I continuously hear ‘men and women are different’, ‘it’s a man’s perspective’, ‘it’s a woman’s perspective’. I disagree men and women are the same. There’s no difference between a man and a woman apart from biological differences. The books such as Men from Mars and Women are from Venus are great tools to create distances between genders.
This book aims to explain that different hormones in male and female creates arguments between different sex. Gender is designed with its own emotional balances and cultural values that sets them apart. That’s simply not true. Men and women are the same and here is why:
Both male and female want love and be loved. It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman; to want love is a simplest form of a human condition. It’s stupid to differentiate men and women when they both want the same.
Love doesn’t have gender.
If you look at the production of the hormones it’s actually the same for male and female. You can look it up in a science journal.
It’s so popular for women to have PMS and be horrible to anyone around her as a result. Men have hormonal things going on in their bodies too but no one talks about it. It’s stupid to think women behave in an emotional manner because of their hormones. It’s an excuse for men to accuse women of their emotions and women to cover it up their bad behaviour.
Both men and female want to have a nice house, family and whatever that may come with it cars, dogs, cats you name it. Why then differentiate it? It’s universal for all. It is gender equal to want to have a family. There is no difference between a man wanting to have a family and a woman wanting to have a family. It’s universal. Men love having kids as much as women.
Food. Both men and women want good food to fuel their bodies. Both genders want to be healthy and live long lives. Food matters to both genders why differentiate it? If both genders want to eat good food are we going to create women and men food? Oh wait, it already exist. Food has become gendered too now! Salads are for women and burgers are for men. Isn’t it ridiculous?!
Men and women are career driven. Not all! Some women have babies and climbing a career ladder and men stay at home to look after the baby. Some women have babies and stay at home while men earn the cash. However, both genders want to be successful in achieving great results in whatever they choose to do.
I’ve worked with some great women VPs and some great men VPs. Let me tell you, there’s no difference between them. Women are as bad as men and men are as bad as women.
It’s a myth that men and women are different.
It’s convenient to think men and women are different when one gender wants objectify the other and its supported by silly books that differentiate genders.
The other distorted view is feminism by both men and women. It’s now popular for women to wear nothing and “feel” sexy while men run their eyes up and down their bodies. Both genders are as bad as each other. In Natasha Walter’s book called Living Dolls:
“The equitation of empowerment and liberation with sexual objectification is now seen everywhere, and is having a real effect on the ambitions of young women. When we talked about empowerment in the past, it was not a young woman in a thong gyrating around a pole that would spring to mind, but the attempts by women to gain real political and economic equality.”
I whole heartedly agree with Natasha Walter that women fought for economic and political equality back then and now it has become a norm for women turn to prostitution, wear nothing and men take advantage of that. It’s sad but both men and women are guilty in creating a barrier between the sexes.
It’s a return of sexism.
The difference between a male and a female is biological and nothing else. Why create barriers that don’t exist? Why create emotional barriers that don’t exist? Why create sexism? It’s complete and utter nonsense to believe that men and women are different. When it to comes to universal things such as love, family, food and home both sexes want the same things.
I wish for a better tomorrow for all young girls and boys. I wish everyone looked less into differences and more into similarities. I wish the history of suffragettes wouldn’t go down the drain by silly gender differences of today. Universal truths are the same for all and it has no gender.
