Let me begin this post by asking you a simple question, “who or what comes in your mind, when you hear the word, genius?”
Probably, for most of males, it would be someone like Einstein or similar, depending on one’s interest, but what is more surprising is that for females as well, it’s a male personality that tends to stand out among the geniuses of the world.
Have you ever wondered, why the fairer sex, doesn’t seem to find a place in the memory of individuals, when it comes to geniuses being spoken of?
Have you ever figured it out, why in the representation of super-people, superheros tend to dominate the other world and not the super-heroins?
If the male chauvinists out there are wondering, what the heck I am speaking of, I am actually questioning the very basis on how genius tends to find a definition in our society.
I am actually trying to emphasize on the genius of a woman, when she handles her tasks, both personal and professional with such an amazing efficiency and commitment.
I am actually referring to the stability, that only the genius of a woman, can provide not only to individual families, but also to the entire cosmos.
Then, why such feats are not talked about or highlighted in the scheme of things, be it the media or our society in general?
Well, to be honest, am not such a big fan of labeling, be it genius or non-genius, for labels create divide.
Labels have evolved from a much prevalent tendency to post mortem each and every aspect of our lives.
But if it was so compulsive, that the entire label mentality cannot be given up in the near future, at least we should try to act equanimous at some level of labeling.
So, it’s high time, we make a change in the way we think, in the way we label, in the way we create this society and the world around us.
For if we were to go the gendered way of creating and labeling geniuses, we would be creating more biases and tendencies, which would be hard to ignore in times to come and would have its own set of repercussions.
