When you sit in a metro or a bus, I see how unwillingly you have to give up your seats just because a woman didn’t get one. No you don’t have to give me your seat because I know that you too are a human and you too get tired of standing and that although I have seats reserved for my gender, you don’t. Don’t worry, I can stand, just like you do, always. Equality is this for me.
When we go on a date, I’ll make sure the bill is split into two, equally. Your money does not come for free, nor does mine. You put in the same effort to earn those currencies like I do. So when we both are having the food, on what logic should you pay alone ? We’ll share. Equality is this for me.
When we are in a relationship, you are always expected to be loyal. And you do (except for a few). But our gender can cheat too right? We do break your hearts right? We too play with your feelings right? RIGHT. So when I ask you to be loyal, I’ll promise my loyalty to you as well. This is equality for me.
When we are amidst something really emotional, or when you are sad, I have seen you holding back your tears, or else you fear your masculinity will be questioned. No, not with me. I’ll give you my shoulder to cry on, just like you do, always, and at times, we’ll cry together. I won’t judge you. Since you are always asked to be more emotional, you must get the freedom to express your emotions freely. This is equality for me.
I won’t go around shouting for dominance, captioned as equality by posting half nudes and shaming you or even by abusing you or posing false allegations against you. I will accept the fact that my gender does commit mistakes and my gender is equally at fault as you are and that nowhere are we the victims alone. I won’t play the victim card and I won’t play the female card to get attention. I will work equally hard, just like you and compete with you and win by my own talents and then call it GODDAMN equality.
