So this my first time creating a new forum topic, sorry if there's already a topic like this and sorry if this isn't even mildly interesting.

Mostly people around my age mimic this whole "men are equal to women" thing and although that's true intellectually, it's not true biologically or psychologically, for example a women can seem more emotional because of oestrogen which would in turn affect how you think, the body shapes are different and unfortunately women are usually physically weaker than men.

Anyway, it's not rocket science to see that men and women are in fact different, it's especially obvious if you get into a relationship with the other gender. Anyway, what are your thoughts? Do you think I'm wrong? Why?

Please be nice, this is my first time attempting to do this

From a biological perspective, yes, men and women are quite diffrent. From a social perspective... unfortunately, men and women are not equal.

Ok where to even start. First off, Men and women are in fact not equal in anyway.
Example: Men are expected to be the breadwinner of the household while the women are to be housewives.
There are women who want to be respected and be equal with men, but they sometimes go against it by using their bodies to achieve something. Like in twitch there are people who flaunt their bodies to get more viewers while guys who naturally play good get viewers because of the ideology that media has instilled in everyone that sex sells but it is quite true.
Now biologically women have to bear the pain of giving birth while the guy just has to pump to get a child. Men are also expected to have a fit body and women to have an hour glass body, again sex sells.
Psychologically men and women are actually equal on this because it doesn't matter whether you're man or woman if you are raised to be weak minded you will turn out that way unless you think otherwise.

tl;dr Fuck the media and fuck bad parenting

To me equality just means that every person is judged individually based on their individual strengths and weaknesses instead of applying the strengths and weaknesses of a group to the individual.

Why strive for equality? Why is it important? Is that what you want to know? Because no matter how different one human being is from another be it gender, race, nationality, social status or economic status they are still a fellow human being and deserve to be treated the same as any other. If you wake up one day and everyone with your hair color, for instance, was told that they would be paid 40% less than other hair colors due to the unpleasant look of it, you'd be pissed. You want to be compensated for the effort you put out, not your genetics. Life really isn't fair, we all know this... That's why it is important to get everyone to at least the level of not being treated unfairly before they are even given a chance.

Equality isn't about every single person being the same, it's about every single person being given the same chances to try to pursue their goals.

Cultural expectations and gender role acceptance have such diverse definitions geopolitically that it is hard to interpret what is equality or inequality within such a broad context.

Saying "men are biologically stronger than women" is erasure of trans people. Let's not do that.
