And Facebook asked, “What’s on your mind”. Out of instinct, you simply copied what’s on others’ mind. Isn’t it true with most of us? Well, we being the human are slave of our instincts.
But then, there are people who are self-reliant. And observers too. These groups keep on updating their Facebook profile with something really meaningful (though we don’t deny the craps flooding in at times). Be it a social happening, any tumultuous political scenario or something really insignificant, these people are quite eloquent in the social media. And, then there are folks who keep on updating status, just for attracting spotlight.
Whatever be the reason, there are posts which are often lauded and highly talked about in various forums and here we have such 10 posts which have got the highest votes ever. We Went Through the Pages of Social Media to Find Something Really Interesting.
10 Best Facebook Posts
1. When the society is so deeply stricken with gender inequality, this post surely carries some profound subtexts
She had always hoped for a daughter. She would dress her up in pretty dresses, braid her hair; she would be her precious doll. In anticipation and hope, she bought lace frocks and other beautiful clothes for baby girls. When her daughter arrived, she forgot about the dresses, dolls and braids. She felt unmatched fear.
What if someone tried to hurt her daughter? She hadn’t thought of that. Is everyone right? Is a daughter really a liability? Then she looked at the strongest woman she knew. Standing next to her was her mother. The only person in the world she looked for during her excruciating labor pains. The only person who could comfort her and make her stronger at the same time. Her mother had never thought she and her sister were liabilities. Her mother had raised two strong, independent women. Then she realized what she had to do. She had to be strong to make her daughter strong. She knew what she would have to start teaching her daughter from the beginning.
2. And you thought feminism is a refuge only for the oppressed?? Dude! Get an idea what it is
Feminism is for every woman in the world. It doesn’t matter whether she has had an easy life or not. Feminism means women are equal to men. But it doesn’t mean that you hate men. Not all men are criminals, just like every woman isn’t a saint. For every man that hurts a woman, there are many others to stand with her and demand punishment for the perpetrator. At the same time, don’t demand privileges or concessions just because you’re a woman. That’s not equality.
3. Well, Marriage is not a necessity, it’s a choice. And then, it’s just like any other event of a life
Marriage is not a destination for you. It’s a choice you may or may not make. It is not a girl’s job to groom herself for marriage. It is also not every woman’s job to produce children. Marriage and children won’t make you whole. An education, a fulfilling career and a happy life will make you a complete person. Marriage and/or children are big commitments. No one, not us or any man, can coerce you into doing something you don’t want.
4. Staying alone is not about your safety concern. It means you are enough grown up to take care of yourself. Be it a girl or a boy, staying alone is all about living life to the fullest
When you start working and earning enough, I expect you to move out and live independent of us. People will tell you that it is not safe for a girl to live alone. Don’t believe them. If we run scared from everything that is not 100% safe, we may as well build ourselves a bubble. That’s no way to live.
5. If the world is for the opportunists, be selfish if need be
It’s nice to do a good deed without expecting anything in return. That is the definition of a truly unselfish act. However, always working without gratitude, not getting your money’s worth, or being in a one-sided relationship will only make you a bitter person. The world is not a perfect place. It is naturally inclined to take advantage of the naive.

6. Learn to speak up for yourself!
Don’t become a doormat for anyone. I expect you to look after yourself after a certain age. I expect you to pick up after yourself. But I will not tolerate anyone expecting you to do that for them. I expect you to protest against such behavior too. Whether it’s anyone in the family or someone you may marry, you will not become anyone’s slave.
7. It’s your dream and any intruder is simply an outsider. Even if, they are from your kins, they have no rights to curb the dream which is absolutely yours
Your dreams are yours alone. I would love for you to become the most successful person in the world in any career you choose. If it is your dream to become an astronaut, work for it. If it is your dream to travel the world and write about it, work for it. If it is your dream to marry a man and start a family with him, I won’t stop you. That’s hard work too.
8. You are no different from a boy. Born with a vagina does not make you any less than a man. And the lesson of equality starts in the toy room
You don’t have to play with dolls and stuffed animals, if you don’t want to. You don’t have to play with guns and toy soldiers either. I will bring you a range of things to spark your interest. After that, it’s your choice.
9. You are a plaything, at least in the diseased society. So brace yourself. This post clearly hints at the acceptability of the “touch”, the right touch and the wrong. Pretty deep and definitely a scathing criticism of the social conditions
It is not acceptable for someone to touch you without your consent. I will teach you the difference between the wrong touch and the acceptable touch, and I hope you won’t shy away from telling me if someone does touch you inappropriately. Don’t keep even the tiniest doubt to yourself. No one is exempt from this rule. Not your uncles, not your aunts, not your grandparents, not your brother, not your father, not even me. If something makes you uncomfortable, talk to me or your father about it.
10. And finally, “you” are a human being and no other roles define your stand in your life. You are simply “you”
You are you. Everything else is secondary. Your role as a daughter, sister, girlfriend, wife, or mother does not define you. Always maintain your own identity independent of every relationship in your life. You shouldn’t be sidelined in your own life.
Well, these posts say a lot. In fact quite a lot about the society, of culture, people and at the same time, they tell a story of every man fixed in the flux of life. Let us know how you feel about these and share with us, if you found anything really interesting!
