[I told K that I considered the title of the then popular book, "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", gender-biased. She replied by saying, "feminist, aren't we?"]
i’m not actually a feminist, at least not a true one. for instance, i have no objection on females taking parts in business or tech or science or even philosophy, but i’m still bothered by the [feminist] idea that complete authority to such valuable resource as female reproductive system is given to female individuals (of course i’m not implying that a state-owned company should “exploit the resource to the fullest benefit of the society” or something like that).
[Later, I told K that I think the public messages on our local tv, which encourage the society to lend a hand to women during pregnancy and childbirth (that the society should take some responsibility), are so non-feminist.]
it’s just that in my case it’s my mom who plays the “Rich Dad” part (not implying that she is filthy rich). in fact, a lot about me could be summed up into a few words she once said, which are more or less: “I couldn’t see [Lucky] as capable of being either a shopkeeper or a corrupt government official. I wonder if this kid has any future.” (she is a die-hard shopkeeper.)
