A Facebook friend posted the below picture today.
It did not sit well with me.
"Women were created to do everything a man can't do." Technically, the only thing a man can't do is to gestate. So does that mean that women were created solely to gestate?
I understand that men and women are different, and that complementary people make good matches. Yet the idea that women are being lessened somehow when they are seeking parity for doing things that men also do, is just not right.
Equality does not mean sameness. It means equal treatment in status, rights, and opportunities. Whether we choose to maintain that status, to use those rights or to take advantage of those opportunities, is up to us.
Let us hope that we will, some day, achieve parity.
