Apparently, Justin Bieber has learned a lot regarding women's struggles. Ok, I'll bite. On Monday, in honor of International Women's Day, Bieber took to Instagram and divulged how much his wife, Hailey Bieber, has taught him about the struggles women face.


"I know i have been naive and haven't been empathetic to women in the past and have overlooked their struggles," Bieber wrote alongside an International Women's Day illustration. "I am learning everyday beside my wife." Bieber has always been vocal about his admiration and support for his wife, continuously posting videos and photos of his life with Hailey, whom he married in 2018.


Bieber's post comes a few days after Hailey praised her husband on his 27th birthday, expressing how Bieber is her "favorite human."

"Another year around the sun with you, another year of getting to love you, grow with you and laugh with you," Hailey wrote. "Happy 27th birthday." That's... sweet, I guess. In addition, Bieber continued to express his commitment to women's plights, and mentioned how he would never fully understand their struggles.

"I am committed to being better and more aware of the struggles women face that men never will!!" he continued.
"Women you are superhero's [sic] and deserve to be celebrated today and everyday."

I mean, he's not wrong.

Women have continuously struggled throughout history. It's not exactly breaking news. I guess it comes with the territory of not being born a man. While Bieber's appreciation for his wife is adorable at best, it falls a little flat. It's easy to admire someone you're legally bound to, who also happens to be a 5'7 model.

If Bieber is truly committed to being an ally for women, he needs to do a better job advocating for them, rather than posting an illustration on Instagram. Considering the majority of his fan base is female, Bieber should focus on elevating those voices, not just for duration of Women's History Month, but every day after that.

"I feel incredibly proud to say that I am a gay man and also an Olympic champion. When I was younger, I didn't think I'd ever achieve anything because of who I was."

These are words from the new Olympic gold medal winner, Team GB's Tom Daley, after he and partner Matty Lee took first place in synchronised swimming on Monday 26 July.

The best ways to show people closest to you that they are heard and appreciated

Everyone that is close to us wants to be heard in their relationship. It's for a good reason, too.

Strong relationships rely onl open lines of communication. Being a better communicator may appear daunting, but it's actually only a matter of honing a crucial skill: listening.

It appears to be straightforward. We (mostly) listen to our loved one's queries, opinions, anecdotes, gripes, and helpful suggestions. But how frequently do we actually pay attention?

We often register that they're chatting on the surface, waiting for our time to jump in and say what we want. Something has to be done about it.
