Sexy/Hot; Not a Compliment

I would really want to point out what my teacher said in class.

Girls, if ever someone tell you that you are sexy/ hot, don’t take it as a compliment.

Yes to that! I just feel weirded out. Girls out there, don’t you feel the same?

Whether there is the intention or not, that’s already a form of sexual harassment.

Never in my life did I feel comfortable being told sexy even though the other person wants to ideally get my body figure. Never did I think that the curves for an ideal body is a thing. That others would want it.

Never was hot/sexy a compliment.

Never!

Breaking into the stereotype

I see myself as a girl. But a simple girl. Certain stereotype towards girls, I don’t fit into. I’ll enumerate below. I’m making this article because I’m so bothered by how society are to stereotypical for gender expectations.

  • Women don’t play sports/ do physical stuff Well excuse me. I’ve recently been promoted to black belt. in taekwondo.
  • Women has to be prim and proper – I’m not exactly so
  • Women are fashionistas and shopaholic – I am not. I shop for clothes when I outgrow my clothes or I need to buy I prescribe attire. I just wear simple clothes.
  • Women are into makeup – I’m not. I don’t put on makeup unless special occasions.
  • Women do not have technical skills and are not good at “hands on” projects  – Hey! I am a computer person. Also, due to my dad’s (who is an engineer) influence.
  • Women are organized – I’m not the most organized person in this world
  • Women are weakling – No way! I’m aggressive in sparring in taekwondo. I can do push ups, curl ups, planking, and etc. I’m not of zip lines and such as well.
  • Women expects to be treated like a princess – No. I’m a strong and independent women who needs no men. But I appreciate those men are being a gentlemen.

I mean, why can’t we express who we are regardless of our gender. The reason why we aren’t free is because of what society dictates to us. “You have to be like this/ that because you are a girl/boy.” Ugh! Please stop the judgement. Please stop being stereotypical. Let a person be!

I am what I am and I don’t have to fit into these stereotype. I’ve just got to be me.

Emma, you are a gift for humanity. I know there are so many closed minded people out there. Thank you for being a public figure who represents those of us who support feminism for the sake of humanity. I can relate to you because I am so disturbed about gender stereotype around and it doesn’t make one free of their person because of the pressure of status quo.

I’ve Been A Feminist All my Life

Yes, I’ve been a feminist all my life even without knowing. I’m not really vocal about the issue on feminism but I’ve been living out as feminist all my life. I am not the stereotypical of a feminine. So how am I even a feminist.

  1. I’m not girly for a girl. I’m not even a lesbian okay. I’m just a simple girl.
  2. I’m a black belter in taekwondo. This isn’t stereo-typically feminine. I can be very aggressive like a stereotypical male. I can even be stronger than a male.
  3. I’m into physical activities. I get the hang of it more than some guys out there. (not to brag)
  4. I’m the one female chess player of my batch during my intramurals. I was the only girl team captain. Hello! Chess isn’t only a boys thing. It can be for girls too. As long as you have the brains for the game. Hehehe!
  5. I’m also into computer stuff. I”m always assign for technical stuff in school.

Seriously, I don’t like the stereotype in this world. I fight for these stereotype and I’ve always been fighting these stereotype. Especially towards the lgbt community. I believe that male and female are capable of anything. That doesn’t mean he/she is a female/male, his/her and capability is limited to this and that. You don’t have to fit into the stereotype. Do what you love to do. Also, don’t discriminate because of being too stereotypical. I don’t care what I’m doing is stereo typically manly. As long as I love what I am doing and I believe that I’m doing what I’m doing because I am capable of doing so.  All my life, I’ve been one of the instruments in breaking the stereotype even by not being so vocal about it.
