I am a feminist,
I believe in advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for all women. No matter your ethnic or socioeconomic background you may come from. In recent times I have noticed a trend in many young women. Graduating from high-school, entering into the work force, entering a prestigious university, marriage, married life.
Yes, many of us want to find love have all those new beginnings and first time everything’s. Although, there is nothing wrong with this. I have a bone to pick with some young ladies. Being from a Christian-Armenian home myself I grew up in Los Angeles, California with an Armenian mother and Armenian father. I am one lucky girl because neither of my parents ever enforced the idea of marriage upon my brother nor I. Yes, they would like us to eventually marry and begin families of our own. But, I am most thankful to them for not pressuring us to marry, ever.
I have noticed in recent times (maybe it’s because of my age) many of my friends, peers, colleagues venturing into marriage. I am all for the sanctity of marriage but, in my culture it seems to me that it has become a competition amongst young adults to marry by the time their 30. Comments by mutual friends on social media arose resentment in me because of ignorant comments about “wifeing someone up”. May I ask, what makes you think we all want to be “wife-d up”? You work tirelessly to get yourself through the painful parking wars at community colleges, to sit through dreadful classes filled with dim-witted individuals who are only there for government assistance checks.
En route for ultimately transferring to a university where you work vigorously to commute every day after working 8-12 hour shifts just to obtain a piece of paper that gives you a sense of relief. In hopes that one day this world will recognize your hard-work. Just to become conscious that NO, this is not enough now I must fight the thousands of young BA/BS degree holders to obtain a comfortable paying job which may or may not help me pay off this student debt for the rest of my Armenian-American life. Than when you decide you want to enter into a graduate program so that just maybe your uphill struggle will be distinguished above the rest of your peers.
Inevitably you continue your stride for a better profession in the wolves den of American corporate world. Whether some of us decide to go into the medical, legal, public relations, computer technology or retail world, I applaud your continued struggles.
Not every young Armenian-American girl desires to grow up and marry a handsome prince. To one day cook, clean, & prance around on his arm as his wifey. Many of us would like to parade around as executives, attorneys, doctors, and PR practitioners. Please do not misunderstand my concerns for I am ALL for the hard working mothers, wife’s, and daughters of Armenian’s all around the world. But, to assume that, that is all we Armenian women want is a disgraceful. For the many whom work without hindrance to be recognized for their life’s accomplishments as more than just someone’s wifey.
I love outdoor activities especially snowboarding. Now, I am not a huge sports fanatic but, if these #Chanel sports goods were in my house I would make an effort to love every sport!
Most girls want #Chanel handbags I just want #ChanelSnowboard even my pass time comes stylish. 😎
