So, anyway, back on topic...
[quote]<strong>Is a woman equal to a man? No! Anyone who said that a woman is equal to a man must be out of his or her mind.
Is a man given a higher role than woman?
Yes. But... 5.2 might be is also a higher value than 4.8, but the difference is not that much (5.2 is 108% of 4.8).
A man might have 5.2 in ability and role S but only had 4.3 in ability and role T. While woman might have 4.8 in ability and role S, but had 5.7 in ability and role T.
So as you can see, man and woman aren't equal.
Giving women equal rights and equal role in everywhere sort of way is nothing more that a way to made them miserable. Women are treated as men, aren't that cruel?
But nevertheless, despite the gender inequality, we men must take care and protect women. Because... Well... It's just our role!</strong><hr></blockquote>
I understand and agree with the sentiment that men and women are not identical
, but that is not an argument against equality. If, to the extent it is possible, there is equal opportunity for all individual human beings, then those with talent in S will gravitate toward S, those with talent in T will gravitate toward T, and the question of whether or to what extent there are differences between the two (actually eight!) genders will be effectively mooted.
Is this the definition of equality that you are working from? Or do you mean a state in which it is assumed that men and women are identical (which is, essentially, a state that ignores individuality in toto)? Could you give an example where equality would make a woman miserable? Would this hold for all women? Most? If most, what about the women for which it does not hold?
Finally, does this equality make men miserable?
I'm sorry if it seems like I'm putting you on the spot, digix
You posted an idea that intrigued me, that's all.
