      That would defeat the purpose of living in harmony and being happy, just like right now, in society, where men refuse to see women as equals.

      Gender discrimination is still a problem. It happens more than most want to admit. There are too many people, who refuse to pay attention to what is happening around them or to do something when they do see something, except in some cases, where truly good deeds are done.

      It will continue on until more people realize equality among humanity doesn't mean the downfall for humanity. It actually means the complete opposite.

      The "label" makers, who have narrow-minded views, either because they think themselves better than others or have some religious view opposing, are the ones doing all the damage.

        Gotta agree with Cagsil here - except add that even our idea of 'equality' is a label, man and women cannot be 'equal' because we are different, we can only have a more balanced relationship. It is the labelling,  as Cags says, but also it is the unneccesary dividing into labelled pieces that cannot be reconciled like approaching the problem through the divisiveness of feminism.

          So........ What Exactly are you saying??? hmm

          Do you mean that it was a waste of time for those women who burnt their bras??? hmm

          I think men in general are terrorfied that such an event could happen.  It amazes me that women would even consent to wearing burkas or anything else that men dictate.

          Go Girls.... Kick some butt lol

          Then you are not agreeing with me.

          Equality is equals in every aspect, simply because you're human.

          One man's potential is no greater than one woman's potential. Thus, they are equal.

            This is the way it should be, but as we know in many parts of the world women are basically nothing but property or worse. I even feel it at work from some of the men that seem to think they are superior...even though I am more productive and constantly being noted for my work. They think I get this recognition because of my looks not the effort I put into my work.

              Is that something you think is happening or are you actually seeing in the people you work with, as in their actions or treatment or facial expressions?

              I'm just curious to hear what you have to say. Please do tell? smile

                Sometimes they say things when they think I'm not able to hear them or someone will tell about what goes on while I'm not around..It doesn't really bother me..I know my work is solid and there is no way they can deny that fact. I'm a pretty kick ass chick at work!! lol

                  Men are gifted with two brains, but unfortunately they do not work together - why not use that fact?

            How can people with organically different roles in society be equal?

            It is pointless making that statement unless you can define how a father can equal a mother for instance, different roles different requirements.

            I firmly believe in a better negotiation between man and woman but equal infers that one is greater than the other and any change is only about a balance of greatness if we take that route. Feminism is more about superiority among women than equality - I forget who said that but it points out the problem.

    And would you embrace that change in India??? hmm
    Maybe teach your poor to allow girls to become educated so they aren't discriminated against?? hmm
    And for you personally.....
    It would mean that you would have to dump your Bollywood Hubs on your local actresses and start writing about real stuff that contains original content! hmm

        I say that because the men I work with are lazy and not dedicated to doing the job that needs to be done, they would rather go drink or whatever it is they do..Thats why I get promoted before them and make more money than them..I'm only 25 and make more than some men who have been doing this for ten years.. I ROCK!! lol...Really I do!! lol

          A lot of men really are lazy and fail to provide a day's work for a day's pay.  I discovered this during the summer of 1968 when working in an underground phosphate mine in Montana.  On that job, you could earn "day's pay" at so much per hour--or, if you were both skilled and ambitious and part of an excellent 2 or 3 man team, you could "make contract", in which your pay was based on how much phosphate ore you mined in a given week.

          All that summer, about three months in total, I'd been assigned as a "fourth man" (on day's pay) to a superstar 3 man team who were favored by the bosses.  They were stopers who regularly made contract, drilling and blasting, while all I did was sit in one spot, moving levers back and forth, mucking ore away from the mining "face" and several hundreds of yards downslope to dump into the chute to await transport to the portal.  In most such cases, the person doing the job I was doing would have been part of the crew itself, not an add-on, and would have the "slusher operator" would have rotated daily, but this situation was unique.

          Anyway, the point to all this is that after that stope was finished, the 3 man crew moved to another area and I was reassigned to work with another partner.  But at the end of that time, those 3 men presented me with a "parting gift"--a bottle of Jack Daniels black label whiskey. 

          I was startled.  "All I did was do my job!"

          They looked at me with incredulity:  "Do realize how RARE that is?"

