What is Femininity?
Often my view on femininity is challenged. Recently, someone told me that I am anti- feminism, which isn’t true in slightest. I view that a woman should own and take responsibility for her femininity. We can do anything a man can do, but why should we? We produce life.
Each gender has a specific role, these attributes allow us to become one, once we’ve connected. Women hold ALL the power. This has been true throughout history and remains true today. The only way a woman becoes powerless is if she decides to give it away. I see women emasculating men daily. This is relinquishing your power. Our role is to be nurturing, caring, passionate, inspiring, influential, strong emotionally, and empathic.
Do I believe all genders should be equal? Yes. Do I believe in equal pay for equal labor? Yes. Do I believe women need to act like men in order to gain power? No. We were born to be meek, influential and empowering, not belittling and aggressive.
Femininity is powerful, despite what many people want you to think. However, it’s masculinity that is fragile. Without a woman, a man would be powerless – brains over brawn… #ThinkAboutIt
“Femininity is depicted as weakness, the sapping of strength, yet masculinity is so fragile that apparently even the slightest brush with the feminine destroys it.”
