well , , earlier in class , , we have been discussing that men and women should be equal , , as we all know , , women are known as "child bearers" and they do not have the right to work outside the house , , all they do is household chores, teach and nurse children , , but now, , we can see women working in a big company, driving fancy cars, even lead their own countries (i am from the philippines and our president is a lady) this thing also came up , , men and women are equal , , both gender are equal in strength, , both are talented, , unique , , EQUAL , , then how come that sometimes , , we often hear from ladies "be a gentleman" do you get my point? , , hello? , , we want equality but yet when it comes to opening doors, carrying heavy load and such , , we want the guys to do it for us? if we want equality , , we should also be doing heavy jobs like what men do , , accept it , , there are still things that man can do and woman can't , , this is the time to pour out your thoughts , , :-) this is a nice discussion , , what do you think? , , agree or disagree? , , ü

what is with this topic. I think men are women have their own job to do. there are something that men cant do while women can. tHERE re things that woman cant do that man can. So they have their own job. they are equal. Men dominate everywhere? yea, with women as their backup and give wonderful idea to them. I am a man, but I dont favor this discussion

Men and women are equal, which is not to say there are the same or that they have the same capacities.

Exactly. Equal doesn't mean 'same'. And I guess the reason we all live with each other is because of these differences.

Times have changed so much over the years. What was the norm in the 1800's would not work in todays society. Many women have to work just to make ends meet. I also think men have a hard time being "gentlemen" when the women do not act like "ladies". I for one, like it when my husband opens doors for me, and I loved staying home caring for our children. He has always worked hard, I only worked when times were really hard and I had no choice. There are many types of people in this world. I know of women that work with heavy equipment and they are great at it. It would not be for me. I guess I like being a lady and my husband a gentleman.

Tis true, many a family, including mine would be living on the street if it weren't for our women working. God bless us all, I say. :)

It is mostly in the teens and in the early twenties that the issue of "who is superior " arises. Slowly we start finding answers ourselves and the men start becoming gentlemen.

That seems to be what I have found, too. I am 35 and have had less issues with this subject in my life.

I don't think so. Because these days girls are also into all the fields. even they can do any thing. IN fact womens are great, they will give birth to human beings. but men not.

I think this is a good topic. I agree that men and women are equal. However, I think you are a little confused on the equal part. There are things that men can do better than women. There are things that women can do better than men. There are things men cant do at all and there are things that women cant do at all. But that does not make us any less equal to men. In fact, I think God designed us that way on purpose. So that we would balance together on the scales of life and be a team. So you can say that men and women are different. But you can not say that we are not equal. We are all people. We all put our pants on one leg at a time. We all tie our shoes one at a time, we all get angry,sad,depressed,happy,overjoyed..etc.. we all bleed, we all think, we all feel. We have differences between us yet we are the same. And that my friend, makes us equal...

I think that yes, we are equals and we all deserve to be treated that way, both men and women. I am a single mother of 2, and I don't rely or ask a man to help me with anything that I can manage on my own. I moved myself, I painted my house myself, any minor repairs, I do it myself. There is, and will always be the fact that SOME men are stronger physically than SOME women, and if there is something that needs lifting that I cannot possibly do, I ask a stronger man OR woman to help me out, but never to do it for me. And as for the "be a gentleman" bit, oh please. I see myself holding more doors for men than you would ever see a man holding for women. And I quote your words, "there are still things that man can do and woman can't", well my dear, have you looked at the other side? Have you sat and thought of the things that a woman can do that a man CAN'T?? Let's just bring up the most obvious, but also the most important one, WE GIVE LIFE! It is our bodies that carry the child for 9 months, OUR bodies that endure the pain of labor, and I know that I'm not alone in saying that I'd love to see a man endure JUST the pain of labor! HA. And for your final question, I totally disagree that it is a "nice" discussion, it is a great topic, but put in a very piggish, sexist way. SO ACCEPT IT, women can give life, we can rule countries, we can do jobs that men can do, we can be equals.

Well, men are better than woman. Our emotions are much more secure, we are more strong, some are smarter...and the list goes on....

I AGREE WITH YOU MEN AND WOMAN SHOULD BE EQUAL WHEN GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN AND EARTH HE MADE MAN FIRST THEN HE TOOK A RIB FROM ADAM AND MADE WOMAN THE RIB GOD USE WAS UNDER ADAM ARM SO THAT WOMAN WOULD NOT HAVE TO WALK BEHIND A MAN OR IN FRONT OF A MAN BUT TO WALK BESIDE A MAN AND TO BE HIS EQUAL

yeah , , nice point there , , :-) men should always realize that women are not just there to do household chores, , sad but most men do not realize that , , just because we are taken from man's rib doesn't mean they rule over us or they are the ones who are always right , ,
