~ Important Message ~

We want everyone in the LadiesOfHive community to succeed! We have seen some members, however, failing to properly cite the sources for images used in posts. This can cause trouble for your accounts, our community, and the Hive blockchain as a whole. Please review the following information and ask if there are any questions!

You can use any image PROVIDED THAT it is not copyrighted, and is free-for-use in a post. Your entry will be disqualified if you use a copyrighted image or a watermarked image. Plenty of free-to-use images can be found on these sites:

Even using images from sites such as these, though, it is a good idea to cite that the image is "free-for-use from Pixabay," or perhaps even give credit to the photographer (even though the site may say no such credit is necessary). Giving credit for the image will help to keep your account spotless and will help the photographer with more traffic to their page! If you took the photos, it's a good idea to say: "Photos by me" somewhere in your post!

At the bottom of every LadiesOfHive contest is credit to the photo that appears at the top:

Anyone can create such a clickable link in Markdown like this:


Please do not use images from Google, Pinterest, Flickr, etc., as those are not free-for-use! Please do not use images with a 'watermark' across them, as those are not free-for-use, either! Let's be a shining example to the rest of the blockchain in how to do things correctly! THANK YOU! 😘

This week, there is only one question
and we want to know:

August holds great significance in South Africa as Women’s Day is celebrated on the 9th. So, on Women's Day, this should be a good question for you ladies to answer. In the last contest, we talked about how women have experienced discrimination for being women, and how we're slowly gaining more equality as time passes. But...

What is a woman?

There are changing concepts of sex and gender in this digital age, and some children growing up are asking difficult questions. As Mothers and Grandmothers, we want to ensure that our children have all the answers and resources they need to live their happiest and most productive lives. If faced with the issue of dissatisfaction over their sex/gender, how would you address your children's questions pertaining to the changing concepts of sex and gender in this digital age?

The Hive blockchain uses UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
The contest ends each Saturday at 11:59 PM (23:59) UTC.

Allí esta el meollo mismo, la inquietante pregunta que nos traen está semana. Estaré leyendo como afrontar está nueva dificultad en este cambiante mundo.
¿cómo abordaría las preguntas de sus hijos relacionadas con los conceptos cambiantes de sexo y género en esta era digital?

Una semana de éxitos @ladiesofhive

Here is my entry. I am very excited to hear other's opinions on this! Good luck everyone! 🙂

Great research finding out more, now a proud mother, armed with knowledge, parents of beautiful daughter ready to guide. Thanks for interesting read, from another "Tomboy" 😀

Constant flux of change, keeping a good check on reality vs outside influence, thanks for joining in!

Wuaoo this week's question made me reflect a lot and put myself in the shoes of the children who are confused, in my participation I tried to make it as easy as possible. Thank you so much for generating this kind of thoughtful questions. Congratulations to the lady @joanstewart for creating such an easy and difficult question at the same time. Thank you

Wuaoo la pregunta de esta semana me hizo reflexionar mucho y ponerme en el lugar de los niños que están confundidos, en mi participación traté de hacerlo lo más fácil posible. Muchas gracias por generar este tipo de preguntas tan reflexivas. Felicitaciones a la señora @joanstewart por crear una pregunta tan fácil y difícil al mismo tiempo. Gracias.

Thanks for Woman's day greetings and entry, preparation through research empowers us to be cautious answering younger generation today.

Thank you. And have a happy day where you can celebrate your gender with freedom and joy.

Happy. Day to all women.

Thanks for entering contest, yes unconditional love for children is most probably strongest bond they cling to during age of questioning.

This is my entry.

This week topic is quite challenging. Good luck ladies.! ❤️

Answering children with honesty to the best of ones ability, thanks for concise sharing in contest.

I am honoured to be present. I find it to be rather challenging to have two girls, each with a different personality. My oldest daughter recently questioned why women must cook. Lol.

Tell her some of the best chef's in the world are men, so learning to cook delicious meals goes a long way !LOLZ

Actually many women don't cook, my little sister never cooked before she got married, now she excels in the kitchen.... She bakes all kinds of things I would never touch!

