“Be a man!”(Oh! So being a woman is something shameful right?😣)..
“The cave man was a hunter and gatherer..” (So it seems women did not exist that time!Or were women cave wives that time and could not hunt or gather food ??🤣)
Wait! I am sure you must have wondered why am I quoting such random sentences. If you read the first sentence you will surely say it refers to the masculine gender and if you refer the second you will say it refers to human beings in general.
So did you realize? Even the language doesn’t acknowledge the existence of a woman…it rather treats women as special creatures rather than human beings by generalizing humans as men. What can we expect from the society when the language itself is so sexist?
Give it a thought 🙂
