Debunking the Perception that the Garage is Only For Men
Mar 02, 2022
When we say the garage, homeowners and residents would immediately turn to the man of the household.It’s a man’s cave where activities are considered masculine and concern typical male interests. The garage is a storage space for the family’s cars. Even though there are already many female drivers in our time, driving is still very much dominated by men. Girls are often ridiculed in their driving and are perceived as clueless with anything motoring concerned such as car repairs or replacing tires. Woodwork, often done in the garage, involves sawing and hammering that would commonly be categorized as a male job. Athletic gear for different sports such as skiing or biking is mostly used by men. In barbeque parties, men are often assigned to grill—the griller stored in the garage. Men are also often assigned with yard work, equipment of which are all lying in one’s garage. Even weightlifting is often regarded as masculine—home weights of which you store in your garage.To reiterate, the garage is more commonly seen as a man’s den. But come to think of it, gender has nothing to do with driving. Women can also learn how to change tires and repair any car damages. Women can engage in woodwork and make cabinets, shelves, tables, and other projects they could think of. Women can also be charged with grilling. They can also take care of the garden and electrical concerns in the house. Women also have athletic ability and could excel in any sport they want. Women have the power to lift weights. All of these activities have nothing to do with gender. All these can be done by both the male and the female, and a garage can be for any gender’s use. It could be occupied more by the women in a household, and nothing wrong with that.When we limit activities based on gender, we reduce the value of a space in half.
