Women as Weak: Where’s the Logic in That?

In class today women were assigned personality traits that are not valued in society:

  • emotional
  • irrational
  • soft

Why is being emotional a bad thing? Aren’t you scared by a person who has zero emotions? A robot, so to speak. Because that’s what we are asking of our young boys: that they be emotionless creatures. Let me be blunt and say that’s f***ed  up. 

Emotions are natural. They happen and they aren’t supposed to be suppressed. Suppression of emotions = bad. Expression of emotions = good. That’s the best way I can frame it in simple terms.

Plus, if I’m irrational for having emotions that’s some weird logic.
