Unlike what a lot of you might interpret this post to be based on the topic, I actually do believe in the ideology of equality and it's something that I hope it does get accepted by everyone and we all get to practice it because equality is good, if we're being truthful.
Honest equality, of course.
I believe that men and women should be treated the same way, that men and women should have the same pay if they both do the same work and bring in the same results. I believe that women should be treated equality and not seen as a weaker vessel, meaning that they should get no special treatment simply because they're women but should be treated the same way men are and vice versa.
But you see, so far I've come to realize that people only want equality when it favors them. Some people want to get the same pay but don't really want to put in the same amount of work the person getting higher pay puts in.
Now aside from the monetary aspect and all that, when it comes to equality and wanting it, I feel it should apply to everything and by everything I mean, everything. But then I really think that's impossible for now because people will always be biased and most likely will see one of the genders as a weaker gender and I will tell you why I say so.
A couple of days ago, I stumbled upon a tweet where this lady had called this guy out for rape and everyone had immediately believed her without any form of investigation or anything. A lot of the feminists community and other related communities immediately started asking for his head on a plate. They called his work to make sure he was fired and were already getting ready to help the lady send the guy to prison. Everyone immediately believed her without asking her any questions or hearing the guys side of the story.
But luckily for the guy, he had screenshots of their conversations debunking everything the lady had said against him and he also sued her. It didn't take long for her to come out with an apology tweet, asking for forgiveness. A lot of the guys got upset and insisted that the dude went on with the lawsuit while some asked that he forgave her and just let go.
Watching all of the drama unfold, I knew for a fact that if things had been the other way round and the dude had been the one falsely accusing the lady, the tweet wouldn't have gained that much traction at first, but then it would become the talk of the town when he starts asking for forgiveness and this is because all of the online feminists organization out there would be on his case, asking the lady to go ahead with the lawsuit.
What I'm trying to say is that I've come to notice that when it comes to the issue of rape or domestic violence, people tend to take it more seriously and believe the story immediately when the victim is a lady and not so seriously when the victim is a male and that isn't right.
If we really want equality, then it has to be on all front. For man and woman to be equal, we really have to be just that, equal.
