Konsep emansipasi lahir atas adanya ketidakadilan berupa ketidaksamaan hak yang diberikan antara pria dan wanita yang didasarkan pada alasan gender, yang mana diyakini adalah bahwa setiap orang memiliki kesempatan yang sama untuk mengembangkan diri dan diperlakukan secara adil sebagaimana mestinya: tidak didiskriminasi, tidak dipandang sebelah mata, tidak dieksploitasi.

Keberadaan konsep emansipasi tidak berarti wanita melupakan kodratnya, baik sebagai istri maupun ibu. Tidak berarti juga dijadikan alasan untuk kepentingan pribadi - bukan sebagai upaya agar pria semata-mata mengalah kepada wanita, tetapi upaya untuk pria menghargai wanita.

Semoga konsep emansipasi ini tidak disalahartikan dan disia-siakan sebagaimana Kartini dan banyak orang lainnya, baik pria maupun wanita, memperjuangkan kesetaraan ini. Semoga perjuangan terus berlanjut dan menghasilkan lebih banyak wanita kuat lainnya untuk terus berkarya dan memberikan kontribusi yang berarti di bidangnya masing-masing demi kemajuan bangsa dan kehidupan yang lebih baik di masa mendatang.

Selamat hari Kartini.

The concept of emancipation was born over the injustice of inequality of rights between men and women on the ground of gender, which is believed that every person has the equal opportunity to develop his/her self and to be treated fairly as it should be: not being discriminated, not being underestimated, not being exploited.

The existence of the concept of emancipation does not mean women forgetting about their nature, both as a wife and a mother. It does not also mean that it can be used as an excuse for personal interests - not as a way for men to yield solely to women, but as a way for men to respect women.

May the concept of emancipation is not misunderstood and wasted as Kartini and many people, both men and women, fight for this equality. Hopefully the struggle continues and brings out more powerful women to keep working on and giving meaningful contributions in their respective fields for the sake of the nation and a better life in the future.

Happy Indonesian women’s emancipation day.

Happy Indonesian Women’s Emancipation Day

"Kami berikhtiar supaya kami teguh sungguh, sehingga kami sanggup diri sendiri. Menolong diri sendiri. Dan siapa yang dapat menolong dirinya sendiri, akan dapat menolong orang lain dengan lebih sempurna pula."

Surat R.A. Kartini kepada Ny. Abendanon
12 Desember 1902


“Dan biarpun saya tiada beruntung sampai ke jalan itu, meskipun patah di tengah jalan, saya akan mati dengan merasa berbahagia, karena jalannya sudah terbuka dan saya ada turut membantu mengadakan jalan yang menuju ke tempat perempuan bumiputra merdeka dan berdiri sendiri.”

R.A. Kartini, Habis Gelap Terbitlah Terang

Kadang kita melihat wanita sebagai makhluk Tuhan yang lemah, tapi justru dari wanitalah banyak lahir inspirasi kekuatan.

Thought

Sometimes I feel like time is really evil. It drags us to keep moving on from the existing moment. From the most planned and awaited one.

For example, of course not the real situation of why I have this kind of thought, my winter break. You know, it feels just like yesterday the tickets were booked and the itinerary was settled. I remember saying :
“it’s still 2 more months, yet it’s coming! It’s coming!”.

Then the time dragged me to the moment when I was in Manarola and I thought :
“Gosh… it’s finally happening, it’s here, I AM here, look.. it’s just in front of my eyes.”
Then i hoped that the moment stayed forever. Or less, the time tripled. Or at least, it went in slow motion.

After that, the time dragged me again to the moment when I was sitting on a friggin’ cold chair in a room with numbers of students, about to answer the very first question of the exam and I thought :
“fcuk, the holiday’s really over, isn’t it?”

..

What I am saying is, for those planned and awaited moments happening (finally), I can’t pause it so the moment is eternal. I can’t rewind it so I can feel it again. I can’t relive it so I can make another new experiences.

It’s …. gone. Your time is up. Now keep moving and make new ones.

I believe you’ve been knowing this for a long time that the time doesn’t give you the time to reminisce. She just slaps you on your face and shouts “gooooo, bitch!” Ya, if time had gender, it would be a girl because she is a bitch. Maybe I should learn a lot from her.

…anyway sorry for narrating without pattern. I’m actually half asleep.

"Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you."

thought

Just read an article titled “20 things every woman should do before she gets married”. I know it’s lame. I also know i am not that close in getting married. What i know is that i realized i did most of them. Some are great experiences, like traveling, splurging, and learning to cook; yet some are awful things to do, on which i did, which i won’t mention, and which i still regret until now.

