What I’ve Learned From Men
Sometimes i think the reason why men and woman have boundary and respect issues is because women don’t see what men see. What men see when they look at a female is a different experience than when a women looks in the mirror for example. The woman doesn’t see the beauty she possesses. but men do. I think women have learned to detach themselves from their bodies from years of accumulating insecurities. When they see breasts in the mirror they do not see what men see when they see breasts. But for me, my skin is my clothes. I know that I am in this body and have been and will be so I better learn to love it and on the way I found this. This is where I’ll be. I think we can learn something from men here and realize the reason they can seem so crude and over bearing.
But i don’t think it’s wrong to think that there are men out there who can control it. well not control it but own it and take responsibility for it and maybe chivalry can be reborn. While women should learn to overcome insecurities and embrace the beauty they possess and it is nothing to be ashamed of. Overall resentment is built ( or projected onto the opposite sex ) and that is what we are trying to prevent by understanding and loving ourselves more.
Sometimes I think women should learn more about men and then realize we can only control ourselves in the end. The more we understand men, the more we are able to see and understand our part in the dynamic. Just like they need to understand woman better. It’s a two way street. And we can’t deny nature, because then we deny ourselves. I’m only skimming the surface here, but that is a story for another time.
