It’s not your fault, Girls!

It all starts from scratch. From when you’re born into something as small as a family and go on to be a part of something much larger, like the world!
You’re born in a place where gender roles are predetermined by society.You’re given Barbies to play with, since cars are reserved for the baby boy. And ofcourse you’ll be given Ken, who’s the one Barbie has to marry. So what if you don’t want Barbies! The decision is already made for you

You’re made to wear slips and tights inside everything open and frilly even before you hit puberty because its something your mother wants you to follow on a daily basis, so much so it becomes a habit. She does that partly because she was made to do the same.

You’re supposed to bring a glass of water to Daddy after he gets home, while he sits with your brother explaining the market to him.

Mommy says. ” Show more respect to Daddy by using words like ‘aap’ whereas you can call me absolutely anything you please, since I want you feel ‘closer’ to me.” Why isn’t she valuing herself just as much? The point is to respect elders or is it solely respecting the male gender now?

You’re asked to maintain a distance from members of the opposite sex once you hit puberty, because your recent developments might just be spotted! Trouble in paradise!

All of us, as teenagers are kept away from the Other, thereby creating a novelty factor in each of our minds, which is the root cause of any kind of sexual harassment.

As we grow up, we’re reminded every now and then, that we’re women and there’s only so much we’re allowed to do!

We’re asked to come back early even if we’re at work regardless of where we want to Be on the career front. Why can’t we Want to be independant?
Why can’t we want?

Why is it that we’re told to not leave the house after a particular ‘safe’ hour, while we see our brothers getting home at 3 and 4 a.m.

Why define more and more safety precautions for women when you can definitely teach your son better?

Keep your son at home, re define right’s and wrong’s for him and yourself! How about grounding your son and allowing your daughter to live freely!

Let me remind you girls, Rape is not YOUR fault! Any kind of sexual assault is not your fault. Even if you were wandering alone at 3 am in a short skirt and low neck top, it was NOT your fault!

Wanting to live your life the way you please is not too much to ask for!
Don’t get bound by the senseless rules made for mass control which society creates for you. Break free. It’s okay to Want.

Do not let society make you question your self worth or the values inculcated in you. Only you define who you want to be, what you want to wear, where you want to go, who you want to meet. No one else should do it for you!Each one of us deserves to live the kind of life we choose for ourselves

Through Indecisive Decisions, I talk about those little things in life that most of us don't pay heed to. Any sea facing place, coffee and a book is all I need : )
