‘Yes thought many times, but being a woman is better’
Answering this question, Jigyasa said that many times she also thought that if she were a boy, maybe many things would have become easier for her.
Keeping his views, he said, ‘We live in a malevolent society. It is often seen that men have got special rights/facilities in many situations, which women do not have. Seeing this, many times we also take a step back, because these questions start arising in our mind that being a girl, can I do this or will I be able to do this?
The society we live in and the way it teaches us gender based things, we also start thinking that being a boy is better. However, I believe that this thinking is not entirely correct. Being a woman is better than being a man.
‘Never thought I wish I had a boy’
Hailing from a family from Jaipur, Shivani said that it never crossed her mind that she wished she was a boy. She said that because of the kind of family she was born into, the way she was brought up and the people she met in her life, she never felt that she should have been a man.
Shivani further said, ‘If seen apart from men and women, then every person is special in himself, who has been created by God himself. We all have some goal of being born, keeping that in mind we should work on it and live a meaningful life.
‘I was never told that you are a girl, so you have to do these things’
Maitri answered this question by saying, ‘I never thought what if I were a boy? The kind of family I come from, I was never told or taught that because you are a girl, you have to do these things. Rather, I was taught that because I am a girl, it does not mean that I have to do the work associated with my gender. I never felt that my brother had more rights than me.
Maitri also advised those girls who have such thoughts in their mind. She said that women have to try to come out of situations and away from people who make them think that maybe they would be better off if they were men.
‘Boys have freedom to roam’
Varnika said that many times the thought crossed her mind that it is better to be a boy. He said that there are many such things which boys are free to do but girls are not. For example, going for a walk in the evening or hanging out with friends.
‘So I too standing somewhere…’
Rishu told that many times this thought came in his mind that what if she was a boy? She said that if that were the case, she too would be able to stand on the road and drink, which boys often do. Rishu further said, ‘If I were a man, I would probably be able to stand in the meeting room and say that I am the alpha male here.’
