Women are beautiful and delicate creature, originally born to be loved, respected and honoured. And yet, how many times have we heard, or seen women being degraded, violated and insulted just because they are weaker sex?
The news of women being violated can be seen every day on any form of communication medium, be it in the print or electronic. We see news of women from all age and skin colour getting raped by people that they trust, or people that they know every day. We also see wives being violated by their husbands just because they are women and their male counterpart had a mindset that women supposed to be submissive to their husbands.
Women are not slaves, and yet we cannot seems to erased the thinking that women nothing but a creature created by God to be used by men strictly for their pleasure in bed, for handling domestic chores as well as a punching bags when men are not satisfied with whatever went wrong in their daily lives and have the need to hit their women to release stress. Some man feels good and more masculine after hitting and violating the weaker sex over and over again, but the question here is, is this right? When a woman says no to being abused and violated, why is it her voices are deliberately ignored? Why can’t what the women said be heard? What is actually suppressing women’s voice all over the world?
In many part of the world, women are treated like a property. A property of men. When they are a child, they are the property of their father or any male relative if her father is already dead. Then they grew up and become an adolescent and when their family think that their age is right to be send away as someone’s wife, women get married and became the property of their husbands. When her husband died, she became a property of her son(s) or any living male relative’s property and she is expected to submit to their wimps just because she is of a weaker sex. Is this right, dear readers? Is this a right way to treat a women?
In some religion and society, women are taught not to express their pleasure in bed during their conjugal union(sex lah, people *roll eyes*). Women are expected to timidly lie down, and accept whatever her husband or partner wants to do to her and stare at the ceiling until it’s over. And so comes this question…is a woman made of flesh and blood and have feelings or she’s made of a log and wigs that she is expected not to express any feelings during her sexual intercourse?
In some countries, even Malaysia, girls who usually belongs to a Muslim families are expected not to express pleasure in bed when they grow up and become someone’s wife too. Yours truly said this because it’s a fact then when most of a Muslim baby girls are born, they are taken to a midwife who is experienced in performing the removal of clitoris and snip that part away. Some families may wait until the girl grew up to be three or four years of age to mutilate their genital. All of this are done because they believed that by doing so, the girl will not be able to achieve orgasms during her sexual intercourse. It signify ultimate control of men in bed over the woman in question.
And yet in truth, God apparently created the clitoris for the sole purpose of generating pleasure. It has no other purpose. There is no instructions in the Holy Quran or in the writings of the Prophet Muhammad which require that the clitoris be surgically modified. God must have approve of its presence. It should not be removed or reduced in size or function.The Quran promotes the concept of a wife being given pleasure by her husband during sexual intercourse. Mutilated genitalia reduces or eliminates a women’s pleasure during the act. So why the hell men are violating the rights of a woman by disallowing and denying her pleasure in bed? Does this make men more macho and masculine?
Women’s rights and women’s voice are being taken away from them ever since they are a child in most society. It is men who actually suppressed women’s voice everywhere by silencing them when they are still a child. This should be change, shouldn’t it? Women are actually your mother, your grandmother, your wife, your sister, your daughter. They are the people who play very important role in your lives. Without them, you will not be here reading this article. They are your family, and family members should be protected and not abused. Their voice should be heard, and not silenced! Respect and honour your mother, love and cherish your wife, protect your daughters and sisters. Let their voice be heard by listening to them. Say no to abuse and violence against women.
In the modern society, women not only play a role as your family member or your caregiver, they also play very important role in nation building. Modern women are quite liberated and capable in doing whatever men do. (heck, even our bank governor is a woman, without her signature on our ringgit, do you honestly think that the money you have in your wallet have any value?)They have career and contribute large sum of money to the country through income tax. By this fact alone, the society should start recognizing women’s contribution to the country and pay some respect to us women, and yet, everyday, we hear women being abused and violated as well as exploited. Stop violence against women. We are not living a a dark age anymore, so why should we continue to treat women as if we are living in that era?
