i keep hearing that men and women are equal but different. but in real life, i’m just not seeing it.
what are the real differences?
i know, i will probably get answers like “men are generally more intellectual and women more emotional” or “men are better protectors and women are more nurturing”. but for each generalization, there are exceptions. i know intellectual men and women, i know not so intellectual people of both sexes. i know emotion guys and less emotional girls. outgoing guys and girls, shy girls and guys.
we instinctively know which sex we are but i think we’ve gone wrong by stereotyping it by personality traits and activities. this makes the people who don’t necessarily fit in to the molds outcasts.
tomboys are always told that they’re not feminine enough and the more sensitive guys are frowned upon.
does anyone understand what i mean? and any thoughts?
