Binary Women

Some people see women as having one or another set of characteristics. According to this image there is a fundamental gulf between two very distinct types of women.

The characteristics listed on the left are obviously not really feminine traits at all, at least that’s my interpretation of the punctuation marks following the words Femininity.?, Leadership??, Discipline??, Logical??, Responsibility??, and Competitive??. And then we have the words Protect and Provide crossed out. The creator of this image has a pretty narrow view of appropriate traits for both men and women.

It seems to me that the two lists encompass many HUMAN characteristics than may be found in any combination in any individual, regardless of gender.

I found the image on Twitter, without a source, so I can’t credit the image or criticize directly the person or people responsible for such a harmful piece of shit image.
