Anyway, women are smart as heck, but so many years of conditioning has made us appear to be weak and stupid. This topic is great because it does need
to be discussed. I can handel that maybe women are not that smart.
But I do know that women get a deeper understanding about life. Men have to do things like Fasting or be at the brink of life and death in order to
experience the beautiful and spiritual side of life.
Teeky I understand your point of view,
but you just sounded like a hypocrite, you complained about men generalising their view on women, then you
go ahead and say men are all bad at having a deep understanding and women are better. Which I totally disagee with anyway.
Not trying to be annoying
, I would just like to point out that BOTH sexes generalise the other sex.
Have you realised that men also experience this "kind of like racism" thing your trying to say, over the years men in media(movies, tv shows,
commercials) have been potrayed as REALLY dumb, REALLY stupid, over manly, weak minded, sitting on the couch too much, overweight, lazy etc. While the
women are beautiful, healthy, clever, powerful, in control etc. A lot of women in media are far superiour and above all men. There is also the
opposite I'm sure, but you see my point.
This also helps makes women assume all men are dumb, non emotional, lazy beings, when in fact most are not.
Oh yeah one more thing, lately, some women are obbsessed about this equality thing, that they become too much like an exaggerated manly man. They
forget that being feminime can be one of their superiour traits haha. Instead they become, power obsessed, arrogant, like a man on steroids, etc also
because they are women they can get away with SO much more. Women and men alike don't like these types much haha.
I'm sure many of you have come accross this new generation of power obsessed, annoying, manly women.
Equality is great, but acting too manly does not make you equal, we naturally have differences and that's the point of male and female.
Don't get me wrong, I actually love strong, powerful, intelligent BUT feminine
, being a bit of a tom boy doesn't put me off either. But what
I'm talking about with manly women is "over the limit, more manly, aggressive than even most men," if you get me.
