Disrespected and Wholesome

By: Gabriela Yareliz

I wanted to share a random observation:

There can be two women. One is worldly. She dresses perhaps less modestly, curses, sometimes behaves irresponsibly, and may throw tantrums or be more high maintenance about certain things. Then, there can be an older woman who is modest, wholesome, and kind.

In this world, for some reason, the younger one who is dressed more provocatively or drinks irresponsibly is often treated more as an adult and given more respect, while the older, wholesome woman is sometimes treated with disrespect, as if she were a child or juvenile.

This world has it all backwards.
