Discussion Question: Describe some gender inequalities that still exist in your native country.
The discussion question is set here:Saudi Women Seek Right To Drive
Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t see any gender inequalities in our country, Bulgaria I mean. Our women enjoy the same rights as our men (not to mention that in cases of divorce they are unduly privileged – very often the court does not even take into account the characteristics of the particular case). But I just wonder at many of them how they have the strength to work and develop professionally, and at the same time every day to do chores. I, for instance, feel for my wife and suggest to her that I may be the cook at home, but she does not agree (most probably she is afraid that I will prove to be better at cooking than her:)). As for the fears of the men from Saudi Arabia for their wives and for all the women of their country in general, I don’t think that women are less morally resilient than men and it seems to me that behind such understatement is hidden something unhealthy. Women really are fragile creatures (here I immediately think of Serena Williams), but they can have an iron will and I’m even sure that they are required to develop and gradually to acquire such. Of course, it’s perfectly natural men to protect women, however, in the case maybe it is more appropriate to have more stringent measures against men who insult women or urge them to immorality than to be banned all women from driving. Otherwise, I think, a woman who is prone to immorality and adultery will always indulge in this sin – if for no other way, certainly in her thoughts and fantasies. On the other hand, really every single person, whether man or woman, should know himself and avoid these situations that are dangerous for him. But as one woman from Saudi Arabia said, her best guard in such situations was God.
I’m deeply convinced that there is nothing more precious to man than his moral purity, but I also know very well and this that there is no something more difficult to achieve. This process is much more like cutting with a scalpel rather than stroking with a feather. Those who like me are married; they may know that their wives can help them a lot for this. I think that it is just inevitable that your wife will find in another man something important to her that you don’t have, and it really hurts, but if you do understand the meaning of this and find the strength to change yourself, it will definitely make you a better person. Painful, morbid jealousy has nothing to do with normal care for the woman. I’m sure that in normal human relations a woman can receive from another man, not from her husband, what she really needs and this can be done not by adultery. And when we talk about religions, I will say that namely God takes care of that. I’m sorry for those who accept that polygamy is something normal – I can imagine how great suffering brings such thing:)! Because you have to be really selfish and blinded by your pride to think that you can give a woman everything she needs. And a big fool if you think that through violent measures can hide your inability to do this. I personally know very well this state of mind.
By the way, some women also suffer from similar illusions:)!
