Twitter Is Offended By Finland PM Sanna Marin Dancing With Friends. Is She Not Supposed To Have A Life Beyond Politics?
I have come to believe that people on Earth will have a problem with anything and everything a woman does. The double standards of the people and the male privilege collectively judge women who are doing nothing other than merely living their own lives and minding their own businesses. Why am I on a people-bashing spree, you ask? So, a video of Finland’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin has gone viral on the Internet wherein she is seen partying, dancing and singing, basically having a good time with her friends, and this has irked netizens.
There is so much hate spewing against Finland’s PM Sanna Marin that people have gone on to call her names like ‘cocaine-head’. And for what reason? Merely partying, that too, in a private place with her friends? She is also being criticised for attending music festivals and having a gala time before.
So, what I fail to understand here is that there are many male leaders and heads of state in the past that have committed scandals, been named paedophiles, have sexual harassment charges against them, have poor administerial skills and yet they have managed to pass the public scrutiny unscathed.
But all hell breaks loose when people see a female leader letting her hair down, being real, having fun and enjoying her life while being pretty damn good at her job and this is not acceptable to them? It is tiring to see people sitting ready to tear a woman down the moment she does something out of the box or rather does not fit in the box of stereotypes set by society. Get your priorities straight, y’ll!
But thankfully, sanity has not been completely wiped out from the planet as many people also came forward in support of her. They have gone on to say that she is merely living her life and trolling her for doing so is unacceptable and just toxic.
1- Finns are the ones to judge her performance as their PM
*PM in 30s👍
*Not indulging in making a larger than life image. Being like any other person, very human, very relatable. No fake show👍
3-This looks like a private party. What’s wrong? https://t.co/AdPxclTZWF

The surveillancing of female politicians has become a sport against democracy and gender equality.
Because of our toxic culture I always encourage female politicians to set boundaries with friends and family when posting private content. It sucks! https://t.co/e9oJavHaaa

Uhm. In a world where so many (male) world leaders have attended parties with child traffickers, I think the Finnish PM's partying is not a big deal. I kind of want to go to a party with her. https://t.co/ov4BL3zNIi

«Speaking as an American with some considerable experience in the subject "behavior unbecoming of an elected head of state" please let me assure you that "dancing to music" is, literally, not even on the Bingo card. The Prime Minister is fine» (с) https://t.co/0df2pFpMLC

what's the difference between Marin Sanna doing this and an older, boring, male politician going off playing golf for four hours 🥱🥱 https://t.co/aO0EhLLP1G

This woman, besides being PM, has a life outside of politics, leave her alone. I wish more politicians were like her: normal human beings instead of the same boring old people in suits who seem to have lost all spontaneity and fun in life and who all look the same. https://t.co/341BRvpSi1

Male politicians can have Bunga Bunga parties and get fellatio from interns but god forbid that a female politician attends a dance or two. https://t.co/n8YolLE6BW

And it’s not that PM Sanna Marin was out in public or behaving indecently. So, what is the problem here?
