“What a tangled web we weave with division”

Lyn-Marie BlackmanPromoting the rights of one gender above the other is divisive and counter-productive, writes Lyn-Marie Blackman, 29, a Commonwealth Correspondent from Barbados, who advocates the goal of universal rights.

Many of us living on this earth have heard about feminism. We know about its goals, its successes and its failures.

We have also heard about masculism, and are familiar with its goals, it successes and its failures.

Coming from these two branches of philosophy, or movements, as some would rather prefer to title them, is a distinct theme. The theme coming from both of them is the desire for progression.

In life, the aim that we, as the individuals who comprise the seven billion on this earth, all have is that innate desire to progress. The innate desire for progression, however, for many can become rotted by division.

These two distinct movements exist in our world. One advocates for the progression of women’s and girls’ rights, and the other is mobilised for the betterment of men and boys. Both desire the same thing but are on opposite and opposing ends of the progression table.

It is understandable why they are on opposing ends of the table. But are these movements sustainable? Are these two branches of philosophy able to survive in a world that is rapidly changing? These groups, although being decision-making bodies that aim to co-exist with each other on our planet, are really more co-dependent on each other than they realize.

The one needs the other in order for new life to be formed. Male needs female and female needs male for procreation and balance in our world, despite the opposition. The conversation should not be one of male rights or female rights. It should not be about who is right or wrong, but rather universal rights for ALL who inhabit this planet we call home.

Feminism + masculism = unity, growth and elevation for ALL.
