in the 19th century and slowly by slowly, their ideas engulfed Africa and Asia.
From then on the average female was liberated from the gluttonous male and life became better. Mothers, sisters and girlfriends started seeing a new world they had only envisioned in their dreams.

However, some women thought that what they had achieved was not enough, as man still dominated the corporate world, the economy and the family figure still remained the father.

They soon demanded for land ownership rights, and laws such as halving property after a divorce came into existence.

After achieving that too, some women realized that they could demand for more. Soon they got more, and they kept demanding for more and more.

Although they may not have realized it, the male figure and the rights of the male child were slowly fading. As you can tell, these women emancipation organizations had reached marginal utility and had started affecting the natural order society.

Later in the 1970s and 80s, bizarre second-wave feminism came up and associated with several gay liberation movement to agitated for sexual freedom from men.

As we speak now, many prominent feminists are gay and have a wave of followers around the world.

Sincerely speaking, if there is something called “losing the point”, it must be applied to these movements. As a matter of fact, according to Judy Rebick, a leading Canadian journalist and political activist for feminism, lesbians have always been at the heart of the women’s movement.

Before we go any further however, let’s understand one thing clearly; I am not a hater of women emancipation. I actually love the idea of equal rights for all. Women no longer have to salivate anymore as they watch their husbands and sons munch on tasty food taboos… they should go on and bite that delicious chicken.

What I’m against is what prominent feminists are agitating for- an almost reverse effect, agitating women to demand for those naturally given rights to men, rights that are embedded in personality and the fact that one has to be male to enjoy them.

What I’m also against is the extremism that some women have started treating men with, all in the name of equal rights.

Husbands are afraid to request their wives for a cup of coffee as they watch the premier league on TV because they are certain of the harsh answer they will receive.

If there is anything killing families right now, it is women who think that submission is an act of weakness and therefore, no longer respect their husbands. Instead of trying to understand, they think its time to answer back, time to break utensils.

Suddenly, we now have what they call “independent women.” Independent from what? I don’t know. But ask any man who has sadly married a self-proclaimed independent woman. You will wish never to.

These “independent women” will not do anything at home. They will clean the baby’s diapers today and will not do it tomorrow, expecting that it’s the husband’s turn. They will come home very late and expect the man to have bought himself take-away supper.

Now it is all about men marginalization—someone should help the men.
