Tia Has Strong Views On Sexism

Submitted By: Tia | Age: 14 

Me 2I personally have strong views on sexism myself to be told “you can’t do it, your just a GIRL” is the worst insult that could ever have been said. I can do what I like because girls can do things just as good as men if not better so they can’t put me down because I know that being a young woman is the best thing in the world.

Women naturally get put down because we have feelings but those feeling guide us better that a man’s intuition we can make decisions based on fact and our feelings and more often than not those are the right decisions.

As for men when they get it wrong, we pick up the pieces (though they won’t admit it).  Like they say behind every great man there’s a woman (telling him what to do, they’d be lost other wise) but I think its time for us to stand forward and take the credit – after all we do deserve it.

    well said tia!!

    i personally have been told that i can’t do things, because im a girl. but i have proved so many boys wrong! and thats what they need! to be corrected in life (:

    i used to play football, and some boys at my school said that girls are rubbish at football, but when i tackled them for the ball, they could catch flies with the way their mouth was open! it was so funny!
