Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of heat in the comments on certain blog posts about how I am “sexist” in my “generalizations.”
Have you read my articles?
I would think my constant push for fairness, mutual respect, and equality, is the furthest thing from sexist.
But, this does raise an interesting point. Why is it, that people associate the term equality with being the same?
Not only are men and women different, but it’s been scientifically proven that our brains are different.
Does this make either gender better or worse? Smarter or dumber? More or less apt to succeed? NO! But, it does make us different.
Trying to tell me that a white suburban American male thinks the same way as a female from Nairobi is ridiculous. But why is it wrong to say that out loud? Are we all so petrified of offending someone that we must group every single person into one area?
We should embrace our differences and be honest about them, otherwise we will create future generations of drones with no individuality.
We are equal in how we should be treated. Every race and gender is equal in this sense, but we are all different – and, that is a beautiful thing.
Each of us have unique nuances that make us who we are, that all go away if we try to shove a square peg in a round hole. No matter how much you try to make a woman the same as a man, she is not, and vice versa. Sorry if this sounds sexist to some of you, but I think it’s an amazing thing.
This means we can learn from each other, collaborate with each other, and truly appreciate each other for being an individual unlike anyone else who has ever lived.
So, treat each other with the respect and kindness that you would your equal – because that’s exactly what they are.
But, don’t be mistaken, they are not the same as you, and that is what makes the world beautiful.
