How Girly Are You Actually?



While I do believe that there is nothing known as feminine or masculine characteristics since all the genders have both of these qualities. It is not restricted to a particular gender. The reason why we are discussing it anyways is that some of the vitally important traits are linked to femininity and hence should be discussed.

Let us discuss a few of them.


Empathy as we all know is something that the world really lacks. The literal meaning of it is the ability to see the world from someone else’s perspective. It often creates bonding among humans and it is generally seen as a feminine characteristic but as you might have realized that it is such a needful feeling in the 21st century. You could call it as an indirect reason but we could safely say that many of the innocents who turn to gruesome criminals are because no one had ever empathized with them. The lack of empathy in our society had resulted in a spike in criminal activities. We as a society could work towards it.


Intuition as I had mentioned in one of my previous posts is that it is one of the most beautiful things a human could ever have. It is basically “knowing things without knowing it”. Logic may not support it but it is very real and psychologists and scientists are researching this complex human behavior. However, the reason why it is considered feminine is that it doesn’t rely on logic and patriarchal societies consider women as less logical than men. It is completely false since intuition, as we all know, can be surprisingly accurate.


Even-tempered and capable of being calm during every storm. Patience is definitely a learned skill and an oh-so-helpful one to have in everyday situations.

There are many other qualities that are considered feminine but remember one thing that men could also possess these so-called ‘feminine qualities’ and vice-versa. We should learn to imbibe each of them since it makes us a balanced human being.

“Stop it.” Isabelle tapped a booted foot in the shallow water at the lake’s edge. “Both of you. In fact, all three of you. If we don’t stick together in the Seelie Court, we’re dead.”
“But I haven’t-,” Clary started.
“Maybe you haven’t, but the way you let those two act…” Isabelle indicated the boys with a disdainful wave of her hand.
“I can’t tell them what to do!”
“Why not?” the other girl demanded. “Honestly, Clary, if you don’t start utilizing a bit of your natural feminine superiority, I just don’t know what I’ll do with you.”

“She was a free bird one minute: queen of the world and laughing. The next minute she would be in tears like a porcelain angel, about to teeter, fall and break. She never cried because she was afraid that something ‘would’ happen; she would cry because she feared something that could render the world more beautiful, ‘would not’ happen.”
― Roman Payne, The Wanderess

“I am a strong and powerful woman.
I am proud to be a woman and I celebrate the qualities that I have as a woman.
I am not defined by other people’s opinion of who I should be or what I should do as a woman. I determine that, not anyone else.
I am not passed up for a position, title, or promotion because I am a woman.
I fully deserve all the good things that comes my way.
Irrespective of what anyone might think, being a woman places no boundaries or limits on my abilities.
I can do anything I set my mind to.
I celebrate my womanhood and I am beautiful both inside and out.”
