  1. This is perfect for the prompt Helen =) I love it and I really feel I learned something about you that I did not know truly this is fabulous I am so glad you shared. There are definitely stigmas attached to being male/female

  2. This is most excellent Sis xxx

    I hope you don’t think like a man any more. I’ve seen the way most men think and, to be honest, I’m not even sure that ‘think’ is the right word. ‘Brain grunt’ would be better description in most cases.

    • LOL…I’m not sure there really is a male or female way of thinking…my teacher meant the comment as a compliment, he was saying that, on the basis of an essay I wrote, that I thought logically and wrote with good structure…to him that was thinking like a man…another sign of those particular times, LOL. πŸ™‚

  4. the next generation will see a lot of change in everyway of life, i’m sure of it.
    one of my dads female relatives frown on me for raising my child: only a woman should raise a child lmao, there’s good and bad in each gender, old beliefs will die out if we disprove them. πŸ™‚

  5. Makes one think. I would like to come back in the year 2113 to see how it works out.

    • Yes, it would be fascinating…culture seems to change so slowly while it is happening but then when you look back 20 or 30 years you realise how significant those changes actually are. πŸ™‚

    I believe that most of us in the “older” generation grew up with that mind set…male or female…that was what was believed and accepted. The beautiful part is that over a very short span of 30 or forty years it has changed and changed dramatically because we live in a country and an age that allows wrongs to be changed.or corrected. True, they don’t happen over night, but they are happening here as opposed to other parts of the world where we are very lucky not to live.

    • Very true…I do think it is amazing how much has changed in that period of time, and I definitely agree that earlier generations were taught that mindset…that’s why I don’t blame my family, I just experienced it and learned from it, hopefully. πŸ™‚

    and perhaps i had too…what a close on this…i think sometimes history and generations have to be ready for it…and sometimes whether they are ready or not it is time…and we have to do what we have to do to see the change happen…and still yet it happens…very cool, honest write

    Superbly done and there is much I recognise here.

    I grew up in a generation where a females goal was to be married and have children – that was my goal too. We have progressed and seemingly the world is our oyster – although strictly it is still not, there are invisible yet very visible barriers to advancement…

    In the wider world females remain very much oppressed – their worth being measured in producing children and obedience…
