Don’t cry like GIRLS! 

Often boys are told this. Just one sentence that has such a heavy and dark meaning to it. Are we are telling our boys that girls are weak? Are we telling are girls that they are not strong enough?

This is such a sexist statement, that girls and boys often grow up listening to. Aren’t we not preparing our generations to become what we ourselves criticize. Telling the boys that they can man handle the girls when they want to. Assuring the girls that they always need someone to protect them.

We don’t realize but many things that we put into the minds of our children leads to changes in the society. It’s all on us how to raise them. Whether we want to nurture them with good practices or we want to lead them to a weak and filthy future.

Somewhere deep down, when we give it a thought, we understand that such statements encourage the bigger problems to come challenge us in future. The dark reality of eve teasing and rapes starts to haunt us starting from the four walls. 

I pledge not to raise my children with such sexist statements to contribute towards what little I can do for the society.

After all, it’s a matter of our children’s future!

    1. Yes my dear Miriam. We end up doing things without realizing their impact on the society and our kids. Sometimes, we just tend to follow what we have seen our elders doing. But I guess now its time to start thinking before speaking out.

  1. And above all of this why do we teach our child not to cry? Why do we try to make him so emotionally strong that he actually grows up to be almost emotionless?? This isn’t about just women I think it’s more about humans..

  2. My mom says this to my lil bro. I’ll tell her not to. He crys alot for electronics. Its like its hard to live without it. Usually when he doesn’t have things to do, I usually search up online fun things to do. IDK. Society is like this now these days. Electronics are taking over. Even for me sometimes. Woah topic changed a bit! Lol sorry.

    1. I must thank you for your support. We do it without realizing that we may harm our children in the long run. I really appreciate it.
      On the other thing, yes, children now a days, in fact even adults seem to be unable to live without electronics and gadgets around us. Thanks for sharing
