Curse of being a female

Years ago when I visited India, there was an ad on TV that shows, how families give more food for their sons and leftovers for their daughters. The reason is simple.. the daughter goes to some other famiy after she gets married, whle the son stays home and work in the fields.. why waste money on a daughter. The ad was trying to show how biased we are to our woman.
I remember my indignation then and I couldn’t believe parents can treat their kids differently. Two xx doesn’t mean less food.
Few days ago, my neighbour’s kids(girls) came to play to our house. we were just having our lunch and I asked them to join us. We had rice, gravy and chicken nuggets, and they asked me if they can have extra nuggets and I said ofcourse. One of the girls then said to me” aunty you are so nice, my grandma makes nuggets only for my brother”
These kids are Canadians(of indian origin), Their parents were born here.yet the cutural crap still binds them. You are never free of sexual bias.. even if you are well educated and live in a bungalow worth more than half a million dollars.
