Men and Women: In Love and In Conflict
It feels good to be protected. It feels good to be loved. It’s wonderful to be respected. I have faced aggressive criticism from men and women equally over the years.
Archaic beliefs over sex, for one. The recent awareness drummed up by social media, traditional media, activists and, celebrities have helped the world understand that a woman’s choice to have sex or not have sex, to host a baby or not host a baby in her body is hers and hers alone. Still, staunch traditional values of certain cultures dictate how a women’s body should be used and should not be used. I am a victim of this. My trusted gynaecologist judged me. “You should have more sex. That’s the cause of your problem.”
