I don't really get what the original poster is trying to say anyway. Yeah, men and women are equal. But they're also usually quite different and often serve different roles. I think it's naive, contrarian, and unnecessarily contrived political correctness to pretend otherwise. The obvious example that immediately springs to mind is that men can't give birth or breast feed, and as such, don't tend to have the same connections with their children; being a mother is not the same as being a father, and that isn't just about merely physical differences like discrepancies in testosterone and estrogen. It's not as if men and women need to be the same anyway.

But, as with most topics on this forum, I don't know why people would care about the opinions of internet randoms for a serious topic in the first place.

Sounds like you don't have much faith in adoption or formula milk. You're also ignoring the different roles that parents play in raising kids. Some mothers are the enforcers, and some fathers are house husbands.

Meh. women and men will truly be equal when the same number of women as men are in the front lines of war dying for their country. i'm not talking about helping out the wounded but firing a gun, getting maimed or killed. If there is to be real equality then have women included in the drafts? (if they already are, then correct me)

That's just an aspect that I think is important. Of course there are many more factors that contribute to the equality of genders...

the stereo type iv run into is that girls dont play cool games.a guy i met asked me what games iv played and i said uncharted, god of war, batman, tony hawk pro skater, need for speed. and he asumed that they were my brothers games. while the need for speed was borowed from my brother the others were mine! i love to rip my enemies in half over my head in god of war. girls dont just play rock band, singstar, flower, and dance dance revolution. girls are awesome gamers to!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_the_military


Enjoy, some of it is actually a good read, there is a really nice write up on Roza Shanina, a Russian sniper in WW2. She killed about 50 Germans on her own.


Some countries (Like the US) try to restrict women in military however because they feel women coming home dead is more depressing than men coming home dead, to which I say BS. A life is a life, and a life lost is tragic, no matter what the gender.

Hahahaha that's awesome. And yeah, I use to know a girl on my Scrim team for Call of Duty 4, we won many competitions, and she was 2nd best on a team of 8. The rest were all guys.
Sadly I was 4th

I believe men and women should be treated with equal respect but I do not treat men and women equally for example if a woman came and attacked me I wouldn't hit her I would just restrain whereas I would hit a man that had done the same thing. As for strength genrally men are stronger that is because even if men and woman do the same amount woman build less muscle because they lack the amount of testosterone that men have, which is one of the biggest factors in building muscle. Men and women also have differences mentally; in the science museum in london they have a computer that asks you questions and tells you your gender based on your answers( ironically it told me I was a female). they have a percentage of how much it gets right, I can't remember the exact figure but it was between 75% and 85% accurate.


Yeah, I don't believe those things, they almost always tell me I'm a female -pout-


haha yeah but you and I make up the part of the percentage it gets wrong.

I don't see how you did that, since I was only speaking in generalities and nothing I said had anything to with adoption or baby formula.
