Feminism has caught on with the new generation .. with exposure, education, lifestyle quotient taking the center stage! The basic line among today’s girls ..”I, Me and Myself and hell with the others” and this has led to an increase in ‘She’ brats – the heading of this post as well as discussion.
I have always felt that girls and women are emotionally weak but mentally strong and the reverse is true for men. So this leads to a situation where women definitely need a man in her life while that is not always necessarily true with men. But, men definitely need the support, love, affection of women to get ahead in a marital relationship. Basically, men lack all these qualities and only a woman can substitute this deficiency in men.
There is growing tendency among today’s women to be a ‘brat’ and the reasons are not far to find .. now, there are smaller unit ‘better off’ families ( only a single child or two at the most), independence from daily household chores (‘cooking’ hated by today’s women, i know), equality of sexes, freedom of speech among women .. you would have noticed this behavioral change and some of the women use profane language quite freely .. and growing self-indulgence in women in place of self-denial practiced earlier.
Nearly a decade ago, this was not the case with women but nowadays it is not unusual to see a woman indulging in “Adam-teasing” by not just wearing ‘provocative’ dresses underscoring their right to freedom in dressing. Today’s women indulge in smoking, drinking alcohol or having sexual promiscuity. There is a growing tendency among young girls to spiral out of control and not just being ‘a dumb listener’ to her father. This behavior is seen everywhere .. in corporate offices, homes and now, it is the men who should be ‘on guard’ to avoid any trouble. The cases of drunken driving by women is growing in numbers in India. They are upfront in demanding their rights as they are surely bright, bold and beautiful. And, they do not mind flaunting it!!
Psychiatrists hold parents as responsible for churning out ‘She’ brats! With both parents working long hours to meet material needs, they replace the love they should give to their girl children with expensive gifts. I am not professing that women are any lesser than men, but while it is still acceptable for a boy to be a brat, it is still not acceptable for a girl to be a brat! Women symbolize being a home maker, having compassion, empathy, kindness, forgiveness and love. But this is not happening any longer and that is resulting in more divorces in India. This situation is clearly a off-shoot of western influence and lately, there is a growing number of broken homes in India. The objective of this discussion is not recommending men to be a male chauvinist. I am a great advocate of woman’s rights! In fact, women are physiologically superior to men and are endowed with much more tolerance and patience. They make some of the best Human resource managers in the corporate world. The issue is not about equality of sexes! It is about who will play the ‘woman’s role’ if women start behaving like men?
Can two men make a home? No! Can a man take care of a child like a woman does? Again, No! The western influence is only making things difficult for Indian traditional families. Can we have ‘She’ brats? Why are the women ignoring the truth that the men can never replace them! Women can dress like men and get into tight jeans and short tops but men do not ever wear skirts and blouses. Women are emotionally equipped to hold her family together, to bring up her children with love and affection, to add romance in a marital relationships, and to make a beautiful world. How can a ‘She’ brat do all this?
