Indeed, why? Why do people treat us like a bimbo? Well, women, friends and foes alike are going to bash me for this, but I still have to state my honest opinion on what I think about women, especially Malaysian women in general.
I know March is International Women’s Month, but I’m not going to preach about women’s rights and why people should respect women. I am more than sure, most of you know that, and a majority of you out there has done that on my behalf.
This entry is not meant to degrade women, but is written in hope that women all over the country would realize why sometimes people treat us women like a bimbo- a creature of the weaker sex who are incapable of intelligent conversation.
So, why indeed? Why do men treat us women like bimbos, and not many are interested in listening to what we have to say? My take is that in Malaysia, there is not much women who takes time to enrich their mind with intellectual material, and therefore, not many women came up with intelligent conversation. Not many women in Malaysia bothers to read about law or even bothers about our political surroundings. What’s worst, most don’t even bother to read news anymore ever since they left school.
Most would say that Malaysian politics is crappy, and not worth their regard, thinking that there is no point talking about things that they cannot change. True… but then again, you made no effort to be the person who change it.
Most would choose to shy away from economic discussion, as it’s a difficult topic to grasp. Some would say…talking about serious matters gives them headache, and they prefers to be blissfully ignorant, and instead of exhibiting themselves as someone worth to be respected, most prefer to portray themselves as an empty headed person, who usually talks about nothing but trivial matters and gossips concerning the affair of others.
It saddens me to think that many Malaysian women are not concern about the nation building issue. Most of us are still chained and shackled by our own mindset, where we should not concern ourselves with ‘difficult’ matters and we should do nothing but let the men handle those ‘difficult’ stuff for us, and our job is just to enjoy life while men go around, working to dominate the world. With thoughts like this, it is not a wonder that Malaysia is still very much a conservative and chauvinistic country.
I really do wonder why women in Malaysia are given the rights to vote in the first place. Most of you are voters. Those who would determine the future of our country by casting your vote, and yet you have not a care about Malaysian politics and whatnot. It disgust me.
It disgust me to the very core when I hear these from the mouth of women, especially from those who are blue collars :
“Aiyah… nonid to care about politics… Malaysian politics are very boring.”
“Haiyorr, simply vote lah, both oso same oni.”
“Why should I care about the law? Not for me lah!”
It terrifies me to note that Malaysia is made of these kind of people, who happens to be voters as well. Those who are responsible of voting and whatnot. Malaysia is full of empty headed women who will remain the same, and would do nothing to change that just because they are someone’s girlfriend, someone’s wife, or someone’s mother, and thinks that taking care of their male counterpart, nurturing their offspring as well as gossiping about others is much more fulfilling than enriching themselves with awareness and knowledge about the country and the world.
There’s nothing wrong about spoiling the spouse and nurturing the children, but don’t you think it is too much when such things could actually turn us into a dumb bimbo bitch when we decided to just live in our own little world, and chooses to be ignorant of serious matters?
Whether it is too much or not, it is up to you to decide. To me, it is too much, definitely too much. Knowledge, to me, is something that I must pursue throughout my entire life, not something that I must stop injecting into my brain once I left school.
People treat women like a bunch of dumb bimbo bitch, because most of us portrays ourselves that way. One rotten apple, spoils the whole barrel. Ladies, either stop thinking like a dumb bimbo bitch, or you’ll forever be branded that way. If you want people to respect you, then by all means, start respecting yourself instead of portraying yourself as the dumber sex, for God’s sake!
Cleffairy:Ladies…most of you maybe typical females who cannot read a map, but that should not stop you from learning how to use the GPS.
