There was a time when the birth of daughter was considered ominous , well there are no specific reasons and the birth of a son was considered auspicious. Well today its a mixed feeling for both of them, women no doubt today are given enough respect wherever they go .They have reservations, common practice to vacate a seat when a girl is standing and many more. Today they are ahead of us in many spheres of life or may be walking head to head and there is one area where women have completely overpowered men ! strange but that’s the fact, and its none other than fashion ,in their outlook and in their lifestyle.
Consider fashion for example almost all outfits of men are now used by women be it jeans, T-Shirts,shoes in fact some of the big brands like Levis and Pepe manufactures exclusive clothes for them. Jeans which was a trade mark of men earlier are now common outfit for women and with no surprise they are happily accepted by society, but have you ever seen a boy in a girl’s outfit be it skirt ( leave the English pipe men ), or for the matter take it sandal. I guess no one has ever dared to try them, or they will create their own mockery. Today many corporate women wear suits to give a professional attire, while when they wear sari we say they continue to be traditional while living in western culture.So its a mix match and well accepted by society.
Talking in terms of their outlook and lifestyle women no doubt are seen as symbol of coolness, silence and elegance and boys are just opposite ( haa haa , its true ), watching a boy smoking gives a sort of negative impression however a girl doing the same is considered her high society status ( the concepts fits in metros only ).
Few men walking together is said to be a gang where as for gals its a group, well the reason is still unknown. Men speeding their bike is said to be against traffic rule while girls are considered uber kool while going above 60km/hr . Men whistling at girl said to be cheap while its ok for a girl to indulge themselves in eve teasing when they find a charming or handsome guy.If a gal pukes in a bar she is unwell and if a guy does the same everybody taunts that he doesn’t know his limits.
This is not the end of it, imagine a situation in a movie hall, if a girl shouts and says that the man is disturbing her, with in a fraction of second the whole mob becomes her brother and will start thrashing you like Adam Gilchrist thrashed bowlers. In our school days when a boy use to do a mistake be it a small one , he was punished severely by the teachers on the other hand the girl was just given a warning.
The story continues , I don’t say that its only girls everywhere there are instances where boys have monopoly like late night outing from home etc. but still I would say that there are some serious injustice done to boys.
Guess this edition of Outofbox would not compel any guy to challenge girls or at least wear any of the girl’s outfit ( haahaa plzzzzzz don’t dare to it ).
