Women – Men’s Equal?

Women – Men’s Equal?

83-jpgTo correctly begin this discussion, it would be proper to rely on some fundamental facts that are given in the Good Book. Opinions can differ from individual to individual, whether male or female. In the final analysis, you’ll be both the judge and jury of the whole issue. It must also be stressed right from the onset that I am not a sexist and I am open to all differing views.

God first created Adam, and seeing how lonely he was without a soul mate, caused him “to fall into a deep sleep, and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed it with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken from out of the man, and he brought her to the man.” (Genesis 2: 21 –22).


Adam called her “woman” meaning “bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.” (Genesis 2:23). Woman was thus designed to be a helpmate, a companion and a comforter unto Adam. As implied, Adam would be the provider, the leader and head of the family unit. “Adam named his woman Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.” (Genesis 3:20).

The role of the woman has been clearly set since the dawn of time. There’s no gainsaying when it comes to this basic truth. In this DNA age however, with women’s liberation, changing economic circumstances, education, the value tag has been switched and all norms of practice have come into play. But things can go too extreme when genders are done away and eradicated. In the movies, there are no more “actresses”, only “actors”. You are labeled a sexist if you refer to any terminology with reference to gender. In time we won’t be able to distinguish one from the other.

It is not saying that women are not capable of attaining great feats. In the academic field, we have some great scholars. In politics, we have some very capable senators and ministers. Ladies have shone in the sporting field and woman writers are just as prominent. In truth, given the opportunities, women can aspire like the men.


Nonetheless, there will always be demarcation between sexes. For one, no woman can be Arnold Schwarzenegger, though women have ventured into the field of bodybuilding. But what a shame to do away with their gentle, soft tender flesh with hardness and bulk. The alluring and “come hither” look will be lost forever.

A rose by any name would still smell the same
Going against nature is not the game!

    The passage of time changes things. But certain basic & fundamental things need not change . . . keep the good & discard the bad.

    Women and men are equal. They have different but complementary role at home and in the society. Hence, they live as man and wife to enjoy this life and to continue the human race.

  3. Those woman are grotesque. Was a woman ever meant to look like a steroid freak? I’ve seen women who lift weights and still look feminine. Screwing around with your body chemistry has very serious consequences. Even male bodybuilders these days have gone far beyond their body’s natural potential for strength and mass. if you want to see perfect male and female physiques, look no further than Charles Atlas, Steve Reeves, Cory Everson and Kim Dolane Leto.
