Why do men are always dominant while women are always submissive? Are they both equal? I have noticed that men are "superior" when it comes to gender? If they are "superior", do really God made them "dominant" in our human society because he is a male?

Men are not always dominant and woman are not always submissive. I know many men that are submissive and many woman that are dominant. And I don't know either one that is "superior". We are all people...the only difference to me is the body parts. And that is for reproduction not superiority. Both men and women have their strengths and weaknesses. And on what authority do you have it that your "God" is male?

I don't really believe in a God.... I do believe in an Oversoul and gender only plays a role in our time here on earth. In the spiritual world I believe there is really no gender assigned to us, other than what we choose.

Hi IntrovertShy. I guess it had something to do with thousands of years ago where male is the dominant and the absolute when it comes to gender..its imprinted in our genes, and of course its gonna took a longggggggg time to overwrite.. Good thing now-days things start to change..and we no longer haunted by our caveman nature~at least not totally :) I'm not sure if God is a 'He'...otherwise female will forever be submissive compare to men..

its true that man are superior than women its general observation, but definitely there are always some exceptional cases in which women is dominating or man is submissive but it is fact and also my believe that man is superior.

Hi, When I hear about the concept that God has made males dominant it all sounds 100% jibe to me. First of all, there is no evidence to prove that. Only the scriptures which may as well be opinion of a male himself can say something like that. Whether they are equal depends solely on whether they think they are. Being submissive doesn't always mean something bad or being underdog. Submissive people too can have a firm sense of self respect and mental independence. Whether we are superior entirely depends on the choices we make in a certain situation. Irrespective of gender, claiming that we are superior and keep shouting about it doesn't make us superior. Take care God bless you

As I have read from the Bible men is important compare to women & also in the old times men tend to be working while women stay in homes taking care of children but sorry it only exist in the olden times nowadays female are dominant then men because or our determination to succeed & willingness to learn new things in a new world. Especially here in our conrty men are the one staying at home making a home while women are the breadwinner. Its a pity that men are not broght up to be independent.
