They say #DontMancriminate. I say I don't! All I say is, #DontSteerHerType.
When I say I need empowerment,
All I want is to be independent;
When I say I need love and care,
Why do you feel I am weak or spare?
What's so wrong if you could help me when it needs physical strength?
Didn't you ask for milk from a female when your life began?
What's so silly if you hold my bags while I am shopping?
When you win a cricket match, don't I go all mad and hopping?
Isn't it alright if I sometimes ask you to wear a shirt of my choice?
Don't I let my hair loose just because you say it looks nice?
Why so disturbed if occasionally I get things for free?
Why forget, 90% of the times, the person who cooks for you is me!
You give me half of your savings when I become your wife,
When you become my husband, don't I devote to you my entire life?
You think pulling a door for me is really very hard?
Harder than it is for me to push you so your life can start?
Don't blame me for anything unless you know what's on my mind,
I am just asking for some understanding, you don't have to take the pressure of being kind!
And if you no more want to be gentle with me,
Please tell me what would you like to be?
Cuz I am not joking thee, and it's seriously choking me,
How can I not respect 'MAN' for you see,
I always remember I address 'GOD' with a 'HE'.
So, please don't steer her type! Just don't stereotype!
Place your hand on your heart and answer, don't you expect me to be nice with you? So, can't I expect you to be gentle with me? Aren't expectations pretty obvious in the kind of world that we live in? For this is how the universe functions right?
I am not asking for any sympathy, but I have been discriminated all my life, So trust me when I say this, I won't ever DISCRIMINATE with you for I really know, IT HURTS!