How do you genetically modify ducks?
Dump coca cola in the lake, because its quacktacular!!!!

Wanna try joining this, tho it looks challenging

A challenging subject.

Hola ladies felicidades a todas las mujeres de sudáfrica mi participación al concurso 👋

Enjoyed reading your entry, a challenge to consider in daily lives here.

The question is kind of hard to answer but I tried my best to share my opinion.
I hope, the readers who will read may respect my opinion too. Hihi.

Here's my entry. Thank you 🤗

Thanks for interesting answer and writing down your thoughts.

Thank you ma'am. ☺️
I appreciate your effort on reading my post. ☺️

Welcome and thank you for joining in the discussion.

What a fabulously brave question to ask! I applaud you @joanstewart and thank you for bringing this important topic to the table.

I don't feel to write a whole post on this topic (mostly because I'm trying to find a gentle, sustainable way to post on Hive and I'm currently out of juice) but I do want to say, in brief, that if I had children or grandchildren of my own I would say something like this (depending on my exact relationship with the child, the beliefs of the other adults who care of them and the age of the child):

Sweetheart, I love you so very much and want you to know I accept you as you are.

I know you have questions so let's talk about them. I might not have all the answers to your questions but I bet we can learn some of this stuff together. How does that sound?

Please tell me about what it feels like to be you.

I look forward to reading posts by any human in this group who personally does not identify with being cis-gendered. If that is you, you are welcome to put a link to your post/answer to this week's LOH question below this comment so that more people may find it.


I'd love to know how @blackdaisyft would answer this week's LOH question (if you have the space and interest to do so my love!)

Hey there Caroline! I agree with you, that was a really good question to ask, and not to easy to answer either 😱

So sorry for the delay, I was on vacation on the last few weeks and enjoying a much needed offline time hehehe 😊

I hope you are well my friend! I do need to catch up, I'll come by to your most recent post soon 😁😍

Much !LUV

A mothers love know no boundaries, keeping on track with honest answers, never straying or being led into false beliefs trying to fact check everything before taking action.

Thanks for brief visit, yes sometimes we don't keep up with everything happening at such a fast pace of late.

Thanks for heartwarming discussion in reply.

Muy buenos días , gracias a usted, aprecio su comentario y mirada reflexiva.

Soy de las personas que piensa que nada es proclive a estándares de excusas más que aquellas que nos imponemos por malas apreciaciones o creencias que nos impiden avanzar .

Deseo que tenga el mejor viernes posible @joanstewart

Very good morning, thank you, I appreciate your comment and reflective look.

I am one of those people who think that nothing is prone to excuses standards more than those that we impose on ourselves by misapprehensions or beliefs that prevent us from moving forward .

I wish you the best Friday possible @joanstewart

Each has to make decisions then be happy thereafter, time has changed where individuals should no longer be dictated to. Nothing in life is straight forward even with laws in place the scourge continues with gender based violence evident.

Happy Friday!

We are connected in the same line of thought, it is thus the differences do not separate us, it is the refusal to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences to encourage in our families and especially in our children tolerance, openness and acceptance of Diversity.

Teaching from childhood the value of respect for others, regardless of their economic status, country of origin, skin color, sexual preference, laws (cultural burden) can always make a difference. There is still much to do, we must not lower our cry for openness and inclusion in this era of digital knowledge.

Happy Friday . ☮️💜💎 @joanstewart

Estamos conectadas en la misma línea de pensamiento , es así las diferencias no nos separan, es el rechazo a reconocer , aceptar y celebrar esas diferencias para fomentar en nuestras familias y especialmente en nuestros hijos la tolerancia, apertura y aceptación de la Diversidad.

Enseñar desde la niñez el valor del respeto al otro , independientemente de su condición económica, país de procedencia, color de piel, preferencia sexual, leyes (carga cultural) puede hacer la diferencia siempre. Aun mucho por hacer , no debemos bajar nuestro grito por la aperture e inclusion en esta era del conocimiento digital

Thanks for entering with thoughts about our role in life today.

This question is captivating and interesting.
