The struggle is real trying to name this post. So many ideas! I never have this many ideas for a title! I’m torn on calling this Do You Even Human? Or Human Much? Or The F Word. Or ahhh!!! I’m getting off point!
So I’m part of this group on facebook called Female Painters. OK, it’s not really called that. And I’m most certainly not part of any group for painting! Haha. But it is a group for females only who share an interest in something of which people in general might be interested in. I don’t really know how I got into the thought process of this, but isn’t the very idea of having a female exclusive club preposterous to people? If the group Male Painters existed, you know women would be up in arms about sexism and equal rights and the unfairness of it all. Female Painters? I haven’t heard a single person complain. It’s convenient sometimes, sure. You can post about cute smock ideas that would fit better for boobs. A topic men would not care about. Well. Maybe they would, but I’m thinking it would be for an entirely different reason.
Anyway. I find it curious. I’m a fan of opportunities for women: I am one! Of course I don’t want obstacles my male counterparts don’t have to face. But so many women claim they are feminists, fighting for equal rights, when in reality, they are fighting for better rights. Which is probably just as bad as men saying they are superior simply because of some anatomy differences. I’m pretty oblivious to gender. Or race. Or whatever. I don’t really care what you are. We are people. So why don’t we just treat each other that way. We all deserve to be respected and viewed as a person. When you decide to elevate that level of respect by doing something worthy of more than simply humaning, it doesn’t matter what your background is. It doesn’t matter if you’re red, blue, green, yellow, or mahogany. That Golden Rule thing. Why shouldn’t it always apply?
