People talk about gender equality quite often and when they do I listen but not talk. The reason I don't talk is because I don't believe in it. I don't believe that two separate things can be equal. I feel like trying to make the two genders function the same way is wrong because both sides have good and bad sides to them. I feel like in some cultures women are beginning to act like men more and men more like women. Women want to do the same things as men do. Well, I'm not saying that they shouldn't, I just don't believe in trying to get the good things from both worlds. Doing what men do and then talking about affirmative action (positive discrimination) seems ironic to me. One person I knew once told me (not a native English speaker, so it sounds a bit harsh): "if you act like a man, you get like a man". I believe in it. I believe that there are two sides with good and bad sides and people have to make a choice. Women can't do everything men can do and men can definitely do everything women can do. So instead of talking about equality and trying to find equality I think that the differences should be emphasized, not to argue or fight, but to form a better team.
Since there are only girls in our class, I am curious to read your comments.
