The past 8th of March we celebrated Women’s Day. Even though with every “day of” things always intensify, I’m glad that each day more and more people fight for equality of rights between men and women, because this is what feminism is guys, not the horrible things the media and some people say to invalidate a completely coherent fight. Don’t you find it silly how even when we try to complain about something they want us silenced?I don’t know about you, but I’m so tired of modifying my habits and appearance, or stop doing the things I love and enjoy just because I’m a woman. Luckily for me, my family never limited me, but the rules of the game obviously changed when I entered school and work. I’m always surprised with the amount of women who think it’s normal or even think “this is how things are like” when they’re faced with the fact that women get paid less and have less oportunities to get promoted to leading positions in companies than men. Lets not imagine how much worse it is for queer, gay, trans people to even land a job if you’re open about who you are (yes people, that’s freaking real, believe it or not). I just don’t understand and will never accept that things are like this in the 21st century, when it’s perfectly clear that people’s abilities have nothing to do with their gender or sexual identity.

El 8 de Marzo pasado fue el Día de la Mujer. Y si bien como todo día célebre todo se intensifica, me alegra que cada día existan más y más personas que luchan por la igualdad de derechos y condiciones entre hombres y mujeres a diario, y es que eso es el feminismo gente, no cualquier otra cosa que nos quieran vender para dejar una lucha completamente coherente en la ridiculez. ¿No les parece increíble y loco que hasta cuando queremos reclamar algo se nos intente callar?

No se ustedes, pero yo ya estoy cansada de tener que modificar mis hábitos y apariencia, o dejar de hacer cosas que me gustan y disfruto tan sólo por ser mujer. Desde casa por suerte jamás me limitaron, pero las reglas del juego por supuesto cambiaron cuando empecé el colegio y ni hablar cuando entré al mundo laboral. Me sorprende la cantidad de mujeres que se toman como algo normal y que “es así” el hecho de que cobremos menos y tengamos menos oportunidades de ocupar puestos jerárquicos en una empresa simplemente por ser mujeres. Ni hablar de conseguir trabajo si sos abiertamente gay, trans, queer (si gente, esto es real lamentablemente). Y es que no entiendo y jamás voy a aceptar por qué esto es así hoy, siglo XXI, cuando es perfectamente claro que las capacidades de cada persona están completamente desligadas de su género o identidad sexual.

I’m tired of being scared of dressing the way I want and go out to the streets. I feel sick to the stomach every time I have to go out; I start thinking of what should I wear and where it’d be safest to walk. If someone invites me out at night, more often than not I say “no” right away because I’d be scared of going back home alone at night. And IF I’m brave enough to do it, I go back home in a cab where I get into and right away send my mom or boyfriend an audio message that goes along the lines of “I’m in the cab. Be home in 20 more or less”, just in case the driver is a pervert.It’s even worse and more sahocking when the agression comes from women themselves. Women who suffer the same things some of us already complain about. Women who don’t feel represented by those who fight for the rights of every single one of us, because we know that sooner or later we will all realize that “damn… there’s something wrong in this system”, because I was one of those women who also said some other girl was a whore and judged hard the one who uploaded a photo of herself in just a bra on Facebook.

Nowadays, each and every single time I upload something to Instagram or this blog, I feel empowered. I feel like the owner of my body and what I do (and don’t do) with it, and I’m 100% sure of my values and beliefs regarding this fight that every day becomes bigger and full of rich experiences. I feel free when I write and share what I think of, even when I know these are hard times to be yourself and express your opinions freely, but you know what? It’s as risky as it is necessary.

Estoy cansada de tener miedo de vestirme como quiero y salir a la calle. Se me hace un nudo en el estómago cada vez que tengo que salir a la calle y pienso qué me voy a poner y por dónde voy a caminar. Si me invitan a cenar de noche, directamente digo que no porque me da miedo volverme sola en la oscuridad, y si soy valiente y voy de todos modos, me vuelvo en un remis donde al momento de subirme le mando un audio a mi mamá o a mi novio con un “ya estoy en el remis, calculo que en 20 estoy en casa”, por si el chofer resulta ser un pervertido.

Me resulta aún más chocante cuando la agresión viene de parte de otras mujeres. Mujeres que sufren las mismas agresiones que nosotras que ya podemos ver claramente como son las cosas. Mujeres que no se sienten representadas por aquellas que luchamos por el bien de todas, porque sabemos que a todas tarde o temprano nos cae la ficha de “che… acá hay algo que no me cierra”, porque yo también le decía puta y juzgaba a la que se mostraba en corpiño en una foto de Facebook.

Hoy en día, cada vez que subo algo a este blog o pongo una foto mía en Instagram me siento poderosa. Me siento dueña de mi cuerpo y de lo que hago (o no) con él, y estoy segura de mis valores y convicciones con respecto a esta lucha de la cual cada vez más personas son parte. Me siento libre cuando escribo y comparto lo que pienso, aún sabiendo que estamos en una época donde expresar tus opiniones abiertamente es tan riesgoso como necesario.

I dream of the day we can look at each other without a judging frown and instead say “you’re rocking it girl!”. I dream of the day future generations can live with one less fear written on their lists. But most of all, I dream of the day we can all look at each other as “people” and not just men or women.Sueño con el día en el que nos digamos “¡la estás rompiendo nena!” cada vez que nos crucemos en vez de dedicarnos esas frías miradas con el ceño fruncido que juzgan todo lo que ven. Sueño con el día en el que las generaciones futuras tengan un miedo menos del que preocuparse escrito en su lista. Pero sobre todo, sueño con el día en que podamos mirarnos todos a los ojos y ver “personas” en vez de simplemente hombres y mujeres.
