I hate to break it to you, but if you honestly believe that … well … it makes you delusional.
Women can do/be anything men can? That’s crazy. If that’s the case, why is every single sport divided into men’s and ladies’ competitions?
If that’s the case, why do fire and police academies have to lower the standards for women?
If that’s the case, why are there so few female CEOs?
Women are simply not as competent as men in many, many fields.
That’s why women are slower in sports competitions. That’s why fire and police academies have to lower the standards to meet their female hiring quotas. That’s why there’s so few female CEO’s. It’s not because of some invisible “patriarchy” that meets in dark rooms and conspires to keep women from becoming successful. That’s just a lame excuse and it goes against Occam’s Razor (the solution with the least assumptions is probably the correct one). The truth is that women just simply don’t measure up in many (not all) fields.
If you honestly, in your heart of hearts believe that women can do or be anything that men can, I suggest you take an honest look around the world. Not with rose-colored feminist glasses on, not with cognitive dissonance bouncing around in your head, but with clear 20/20 vision.
It’s not that women shouldn’t be anything a man can be, it’s that women are simply incapable of doing the things men do or being the things men are.
I know that’s a bitter pill to swallow, but at least it’s the truth.
