Women are better than men.

Hello everyone! Many say that women are equal to men. Some says that men are superior to women. However, some feels that a woman is greater than a man. A great scholar has said – “I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men. They are superior and always have been. Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she will give you a baby. If you give her a house, she will give you a home. If you give her groceries, she will give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she will give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.” -William Golding I loved what William Golding has stated and it stands almost true. What are your take on it? Image courtesy - Google

I always believe man and women can never be compared, both are unique in different ways

I have seen that shared at Facebook and I must say it is true. Though, great philosophers , inventors and scientists are mostly men. So for me, men and women are equally good. To each his own when it comes to what they can do better.

I found the words very logical, therefore, I thought that it could be discussed on mylot. There may be different opinions on the quoted words, no doubt about it. Yes, both are equally good but I still feel that women score on some of the issues, more than men.

No women are not better, they are only different, this is why a family is composed by a couple, because they complement each other.

@dpk262006 You know what is true for some women, does not mean that can be applied to all women. Some are really bad, they kill their children, cheat their husbands and ruin the families. You can never "generalize".

You know my take on it will be a complex one. I would have to say it definitely depends on the person rather than what gender they are. Some men are greater, some women are even greater . . . and visa versa.

Yes, you could have a different opinion on this statement. May be it differs from individual to individual, rather than generalizing it for a particular gender. I feel you could safely count yourself in the category of greater women, who takes care of her family with all her sincerity.

@much2say You deserve compliments. I agree that basically you are sincere person, irrespective of your gender. You do not want to be termed as sincere because you are a woman. Had you been a male, in that case also you would not have faulted in discharging your duties.

men and women have different attributes and excel in different areas of life, and rely on each other to maintain civilization and biological reproduction. It's an apples to oranges comparison to talk about which is "better".

I believe in respect for each other and appreciation for each other's roles. I would not wish to be a man, I prefer to be what I am -- a very feminine woman.

It's like the saying "God is Good-all-the-time." Sure he is ... if you're only looking for goodness! If you're looking for badness, you'll see he's plenty o` that too! Mr. Golding's action/reaction picture is far too simple to work in real life ... I've 'smiled at' legions of women and have far-less than 'legions' of hearts! And nothing about 'her womanhood' makes groceries any-more "a meal" than they were when I bought them at the store! (of course, he probably wrote that back when every woman's career-path was "baby, student, secretary, housewife, spinster.")

What I understand is - Golding's observations do not hold true in today's world and you don't agree with his statements. You have a point, his statement may not be fully true in the changing environment and the way women are progressing now a days.
