    Exclamation Do You Believe in Equality Between Men and Women?

    I am not sure where to put this Thread so if it needs moved please do so.

    Today I have heard some statements about what Women should & should not be able to do. Although, the source isn't very source reliant I wonder if any males here would agree that Women are not equal to Men? Should we Vote? Should we be in Politics? Why and Why Not?

    Do you respect Women or do you just think they should be home cleaning,cooking,etc?

    Do you value the Women on the Althing?
    & for the lovely ladies...have you ever experienced things of this nature?

    Please no horrible statements which will cause infractions or closing of the Thread...

    I think this would be the approptiate section for gender role issues.

    Women?

    I'll be bloody honest here and don't get me wrong, but I always got along better with men. It either seems to be that women are af(in/)fected by the superficiality of our age more, or it has to do with my own personality and the fact that I had little to none family support growing up, which made me cynical and independent.
    Being a general trend that women are more dependent than men in various social settings, I just can't relate to most women that expect everything to be handed to them because they're pretty or simply...female.

    I made some attempts to make some female friends lately, which soon went down the drain, as from our first encounters they started talking about their sexual adventures and/or the lack of them thereof -and only that.
    Is he good for me? Will he call me? What do you think he meant by that? Etc, etc.....

    The very few women I have encountered in my life who actually have interests and an entity of their own (some of them in this forum), I hold high respect & admiration for.

    Are they equal to men? No. And they shouldn't be.
    That doesn't mean they're better or worse.
    It merely means they're different, their sociobiology is different and their gender roles are different. Nothing to be ashamed about, they both offer their valuable contributions and their fates are interwoven.

    As for the voting/politics issue:
    I think it's the majority of people that should be excluded from voting & politics, not just women.

    Does one necessarily eliminate the other? Maybe we're just not respecting cleaning, cooking &c these days.

    I have not made my mind up about this. I do think today's society focuses too much on money and carreers; women postpone building a family, parents spend too much time working rather than being with their children, and so on. It would probably be a good thing if the mother would stay away from work until the child goes to school, and if all the children's mothers were with the children at the day nursery, so that the child wouldn't be left without its mother, and the mother wouldn't be alone with its child all days for years.

    Or maybe it's a good thing for a child to be completely away from its mother during the days? I don't know. It seems like a long time without parents though, who then come home all tired from work, watch some tv, go to bed.

    I agree mostly,it probably is better for mothers to stay home,money wise some just can't. Some are single moms who have no choice but to work everyday. It would be hard for me to leave my daughter everyday,she is almost 4 but I am lucky & have a reliable husband to take care of us.

    Very true. I wish people would dedicate themselves to their children & family always.

    I wouldn't want to have children if I couldn't stay with them, at least during the first couple of years.
    And staying at home to raise the kids does not make one an uneducated housewife.
    In some countries you can still study, work part-time, do your own thing and take care of the kids at the same time. Provided that your husband's income is adequate, of course.

    So, I mean to say that it is capitalism and today's society that forces most women out of the home and makes them postpone or abort the family issue altogether -because in most cases, a couple can't afford to bring up their children or even to support themselves with the husband's salary alone.
    I know it's not that bad in Scandinavia (yet) but in Greece and other countries, it is. Salaries are not enough for peanuts and state benefits are non-existent.
    Hell, you can even get fired from work for getting pregnant. Some companies even force you to sign that you won't. This is one of the most ruthless faces of capitalism.

    I always got along with men better as well,even trusting them more,usually,although I have had a few girl friends that were loyal & made the best girlfriends. They are far & few tho

    Yea, very annoying behavior for more mature ladies. I think there can definitely be to much "girly"

    It lies in the Eye of the Beholder of if the Women should stay at Home and do Homework or if she should go into Business.

    I'm not against any of those. It's their Decision. I could never be happy with a women which only stays at home and cares for the Home and the Children and cook for me. I could also never be happy with a Women who's always gone and busy.
    A Woman in the Middle is perfect. Because a Woman shouldn't be totally dependent on her Husband nor totally focuses on herself and her carrier.

    Are men and women equal? No. In fact, no two people are equal, much less two races or genders. Nature does not follow egalitarianism.

    Should women vote? I don't think anyone should vote. Democracy is mob rule. Voting will change nothing. Should women be involved in politics? I don't see why not, women can be effective leaders. Maybe we need a woman's touch to get meaningful change...

    I agree on voting as mob rule. I don't mind women voting. Men are better voters, IMHO more likely to arrive at a rational viewpoint.

    I don't see why I should hold a viewpoint on women working / staying at home. There are too many individual circumstances.

    I don't think we are equal because we are essentially too different. Any attempt to minimize these differences, as has been done by feminism and liberalism is a huge insult to both men and women, and is essentially telling you that you are the same as the opposite gender, just with different sexual organs. It is typical for liberalism to subvert such a thing to its lowest and most perverse possible level, namely physical differences, and quite frankly I find is disgusting. Which rights they should and should not have would be very clear if our societies weren't as degenerate as they are today.
