The thing wrong with all the females.

Don’t get any wrong idea because of the title, I’m not going to judge or complain about you beautiful souls, I just want to share an observation about you that you don’t seem to understand yourself. You can’t, you couldn’t have seen it because you live it, this might be a trap that you created for yourself out of complete unawareness of a male mind. I say a male mind because a male mind and a female mind work very differently, and in our current world where things are changing drastically, where male and female are somewhat becoming equal, you, as a female, you highly need to understand what a male mind goes through if you want to co-exist in the modern world as equals. Let’s start the argument from the beginning.

Females from a very young age are adored for their beauty, why not, they are, and as they grow older, their beauty becomes the centre of everything. They are approached by males because of their beauty, they are highly favoured if they are beautiful, they get a lot of attention because of their beauty, this might not be right to say but females do get a lot of advantages than males because of their beauty, and with this kind of favours and advantages, from a very young age, females begin to perceive beauty as the way of life. That’s why there are all kinds of cosmetics and designer clothes and jewelleries to make them feel beautiful. But do you really need all those things to feel beautiful?

Apart from the females, males are not that concerned about their looks because the society doesn’t grow them that way. A male is grown to be more concerned about his life, about how he is going to make a living, and because of the pressure the society puts on them they perceive work as their way of life. That’s the basic difference between the minds of a male and a female. A female mind prioritize beauty, and a male mind prioritize work. Because of this very difference in their priorities, there is always a conflict between the two genders. The conflict is not because we want to fight with each other, it is because that’s how we are grown by the society, and because of the way that the society builds the females, it leaves them very vulnerable. A man can always go on with his life, anyone can go on with their lives if they know how to make a living, but females are meant to just look good which doesn’t guarantee them a way of making a living. This as a result, makes the females become dependent on the males. Somebody might have had this thought to dominate the females and somehow, they managed to convince the entire world that this was the way of the world. It could be some another conspiracy but nobody talks about it—but that’s not my point.

Females do get a lot of appreciation and attention at a young age from the males because that’s the age when both the genders are able to live carefree. They are mostly in schools or colleges for which they are dependent on their parents. At this point of their lives they both are equally available as none of them have much idea about the real world, but as things start getting real, and the society makes them sure of their priorities, things begin to change.

Males become inclined to work while females stick with looking beautiful, males focus their full concentration on making a living while females stick with looking beautiful, males find work stressful and complain about it but all the females care about is looking beautiful. And after a point the difference between their priorities become difficult for each other, things fall apart—males seem to lose interest from the females they adored so much leaving them back to vulnerability. At this point females think they are not appreciated and don’t get much attention because they don’t look good anymore, which gives business to plastic surgeons, make-up industries, body augmenters, and maybe, feminism?

The thing that females need to keep in mind is that you are beautiful, you are very beautiful whatever the way you are, but your world doesn’t have to revolve around it. Know that we are appreciated for what we do, not for how we look. Appreciation of looks might matter at the young age when we are not mature enough to understand the real world, but it doesn’t matter when you are a full-grown adult. So suck it up and focus on the work, you will be appreciated and adored.

  1. Where are you living? 19th century finished 120 years ago! Feminism, moreover, has nothing to do with lost beauty, but when I read things like that traditional stuff here, it is obvious that feminism has still a lot to do. I am a male, and do not agree at all with your very antique and quite oldfashioned gender views!!!

  2. You hit the nail on the head with the society thing. It’s society. Males and females have been brainwashed by the society via their parents and elders. It doesn’t have to remain that way.

    So, it is not the females who choose beauty over function. The truth is the world has been patriarchal. Society needs to change how it thinks, or better yet, society must leave alone its members. If society, as a collective, doesn’t have anything good to say, like an individual, it must keep its mouth shut.

    We are working on changing the mindset of women so that those raised in a patriarchal society can and will move away from the old way when it comes to raising their own children. As with the consequences of apartheid in South Africa, it will take time to eradicate the wrongs of the past. I can only hope it can be corrected, even if it’s in 50 years’ time.

    Just to give you an example, in my household, I am the breadwinner. I don’t use make up unless I’m attending an event. I dress up still. I love my shoes. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. I am not saying we can do or be everything. I’m just saying we should allow people to be just who they are and let’s start getting rid of labels and stereotypes.

  3. Great read, I would like to give a few inputs of what I have observed. Men and women are different from each other not just in physiology but psychologically. If we look back in time, men were the bread winner of the family and the role of women was that of a care giver. Since the society was patriarchal, boys got a fair chance in education while girls were limited to the kitchen. Hence, they rose above those petty issues. You are right, the concept of beauty is well settled in us because in traditional society’s (I’m taking India as an example) beautiful women got better marriage proposols. That’s why we see those manipulative ads like Fair and Lovely and now there’s Fair and Handsome for boys, to cash on the insecurities of fragile people. As a young girl in school, I had a hard time making friends, especially with girls because most of the talks were focussed on outer beauty. How your hair and skin looks, what’s wrong with your looks. I think most of it comes with age because during teenage our hormones are all over the place and we develop a certain liking for opposite sex. Proving the evolutionary theory, men and women were meant to procreate. Hence, the attraction. Also, there’s one major difference if we talk about women living in traditional societies as compared to those in West. I’ll cite my example here. I have been born and brought up by strict, over protective Indian parents, who refused to let us go outside. To explore the world. Their main concern was to model their girls turn into good, well behaved and traditional Indian women. Then one day, they just threw us into this world, all by yourself. Struggling to find a space, to save yourself from certain people and to develop skills to raise your voice when needed.

