The Unsaid Feelings…

images (2).jpg

 She had to suffer all the scolding and questioning from her parents for coming home a few minutes late.

 When her brother came home at mid-night and nobody minded it. At that moment, she wished “she were a boy.”

I want to ask you all,  “Was there a time or moment in your life,  when you wished you should have been born as a boy or as a girl?”

  2. Oh my god, there have been so many time when I felt like this!!!!!!!!!
    Though I didn’t feel that it would be wonderful if I were a girl or a boy, but I really felt that why boys are supposed to behave manly, excluding the fact they can also he soft hearted… have you watched that short film “boys don’t cry” watch it It’s superb, I’ve never seen such a powerful video on stereotypes…
    Ok, coming back, oh yes, there are so many awesome things only girl are supposed to do (in eyes of the society, though many people are changing)
    I hate these words like ‘girlish’ or ‘boyish’ but then I realize that somewhere it is our fault that we have created a walk like it…
    Sorry for the long comment… haha

    1. I really wanted to know on this subject from a guy’s perspective. The society have made standards for us, the girl should be like this, the boy should be like this…The girl should behaive like and the boy like this.. uff! Let’s just live like the way we want.
      Yes,I agree ,but you know what, ” Mard ko kabhi dard nhi hota”. Lord, god has made them a human too not a robot!. I haven’t watched the movie but I will now. 🙂 🙂
      Hahaha.. I loved reading your long comment. So, please don’t be sorry!! Thank you so much my dear brother for sharing your opinion on this and also for reading!! 🙂 ❤

  3. Luckily I dont feel this with my parents as they r very supportive but then yes if someone has to be blamed for us indian girls to feel this , it should be indians. You see my parents dont have a problem if a boy drops me home or i invite them for my bday party coz lets face it boys r better as a friend that girls. However my neighbours they see me and ask questions. Why cant they mind their own damn business. Secondly yes its unsafe for me to move around late nyt my parents dont doubt me but they r worried about my safety. So let us not blame our parents. Let us make our society safe and secure for us. Lets us not judge girls. Girls who have boys as friends are not slut.
    So yes i have felt it a million times that i should have been a boy and our society is to be blamed for that.

    1. No, you did get a wrong impression from this. I am not blaming anyone here especially not parents, and didn’t intend to hurt anyone’s feelings. It’s natural, Parents do care about their child’s safety be it a girl or a boy. However, The perspective changes when it comes to a girl and it’s a fact especially in an Indian society. The stereotype thinking of the society is the reason, and I think we are on the way to change that. As Gandhi ji said, ” If you want a change, be the change.”
      Thank you so much Amrita for reading and for the opinion on this, I appreciate it very much!! 🙂 🙂

      1. I understand you. But, I have a different opinion about it. It’s just not about going out at night or having a boy as a friend, I have male friends too and my parents are okay with that. It’s about not having as much freedom as a boy has, I hope you’d agree with me on that. Like for instance, girls are supposed to get married by the age of 25, otherwise, they are not considered as singles but unmarried. The status automatically changes.

    1. I agree with you little me and every parent do worry about their child regardless of their gender. It’s not like, that you have to come home early because you are a girl, it’s about there are different standards that has been set by the society for the males and females. And if you don’t follow them, that is just not not acceptable. I hope you understand me. Thanks for reading and sharing your opinion about it! I really appreciate that!! 🙂 🙂

  4. Not particularly but yes sometimes there is a point when we all felt, whether we accept it or not. But definitely not for any nightout issue as my brother and me have mutual friends and they too are daughter/son of my father’s friend. So there is not any problem in that case. But yes, sometimes I definitely get jealous of my little young brother, when dadi bua favours him.

  5. I grew up a tomboy, but never really wanted to be a boy. The only time I wanted to be a boy was because I got really, really, really painful cramps when I was younger (before getting on birth control). Otherwise being a girl is fine for me!

      1. Hmm, I don’t think I was treated any differently. I definitely acted differently, much more aloof and I wanted people to see me as tough! Not mean, just tough. Like the “strong, tough woman” in movies, you know? I tended to get along with and hang out with boys more often too, cuz girls didn’t usually do what I liked (like play video games and run around all recess and lunch). Whenever I made female friends, they’ve been gamers and/or tomboys like me 🙂 Still true to this day haha!

        Bless you, too. Your excitement is adorable 😊

      1. I was young when my mom passed honey and raised mostly by my dad and brothers..youngest of 9 and 6 of them boys! haha! my 2 sisters much older than me they were already off married having babies when I came along so I have had a lot of experience with the double standard thing and I never wished I was one of them actually what happened was I became better for it..I was determined from a very young age as Im sure you can imagine 😀 by the time I was into my teens my dad knew I was strong…now I can look back and realize that sometimes we really are tested not to uncover weakness or to make us feel bad but to discover our strengths ❤ The truth is having to build my own self esteem I ended up with more will power and ability than all of my brothers combined so I am thankful for any hard times I might have endured….if this is what you are going through trust me one day in the not so distance future you will see just what I mean and feel thankful. You are stronger than you know sweet girl!! XO!!

