The recent exploration craze taking over Millennials has done more than explode the travel-blog database online; it has also carved out a new tribe of dangerously fearless women.
In the ’50s, women were homemakers. The ’60s cemented our place as the central cogs in the nuclear family unit. In the ’70s, women fought for their autonomy. From the ’80s to the early 2000s, we have balanced corporate achievements with motherhood.
Now, the current woman waits for no one, marches to the beat of her own drum and creates her own life. Here are the reasons we traveling women are dangerous:
1. You can’t shame us with your dogma. We think for ourselves.
Women who use their passports often also radically use their minds. Dogma is defined as a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true. Basically, it’s regurgitating someone else’s point of view without questioning it.
Growing up, we were taught wearing modest clothing is commendable, and remaining a virgin for as long as you can makes you a demure woman deserving of marriage. We learned the naked body is shameful, and that it provokes strong reactions from men. It’s best to just cover it up.
Seeking pleasure is selfish. Judging others shows your moral superiority.
While we were riding on the back of a truck in the middle of the Sahara or diving to the bottom of a waterfall in Chiapas, something strange happened. A turning point occurred, and the real world smacked us in the face.
