I was on the insanely popular Instagram and noticed that Rhianna posted a picture with the caption: “I’m not a princess. I don’t need saving. I’m a queen…”.
Irony aside, I find it rather interesting how some women (not just celebrity girls) often like to proclaim that they don’t need to be rescued. As if needing someone to save you is an absolute sign of weakness. Pardon me but have YOU ever tried being vulnerable and letting someone save you? THAT is scary. THAT is what takes courage. At least in my humble opinion.
I’d like to think that I can survive and be strong through whatever life tosses at me. The thought of actually having someone there so I don’t have to do it alone is rather comforting. I don’t think this takes away from my feminist views. Am I crazy and naive to think that it shouldn’t?
What do you think? Are men even in the business of saving us anymore? Not referring to chivalry, per se. Are men still interested in protecting, saving, and rescuing women? Do women today know how to accept that?
If and when a man needed to be saved, would he find it difficult to let a woman rescue him?
