Men don’t cry and women don’t fight
And women wear heels so they look alright
And makeup is important, and so is delicacy
And when it comes to emotions, they all need secrecy.
And men wear pants, not wigs or skirts
And they don’t admit when they get hurt
they must have power, they must be strong,
And acting different is obviously wrong.
Because female is one thing, and another,
Two separate categories like father and mother,
And if you believe this ,god bless your soul
Does gender, so strongly, dictate a role?
What does it matter, at the end of the day
Its not black or white its an equal shade of grey.
“Men” can be “Women” and the other way around,
Until these expectations are nowhere to be found.
Poem by : Strange Mind
This poem relates to gender roles in Frankenstein because woman and men are expected to have certain roles. I feel like people should be able to live their life how they want to without being judged. Woman are expected to be weak and feminine and men have to be strong. If men are feminine they will be judged or if woman are masculine they will be judged. People shouldn’t be expected to act a certain way its their life they can be what they want.
