Men and women are both made by God, and we are both human, so women should be the same as everyone else. For example men, even though some men think they are physically, mentally and emotionally much stronger than women, at some times women can be physically, mentally and emotionally stronger.
Men and women were both born from the same planet, the same rock-we started out from scratch-the same species, and therefore we started out equal. Even though we started equal, opinions and unequality formed throughout early history, as one sex of the same species was 'chosen' to forever represent the softer, weaker and more gentle side to our race. In another view, men and women's jobs are equally important-as without the warrior-where would be the safety? And without the mother-where would be the warrior? Without either of the carefully crafted sex's, the perfectly crafted system would fall apart, so therefore men and women ARE equal-only just now are women changing their "role" that they had crafted for themselves at the beginning of our race, (homo sapiens,).
Gender inequality is still a major issue in our world. It not only causes society to teach men to think women as their sex toys and their cheap entertainment, as well as making them think that it's okay to make jokes of them, but it also is a problem for men too.
If a man is raped, or he is abused by a female relative, hardly anyone will take him seriously. This is because of gender inequality and society's view saying that men are abusers and women are victims when men can be too. They associate being a victim with 'femininity' and that is problematic.
It's sad that's already 2013 and that misogyny and gender equality is still a massive issue.
Who cares if we weren't designed to be equal we are in charge of ourselves. We don't have to listen to those useless old generations that are about to die off. Instead we can even shun them if we want. Since they didn't make us treat each other equally, they did a bad job when they were our age. That is something that former generations should be treated badly for. It's up to us to make sure future generations don't end UP SPITTING ON OUR GRAVES WHEN WE DIE.
Men should be equal to women. Why shouldn't a man be able to feel pretty and wear soft, colorful and lacy clothes, heels, dangling earrings and pretty red toe and finger nail polish? Men should also be able to wear pretty undergarments like satin panties and lace bras. Women today can wear whatever they want but if a man wears a lovely dress or skirt, he is considered an outcast, it's just not fair.
Shouldn't we all be equal? God made all of us not so that we can judge others and lessen their opportunities, but so that we are equal and we can share any opportunity possible with one another so we can grow both physically and mentally. Men and women are all human and should be treated with the same respect. Ignore the STEREOTYPES and you will see this too. Men aren't necessarily the breadwinners and women aren't necessarily the housewives, aren't we wise enough to realize this, they are stereotypes. It doesn't matter if your male or female we should all be equal. We work hard to get to places and everyone does so why are we treated differently?
It is very wrong that people should be discriminated against just because of their gender. Just because people used to think that men are superior, should we still think this? Haven't we moved on so far from this age and begun to think that most things were wrong? Everyone should be equal in this world.
Women can have children and men are naturally stronger. That doesn't mean a woman has to be a mother or a man has to be a police officer. We live in an age where we can be almost whatever we want regardless of gender and have the same opportunities. Neither gender is superior in skill which can only be earned through hard work and that skill is what we should be proud of, not what society has told us we should be or what we were naturally born with. And there is no generic brand of the genders either, man or woman, everyone has different beliefs, values, opinions, and wishes. In conclusion, women and men are different physically, but are equal in potential skill and value.
If everyone gets treated the same everyone will have the same chance in life. A man should not get paid more just because he is a man. Equal pay for equal work and one should not be limited to work in a category just because it happens to be what people of ones sex has worked with before. In a society where everyone is equal no one will have to feel like they are cast a side.
Men and Women should be equal. Everyone should be treated fairly in the world. We are all human. Man and Woman are both made from God, so women should be treated equally. They both work hard to get to places and so why are they getting treated differently. It just doesn't make sense. We should ignore the stereotypes and get into the real world.
Although we're all humans, it is impossible because most men are physically and mentally superior. Anyone who thinks not on mental aspect is delusional because almost all men can still think logically under pressure while women in most cases give in to emotions. Note: IQ does not measure intelligence. Intelligence partly covers mental strength. Women are emotionally strong and are able to multi-task that's why they SUPPORT men. Men focuses on one thing at a time and becomes barbaric when their minds become dull thus they take care child worse than women in most cases.
Women and men can never be equal because, a man will never be able to hit a woman without social repercussions. I'm okay with this, but the day men can beat women like they do with their fellow man, will be the day that we achieve true equality for all! Personally I hope to never see that day.
In an ideal society, no race or gender would be discriminated against. However, we live in a world where practicality is important. Women are already virtually equal; the "discrimination" against women arises from a natural difference in genders. Women were meant to nurture a family, and their bodies and minds are built as such.
This question is asked in a way that presumes right now men and women are not equal. While I strongly agree about women having the same right and responsibilities by law as men have, I understand there are differences among the 2 genders. The question is a liberal idiocracy, presuming we can change the current relationships among men and women. The truth is, all of us, women and men understand that we are different it is just that most people are not realizing it or don't want to share it with others.
We both have the same ability to think for ourselves and make decision, this gives as equal power and responsibility. If some women are oppressed my law or parts of population it is their fault for accepting their reality. The female handicap is not in their true ability or mental capacity, but in their belief that they are being treated unequally because of their vagi*a. All humans who can think and make their own decision are equal, but the question is how we use that ability. Women have not been so assertive in areas like politics and business for obvious reasons. Most of them don't think it's important and are not as "passionate" about it as men. Who's fault is it that so few women start their own business and make a lot of money? Men's? Finding fault in somebody else without first checking your own wrong doing is wrong thinking.
Women are equal when it comes to their mental abilities, but inferior because they don't use it the same way men do. We are the most successful species on our planet even with out gender differences, why change something that works?
Even among people of the same gender, there is no equality. Some men serve other men, some men server women, some women serve men, and some women serve other women. Some people are so poor, others are so rich; some are above the law, while the law is crushing others. Some people eat up other peoples wealth in the name of wallstreet, while others are suffering in mainstreet. Really i don't understand what is meant by equality. Will competition cease women become in charge of everything. Will everybody serve everybody when women become majority in governance and corporate world? While shouldn't children be equal to parents? The plain truth is that this is a complex we all came to meet, and as humans we would be dead before we can fathom everything. The struggle for survival can not permit equality. The best we can do is look at humanity as a whole!
Women have been depicted as chaotic compared to men in many ancient texts, the Enuma Elish, etc. What does that tell you? And no, I don't take ancient texts for truth (unlike many theists), but women are known to be more emotionally unstable whereas men are more logically based. That's why most of the highly respected professionals in the fields are men, not women.
Me and my good friends conversation-
We were treating girls differently , not caring what the heck they did "live and let live".
He stopped my thinking dead in my tracks.
You are a man , be a man and protect women.
And I though he had a very fair point.
Men should protect women and also treat them fairly
(Lots o men do Do this, police , courts, men in family and stuff)
So by that it is impossible to treat a women the same as a man by a man
Women do not protect men, so they can treat them as whoever.
Same way you can treat all animals the same way.
Women protect there family and children.
No woman can treat a child the same as an adult now can they? You can treat them fairly , with more rights , different rights etc, but not the same as far as "equal" goes.
And that is the way I think.
Before you ask ,yes I know , men and women are not completely the same as animals and people or children and adults. That is cause you learned they are not the same , same as men learned not to treat women like they do there "guy" pals.
It is hard for me to make an argument that women should be equal to men when I think we are far, far more superior. Men on the other hand are only as good as the control they have over their brain below the border, which usually isn't very much. Men will work their whole life to achieve something and throw it away for a few minutes. Women rarely do this.
