Guys vs Girls?
« on: November 05, 2015, 03:35:41 pm »
Why must Guys always be above girls?.. our grandparent put their grandson above their granddaughter.. Parent put their son above their daughter?.. i would understand if the grandfather or father put the boys above the girl.. but why the grandmother n mother put the boys above the girl? Aren't they girl also??

You say modern era, but that is about 30 odd years only till date, not enough time to infuse this sort of thoughts yet over the different generations. (for far east countries)

That is provided if the traditional concept is not applied at the same time in households which is unlikely as chinese culture is rather "rich" in terms of favoring the males.

Also inheritance plays a minor part maybe ?

Sometimes, a girl has to be a stay at home mum because she has no choice. It is easier to work outside than taking care of kids. If you have 3 kids, it makes more economical sense to be a SAHM if you are earning less than $2,000/mth coz of the childcare costs.

Unfortunately in Singapore there will never be equal lol.

Well atleast on the law side, it favors female heavily. I would say its good but still, quite sickening to see it being abused by the few.


to look at how stigma starts to slowly fade away, just look at the LGBT and Race issues over the global.
Im sure there are other issues that are similiar in context.

Grandparents and parents favour sons than daughters coz of older generation's thinking that sons will take care of them when they become old. But it is a different generation now. Nowadays, guys are more bo-chup than girls when taking care of parents and grandparents.

I agree that favorism over guys still exist. Perhaps it's just traditional mindset pass down from the past. I feel fortunate that my grandparents treat me equally well as my other male cousins.

Its not easy to look after 3kids.. bt nowadays.. to apply for subsidy in childcare.. mom ned to work..  how to work if there we able to send kids 1 at a time.. bt guys can lah look after the dad.. wat bout their mom.. surely not all willing to change their mom diaper or shower them.. we girls too able to look after our parent not just guys.. we too able to earn money like guys.. we girl too can do man job.. but can a guys do a women duty as a mother n wife?