  5. I think I understand what you’re trying to say, but unfortunately you’ve described only one part of the so-called females in this world and one part of the so-called males in this word. You’re right that gender is a social construct but referring to males and females makes your piece sound biological and, to me, what you’ve described aren’t actually the biological differences between males and females. I can see you want to contribute to changing society’s thinking about gender, I think you’ll resonate more with others if you take into account the whole range of ways men and women navigate through these destructive norms.

Hopefully, the younger generation of women will move away from believing that beauty is all there is to being a female. There are too many opportunities available today to continue to cling to this old belief system.

  7. Actually, I agree at certain level of feminism. I agree that men and women are different, both physically and physcologically. In my opinion, the thing that should be a concern is more on their role in society, including opportunities for getting an education, career opportunities (including opportunities for occupying strategic positions), participation on politics (not only as voters, but also occupy certain political positions in government) even the right to be treated with respect and equally (for me, equally doesn’t mean ‘the same’).
    I agree with your point of view about those beauty concept. It’s created by society. The girls have indoctrinated by society and the elders about what beauty concept looks like, especially in patriarchal culture. In my country, Indonesia, girls considered beautiful if they have fair skin, long black straight hair, pointed nose, wide eyes and slim body. That’s why whitening and slimming body products have the highest demand here.
    Thanks for sharing your opinion.
    Best regards.

The title, oh the title, you know that you will get people reading with that one. Brilliant. I have many thoughts about cultural differences, gender, social equality/discrimination but first that the reason women wear make-up isn’t because they feel beautiful… it is the opposite because the corporations who manufacture the cosmetics generally have a male CEO pushing products onto people (women) with low self-esteem – created by an unequal society. In many countries we are trying to change this and have powerful women who direct their own lives. I have travelled 2 years solo for example in many countries. I will begin there and see how the thread goes. Have a great day!

  10. Perhaps the title should read, The thing wrong with all the females in modern cities.

    The transition to focusing on beauty happened in less than 50 years in many parts of South Africa. There were no cosmetic shops or plastic surgeons 30 years ago.

    For women, in farms, towns and villages, beauty was defined as cleanliness and good manners. One was considered exceptional when one could use their hands, that is, to tailor clothes, gardening, decorating exterior walls of their houses (mural decoration), etc.

    Mothers were conscientious in teaching daughters to cook, clean and speak respectfully while teaching sons to wake up early and tend to matters outside the house. This applied to households of whites and blacks, alike.

    My mother’s understanding of the world changed beyond her comprehension, she is puzzled, doesn’t understand, how women attract men nowadays when they can barely cook.

    I do admit what you have written I noticed in the capital cities, Cape Town and Johannesburg. Majority still reside outside these metropolitan cities.

    PS. I am aware of towns that do not overvalue beauty right now in the neighbouring country, Botswana. I suspect it is due to the slow penetration of western media to these areas.

  12. I understand what you are getting at, though. Physical beauty is not the only kind of beauty that women should exclusively focus on. We have all heard the phrase ‘she has a great personality’ and thought that that means she is not physically attractive. But, so what? Physical beauty lasts for only a short time. A beautiful soul will probably last for a lifetime!

  13. As long as we, as a society continue to stereotype people into male and female categories, this conflict will continue. “Girl Power” and “Girls can do anything Boys can do” is great, but it just further perpetuates the conflict. Boys try to prove these theories wrong and girls may use it as a tool to diminish boys. The truth of the matter is that we are all equal. Both parents and the media need to do what they can to show this, without diminishing one group or the other. Just as not every girl wants to be a nurse, not every boy wants to be a plumber. Our jobs as parents are to raise complete people who show tolerance and respect for everyone. Individuals may show they are not worthy of respect, but we should not stereotype a gender or a race because of what one person does. Hate the act, not the actor. Our jobs as males and females is to set an example of fairness and equality for all, so our sons and daughters realize they can be successful in whatever they choose to do, if they get the right education and training and work hard.

  16. I have struggled with gender issues my whole life. The beauty thing, the no make up thing. My parents made me look like a boy for a few years in childhood for abuse reasons. I chose to have only boyfriends for years. I wanted to be a boy. Then I wanted to be a princess, a mother, a sexy woman. I wanted a good job but I didn’t want to suck a dick to get there. I wanted attention for looking good and my efforts. I do martial arts but I don’t want to be killed doing my sport. On and on…However, the piece I value is that I (ME) was able to make all of these choices except for the abuse as a child. I hold that CHOICE as a privilege. I know it doesn’t work that way everywhere and it seems like work constantly needs to be done to keep allowing those choices. The work is complicated and I’m grateful to all those out there that work each day to allow people like me to have choices. Thanks for writing this thought provoking post.

