As strange as this may sound at first,it makes a lot of sense,it actually makes perfect sense,if you believe we have souls and i believe we do have
souls and they are immortal...
Only our bodies are male and female,our souls are neither,they are something more.They are the invisible forces of life that live forever and they
animate temporary bodies again and again...
Of course i understand that it takes a man and a woman to make a baby,but its a woman who carries the fertilized egg that becomes an embryo,its her
body that nurtures the developing fetus within, which slowly grows into a baby that only she can give birth to and it is a living miracle,a child who
i believe,has an eternal soul...
I believe in reincarnation and i have many conscious memories and many dream scenes of past lives that i know i have lived before and i believe that
we have all lived before and we all will live again...
When we die,our souls are released from their material shrouds and they ascend into astral realms to await another embryo to inhabit,to be reborn,to
live again and i believe that at some point along the way during a womans pregnancy,her fetus,her unborn baby attains a soul,the soul of someone that
has recently died...
And so i believe that through women and only through women are souls able to enter into and experience this material reality and so women are soul

Interesting argument, it rests on a lot of uncertainties though. And you can't really convert an egg cell into a sperm cell. Well you can, but what is
produced is so nonviable that it requires additional genetic manipulation that may be beyond our current reach, in order to enable it to fertilize an
egg cell. And what would be produced, I would be hard pressed to call human(the creature would be a genetic mess).
While a sperm cell can be converted into an egg cell that is 110% healthy and viable(as good as the real thing).
Then again it is a matter of "does the soul enter/created at conception, or when the neurological pathway's/brain develops". I guess we will know
soon, as the same people who have been financing feminism are also financing artificial gestation(and financed the above medical methods).
Like I said interesting, I suppose I was half expecting to see another new age feminine divine bs thread(I believe firmly that men/women=human beings,
and to raise one without raising the whole hurts us all).
But this heavily depends when "the soul begins", in a fetus. Conception or xx weeks when the brain first develops.
