The world is uncomfortable with women who may have similar moral codes to men. It is completely alright for men to have multiple partners. But a woman taking charge of her sensual life? That’s a complete no-no. We cannot have that.
So, we proceed to call her names and shame her. What is worse? It is women who indulge in most of the shaming! Women who have too much agency are threats to men and women alike.
This one is not a woman-centric struggle as much as a husband problem. Who among us has not been called a “nagging” wife for asking men to pull their weight around the house? Men will throw fits about this. Why? Because they already “work” all day.
What do you think we do all day? There is nothing more aggravating. People have zero respect for the effort that goes into managing a house.
Short Hair Don't Care
We must have missed the memo. What does a pixie cut have to do with who you are attracted to? Are they saying women with short hair look like lesbians? What do lesbians look like, enlighten us.
The number of guys who get offended by women with short hair is unbelievable. And these are no strangers but usually guys we know. You hear comments about how your hair looks better longer. Thank you. But I keep my hair short or long because I like it — not for you!
The Pink Tax may not be official, but we know it exists. Products for women like tampons, razors, contraceptives, and shampoos are more expensive. Every month is a losing financial battle as we continue spending large chunks of our money on pricey essentials.
We think it is absurd how women need to pay top dollar for menstrual products. Governments should be handing them out for free. It is time companies stop making profits off of our bodies.
Women Pay More
Women’s haircuts are way more expensive than men's. A truth so unconditionally accepted that it is a travesty. We have long hair, after all. We also curl, blow dry, straighten, and color our hair. All of that time and effort equals more money — or does it?
The fact is that women with short hair still pay more than men with long hair looking for elaborate cuts. Salons everywhere have gender-based pricing, and the rates are never in our favor.
