Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #13

How come a man is always and necessarily expected to be a financial pillar of the family? How can one person be always be the caretaker? How can he go on without any ups and downs? How can he not cry in front of anyone?

How can a woman be expected to be the emotional and psychological caretaker and giver throughout her life? How is a meltdown not acceptable? How come she just can’t lock the house and go for while without having to think 10 different things?

  1. Yes, the unrealistic expectations of both genders really do illustrate how one-dimensional people are expected to be. We are often expected to fit one role and perform that role without fail– but the reality is that anyone can (and will) burn out if they never get a chance to hit the refresh button.


Your perception holds importance for me.
