obadiah777: WHAT EXACTLY DOES 'EQUALITY' ENTAIL ? MAYBE WE CAN ANSWER THE QUESTION BETTER. BECAUSE MEN AND WOMEN ARE NOT EQUAL
1-ONE PEES STANDING UP THE OTHER SITTING DOWN
2-ONE HAS GBOLA, THE OTHER HAS VAYJAYJAY
3-ONE IS EXPECTED TO HUNT AND GATHER THE OTHER IS EXPECTED TO NURTURE
4-ONE GROWS FACIAL HAIR, THE OTHER DOES NOT
5-ONE IS EXPECTED TO DO MANUAL LABOR AND THE OTHER IS NOT ETC ETC ETC. I DONT SEE ANY EQUALITY ANYWHERE.

Your reasons do not make sense especially the facial hair part because men having facial hair is a sign of their not being as evolutionarily advanced as women (men are inferior in terms of evolution).
Just admit that you think women are inferior because the bible says so.

Gender equality is a misnomer because men and women can never be equal. They are complimentary. Just as you need positive and negative to produce electricity, you cannot have positive alone or negative alone producing electricity.

It is about giving women the opportunities to be something in life just like the men, so that the level of complement will be enhanced. It is not men taking over women's roles and women taking over men's roles, but rather empowering the woman for her to be able to fulfill her roles to a higher degree. That is what "gender equality" is all about.

The bible did not say women are inferior. A weaker vessel is not an "inferior" vessel. For instance, a PVC pipe is not as strong as a steel pipe, but can you use steel to make water pipes? The answer is NO.

manny4life: Theoretically, YES, Practical NO.

I have two coworkers who call me chauvinist, I said I wasn't but was only applying the simple rules. For instance, @ work, when the water runs out, I'll expect the ladies to go into the room where we stock up snacks and drinks, but no, it's the male coworkers who change the bottle water on the filter.

Out of curiosity, I asked one time in a meeting why is it only male workers that change water bottles, one reply was, females can't lift the bottle of water, so the males got to do it. I replied, there u go, I guess we're aren't equal after all.

Again, this is a minute example to broader scenarios why women are not equal to men. grin grin grin grin
You said it all. The problem is ladies drag hand where they're not specialist. If you get 2understand the areas they drag this foolish right U'll laugh. Eg U'll see a lady complaining that male n female soccer players should be paid equally. Sometimes some 'cos they believe men work they eat play tricks/prancks in work n when not rewarded they should blue murder, inequality. Thank God they hardworking 1s get rewarded. Sometimes they leave their specialities n d guys'll make those places work. Eg the pedicure n fashion industry. And alot of areas let me hold it 4now

Gender equality works well everywhere except in marriage.

often
times the most brilliant in a class is a girl
this is absolute falsehood. I dont know where you got this. I understand you want to see women have what ever they want, but thats no reason to tell blatant lies! We all kniw that in a troop of women, the few guys in their midst, in most cases take the day. Go to all classes and the top 5 in class i guarantee you, you will not find up to 2 girls. In some cases no girl at all.
