Fiction – Be YOU!

Rational : (of behaviour, Ideas, etc) based on reason rather than emotion.

“You are too rational for a lady so try to be less rational ” I am yet to put into words how I felt when I got that message (trust me, my reply was not nice) I wouldn’t have been bothered if ‘Mr. Rational’ had stopped at ‘you are too rational’. He implies that only the male gender are allowed to be rational. The same way people will say you cannot do something because ‘you’re a girl ” Wow! Shame on you all. Trying to limit the female gender for  being herself. Queen, do not let them stop your shine.

In this present world, there are so many prejudice in virtually every aspect of our lives (don’t let me even go there). So does he mean I should be less rational because I am a girl or was he expecting me to give myself a ‘you are a girl’ you shouldn’t do this pep talk? How sad! No, I did not even know I was rational but it doesn’t have anything to do with my gender.

What do you think? What have they tried to stop you from doing because you are a ‘girl’? I will like to hear from you.

PS: I am sorry I’ve been inconsistent I’ve just had so much to deal with but I’m back . Thank you for reading through.

    They stopped me from traveling abroad because it’s too dangerous for a girl to live alone

    • Everyone making excuses because ‘you’re a girl’ We are greater than this and we should make efforts to change this gradually. You are more than that girl! Thank you for reading through.

    There are substantial examples to buttress your points. I still think you should try out for faculty debate next year, with such creativity you could win every adjudicator’s heart.
