Arguing Won't Help Us As Women Achieve What We Want, We Must Work Together

Arguing Won't Help Us As Women Achieve What We Want, We Must Work Together
Mark Dixon

No, not all women are feminists and every woman has the same views as another. But this shouldn't divide us.

We should acknowledge and celebrate our differences.

We should be proud of each other for saying something and standing up for themselves.

Women as a whole are strong. We're intelligent, talented, and unstoppable, yet we continue to tear each other down based on different opinions. Not every girl wants to be popping out babies left and right.

We have the right to decide what to do with their bodies. People shouldn't pester or push others around based on what they believe.

If you want to be in the kitchen with his dinner plate, go for it girl. If you want to be the CEO of the company he works for, by all means, do it. Don't let other people's opinions make you want to change the way you live.

Everyone believes something different. You shouldn't have to be bullied into believing something else. If you want to change the way you think, do it for you.

We don't have to agree with each other, or even support each other's beliefs, but we should at least support each other for saying what we believe and standing up for it. Standing up for what you believe in is so hard in this day and age.

People are always shooting down beliefs they think are wrong simply because it's not like theirs, but we need to acknowledge each other's beliefs and support the fact that something is being said. No one listens anymore. We just argue. This won't help us solve anything or achieve what we desire. We're holding ourselves back.

When men see us arguing with each other, do you think they will take us seriously? They won't have to do anything but manipulate the arguments. We do most of the arguing ourselves and if we want to achieve something, this must stop.

Stubbornness is not a good trait; it has never been and it never will be. We have to stop being hard-headed and hear each other out. Again, you don't have to agree with everything that's said, but listening to others and their opinions will gain you respect, progress the argument, and eventually lead to a resolution.

We can't keep fighting each other like this. If we want to move forward, we need to change the way we communicate.

Instead of fighting with each other, let's fight for each other. Feminist or not, we need to stick together.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
