Centuries have pased since the saga of supresson of women commenced. They are acrushed, grouned and squeezed but never heard moaning as in the case of equal property rights. They have made dozens of demands and got even the lawmakers to listen. They are at their shrilling best. It's all happening because they now know only the language of the land, and not of love.
Right from the dawn of civilisation, women seek to posess all the things they see around them. Love for them is nothing more than cuffst to keep spouses and offsprings by their side. Kitchen, garden, office, factory, jeans, and short hair…What else do they need?
A man gets married when he wants to possess something. A woman kicks him out when the right moment comes.
Sisters, I have no prejudice against you. But think, once you claim your parental property, you will be obliged to do all what your brothers do for your parents. Don't you know that parents are the most selfish creatures in the world?
They 'pay' their sons in advance for tehir security. So, you cannot leave them till death and there will be social respnsibilities for you during and even after their deaths.
Even today, parents generally shudder at the thought of a girl child because they cost a hefty dowry. Now, do you think they will ever accept a girl child who will grab the portion and quit with her man?I'm afraid that day will come soon when you will visit a national history museum to trace your own species.
Reluctantly though, you confess that you are always subjected to auction in a way or another. Very soon, you'll create another criterion to have yourself priced. You will be apprised about the resale value of your property and you'll start calling the right customers. Be proud to show off your rightful possessions and buy a handsome husband. So gals, are you ready for the show?
Let parrots, you go on yelling that men exist only to dominate, destroy and demolish the fair sex. Not only you, your cirtues and beauty but your treasures will also be counted. How beautiful our social scenario will be! (For me it's OK. I'll divorce my wife and search for a more wealthy one).
Marriage in our society is getin more and more extravagant and mompous. Oly a few faters can afford a daughter's wedding ceremony without being hurt by the shock of almost going bankrupt. Don't you want to share the true property (i.e., bankrupcy and loans) with your brothers?
So, sisters, don't get furious at this junk. It might be a social crime to utter a single word more against your flock. There are many other spheres of practice which are more vital for your existance. It is merely an open secret that not equality but coveteousness is what matters. Doing always what otehrs say would lead you to an abyss. It's your life, your choice.
So, do you really want land taken by force in the name of women's right or love that 'makes the world go round'? I simply feel pity when you cannot realise that you are runnign after men's signals. Moreever, you will be boycotted or given small patches of land which will cost you a lot -- love.
