This isn’t about minimalism. This is something that has continued to upset me as a female. The lines of feminism and gender roles seem to be taken out of context far too often, and WAY out of context. I believe this photo is a perfect example. This status was posted by someone close to me, yet still it makes me extremely upset.
Since when is a person not allowed to compliment a presentation? Particularly when that person happens to be the person grading said presentation?! I believe my friend put HERSELF in to a gender role box with this entire statement. If the professor had said “Good job today for a female” that’d be an entirely different story. However, that isn’t the case. The professor gave a student a compliment for a good presentation for goodness sake! There are too many people who are looking to make a fuss or an argument out of something that is simply not there. This is ridiculous and dividing us up more as a human race.
What are your thoughts? Did this strike you as insulting? A backhanded compliment? A genuine compliment? I’m very curious to hear opinions!
p.s. I promise I will try to make my nest post a minimalist post=)
