Teach men what they need, 

not how to be masculine. 

Teach them how to love

instead of telling them to be tough.

 

Teach them that there are no rules

that dictate their personality

and which are necessary for them to adhere to.

They can live without these boundaries.

 

Stand against those advertisements

which bifurcate between the ideas

of masculinity and femininity

rather than advertising humanity.

 

Don’t connect everything

with one’s gender identity.

Teach them to pursue any career

without any stereotypical barrier.

 

Do the same with young girls and women. 

Do not influence

or force them

by restricting them

with a boundary of stereotypes around them.

 

Gender is created by society

and so it can be broken easily

if we start to believe 

in giving priority

to a person’s individuality.
