What I like least about being a woman / Weekend Experiences - Week 137
Greetings dear readers!
I hope you had a nice Sunday, to end my week I would like to share my participation in the challenge that @galenkp brings us this time and I must thank my friend @kristal24 for inviting me, as the theme of the weekend I have chosen to talk about what I like being a woman less, which undoubtedly has its disadvantages in many areas of life, here I talk about it.
Being a woman in other times could be a challenge due to being considered the weaker sex, which brings with it an endless number of stereotypes that condemn us for being women, luckily, these are other times and the stereotypes to define women have changed, however, there are still people with thoughts that are somehow "discriminatory" when referring to women and that is precisely what I have had to experience on different occasions despite being in the 21st century where assumes that both genders should be seen as equals.
Being a woman has its advantages but also its disadvantages and although I really like being a woman and all that this implies, there are certain things that I don't like about my gender and that is why I have decided to talk about this topic, with the main complaint being discrimination of which I have been a victim on many occasions just for being that, a woman. It happened to me a lot at university, because I decided to study a career considered "difficult" and which in turn was mostly studied by men, even so, it was the career that I enrolled in and from which I actually graduated despite the fact that many thought that I would not be able to do it and also that I would not be able to pursue my career because I would have limitations such as not being suitable for a job of this type because I am a woman, something that really sounds very ugly.
Many times society tries to impose things on us and divide us into genders when in reality women are capable of doing many things just like men, during my student days I helped many of my classmates and several of them were men, I got to join in team with several of them where I was doing all the work and of course I got better grades, which clearly indicates that being a woman is not an impediment to any university career, because, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman, you cannot be a good student if you do not You dedicate yourself to studying, it's that simple.
There are also other experiences lived with family and friends, where many times I felt excluded or I was determined to do something just because I was a woman, household chores such as cleaning, cooking and washing are seen as activities for women and that is what many times I had to do at home while the men (my father and brothers) were there doing nothing), in meetings with friends I was excluded on different occasions for wanting to be alone among men even though they were all friends, but anyway, they are things that have happened to me but that instead of weakening me they have made me believe that we are stronger than women if we can with everything but that unfortunately they underestimate us.
As I mentioned at the beginning, I really like being a woman, I like my gender, but there are things that I dislike, but not because of me, but because of the bad perspective that others have towards the female gender and that, even if I don't want it, they impose things on us according to our gender, I do not consider myself a feminist, but I would like my gender to be more respected and less discriminated against.

Discrimination seems to be the way of the world these days, and whilst it's getting better in some respects, there's room for improvement. Discrimination against anyone, for gender, colour, religion, physical attributes or whatever the the reason isn't acceptable; I suppose we just have to do the right thing individually, and if enough do it things will move forward.
Discrimination happens to men also, I'm not sure in your county, but certainly in others. It's just as wrong as discriminating against a woman, but I guess, all we can do is move forward, design and create the best life we can, and be the best person we can be. I believe that will help us have better and more fulfilled lives.
Hello, you are right, there is discrimination in many ways and it always seems to find a reason to pray against someone for something, without a doubt this also goes against men and it is definitely not acceptable in any case, we must be more tolerant and stop meddling in the lives of others, everyone can be and believe in what they want and no one should have the right to comment on it and less against them
I think it's also wise for an individual to choose different thoughts and attitudes and to find ways to negate the power someone else's thought or action has over them. Many people breathe life into the actions, opinions and thoughts others have rather than just letting them fall away like the unimportant things they are.
Exactly, we should all be free to believe what we please as well as decide on our own life, but the most important thing is not to discriminate against anyone for any aspect of their life

Greetings friend @mariajcastro28, first let me tell you that they are very nice photos that accompany your post. A beautiful cause.
I understand what you tell us, there are many things they say we are not able to do. But we are the ones who have to make it clear that we can and not be intimidated by anyone.
We are all valuable women and men, each one of us makes our own future.
Hello, thank you very much for reading, the photos seemed the most appropriate for this post because of the subject I am talking about. You are very right, it is up to us to show what we are capable of and that nothing stops us from doing what we want and what we like, gender should not be a problem to achieve our goals
Also...You need to read the guidelines of this concept and get them right to be considered an entry.
I understand, thanks for the suggestion, I'll read them to make my next entry correctly, thanks.
