The big question is of course -are you a feminist? And can you be a “girl” and a feminist?
This is question that I have been fighting with for sometime.
Personally, I like being pretty, I like flirting with guys. I like Kawaii things, soft toys, nice clothes, and strong men . . . . so can I be a feminist ? ? ?
I think that somehow, there should be no conflict. But, western feminism from my view, has created a battlefield that some how makes us choose a side: men – women – and after that . . . right –wrong.
The traditional feminine virtues of looking after your man and family are seen by western feminists as a sign if subjection.
But I dream of having a man and a family, and children, and if I can spend the time with my children, if the gods bless me with them, then I know, that a guy somewhere, is going to be working his ass off for us.
Why is this separation of our roles wrong ? ? ?
OK – I want to the chance to have a career and professional satisfaction, but I know that to have a happy family I will need a guy to make it possible, and in return, I will make a happy family life possible for him also.
If feminism, is about equality, then surely it is about the equality of each person’s contribution to the family and not just money or status.
I do not know the answer. Honestly, I do not . . . I am only asking the question that many girls my age are asking. Please do not be condescending or cruel . . . please help me find the answer.
All the confusion I feel is captured and somehow resolved in this track.
I like this track as it starts with the girl feeling weak . . .but she grows stronger as the track goes on and it ends with her being powerful . . .but somehow still feminine.
I will not translate the words as I think it is more powerful and true if you just shut your eyes and go on the journey with her.
