I Stand For Equality

Sunday, August 27, 2017
I'm all for equality, it's something I strongly believe in. When you're younger, things aren't quite as complicated. Before  I continue, this is my opinion and how I feel. Everything is pretty simple and everyone looks at one another as the same. It's when you become an adult that things aren't quite as clear. Like many other kids when I was growing up, I didn't really see how sexist, racist, homophobic and judgmental this world really is.
No one should have to be afraid to show some skin, because it might give someone the "wrong" idea. Just because someone wears revealing clothing does not give people the right to take advantage of them. That doesn't give people the right to make them feel uncomfortable like they've done something wrong, no means no. Why is it that women have to be labeled as weak? Why can't a women do a "mans job" better than him? Wake up people it's the 21st century, a place where women have rights! 
I didn't think in 2017 people would still be fighting for equality, but I guess that's the judgmental world we live in. No one should have to live in fear for their lives, because of their race or religion. No one should have to hide who they are and who they love, because others think it's not normal or even human. Has anything even changed? 
I mean let's really think about it. There's still racial profiling, there's still sexism, and there's still judgment towards the lgbtq community. The question I have is why is this still happening? I guess this is a rhetorical question, because no one has an exact explanation. I believe in equality and instead of things changing for the better, I feel like things are going backwards in the wrong direction. 

I hope you enjoyed reading! What do you think about the situations that are currently taking place in this world or wherever you live?
