First of all, let me be clear on one point, I do not, in our society at least, believe that men and women should or could be treated equally. This is by far something close to impossible!
Now, the thing I do not agree with is those “double standards” that a boyfriend, a fiancé, a father, a brother or a husband sometimes lays for his girlfriend, daughter, sister and so on, especially if the female was at an age and a maturity level that allows her to make “right” and “mature” decisions regarding her whereabouts, her acquaintances and her way of dealing with people and situations.
Honestly, I am the kind of girl who sees jealousy as a very important element in a love relationship and I actually consider it as a way to demonstrate love and care yet I do not favor being “told what to do and what not to do” on the basis that I am a female!
I guess the idea I’m trying to demonstrate is how unfair society could be to females not due to the fact that they are less mature, less capable or inferior and only because they are “females” although I know many of them, like my mother for example, who can actually assume both the female and the male role in life and in building and maintaining a family.
So tell me something: why the double standards then?
