Yes, It’s certainly time to put gender on the agenda.
Did we have to have a female Prime Minister to highlight and bring to mind these horrible discrepancies in our societal attitudes?
No wonder there’s a glass ceiling for women, who wants to put their hand up for this kind of abuse?
A very strong and dedicated woman, that’s who.
Why is it considered so cool to be nasty these days?
I was brought up in an era where we were all encouraged to bringing out the best in ourselves and others.
It makes better sense to live in a functional society than dis-functional surely?
Sure there were the usual deviance’s and deviates and there always will be but the ratio has really tilted way too far over into the negative.
We’re becoming more unbalanced and de-evolution looks like a reality.
Is this is what’s at the root of all the ism’s?
Yeah it’s a tough ol’ world at times but in many ways things have never been so good, so why be so unkind?
I get it that each generation that comes along needs something to differentiate itself from the previous. We seem to need to out-shock each other and who hasn’t taken a small amount of secret glee thinking you’re way cooler than your mum or dad as you grow up but one day you’re going to be on the other end of the stick (and then you become humble).
This seems to have flowed over into so many aspects of our lives – movies, music, television and internet. Art imitates life they say but it also seems to have a certain amount of validation effect.
If a child is growing up watching music videos of scantily clad girls being led around with dog collars and it becomes normal and kind of funny to refer to women or girls as ho’s. (Thanks America). There’s an undercurrent of gross disrespect going on there.
Isn’t what we see out in the world kind of like our thoughts within?
What we think – we become or are?
