I believe that both men and women should be portrayed as equals. Equal rights, pay and opportunities.
It has developed recently that women have become empowered with the use of social media, music and film. Which is great! But it’s when it gets to the point of where women believe that they are better than men, this is where I have an issue. Am I wrong by saying that it is just as worse as stating women are more empowered than men, then vice versa? Sexism does not just apply to females, it also applies to both sexes.
Songs like “Salute” by Little Mix and “Run the World” by Beyonce are obviously just directed at women so they’ll buy it and then it’ll make a shed load of money. I hate these songs. If we switched it around and men were singing these about their own gender, there would be a massive uproar, I would even say that the songs wouldn’t be allowed to be played on radio stations etc.
Personally I think both sexes should be seen as equal. I also believe that the word “Feminism” should be changed. It’s definition being the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of sexes. But this word directs towards women, men can also believe in the equality of rights. However this word implies that they cannot. Not only this, but the word is seen as an association with women burning bras and growing armpit hair. Which obviously is utter bullshit.
Do you think that “Feminism” should be changed to welcome both sexes? Personally I prefer to just say that I stand for equality.
