Word Play

Monday, February 14th, 2011

I ran around the blog and got into a slight discussion about Spirituality that incorporated opinions about atheists and Christians. I ran into an atheist event that discussed male and female points of view. The theme for today is clearly labels.

To illustrate what is right and wrong with labels, let’s imagine a scene where a man is talking about women. Let’s say he says women don’t know how to act. An immediate series of problems comes into play.

  • How should a woman act?
  • How does a man know how a woman should act?
  • Does the man think all men need to act like a certain type of man?

I don’t think the issue is that simple. I think building this idea of a beautiful woman leads to a lot of despair for a lot of people. I think we’re making the world worse with our myopia.

Don’t think I’m immune to my biology mixed with my culture. I know the pleasantness of noticing someone who fits a certain image. However, one of my principle issues in life is the effort to deal with each person I meet as an individual because I want to be treated as a unique person myself.
