It Takes Balls to be a Pussy

Tecnica: Acrylic On Press Canvas

The slang words we use are unconsciously based on humiliating women and glorifying men. This is a situation that hurts both genders. While the female vagina is one of the strongest creatures in the world, capable of carrying a new creature for 9 months, it is used in slang to mean weakness, like “pussy”. The balls, which are the weakest parts of men, are turned into an indicator of power. It’s as if it creates a society where women have to be weak and even their strong features are humiliated. Likewise, it creates a society where men have to be strong at all times and where there is no room for weakness. However, a person can be weak and sometimes accepting this takes a great burden from one’s shoulders, and in a place where there is no room for mistakes, there is also a great pressure on men. The purpose of this work is that we should not fall into these traps that are ingrained in our society and that we are not even aware of in our daily lives. It is perfectly normal for women to be strong and men to be weak, and this is what needs to be accepted and normalized.
