Hi there, I’m Shion, a blogger(@co13n).
I posted an article about gender, but I want to reach it to the world. Now I’m translating it from Japanese into English by myself.
Original article in Japanese
Before I write it, I’ll show you my gender.
- Biological sex: male
- Gender identity: male
- Sexual orientation: female
I am a straight person.
Do it. You are man, right?
That makes me angry
and like these following…
- “Man have to have a car”
- “Don’t you watch baseball games?”
- “Japanese men have to be 〜”
Usually I was told those by men…
I was feeling like I was told I was not man and that hurt me bad.
I feel like I was told your biological sex is completely different from your action.
But I think “action” don’t have any kinds of sex.
Even straight people like me hate those words and LGBT people feel worse.
Not only LGBT peple but straight people suffer from gender discrimination.
FEMINISM Is Not Man-Hating
When talking about feminism, some men criticize it and mistake it for man-hating.
BUT IT’S NOT!!
Emma Watson explains what feminism is in this video.
feminism by definition is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.
the more I have spoken about feminism the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating.
She told feminism is not man-hating that women should receive preferential treatments and drug men down, but men and women have to be treated equally.
Adding my opinion to this,
I hope everyone in the world will take it not as man and woman things but as human’s.
No matter what gender you have, anyone could be suffering from the discrimination.
You might hurt someone and you might be hurt by someone without realizing.
Take it not as man and woman things but as human’s.
