What is/was my definition of womanhood

In many cultures the concept of womanhood is not very well understood.  Almost 30 years later, since I first stepped foot to the States as a teenager, I am still marveled by how confusing gender roles are; especially within certain cultures.

What does being a woman mean to you?

To me it means being a compassionate mom, having the privilege to use my sexuality to produce offsprings , be a caring wife, look feminine, doll up, look good, be flirtatious and strive to achieve the socially accepted “gorgeous” look for someone my age, spend tons of money on cosmetic products, play the role of a “good wife”,  act  that I am always happy in my marriage, at times shut my mouth as to not inadvertently offend my male coworkers! be the voice of reason…

Today I have a different definition of what womanhood means to me. I no more care to fit the social norms.

Let’s talk about an example of a gender stereotype that just does not apply to your life anymore.

I was a horrid cook and my In-laws made sure that I understood that when we first got married. I still hate cooking, but today I enjoy being served the delicious food my husband makes me. Him and my In-laws still boast about their amazing culinary skill! Good for them and even better for meIMG_20200328_172622_974

Phi Quyền Chính - Anarchism: The Tao Of Anarchy

The Tao of Anarchy: There is no God. There is no State. They are all superstitions that are established by the power-hunger psychopaths to divide, rule, and enslave us. It's only you and me, we are all true and real existence though in one short life. That is, We all are capable to freely interact with one another without coercion from anyone. We all are capable to take self-responsibility to find ways to live with one another in liberty, equality, harmony, and happiness before leaving this world forever. We all were born free and equal among all beings on this planet. We are not imprisoned in and by a place with a political name just because we were born there by bio-accident and social-chance. We are not chained to a set of indoctrinated beliefs that have been imposed upon us by so-called traditions. This Planet is home to all of us. No one owns it. We share the benefits from and responsibility to this Earth. We pledge no oath, no allegiance to no one; submit to no authority. We are all free and equal. The only obligation we all must undertake constantly with consistency is to respect the same freedoms and rights of others.
