Being a man in a Masculine society seems natural until the day that you become conscious about this brutal manly situation. it's not the matter of a place or certain culture, it's a mindset that can and should change. it's about certain roles for men and women in which they should fit themselves, to be recognised as a mature human. “a respectable family” is a question mark and a mirror in the face of this sad reality.
All the quotes are from “The Second Sex”, Simone de Beauvoir.
“Representation of the world, like the world itself, is the work of men; they describe it from their own point of view, which they confuse with absolute truth.” – Grandmother
“Few tasks are more like the torture of Sisyphus than housework, with its endless repetition: the clean becomes soiled, the soiled is made clean, over and over, day after day.” – Mother
“...her wings are cut and then she is blamed for not knowing how to fly.” – Sister
“To catch a husband is an art; to hold him is a job.” – Wife
“No one is more arrogant toward women, more aggressive or scornful, than the man who is anxious about his virility.” – Father, Brother, Husband
