  4. To women with daughters
    hoping to raise subservient
    domestic slaves:

    Hand your daughter
    a hammer
    before you give her
    a kitchen knife.

    Or better yet,
    let her choose
    her own weapon.

    Teach her how to
    manage a bank account
    before you enlist her
    to domestic service.

    Do
    not
    leave
    the
    dishes
    for
    her.

    Equip her
    with a strong voice,
    so that she may
    speak over
    those who may feel
    they know
    her place better
    than she does.

    So no one
    can make her
    decisions for her.

    Allow her to choose:
    her own colours,
    her own way,
    her own likings.

    She may not like
    dresses after all,
    what’s the harm?

    Encourage her
    to be independent,
    to pursue her dreams.

    You were not born
    believing that your
    body is a factory,
    so why would
    you impose the idea
    on one of your own?

    If you tell your daughter
    that she is
    in any way
    less than a man,
    the problem is that
    she will eventually
    believe you.

    I don’t usually discuss the story behind a piece of writing, but this one stands out.

    My parents had a few families over for dinner recently and I wanted to help in the kitchen to the best of my ability. So I was putting clean dishes away, clearing out the ones from inside the sink, etc.

    As I did this, one of the ladies said to me from behind me: “It’s wonderful that you’re helping your mother out, but don’t you dare do this when you’re married, or else your wife will never do any work! ”

    It could have been a joke, but it wasn’t. Because she proceeded to cite examples of wives who did not do “what they were supposed to do.” Essentially, she was telling me that it’s perfectly fine to help my mother in the kitchen, but unacceptable to do the same for my wife when I’m married.

    The problem with this is that she has two young daughters of her own, and she is raising them with this backwards mentality that men should be excluded from domestic work simply on the basis of biology, which is completely unacceptable.

    Boys aren’t princes and girls aren’t slaves. There is nothing more special about a man which puts him above a woman. There is something incredibly wrong with this mentality, the fact that it persists and is being instilled into children from a young age.
