#Stereotypes๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ‘š๐Ÿฅ˜

Hello dear readers! Welcome back to the New World Order. Today I am going to be talking about something we all just say with ease but never give much thought to it. I am going to be talking about stereotypes. How women are stereotyped as the care giver of a new born baby. Of what I have been told in my growing up years that when I was born my father was the first one to change my diapers in fact my mother did not change my diapers for 48 hours (She was getting highly pampered by the whole family and recovering from a C-Section) as my father wanted to be involved in everything possible, more so, even my first bath was given by my dad ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›

So in this millennial generation where women are as ambitious as men, and where men are as hands on fathers as their spouse, I think, stereotyping is kind of a passey, however it is still prevalent in the society. For example we have heard it for the longest time that boys are better than girls at sports, which I think is completely baseless. I am not saying that boys are not good but what I am trying to say is that girls are as good at sports as boys. You don’t believe me…? Heard of Mary Kom, Sania Mirza, Saina Nehwal, P.V Sindhu, PT Usha and Hima Das? Please don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to offend the men and I am not trying to say that they are any less, but all I am trying to say is that girls are no less than boys either in sports. There is a stereotype, that shooting is a sport associated with men. On one end we have Abhinav Bindra ace shooter, and on the other end we have the Tomar Dadi’s. Two old ladies, who broke the stereotype of men in shooting and the stereotype of age (They started shooting at the age of 60- It is never too late to begin/learn something new) by representing the country and winning medals.

#Revolver dadi and the Shooter dadi

You know, before the lockdown, when I was out for a walk, I saw an absolutely adorable baby wearing a pink t-shirt. A woman came up to the child and said,” Aww she’s so cute!” the mother smiled and responded,” it’s actually a boy”. The women asked her out of shear confusion,”Then why have you dressed him up in pink?” and the mother just replied by saying,”Because it looks cute on him..?”. So this small episode took me back to Australia, when a handsome looking man was walking down the beach wearing a pink t-shirt (absolutely unforgettable)…..Can you guess who he is? Well of course he is our very own, Hrithik Roshan! Being feminine is not a bad thing, most people be like we don’t like pink because it is a girly colour, but you like what you like and you wear what suits you.

Pink Doesn’t Define You!

Also, here’s another very common thing I have noticed and it is, that only women are associated with cooking and kitchen skills. The fact is that most of the chefs in hotels are men! One of my favorite chefs who works at Holiday Inn Agra, Mr. Prashant Goel makes amazing, mouth-watering delicacies. He is amongst the thousands of chefs who work in the hotel industry and represent the men folk. So not only do women have great culinary skills, so do men and they turn their culinary skills into profession. Now, I can write another blogs on the same topic as the examples are inumerable. However readers, I would like you to drop in a stereotype example that you have come across in the comment section below.

We all may have different religions, different languages, but we all belong to one race; the human race. I would like to end my saying, labels are for clothes and not for us humans. Until then folks stay safe!

  2. Very well written Jiya. Another Stereotype which I encounter at work is… That room cleaning/Bed Making is associated with women but if you see in my field of work it is dominated by Men. I believe Men and Women are equal in every sphere. There is nothing a women cant achieve in fact I think they are better at Leadership!!!!

  4. Nice facts and fresh contents Jiya, even I came to know few new facts shared by you and which are truly motivational.
    In context of stereotype example and which is very common that women drivers in commercial segment, this sphere also need attention where we can see skills and confidence of women is at par as if men driving the commercial/heavy vehicle.
    Keep writing ๐Ÿ–‹

  5. Wow Jiya! Simply awesome . Loved reading it…you echo the same thoughts as mine. I also feel women should join more workforce in all spheres and break the stereotypes of gender roles in workplaces.

  6. Jiya, your article is worth reading. Actually there is no difference between girls and boys, this is a wrong notion that boys do better. Girls and boys these days are doing equally well. In certain fields girls are doing better than boys. I remember when you were born, that gave us more pleasure than getting a boy. We should treat them equally. Keep writing, keep it up. Love nani
