It Depends on How U See it

Gender Inequality is always a big issue to discuss. it has been exsiting for centuries, despite its large narrowing down. what's funny is that regarding gender inequality, WHY do people always consider women as inferioriy and are discriminated? Inequality, in a way, means having different rights.

Does the fact that women CANNOT play football with men in a League show women's being discriminated? Why not put it in other ways: men, as players, are there playing games; women, as audience, are there watching; men are playing for the fun and happiness of women, ect.? Royal family never play football for us people, do they?

    I suppose the difference is that they Royal Family could play football, if they wanted to and were any good at it. They play polo, after all, which is a spectator sport on a smaller scale.

    Similarly, the men in the crowd could play league football, but the women are denied that opportunity.

    The truth is that nature is sexist. I, for example, am not allowed to give birth, simply because of my sex. On the basis of the fact that I inherited a Y chromosome (something which I had no control over), I'm denied perhaps the most joyful, and painful experience possible. I reckon that's pretty unfair.
    Where possible, if a woman or a man is able to do something, and wants to do it, there should be nothing to stop her or him. But we shouldn't be surprised if the outcome of that is that there are more men in the fire service than women, or more female nurses than male. Or that people prefer to watch men playing football than women playing. In the say way, I think women's tennis is more interesting than men's. It's just because, if you take averages, women and men are unequal in their abilities.

  3. Nature is sexist! Look at penguins! They share their duties and responsiblities; the bees? even more superior than that! Quoting Scrubs: "Is it sexist to hold the door for a woman?". Yes it is! Changing our attitude doesn't mean changing the nature. All the sexual discrimination campaigns are just there to make people feel more equal when actually they are not. And at the end of day it all comes down to politics and political correctness or simply, 'faking it'.

  4. Oh god!

    When it comes to sport, true equality would have men and women playing together to see which PERSON is best. Unfortunately this would usually mean women lose, so we have to have 'special', easier competitions which only women can enter so that it seems 'fair' – but now women (who often didn't invent the game, administer it, develop the rules, manage it etc etc want to demand equal prize money for what is, in effect, a lower value competition!

    If we really got rid of discrimination women would suffer terribly – for example baldness and heart disease in women is already higher in women who work in offices.
