I know what you’re thinking… She is going to yap on about technology. Far from it. In the world we live in today there are so many categories of people but I want to focus on the female gender….. Not that I’m a feminist in any kind of way and not that I am not, I just think that some girls have been forgotten in our society. Yes, we know the successful ones, the brave ones, the ladylike ones, the ones with muscular mannerisms but is there one forgotten in the midst of all of them? I think so.
Most of the categories of ladies we see are based on the characteristics I have named above. Is there one forgotten who doesn’t quite fit into these categories? Could there be ladies who are a little bit of all of them and are just not able to fit in? That is how we are as human beings. We want to belong and when we don’t, we change to suit other people. However, there are those who do not change for anyone and anything, but they are not exposed on the TV screens or known to everyone because they are a given few. I’m not going to talk about those ladies either.
Without further ado, let me dive right in (the actual song ringing in my head… You know the one). This lady is confident -like the successful woman- being in control of things, hard-working, determined. She is also like the brave lady, soldiering on through whatever situation there may be. Then also like the ladylike one, behaving maturely in every way, making the right decisions and being respected as an adult. Finally, she is also the one with boyish mannerisms. She could tell you a whole lot of information on football and you would wonder why she knows all that. She could hang out like one of the boys and you could even go forward to call her “brathee” (which is equivalent to bro/bruh depending on where you’re coming from). She plays games, Fifa most especially.
I know some may wonder what I am saying but just follow through I’m getting to the point. She is like a hybrid of all the ladies we know and love yet she is never brought into the limelight. Not that she wants the attention but she wants recognition. While being a hybrid of all those categories seems fun, it may not always be that way in the life of that girl.
Case in point, close your eyes and assume you are her, sitting with a group of guys discussing football… In that crowd is someone you have had your eye on for a while… Could probably say a crush….you pour out all the knowledge on football you have, well you do have it, just as you think he is responding to you in a manner likely to suggest he feels the same way he tells you “Poa brathee”, landing you into the friend zone just like that. Because of who you are, they will never see you as a lady but as one of the guys.
Situations like these make her switch off and disconnect from other people..they do not understand. No one does. Thus, I give you the hybrid, a kind of lady, they may be someone close to you. Recognise her.
Let’s get savvvvvvy people,
