Why it’s always Woman’s Fault
Have you ever apologized even if it was not your fault?
Have you ever acknowledged that it was your mistake though you knew it was not in your control?
Isn’t it quite a common trend or say convenient societal norm to blame the woman for anything wrong or bad that happens?
If a baby Falls Sick, it’s the mothers fault that she didn’t take care of the baby properly.
If the husband goes out without eating food, it’s the wife’s responsibility because she didn’t serve the 30-year old man, a plate full of food in front of him.
How is this 60-year old mother’s mistake if the 30-year old son catches cold?
How often is it that the men acknowledge there faults?
Forget the small trivial things that happen everyday, the society even has the audacity to blame a female for getting raped.
Only the female is responsible for being raped because it was she who was wearing sensual cloths even if it was a saree, a jeans, a school uniform or just a diaper.
It’s the female who is responsible for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. She should have sensed that the person in front is feeling aroused by her mere presence.
“Age is just a number”.
I never believed in this until I read news about a month old baby and a 60 year old woman getting raped or a 16 year old or 60 year old raping brutally. Now I truly believe age is just a number.
Why only woman is responsible for raising the baby and taking care of everyone’s tiniest needs in the family?
The man takes the weekend off and takes rest after coming back from work while the woman takes care of the baby, takes care of the dinner and never gets a weekend off.
We have accepted this fact and it’s so deep rooted in our thought process that we don’t even mind it and we happily go on the guilt trips with even the slightest trivial matters.
How will this female blaming norm of society stop?
It has to start with YOU !!
Stop feeling guilty for the things that were not your mistake.
Stop accepting whole burden of the family and burying yourself under it.
Stop acknowledging that it was your mistake when you knew that it was a direct result of someone else’s actions and you couldn’t have done anything.
Start showing the mirror to the society that it’s everyone’s responsibility to at least acknowledge the mistakes.
And they can’t get away a with their guilt feelings by blaming women for every other thing.
Teach your daughter she doesn’t need to acknowledge and bear the burden of everyone else’s guilt.
Teach your son that he needs to grow into a responsible adult and be matured enough to acknowledge his own mistakes.
Stop accepting the guilt when it is not your fault. Period.
