A poem on being feminist in a patriarchal world, which is hard and sometimes it feels hopeless; still, the fight for equality carries on!
You know what.
Being a feminist is hard.
Going against the tide is hard.
And then its all an idealistic society in your head
(that you want and you think you can achieve it),
but then you see bullshit everywhere and it makes you so
depressed and angry and frustrated.
And you have to live with it.
And sometimes it all seems so hopeless.
But you know its not.
And that is so conflicting.
And you wonder – is this really worth it?
The next second a crappy thing happens and you say to
yourself – of course it is.
Look at what is happening.
And you become alienated from friends and lovers
because they, in some way, demean you.
Of which you are blindingly aware of now.
Suddenly, a relationship is not just a relationship
where “love” is enough.
Where most views you held while growing up are
Why, for example, can men go out almost naked and a
Why, for example, do women undergo virginity tests
and not men?
Nobody questions these, nobody talks.
This is how nature made men and women.
These are their roles.
Follow them, or be ashamed of yourself.
It makes me sad and enraged.
Why do I feel this way?
Conservatives would blame feminism.

And it is our right, our duty – to become us, the best

Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