          Until then, no, I guess I hadn't.  Since then, yes, I've figured it out.  I was 25 at the time.

    I'm gonna get a lot of flack from the women over this, but I'm just being honest: I don't want to be a man. I enjoy being a woman. I like being treated like a lady (I know - ugly word!). I like being taken out for dinner, having my chair pulled out for me, and having doors being opened for me. I totally believe that males and females who do the same job equally well should be paid equal wages. I also think if girls/females want to hunt, fish, play sports, lift weights, etc, they should be able to. If they want to be doctors and lawyers, more power to them.

    But I don't want to be the same as a man. I guess it's my old-fashioned Southern heritage, but I like cooking for a man. I like taking care of a man and nurturing a man. In turn, I like to be taken care of by a man, too. I'm not talking about being financially taken care of by a man.

    Does anyone understand what I'm trying to say??

        You seemed to be an excellent employee. You go the extra mile by putting in more yet productive hours at work, write well, and display analytical ability by conducting accurate analysis consistently. Likewise, I would not mind having you on my team as a colleague or superior.

        During my years in school and in the workplace, I have encountered several women who were superstars. Likewise, I have no problem with qualified women leading companies and this country.

        No human being wants to feel shut out or slurred by another, especially a group of others, many men today hang out in groups to protect themselves and also agree to demean women, it is out of fear of what women can do, they mostly have issues with their mothers from when they had to obey her....so when they grow up they want to be free, so they try to intimidate women to prevent them from having control over them.  Women have to stand up and show they are who they are, but not to say, in the home, and in the bedroom they should be like a man, we are made soft and curvy, different from men on purpose, and we need different things to feel fullfilled.  It is our nature to nuture, and compliment the needs of our mates.

      yes, I understand and feel the same in most respects. but I do enjoy a man cooking for me, there's something very nice about that, and that he enjoys it.

      I think men and women are equal, why should they not be? we evolve and change. I'm not someone's cave woman. the relationship should be based on respect and understanding, not expectations because of gender.

      I've always been a tomboy on the feminine side. I love sports, being outside, getting dirty but I also love pampering and feeling like a woman, the girl stuff.

      equality in the work place is slowly happening, but the woman has to work so hard to get there. that's why so many women have their own businesses. also there are now more women than men graduating from college and going on to obtain higher degrees of education.

    I was very interested in the Security Teams at the Academy Awards last night and I noticed that the women security guards were very vigilant and alert about all kinds of details, they were essentially performing a "male role" in this important job of protecting our event, I felt very safe among them and did not feel less protected because the team was not all men. cool

        Hee Hee, It was not shown on the television,  but during the whole week of preparation for the Academy Awards Program, pre-recording, reheasals and set-up, etc, the Security Guard Force kept growing day by day, by the time of the event, there were Hundreds of Security Guards, thousands of police officers, plain clothes security and National guard, I am sure there were security there that no one actually saw as well, but I had to notice how the female guards were very vigilant with their assignments and several of the women were supervisors, delegating to many male security guards.  The entire environment was trained and in alert, it felt very safe.

    The soul is neither mail nor female
    We will reincarnate many time coming back as a different sex each time depending on what our earthly lessons call for.

    Mans role is no different from a womans
    a womans role is not different from a mans

    it takes a woman and a man to bring about the birth of a child
    making them equal

    physical differences do not mean a thing

    if you want your children to be allowing of others dfferences whether that be race or gender you must be allowing of them as individuals as they grow up and you must model yourself and be allowing of others

    men and woman both will swear that they treat they boy children they same as their girls children but they do not

    of this battle of the sexs would not be going on

    there is a new generation that is more allowing coming into being but it will take many more decades to rid this generation of the hate for the female gender and the hate for all differences of other human beings.

    ...to learn and grow in love and relationship together

    Women were put here for a different type of strength,than a man.A man may be physically stronger than a women,but a women is emotionally stronger than a man.He may be able to bust his ass to feed his family,which will keep them alive.But a woman will bust her ass to keep her family together with love and nurturing.Most men wouldn't be willing to birth a child,then again,most women wouldn't be willing to lift bricks to build a home.It all goes hand in hand.It works just the way it was meant to work.Leave it alone and play your part.
