The moral energy behind the feminist is currently shaking American philosophy. There has been recent efforts to increase the proportion of women in philosophy and to get rid of all bias and discrimination. These actions have shifted philosophical feminism into a political cause. The discipline of this cause is obviously gender equality. Despite the disagreement about what it really means and how best to achieve it, something must be done.
This article discusses the people who are treated with compliments at a younger age are more likely to become a person with self confidence and have influence on the world. Yet, when giving them compliments at a young age develops gender roles. There is also a skewed idea within this person’s mind of what their expectation to achieve fulfillment and acceptance in life is. Maybe if we live in a world where we hear people being called “intelligent” or “hard-working” far more often than “beautiful”, we would not have this problem. Because it is our society’s value to appear perfect, it is common to become our own personal value.
Concerns with our own appearances can become obsessional. The constant checking of our appearances can even lead to social isolation. If it gets to a drastic level it can even lead to suicidal behaviors. Another aftermath of obsession is eating disorders, which is more prominent in women. The world should not govern your decisions. Attitudes should not shift because of the opinions of another.
There are three arguments: Those that argue that observers are unavoidably "cut off" from reality, those that argue that there is some way of "getting at" reality through the appearances, and those that reject the distinction. Common-sense and historically sources are what motivates the distinction between appearance and reality. People frequently find themselves in situations where they are presented with misleading appearances. Plato's philosphy of skeptism is included within the article. Other philosphers are included as well, including Descartes and Berkeley.
Th relation between the twin mistakes of homophobia and thinking God is indifferent about how we use our sexuality is unconsciously mentioned throughout the bible. Homosexuality was evident during the time of the apostles. Paul does describe both lesbian and male homosexual behaviour as “unnatural.” Some have argued this refers to what is natural to the people themselves, so that what is in view is heterosexual people engaging in homosexual activity and thereby going against their “natural” orientation. Paul may have been speaking in this tone because it may have been pertinent for his readers in Rome given their cultural context.
Our actions easily affect the people around us. By acting in a way of low self esteem, we are not only hurting ourselves but the people around us. Our friends and our siblings take our opinions crucially, even though it is not evident. By acting out of jealousy, we are repeatedly making terrible. We must become more aware of our thoughts and actions.
Many manage to fashion lives that many would envy, even though beneath it all they hold a deep amount of self-judgement and insecurities. Their reputations garner the deepest respect and admiration from others. Their disconnection between their inner feelings and their outer success causes them to hold back from making changes that would lead to far greater fulfillment. They often feel overwhelmed by minor situations.
This article rated men as more interdependent than women, deviating from the “universal” gender stereotype of male independence. Another study explored the cultural frames influence on the contents of gender stereotypes. They demonstrate that men are seen as possessing more of any traits that are culturally valued.

Men are stereotyped as independent and goal oriented; women are stereotyped as interdependent and oriented toward others.
We use the survival mechanism of judging others and ourselves to avoid danger and prevent harm from happening to us. Self-criticism leads to negative thought patterns, self-doubt, and anxiety. According to the Harvard Medical School, anxiety is a leading cause of gastrointestinal disorders, respiratory disorders and heart disease. To stop this from happening, you must reframe from your surroundings and become aware of the peopke are you and how you treat yourself. You can take actions to reverse this self-destructive behavior.
We judge ourselves countlessly throughout the day. We have unrealistic expectations and an idea of perfection, in which we desire. We criticize ourselves for "not being as good" as another. If we think we’re better than someone else, we don’t respect them. If we think we’re worse than somebody else, we feel insecure. Overall, we lack connection between other beings.