There are also things in the list that i haven’t done yet, but somehow i manage myself not to do it, like stuffs involving third party. Well, I am a monogamist, and i think it’s pretty clear that i don’t want to change who I am. Even if i am single, i don’t plan to fool around.

What’s convincing, what i feel there’s still a hope to be better, is that there are few good stuffs in the list that i have been doing right now, like focusing on further education, living abroad, etc. It is calming to know that there’s still goodness in me, that i am not a waste, and that there are lots of lessons that i’ve been learning for a better self.

It turns out living abroad does teach me to stand by myself. It is hard to stand again my feet after i fall while there are no people i love around to help. It is hard to find my own confidence again after i lose it even if my people keep saying that they are just one-click away. So yes, it is something that i can survive.

There is a quote from Lily on HIMYM :
“Ok, yes it’s a mistake. I know it’s a mistake, but there are certain things in life where you know it’s a mistake but you don’t really know it’s a mistake because the only way to really know it’s a mistake is to make the mistake and look back and say ‘yep, that was a mistake.’ So really, the bigger mistake would be to not make the mistake, because then you’d go your whole life not knowing if something is a mistake or not. And dammit, i’ve made no mistakes! I’ve done all of these: my life, my relationship, my career, mistake-free. Does any of this make sense to you?”

Quoting that doesn’t mean that i make an excuse to make mistakes. No, mistake is a mistake, and i do feel bad about it. It’s just that maybe that is what i need to go through.

So what i found broadening from the article is that maybe there are some experiences in life that i need to go through so that i can learn more and take the benefits out of them as the basis for the life ahead of marriage. It is not about who gets married sooner, it is about who stays and makes it last. Make sure we’re ready for it.

John Legend - All of Me

What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
Got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
'Cause I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you

Lykke Li - Until We Bleed

I’m naked
I’m numb
I’m stupid
I’m staying
And if Cupid’s got a gun
Then he’s shootin’

Lights black
Heads bang
You’re my drug
We live it
You’re drunk, you need it
Real love, I’ll give it

So we’re bound to linger on
We drink the fatal drop
Then love until we bleed
Then fall apart in parts

You wasted your times
On my heart
You’ve burned
And if bridges gotta fall
Then you’ll fall too

Doors slam
Lights black
You’re gone
Come back
Stay gone
Stay clean
I need you to need me

So we’re bound to linger on
We drink the fatal drop
Then love until we bleed
Then fall apart in parts

Now we’re bound to linger on
We drink the fatal drop
Then love until we bleed
Then fall apart in parts

Oui, Le Plus Beau du Quartier, Petite Amie!  ; )

Regardez-moi
Je suis le plus beau du quartier
J’suis l’bien aimé
Dès qu’on me voit
On se sent tout comme envouté
Comme charmé, hum
Lorsque j’arrive
Les femmes elles me frôlent de leurs
Regards penchés
Bien malgré moi, hé
Je suis le plus beau du quartier, hum, hum, hum

Est-ce mon visage
Ma peau si finement grainée
Mon air suave
Est-ce mon allure
Est-ce la grâce anglo-saxonne
De ma cambrure
Est-ce mon sourire
Ou bien l’élégance distinguée
De mes cachemires
Quoi qu’il en soit
C’est moi le plus beau du quartier, hum, mais

Mais prenez garde à ma beauté
A mon exquise ambiguïté
Je suis le roi
Du désirable
Et je suis l’indéshabillable
Observez-moi, hum, hum, hum
Observez-moi de haut en bas
Vous n’en verrez pas deux comme ça
J’suis l’favori
Le bel ami
De toutes ces dames
Et d’leurs maris
Regardez-moi

Regardez-moi, hum, hum
Je suis le plus beau du quartier
J’suis l’préféré
Mes belles victimes
Voudraient se pendre à mes lacets
Ca les abîme
Les bons messieurs, eux
Voudraient tellement m’déshabiller
Ca les obstine
Bien malgré moi, oui bien malgré moi
Je suis le plus beau du quartier, mais

Mais prenez garde à ma beauté
A mon exquise ambiguïté
Je suis le roi
Du désirable
Et je suis l’indéshabillable
Observez-moi, hum, hum, hum
Observez-moi de haut en bas
Vous n’en verrez pas deux comme ça
J’suis l’favori
Le p’tit chéri
De toutes ces dames
Et d’leurs maris
Aussi, oui
