Today, gender roles are increasingly mixed. Times change, and the role of a woman in the modern world changes with them. In order to know how it has changed, we found representatives of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and asked their opinion about who a woman is.

Tais, 24, Russia
Bisexual, an artist
Q: Who are better, men or women, in your opinion?
A: I cannot say who is better: a man or a woman. If I gave birth, I would like to have a boy. I do not know why, but probably, it is because it is easier to live being a man.
I believe that naturally all people are bisexuals, exactly as animals are.
One day, I just fell in love. She was astonishingly striking and talented .
Most likely, it was a creative admiration rather than just physiology.
Q: Who is a woman, in your opinion?
A: A woman is the embodiment of primeval power. She is the cause of all intrigues and wars. Furthermore, it is said that the real reason why Judas betrayed Jesus was Mary Magdalene.
Women are terrible. They fray your nerves and, to speak objectively, do not have a penis, so sometimes you just miss good sex.
There is a stupid test you can find on the Internet. You are asked what a running herd of horses and flock of gulls are associated with; answers show your attitude to men and women, respectively. So, my first answer is power, beauty and danger whereas the second one is a scream and a pile of shit.
Q: Could you give a piece of advice of how we need to treat women?
A: Be honest with a woman. Do not deceive and do not give an unnecessary hope. Truth is much easier to stand than hope is.
Q: What kind of difficulties do women have in the modern world?
A: It is not necessary for women to yield to the modern world.
Therefore, it is not necessary for women to yield to a wish of putting a mask on their face. I have met such women. None of them were happy, and almost all came to a bad end.
I am still a traditional on some issues. For example, I want to be truthful to a man I love; I want to support him and give birth to several children.
An ideal example of a woman is Sophia Loren.
Q: What kind of disadvantages do women have?
A: All women are born for love which they are not able to get. That is why, as Charles Bukowski used to say, all of them are to ‘suffer’. So, even if a woman chooses another way, it is still agony.
Q: What can you wish women on International Women’s Day?
A: Almost all women have a taboo of what they are never going to do. At least, they have it until they meet a man they will be eager to do these things for. So, this is what I wish them, to find this kind of guy.
Dana, 29, Russia
Lesbian, a poet
Q: Who are better, men or women, in your opinion?
A: Men are much better than women. Life is easier for them. They are allowed to be assholes.”
Q: Who is a woman, in your opinion?
A: Woman is inspiration. It is impossible for us not to love and not to be loved. Without it, we are not able to breathe. So, what are we going to do if we do not have oxygen? Only die. Women are my oxygen.
Q: What kind of advantages do women have?
A: Women feels much deeper. We feel everything. Pain, happiness. We feel torment. We feel love. We are as floating as are rivers and are as impalpable as the air is. Fire also can be found among us, but when there are earths, there are boring women.
Q: What kind of disadvantages do women have?
A: The ability to feel is not only our advantage. Sometimes, it is a shortcoming.
Q: What kind of difficulties do women have in the modern world?
A: I have too little to do with the modern world to talk about the difficulties women have in it. Of course, I live in it, but I do not really like it.
Q: Could you give a piece of advice of how we need to treat women?
A: I cannot give you advice about how it to treat a woman. All I can say is how you need to treat me – do not stroke me in the wrong way.
Q: What can we learn from women?
A: There are a lot of things we can learn from a woman. It depends on a lesson you want to learn. However, some women are really stupid, as stupid as, for example, I am.
Q: What can you wish women on International Women’s Day?
A: A woman must be a daughter, a mistress, and a mother.
Alena, 20, Russia
Transsexual.
Q: Would you like to become a woman?
A: I would like to be a woman and have already become one, almost. In spite of my intervening modification, I can say for sure, “I am quite happy.”
Q: Why would you like to become a woman?
A: It is too hard to answer the question why I want to be a woman. I think it is from my childhood. I put on suits and other man’s clothes and could not understand why I needed it. Meanwhile, I really envied my sister’s bows and high heels.
Nobody was able to understand me. I had only two options: to jump out of window or to begin altering myself. I had been pondering about it for a long time and have decided to leave my parents and do what I want, to be happy. So, this is how I became a transsexual person.
Q: Who are better, men or women, in your opinion?
A: I believe that it does not matter who you are: a man or a woman. First of all, you are a human.
Q: What kind of advantages do women have?
A: Women in our time have got used to being alone. So, it is not so difficult for them to be alone in comparison to men.
Q: What is a man, in your opinion?
A: Unfortunately, there are no genuine, loving and caring men any more. Tell it to the birds. All of them are selfish and too much self-confident.
Q: Do you think of a woman as a competitor?
A: No. I do not think of a woman as a competitor. I do not think that envy is a good feeling. If you see a girl who is more attractive than you are or more well-groomed, just take it as an example. Watch her.  But do not lose your confidence. There is always somebody ahead and behind you.
Q: What is a woman, in your opinion?
A: Woman is constantly packing, hysterics and caprices. But that is exactly what a woman is.
Q: What kind of difficulties do women have in the modern world?
A: Women are to be taken care of. These days, it is so hard to find that special one who will be with you forever, who will love you and give herself to you.
Q: What we can learn from women?
A: Can we learn anything from a woman? Without a doubt, we can. Even if we are talking about platitudes. Just visit a school. All teachers are women. They are much more intelligent than men.
Q: What can you wish women on International Women’s Day?
A: Nowadays, a woman must be not only independent, but be ready to protect herself. Go straight on and do not stop.
Never return to your past. That is always a losing variant.
