Marriage and other old-fashioned things

I just read this article on xojane in which the article’s author, Kristin, did The Rules for three months to see how it would affect her dating life. In a nutshell, she was not into it.

As a pro-Rules girl, I read all her reasons for why The Rules are old-fashioned and made her feel less self-respect for herself (instead of more, as The Rules promise), and I believe her negative take on it comes from the common misconceptions that most anti-Rules girls get from the 90s dating book. Or put more bluntly, I feel like she read it wrong and was therefore Doin’ It Wrong (sorry).

I fully acknowledge and agree with the intrinsically dodgy things that The Rules promotes that Kristin mentioned in her article, like ‘if you have a bad nose, simply get a nose job’ and the damage that referring to women as a ‘product’ does to us. That is a humongous can of worms in itself and can be saved for another post another day.

So it happened with me – this morning after watching Swedish morning news…

I will start with good things to make this post a bit more positive! 😀 I truly adore the world’s and especially Swedish women’s strength to fight for their rights- Feminism, you know!

And I would always raise my hands for women’s rights. I will always be against misogyny or patriarchy, because I need to be honest- I know how it feels to be evaluated only by my looks and being hushed up because… I am a woman, but… I am standing for genuine history- and after all we get here- my today’s post – Confusing messages!