  18. this is a very prickly topic.I think I understand what you are saying about women being concerned about their appearance . However I don;t think that this is so much of an overwhelming concern now as it was when I was a child in the 1950s. I think a problem for women today is that they are expected to be attractive and have successful careers and also be homemakers. In other words they have to be Ms. Perfect. No one can fulfill all those roles perfectly. That is why they need a husband or partner who can assist them and take on some of the home roles like cooking and helping withe the children. I’m not sure how this is viewed where you live but my daughters husband is a good at cooking , childcare and can run it all when my daughter is away for a few days on business. He also has a full time job in the military. Just sayin’.

    Some women manage to age beautifully, but unless you are fortunate in your bone structure there is little you can do (short of surgery – shudder) to stop your face collapsing.

  21. With all due respect your feminist perspective is woefully misogynist. I’m at a loss as to where I start!
    Male dominated society shackles females with stereotypical generalizations from the day of birth – boys play sports, tumble about, get their clothes dirty. Little girls play house, have “tea parties” with their dolls dressed in frilly pink dresses – not because they want to, they’re expected to. “Act like a lady” parents scold. Meanwhile, their brothers do as they please because “boys will be boys”.

    On beauty – attractiveness isn’t gender exclusive. Attractive men are vastly more successful than those who don’t bother with appearance.

    In many parts of the world women are considered property. Fathers marry off their young daughters, married men see nothing wrong with cheating on wives, older men divorce the mother of their children to marry much younger “attractive” women.

    Women are paid lower salaries for the same work as men.

    Far too many men consider it their right to sexually harass or abuse women & girls.

    Vanity knows no gender – just because men demonstrate theirs differently than women, doesn’t negate the fact it flourishes.

    Feminism insists men take responsibility for their actions – think about that.

India is very strict with education, it is so for a good cause, but if people are just forced to learn random things without being taught why they need to learn them, with no doubt it will create people who will do things but won’t know why they need to do them. This as a result, leaves them having no interest in their course of work.

Many more girls are pursuing the sciences and math, and playing all kinds of sports, which used to be the bastion of boys. And, more and more females are placing career ahead of starting, or even having, a family. Most societies still do place a premium on “pretty”, but that’s mainly because there is so much money in it. We’ll probably realize “true equality” when we see an equal amount of cosmetics, and fashion, advertisement directed toward males. — YUR

There are men who like to put on makeup and there are women who like to work.
    What you have stated has nothing to do with one’s gender or sex. Your fight is against external beauty, and I understand that, but to associate *only* women with the same is wrong. Men also have deceiving appearances, even if it ain’t in the form of how we understand beauty. Makeup isn’t the only thing that implies beauty.

  29. I understand what you are trying to say, although the wording could have been better. As a mother of a girl and a boy, I try to give my children a gender neutral education as much as possible. Society DOES condition our brains from very early on. It was easy to dress my little girl in “boyish” clothes, not so much to let her little brother wear her pink and flowery tshirts. They’re just clothes, but I had to make this effort to remind it to myself: they are just clothes. It doesn’t matter if a girl is wearing a pink tutu with a pirate tshirt. And it shouldn’t matter if a boy wants to wear the same. Girls and women need to be educated to understand that “beauty” is relative and that brains are what matters most. But there is also a lot of efforts to be made on the side of boys education. They need to be educated in a way that they grow up valuing women. Feminism for me means choice. As a woman, I want to have the choice to work, or to be a stay at home mother. Same choice should be given to men: they should be able to work if they wish so, but also to stay at home and tale care of the children if they want – letting their other half be the bread winner. It’s a huge switch in mentality and it takes time, but I see it happening more and more. We have to fight with patriarchy, which is ingrained in our brains despite ourselves.

  30. Ok I had a hard time reading this without cringing but I see where you are coming from. However, woman nowadays do care about working and making a living and have actually cared for a VERY long time. There are also plenty of MEN out there who wear makeup and makeup isn’t just about looking beautiful it’s a form of art and expression as well. Makeup is also a trend just like people may like to buy certain brands of clothing that’s in style or how everyone needs to have the newest iPhone out there. I do think society has put high beauty standards in fashion trends to be skinny and flawless etc but that has affected both men and women. There are plenty of MEN who also get plastic surgery as well. I appreciated your opinion though and I’m sure you knew the backlash you were going to get on this, but I’ll have to disagree with you.

    1. Thank you very much for your comment. This article is not intended to point out women don’t think about making a living, or make up is something bad, but it is about how our society stereotypes us, and how the society doesn’t let us be our true selves. I directed it towards the females because no matter how our society might be advancing, females still got a long way to go. And not to argue with you, but to make my point clearer, I would ask you to read one of my articles about the ‘trendsetters’. The link is given below:

  31. It’s very interesting reading you for a french woman. Sorry for my english. I think times have changed and education too. The little Girls are not stuck with their beauty only but also interested in knowledge, science and so on. I think men should think of making them more beautiful for the women and not only work.
