Indian men have gender bias

Posted by iluvshrutiverma on October 24, 2009

Most men have a gender bias. This article is one of the few articles on this blog that I am writing in favour of woman.
You can evaluate yourself on the below mentioned 10 points and evaluate for yourself whether you are gender neutral or not – perhaps it is time to change.
1. When you go out with a female, insist that you share the expenses equally. Most humans get offended when someone else pays for them. Males do not have a right to hurt females like this.
2. Do not open the door for a woman, if you will not open the door for a man. We should treat women the way we treat men. That is what gender equality is all about.
3. After a party, if you share a taxi ride back home, do not drop the girl first just because she is a girl. If your house is closer, then you should get dropped first.
4. When you are traveling by public transport (say a bus), you see an old woman standing while you have a seat. Before offering her a seat, think about whether you would have offered a seat to an old man too?
5. You work as a manager and there are males as well as females working in your team. Do not allow females to leave early on pretext of household work. Males have equal responsibilities at home.
6. When you look at a female, realize that she is superior to you in physical strength. She is
going to live 7 years longer than you. This thought should specially come to you if there is a
situation where the female is expecting some physical help from you – for example, in keeping a
heavy travel bag in the cabin of an airplane. Do not do it for her. Females should carry only as
much luggage as they can carry on their own. It is only because they make males (even strangers)
do the labour work that they live so much longer than us.
7. When you have a heavy piece of baggage that need to be kept in the overhead baggage compartment, and you wanted to seek help of the cabin crew – do not change your mind if the crew is a female. Let her do her duty. Females and males are two wheels of the society. Let the females also do their job and derive job satisfaction.
8. In office jobs requiring shifts, do not force only male employees to work night shifts. Let
females also take turns. If they refuse, fire them (like the way you would fire males if they
are not fit for a job). If the trend continues, stop to hire females.
9. When an NGO asks for money, look at their advertisements. They will always have girl photos,
because they know everyone has a soft corner for females. Refuse to donate, and tell them that
you would donate to NGOs who are not biased towards one gender.
10. When a girl beggar asks you for money, do not give it. You are already giving Rupees 7,428 Crore Rupees through women’s ministry to the poor girls. (Men pay 82% of the taxes collected in this country).

1. When you go out with a female, insist that you share the expenses equally. Most humans get offended when someone else pays for them. One gender  routinely paying for the other makes the other gender feel inferior. Males do not have a right to hurt female ego like this.

2. Do not open the door for a woman, if you will not open the door for a man. We should treat women the way we treat men. That is what gender equality is all about.

So boys – Next time someone says ‘Respect women’, you should ask them – ‘Men do not deserve respect?’

Next time, when someone says – ‘A woman is a mother and a sister’. You should ask them – ‘And men are only meant to be free ATM machines?’

    Very true its the men who have this women pamperment syndrome ingrained into them. Men create bias against another men, often unasked by women and then thoroughly unjustified.

      Very true Virag.

      “Men create bias against another men, often unasked by women”

      There are two categories of men who want to continue the bias against men:

      1. Chivalrous men – these are the men who think chivalry is a virtue. Protecting women is their responsibility.

      2. Starved men – these are the men who do not have a personality to attract a woman. For them, the only way to get intimacy is licking the feet of females hoping that this will massage their female ego.

    Its not only Indian Men but Men in General all over the World ( This is irrespective of Region, Religion, Country, State, Province ) .
    The Problem is if Men start treating Women equally without any bias ( as discussed in this article ) then one has to be ready to be labeled as Cruel to Women .
    So what are the options really there for Men ?

    • iluvshrutiverma said

      Yes, if we start to treat women equally then we would be termed un – chivalrous, ill – mannered, un – cultured. But we should be ready for it.

      Since ages, they have enjoyed privileges, and the more privileges they get the more lethargic they get. And the crying never stops.

      Chivalry is a term coined in order to exploit men. In the name of chivalry, men are made to take onus of every responsibility that needs hard work, and women just relax at home while men do the job for them.

      About the specific word ‘cruel’, I am sure you noticed that there is only a word called gentleman, there is no word called gentlewoman. When they are cruel, they are just being what they are supposed to be.

      You are right about the state of men worldwide too. I wrote about Indian men because that is the area where I have most exposure.

  3. A lot of of folks write about this topic but you said some true words.
