I acknowledge women bear the brunt of unfairness from the work place, dating, home life, etc. Though we've made a lot of advances in terms of equal rights, there are some areas of life in which we're just not on equal footing with our male counterparts. Another topic I don't have time to address here is whether we even want to be.
Before writing this post, I wondered why women, often times, take the fall harder than men do. I don't think it's because women are the "weaker sex." What I concluded is that it's because women can have babies. While empowered in the sense that we can give life, I think it also places upon us an expectation that we operate with more responsibility and integrity. When we don't, people are let down.
Kristen might recover in her career. This is Hollywood and a lot of craziness happens. Nicole Richie was arrested for a wrong-way DUI several years ago. She now has a husband, two children, and lives a very stable life. Granted, she's not a career actress. Nevertheless, she's still received a lot of attention from the paparazzi. In other words, women can recover from mistakes. But, it can be an arduous uphill battle.
Like anything, though, the little choices ultimately define one's character. If you contemplate doing something less than reputable, realize that, as a woman, you'll take more heat for it. Like it or not. Fair or unfair. These are the decisions to make when assessing the risks to take.
Tell me what you think! Is it better to play the hand your dealt as a woman when it comes to men? I really look forward to opinions from you all on this one.
Until next time...