    1. Yeah, I agree Parents get worried and easily get scared when it comes to a girl. It is a shame for us, that they feel like this. “It’s not safe for a girl to go out at night”, I think if some people can make it unsafe for us, then we are capable enough to make it safe for ourselves. Thanks for the read and sharing your opinion on this, I appreciate that!!

  6. Yes I wanted to be a girl many times.
    When my sisters have so much to say to my mom and I hardly have anything to share.
    I feel girls are more expressive. How easily they get connected to their father. Yes a few parents are still there who don’t realize the importance of their daughter.. but whatever, so many incidences these days make them worried so this behavior from parents can be understood. But trust me, I remember getting “pitai” 👊👊👋👋(scolding or whatever …) More often than my sisters.
    I do even remember my mom calling my sister as Lakshmi mata ka avatar. And everyone wants money, so wanting to be a girl is quite natural 😍😍
    Hope u understood !!! 😄😄

    1. I agree! Girls are more expressive than boys. Tell me the reason yaar, why don’t you guys share your feelings more often? Yes, every parent gets worried about their child be it a girl or a boy, it’s natural. But in case of a girl, they get worried and somewhat scared too.. that is a matter of shame that they feel like that! and of course, the society, “chaar log kya kahenge”
      Girls are their father’s princess! ❤ ❤

      Hahaha…The fact is, Ladke zyada galtiyan karte hai, isliye zyada pitai khate hai 😀 😀 😛

  7. Discrimination on one’s gender is the most enormous elephant in our room(here, country.). I mean, being a man or a woman isn’t going to change the fact that you are a human and have the same limitations the other does. A woman shouldn’t be seen as the weaker gender, which always happens in our societies. I don’t favour feminism, nor do I favour sexism. *Sigh* I’m happy to be what I was born as, and I wish everyone else is, too. Aur waise bhi “Log kya kahenge” se hume kya hai lena dena?

    1. Agreed! Discrimination still exists and first you’re just a human not a man or a woman. But sadly, the limitations or restrictions are not the same for both till this day even. I mean, you must have known there are some things that only men are supposed to do or things that only women are supposed to do and also, and the so called norms of the society. *Uff*. Let us live the way we want to. Of course,the fact is log kya kahenge isi se sabko sabse zyada dena hai, apne life ke baare mein bhi decision yahi soch ke lete hai ki chaar log kya kahenge and I still don’t know till now who those “chaar log” are.

  8. Not many of the times. The grace and thoughtfulness which we girls have, we could never be able to enjoy and cherish them if we were a boy. I don’t know about others but I personally love it. 😉
    But there have been times when I did think so. Times when I wish I could roam around streets at night, or wear whatever I want, or yes of course during menstruation. These incidents make me wonder sometimes. But that is for some small moment.
    Other than that even in my next birth as human, if choice given, I would like to get back on Earth as a girl only. 😉 🙂

  10. Both times I have read this I had the same memory about a night in 1981….I started to tell you about it when I first read this but I deleted it and said whatever I said…lol….the experience makes me feel embarrassed for all kinds of reasons but most especially I feel embarrassed for people prejudice against women and other races….
    I was in Cape Town South Africa in 1981….a group of friends and I were going out on the town and to dinner….we arrived at the restaurant excited to be eating together but there was a sign on the door that said “Women and Black’s Not Allowed”
    Thankfully the guy’s in our dinner party wouldn’t go in if 1/2 of us could not go in…
    We wondered on and found an outstanding restaurant where we could all eat….We had a wonderful time….but….had my girlfriends and I been a boy’s we could have eaten there….I only wanted to be a boy that one time…lol….and very briefly

    1. “Women and Black’s Not Allowed” this is ridiculous!! I mean what kind of rule is that? I think, if anyone should be embarrassed it should be them, who support it. Your skin colour and gender don’t define you!!
      Thanks for sharing this incident! I got to see what women had to go through at that time. And you can share anything with me, you dont need to think twice!! 😊😊 God bless you always!!😊😊

      By the way, may I know your name?

    But apart from this, I want to ask that dont we girl enjoy perks as well? Although am ready to give up on them for equality and if safety is ensured.

    1. Hey! How’re you?? It’s been so long…. 😃
      Haha… Luckily, my parents too! And when it comes to safety … I think every parent is concerned about their child’s safety, be it a boy or a girl… though, the reasons differ…..
      Hahaha.. perks ha? Don’t boys enjoy the perks too?? Let’s not get in detail… And if we talk about equality…have you travelled in a bus? There’re seats reserved for ladies I have seen a lady giving her seat to a man and I have also seen a lady , telling an old man to get off of the seat… so equality is just a topic for a debate and nothing else!!!!! Btw you still didn’t answer the question!! Though, it’s a blessing to be a girl.. but still have you ever wished to be born as a boy at any point of time in your life??
