75. Ready-to-wear thinking. Prêt-à-penser.

3 0 0

We cannot take on off-the-peg visions like hot cakes. 'Prêt-à-penser' mottoes about women travel around too often.

Shrink wrapped ideas and prefabricated thoughts are a result of sloth and laziness. Ready-to-wear thinking means absence of critical awareness and lack of ground-breaking judgments. Rubber-stamping packaged thinking and taking over blindly what other people have claimed to be the very truth is a sign of indolence.

Prejudices, simplistic verdicts and half-truths are rampant in all levels of society and are leveling down women to an identical, uniform, homogeneous entity: a ready to wear species, a Prêt-à-Porter class.

Men may have the bad habit to condense women to a toy, a nanny or a mother and shrink-wrap them into a vehicle they can maneuver in the background.

Many men remain spoiled boys that have never grown up. Women are prepared to raise them and take pain with patience, both as a condescendant contribution to supercilious compassion and as a proof of the eminence of their sense of worth.

If we are really ready for thinking, not the traditional, conventional, rehashed thinking, but the exploratory and adventurous thinking, we can move forward and discover the astounding appeal of new mind-blowing visions.

Recognizing a problem may help us to understand and solve a problem. Rather than lying down and selling our sound judgment short, let us appeal to the opulent granary of our memory and explore the green pastures lingering in our mind
