Man and woman are indeed different from each other. Quite different in many aspects. But rules are something that should be applicable to both equally. They both should acquire ethics in their lives.
But SOME PARTS of our society though pretend to be intellectual, give some special freedom to men and cancel the thoughts of women’s freedom.
Nobody raises an eyebrow when a man gets married twice but so many frowns wrinkle at the mere thought of woman’s remarriage.
No one tries to peep through the window of a man who lives alone. Nobody cares who comes to visit him and when. It becomes “HIS business”. But everyone wants to know why a woman is living alone. It surely interests everyone who is coming to visit HER and WHEN.
If a boy is having an affair he dares to stay open as he knows that people will think “It’s quite natural to have an affair at this age” but people lose their elasticity in case of a girl. She has to keep her affair a secret because of this fact “What people will say?”
When a man plays single parent, the society feels proud (Such a caring father he is) but when a woman plays this role the first thing people tend to think “Why her husband left her? Or why is she living alone?” Everyone labors to keep an eye on her every activity. “Is she having an affair with any of her colleagues? But in case of a man it’s either “Who cares” or “His children need a mother”
Families always bother for a well-paid job for their sons but for their daughter-in-law they think “What’s the need of doing a job? We have everything. OR “Who will look after the home and children?” OR “The corporate world is not safe for women.” No one bothers to think that why many things in our society are NOT SAFE for women?
It is absolutely okay when husbands talk or share jokes with other women but when his wife interacts amusingly with other men they tend to join their eyebrow.
Why SOME PARTS of our society seem to adopt double standards?
