Men and Women – Never Equal

This image was shared wth with me recently and when I saw it, well frankly I didn’t know where to begin.
There is nothing a man can do a woman can’t… but there are a few things a woman can do a man will never be able to do. Like bleed without dying; produce milk to nourish a child, and birth a new life. Hence the rise of patriarchy based in fear of women’s “power”. Paraphrasing Margaret Attwood: “”Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.”
Over the generations women have proved there is nothing – other than write their name in the snow – that a woman can’t do that was previously the ‘domain’ of men. Men and women will never be equal… but this doesn’t mean one is better than the other. What we are is equally VALUABLE. This is true feminism.
There are things I bring to the table my partner can’t and vice versa so by definition we can never be “equal”. But we are equally valuable. We focus on the wrong things IMHO. Until men and women realise their equal worth, and their worth to each other, we will always be in a mindless, unwinnable competition.
