If men and women are no different then why bother having sex with each other in all the myriad definitions of “sex”?
If men and women are no different, that degrades all the wonderful things that men do including make a world for women that compensates for the limitations of women’s (and men’s!) biology.
I do not believe that women want a world of wimpy, hurt, whiners, who are afraid of breaking a nail, and gigantic mean women picking up their slack, but it would appear that is where we are going until women learn to appreciate what makes a man different from a woman.
If women ever learn to fully transcend the limitations of our biology it will be due overwhelmingly to the inventions of men. Should that occur and women do not rise to the challenge of maintaining infrastructure, protecting men, etc. in favor of simply preserving their youth and beauty, they are in for a rude backlash. I’m sorry if that makes me not an “equalist”.
I recognize that there are individuals who choose to be transgendered or gender-fluid and I don’t believe that it degrades them to celebrate their “rebellious” stance; however, in terms of “revolutions” I believe that scientifically, biologically, and psychologically this one will fail. I believe that men are kinder than women to other women. I have seen disparate men work together to accomplish meaningful, tangible things while disparate women simply cat fight or come up with nonsense platitudes that homogenize differences for the “sake of peace”. Whereas, “diplomacy” is a masculine art. This may be because War is also a masculine art albeit I contend that the subconscious or conscious motivation for all wars is feminine materialism. Whereas, for men, the subconscious or conscious motivation is sex, which I find to be a nobler objective.
This does not say that there are not many fine female leaders of all sorts only that such women should be recognized as being distinct from the majority and should be required to petition for exceptions to their biology. Such women have always existed throughout history and did not require any special “rights” granted to them by the state in order to fulfill their destinies.
Since I believe in a small state, whereas both feminism and “equalism” require a large state, I am willing to sacrifice “equality” for “freedom”.
