Being a girl can become a difficult life style. Between our stages in life, staggering attitudes and emotions… I don’t know how we would get through it.
I myself am a girl, born and raised as one; so I know first hand that I can be very frail and take many chances. I’m also the target for a lot of people, for emotional support and other things. My parents depend a lot on me to take care of things when they can’t, especially because I'm the only girl.
I recall my 5th grade classroom, the desks were set up in rows of six, and I sat in the middle row, of a large room filled with an average sized class. And that’s where he sat, right there in front of me; now being a female in a male bias world I found that most guys don’t expect you to know how to fight. And that’s where he made his mistake. His name was Tommy and he tried to take my pencil, this might not seem like a big deal now but ever since I was younger, I had an “obsessive compulsive disorder” type of thing; I absolutely positively could not stand to have people touching my things, or things that I had previously touched. So I asked him kindly to please not touch my things…he didn’t quite listen. He continued to grab for my book bag when I told him again “DO NOT TOUCH MY THINGS” I was getting madder and he didn’t seem to comprehend the level of seriousness displayed in my threatening tone. “Shut up” he snapped back at me “don’t be a tattle tale”. “I wont,” I said through my teeth “but stop touching my things” with an angry shove, he pushed me. In rebuttal, I shoved him back.
Ever since my early days of childhood, I had always been a fighter. I had to fight to get where I was going, and I learned that a lot of people are really big bullies and if you don’t do what they tell you, they tend to get really pissed. Following his shove, he attempted to hit me; When I noticed what he was about to do I ducked and hit him where my mom told me to hit any guy who tried to put their hands on me. I threw my leg back and in one full-fledged kick, my foot met him in a not so pleasant place and he instantly hit the ground. He didn’t seem so tough now as he lay curled up on the floor sobbing. That was the earliest experience I can recall where someone made me feel puny because of my gender.
Ever since I was younger, this problem frustrated me, the problem of male bias that seemed so prominent in the world and especially in my life. Just because I’m a dress wearing, pony tailed, doll playing human doesn’t mean I’m not as tough as anyone else in this world. I believe that since girls have a different in sight look of things, people think we’re weak, and powerless.
Fathers always expect their sons to be the tough ones, while the girls are supposed to be the sensitive ones, the ones who cry when they fall not the boys. Mothers always teach their daughters to clean and cook before they grow older. Girls are taught to be mothers of animals-09 and baby dolls while boys are being taught to be Harley riders and wrestlers. Girls are taught that in a dress you’re a princess and no one could change that. Boys are taught that the more muscles you have the more people like you.
Girls walking around in short skirts, short shorts and tight clothes just to get the attention of another person. To me people aren’t important id much rather go outside feeling comfortable then to go out wondering “does this shirt look right?” or “is this the right fit?”. I clearly don’t care what people think of me, people have their own opinions and thoughts of what a girl is supposedly supposed to say, wear and look.
My older cousin thinks that every girl is suppose to be mega skinny, always dress nice, and have long hair. Every time I go around him he makes the choice to piss me off, and say stuff like why don’t you ever have your hair done and what happen to your nice clothes and you really go outside like that. This would piss me off a lot if I cared what he really thought. I don’t I think if I accept the way I am, headstrong and beautiful, then I should not listen to how someone else thoughts about me is. Yeah I know a lot of people worry that this wont happen that wont happen. I am still a girl, but I rather go by it the way I think everything should fall into place. Easily and comfortably, just like I have been. I like playing football, I like running around, I like wrestling, and doing my make-up. Everything is even out for me. Just because I like doing things like a boy doesn’t mean I’m not a girl. Just because I dress and look a certain way doesn’t mean people wont like me because I have a boyfriend, and he loves me the way I am.
My mom expects me to be that girly girl she had always wanted, but I’m not. I love being the hard worker I am. I work to succeed in life not to impress others. I want to go to culinary school, not because I’m expected to cook but because I love making people surprised and happy in what I make for them.
By being a girl I am setting a line. Yes I will do my hair, yes I like dressing nicely, and yes I do wear make-up. I will not be criticized by what I want to do and what I like to do. I may be girly but I can still roughhouse, fight, and play rough. Yes I am a girl and I will still cook, not because you want me to but because I love to cook for others and myself. Yes I am a girl so I will settle down one day, but with someone who see’s me as a person not as a play toy. Someone who understands, that I am as much as a person as they are. Someone who believes love doesn’t come from the outside of your body but from the inside of your soul, someone who understands me, cares for me, and respects me.
Yes, I am a girl and I am really very happy to be one.
I being a girl have the power to conquer the world, destroy it and recreate it. I am the Shakti of Shiva, I am the Lakshmi of Vishnu, and the Saraswati of Brahma. I am the creator of all the feelings known to mankind. I am the happiness, I am the sadness, I am the love, I am the lust. I am the one who can turn a house into home, a hell into heaven, a bad into good. I have the power to organize. I have the power to change and lead the world. Yes, I am a girl and I am actually proud to be one.
I am proud Indira Gandhi who can run the most complex Nation, I am proud Aishwarya Rai who can mesmerize anyone with her beauty, I am proud Kalpana Chawla who can go beyond you can imagine, I am proud Saniya Mirza who can show the world how to play, I am the Proud Sudha Murthy who knows how to deal with business, I am Proud Lata Mangeskar who can touch your soul with one aalaap, I am proud Kiran Majumdar Shaw who saves lives with her medicines… I am amongst those many proud names that made their identity touch the sky.
I am a girl and I love to do things like one. I can dance in heels all day and don’t complain, I work for 18-20 hours a day without any pays and still I don’t complain, I may sometimes be weak but in the next minute I become the symbol of strength. I may ask you for a little love but trust me I am not dependent on that. I am efficient enough to earn my bread and yours too. I am a woman of multi-tasking I can talk on phone, cut the vegetables and watch TV altogether. I am the one who can carry a Saree with an absolute ease and in the very next moment I can bling your eyes in a micro-mini.
I am the proud human to have a power to give birth to another human. I am the one who despite of being criticized for doing whatever I do, I keep my journey on. You say one can never understand a woman, I say never dare to do so because this will either get you mad else, fallen in Love with me. I am as complex as simple. I have a heart that can store countless secrets; I can cry all night and still wish you good morning with a smile. Sometimes, I intentionally do stupid things, just because I find you too busy to pay me a little attention. I am the proud girl who once falls in love and never gets out of it and can fight the whole world for it.
I am a girl who walks like a girl, the one who talks like a girl, cries like a girl and acts like a girl and feels no shame about it. I am a girl and I am meant to do things like a girl only. Trust me, if you could do a little better, you could do it like a Girl as well.
I am a proud lover, a proud wife, a proud daughter, a proud mother, a proud sister and of course a proud individual.
