6 Things I Love About Female Gender Stereotypes
Law Practice Today

As a female human, I absolutely love being pushed into a box labeled "society's expectations" along with my fellow women. I love it almost as much as I love being shoved into the box labeled "illegal immigrant." That being said, many have asked me, "Alex, why do you love female stereotypes so much?" Well folks, I have six reasons.

1. People assume that I'm the one who cleaned

Yep, totally. I was the one who cleaned the apartment, thank you for noticing. I do so much hard work around here, I should have a day to myself. It totally was not my male roommate who did the dishes.

2. Children automatically like me

I'm a girl, children perceive me as a "mother figure." Because of this, kids love me and I have so much fun playing games with them. Unlike my dude friend, who is generally avoided because kids think "he looks scary."

3. Avoiding Homophobic A**holes

Yes please, you homophobic a**hole. Assume that I am straight. All women are straight. Don't yell slurs or throw bottles at me because I am but a lonely straight woman. Hit on me, I love it when dudes hit on me. Force me to admit my sexuality and then tell me I'm going to hell. I love that.

4. Cooking food for my "hungry guys"

HA.

5. Using my perceived weakness to my advantage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F26%2F636237444158269972155907511_taurus2.gif%3Fw%3D500%26h%3D346&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=594&h=f9f1d69e9c820dd4b8e0cf0422ba6caac9641b39a4b2c45a3882aa5568bc4c0a&size=980x&c=2589939725 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F26%252F636237444158269972155907511_taurus2.gif%253Fw%253D500%2526h%253D346%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D594%26h%3Df9f1d69e9c820dd4b8e0cf0422ba6caac9641b39a4b2c45a3882aa5568bc4c0a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2589939725%22%7D" expand=1]

I'm actually really lazy and my arms are not weak at all, but thank you kind male stranger, for carrying all of my books. Could you open a jar for me later?

6. Secretly toppling the patriarchy

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F26%2F636237446926385419-176933456_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=910&h=4178f5c9c31f423a598941c486093cf436c3de72902182024fae43a7e0ee5fb4&size=980x&c=3860786947 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F26%252F636237446926385419-176933456_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D910%26h%3D4178f5c9c31f423a598941c486093cf436c3de72902182024fae43a7e0ee5fb4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3860786947%22%7D" expand=1]

They won't expect little ole' me. I am perceived as weak and emotional, they won't even bother paying attention to me. And then, when their backs are turned, I will TOPPLE THE PATRIARCHY.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.
