Women: The Weaker Sex
Are women the weaker sex?
Yes we are. Physically we are weaker. Are we less compitent? Less motivated? Do we have less to contribute to society? No. We have a vast amount of things to offer of our own accord as women. I tend to believe that the whole concept of the phrase, "weaker sex" has been taken completely out of context with women screaming equal rights with the sole intent to "show men up", to prove something that doesn't need to be proven. I believe some women may even be offended and possibly ashamed of, well, being a woman. I know I'm certainly not ashamed and thoroughly enjoy being a woman. As a matter of fact I revel in it.
As a divorced mom, I have had to carry both roles. Making all decisions, repairs or finding someone who could, fighting to keep my job when my children were sick and nobody to care for them while I worked, going out in the cold to scrape the ice off the car window each winter morning. I don't do cold very well. Ccomming home to fix supper, mow the lawn, hang out wash, clean the house and then try to spend some time with the kids before bathing them and goin to bed to start all over the next day. My point is I've done the mans role thing and they can have it.
I like the woman deal much better. God knew what he as doing when he created both sexes. Why fix something that isn't broken. Face it, it isn't society that placed our role on us it was God. It's been that way from the beginning and it worked. It has nothing to do with being less of a person because you're a woman. Everything about us both men and women is to balance each other out. I like it when a man opens a door for me. It boggles my mind when women scream discrimination or are offended by it. It's a curtousey, a kindness and it feels good. Unfortunately not as many men will do this anymore for fear of getting slapped.
Women were made to be soft and nurturing, and we are strong in our own right without having to compete with men. They are different in all aspects, accept it, get over it, deal with it. Putting on boots and a hard hat won't change a thing, you'll just come home dirtier and more tired but still a woman and still have a full days worth of things to get done. Don't blame the men it was your choice to accept both roles.
Why fight it? Women are great. Don't sell yourself short. We have the ability to grow a tiny human in our bodies and then turn around and with that same body, provide the food to feed that child. We have the ability to raise that child with an alarming amount of love and patience. We are nurses in our own right and never had to have formal training. We are chefs, nutritionists and accountants. We can efficiently manage a household all on our own and can do all those things at the same time. If we want to work outside the home, fine it's a choice for us, it isn't for men. Their role is provider. A much harder and unforgiving, sometimes thankless job. Oh you think your jobs mentioned above as a woman are thankless. That's a pity. You don't think your husband who has worked hard all day and gives you his paycheck to take care of things, and makes sure you have food and clothing and a roof over your head, fixes the car or does the yard work etc.,isn't happy to come home to a hug and a kiss and a hot meal. Well I know If roles were reversed I'd be happy. What's so wrong with having the responsibility to provide a peaceful atmosphere for the one person you love most in the world or at least should anyway?
What about the child who smiles up at you because you are everything to him or her. You are a chauffer who may not get paid but gets the privilege to hear all the idle chit chat and little secrets of the gigling children in the back seat.
What is wrong with women today? All I hear from some is why should I "have" to stay at home. Well You know, you don't have to but why would you want to go out and subject yourself to that daily dog fight if you didn't have to? If you are lucky enough to have a man who provides, rejoice, get a hobby or join a club if you're bored and want to fill your day but enjoy who and why you are. Women are not weaker. We don't have to prove anything. Enjoy who you are. So go get your girlfriends together, go out and celebrate being a woman.
