Society with No Balance

By Sonam Desai

We have grown up in a world, with the known significance of balance. The balance between right and wrong, the balance between the genders we label ourselves with. Female, male, trans, pan, queer, and bi, are some of the known labels we certify as genders and amongst these, our society is designed. Years and years took for all the other gender categories to equalize with one specific gender, namely “male”. The men in our society since years have been enjoying privileges that were meant to be shared by all. 

Our society never understood the concept of balance, balance for everyone to live as equals, instead we always have been biased and prejudiced when it comes to favouring one more than the other. Years and years have gone by with this inequality, and now when the time was to ask for equality and stabilize the society, we started to ask for more.

The times we lost; we sadly are now asking for revenge hence the chaos. The gender has always been an issue of concern for us, with times we thought we understood the concept but sadly, we do not. Genders are mere labels, but we made them a big deal, and we started a war, a war based on something that doesn’t exist, a word that is not relevant anymore is creating problems for us, henceforth the only way to stop the pseudo-feminism, gender wars, gender biases is to stop giving power to the labels.

To say in a nutshell, individual needs to be empowered irrelevant of what gender box we check out!
