Feminism Theory: Believe in Who You Are

Feminism theory is not only a theory in modern world. Many of us think that the theory has been set in to practice for a very long time now to change the world of men in to a world of women, which is an entirely twisted and mistaken idea. All that feminism stands for is equality between men and women. That’s the reason why feminism is regarded as an act or a movement to promote women’s right as humans, not to promote hatred and grudge against men. The only purpose of this is to maintain a harmonious, co-existence between men and women so that the world becomes big enough for humans and humanity together.

Respect Begets Respect
Respect is a thing that can’t not be snatched or be asked for, it is something you need to gain, to earn. That’s only possible when you have respect for others feeling and beliefs. Yet make one thing clear that having respect doesn’t mean obeying whatever others say or expects you to do, that means sticking up to your values and philosophies and standing up for those not undermining those of others. Remember, you can fight and get your rights as humans but respect is to be won only.

Power up with Projection
Let yourself to project the inner you through your actions to feel the power of your beliefs. We kind of nurture a tendency to hide the real us behind the image of us to live up to the society’s expectations. Well, it’s time that we stop doing that and make the ongoing men dominated society a neutral and justified one. And to do that you ought to let the real you lead you, not the society scared, opposite gender dominated you. Don’t forget one thing that if you are doing something that is not at all wrong for you and not at all harmful to others you shouldn’t stop from doing that, no matter if it seems undoable in current male dominated system. Keep telling yourself that if they can be themselves, you can be yourself as well. There is nothing wrong or impertinent in that.

Be Practically Emotional
The key quality that makes us different to men is our emotion and passion. While men listen to their mind, we follow our heart. It’s good that if you do that just don’t let you to go overboard which can give others the room for taking over. If they do what they typically do, as in, trying to undermine you calling you ‘emotional fool’ or ‘silly senti’, don’t give a dime to that kind of childish whining just don’t allow them to rule your life, that’s it. It’s the best to keep the solid harmony between our mind and heart to be on the front seat. Feminism theory teaches us how to do that. It’s your life and let yourself run it not other people in the society.

Don’t forget the top most rule of feminism theory that feminism isn’t about hating men and disrespect social norms, it’s all about getting women their human rights in the society nothing more. So, don’t just stay put and wait, rush to gear up and go for what you have faith in because you don’t have to be anybody else but you to make a difference, to be valued and to be admired. The best part is doing so you don’t have to be rude or disrespectful to anybody else’s feeling, you can do whatever you want until that do any kind of damage to others, and believe me, being the real you isn’t harmful at all.

Feminism: The Way to Your Freedom

Ever felt the need and necessity to change the present condition and position of yours in the society as a woman? Well I have, and the feminists throughout the ages have been feeling the same as well, and that’s why the idea of feminism emerged and the feminism movement began. Feminism is the theory that really speaks for your rights as an equal as a man in the society that’s full of male aggression and domination to set you free from the iron cage you have been living in for years now. Still, if you seriously and genuinely want the freedom that feminism can offer you, here are some simple rules you’ll have to follow.

Be Feminist, Be Proud

We are in a world of men’s dominance for so long now that any possibility to change to that frightens us even after wanting to be treated as equal as them and want to avoid the risk of being marked and labeled as feminists. Trust me, it’s nothing to be frightened or scared of. See, if you’re used to cutting your hair layered like forever now and you totally want to get a new look for yourself, you should go and get a new hairdo, like bob, angular or if you prefer to stay a little inside the book then at least steps perhaps? Still you never really get yourself one of those hair-do’s just because you don’t want to take a chance. You don’t want to jeopardize the usual sense of safety that you get from wearing the look you are having now, and that’s where you stay behind.

Look, proverbs like “fortune favors the brave” or “no risk no gain” didn’t come in one day, the braves and risk takers actually bring a real positive change in every trait of their lives and others too, at least to some extents of course. I can assure and tell you boldly that most of the time a new step taken for a good cause gets paid off handsomely. “What if I might look like a joker?” this type of risk never stopped me from getting my hair new cuts. So, if you truly and absolutely believe whole heartedly that you should be treated and positioned as same as a man in the world don’t ever hesitate to join the feminism movement and to be called as a feminist.

Feminism is Indeed Humanism

Feminism is something that’s vastly misunderstood and misinterpreted both by us and men. Most of the people have that kind of idea that feminism is some kind of extreme idea of some extremist women. In the matter of fact, some of us also think like that. This partial blind idea of feminism has weaken us to stand up together for us strengthening the men day by day to gain more power and rule over us. See, feminism isn’t some cult or anti-social group; it’s just a group of humanists promoting the very idea of human rights to make the women equal as men since we all are humans.

Will it be so bad to work for humanity and to become more vibrant and valuable as humans? No, right? So, don’t just choose to be sitting in the back row trying to stay behind the imaginary curtain to avoid facing and fighting against your fear of uncertainty or criticism, step up to sign up for feminism movement. Remember, doing so, you’re not only going to free yourself as a human but also will help the women around you to look up to you and muster courage to try to change their luck with breaking free and take a flight, free and high!

Liberal Feminism and Human Rights

Have you ever thought why men don’t need to fight for their rights like we do? How come they get everything they want so easily? Why being a man is regarded as a power itself? Well, the answers to all these questions lie in our social system; a system which is built upon the base of male domination on us and for the men only. Trust me, any of it wouldn’t be possible if men didn’t felt themselves superior to us, the women. They believed and still believe in the superior theory so strongly that they actually made the overpowering women possible. As a result we still are fighting for our basic rights as human even after 2011 years in our world history of civilization. You know what? Enough is enough! It’s already been way too long we let the patriarchal system rule over us; it’s time to bring a change in us to change the system and the so called men’s world. That’s where the journey of liberal feminism begins and we, as the liberal feminists have to lead the journey sitting in the front seat giving directions and setting examples to others.

Believe in Yourself
Like I said before, men have taken the power to themselves only by believing in themselves and acting by that belief. It’s time that we turn the table. I know, it’s not always easy to take over our preset ideas that have been put in our mind from our early childhood as auto suggestion and to swim against the flow. But hey, who said that would be easy? That is a tough move which we can make real easy when we start believing in ourselves; when we start believing that we are never behind than men in any phase of our life. We have to keep faith in the very basic idea on which liberal feminism stands upon that we are equal to men and we deserve to get whatever they get and however they get.

Stand Out and You Won’t be Standing Alone
Never sit behind being oppressed or dominated, rise proudly and gracefully against any offensive and discriminating behavior towards you. Don’t ever be shy to stand out for what you feel deep down inside. Believe me when you dare to stand out no men would dare you because you won’t ever be standing alone and fighting for your rights, we all will be with you doing the same.

You are a Human First
The most interesting part to be one of the liberal feminists is rather being a human first than being a woman. Remember, we are not fighting for being women; we are fighting for the basic human rights the society has been denying us for being women for ages now. And because we are human first, no one can refuse to have our own rights and rightful places and positions in the society.

Build the Bridge of Balance
See, the beauty of joining the liberal feminists is to try to build the bridge of balance between the power and domination of men and women in the modern world. Otherwise the world and society will remain overly imbalanced like it is now for even many more years taking side with men in totally unjust ways.

We don’t want other people’s rights; we want our deserved ones since we don’t want to dominate men and take over the power to rule over them. All we want is the power over our life, our decisions, our choices and our positions as humans, the equal rights that are rightfully ours. The right to be live as equal as men since we all are first and foremost the humans.
