Bots are designed by people, and therefore reflect the disproportionate gender representation in the tech industry, where women continue to form a minority in discussions on development and design.
The gender roles that society puts on us, should not define the way we live. Be you.
“My girlfriend handles the bugs in the house. I simply scream.”
You’re not allowed to be a full human. Sadness, loneliness, fear, regret, jealousy, any insecurity whatsoever: you’re not allowed to have those. Besides anger; the humans have painted that one as “masculine,” so it’s OK, but only sparingly.
So since it’s 2017, I think it’s high time we updated these so called gender roles and start respecting individual freedom.
“Gender inequality is not our culture, it is a tradition. Traditions can change. They should change. If traditions never changed then America would still have slavery.”
To the media and advertising and people who are still living thinking men need to live up to the masochistic versions that we have all but retired, I hope you wake up.
“I’m so “indoctrinated”, it is hard for me to not be completely ashamed and fight crying even around people who completely support me and would not think less of me for it.”
“I don’t have to do any work during sex.”
Women are not the only ones oppressed by traditional gender roles, and that is why feminists fight to destroy them to not only benefit women, but men as well.
