Interesting but in a way by categorizing traditional female behaviors as wrong is also harmful. Why do I have to be strong just to defy stereotypes?

We should not be limited by what society expects of us but I am not offended by societal expectations. I care about women having equal opportunities to healthcare, education, and leadership roles. But I don’t like how as feminists we often condemn traditional feminism.

I hate getting shots. I’m not going to cry about it but I won’t feel offended if they thought I would. Men have the hangup of not wanting to be called or seen as weak but I don’t mind. I was one of two women lifeguards who passed the test and it was because I wanted the role. Them not seeing me capable of it did not stop me.

Sorry for the ramblings about feminism. Thanks for writing this.
