The foundation of #Gender #Equality is the premise that gender does not determine capability for a given task.  Women may have to do it differently, but they are still capable of completing any task a man can.

A foundation point of #Chivalry is that women are less capable beings that require the protection of men.  

Do you disagree with my #perspective thus far???  If you do, why???

If you agree thus far,  do you see how Chivalry might undermine the image of a woman as a full equal to a man???

Today we have a society that has women as Police Officers, Marines, and Jet Fighter Pilots. These are the roles of protector and warrior.  Is it appropriate for women to be in these roles???

How is a male police officer/soldier to believe a female police officer/soldier can be counted on to watch his back???

A woman is either an equally capable human being or she is not!!!  Which is it to be???

My point is that women reading this need to fully understand the dynamic of Equality and take responsibility for how their decisions effect how all women are perceived.  Do you think this unfair???  Whose responsibility do you think it is to create an environment where women are respected as full equals???

We can change laws to help women, but the truth is that true respect as an Equal can only come from Women Stepping Up & Demonstrating their Ability to Communicate as Equals 24/7/365.

When women complain about the lack of Chivalry, they are basically asking to return to the mindset of inequality.

So women have a choice.  They can make decisions that continue to demonstrate an association between women w/ being "weak & afraid" or women can make decisions that grow the association between women w/ being "strong & brave."  Which do you think will better lead to the mindset of women as true equals???

Then again, perhaps women prefer this halfway treatment. Its only resulted in the opinions of women to not be taken as seriously as men's and as a consequence of that, getting paid less for non-union represented work.

I Love Women and it hurts me to see them not live up to the Equality I was raised to believe in.

In other societies across the world women are still treated as property and have very little rights, if any.  Don't sleep, our society can still tumble backwards.  Even now there are those plotting to take away a woman's right to choose what happens with her own body.  What are you doing to help secure women's rights over their own lives???  Your daily decisions matter.

Are women being "lazy" when they wait for more old fashioned men to court them??? 

"I start to disrespect the man for his lack of initiative in what HE really needs and wants."

Welcome to the world men live in, where women think its a bright idea not to let us know where their head is at & we have to decode their subtext.  I also lose respect for women who refuse to communicate Directly, Honestly, & Compassionately with me.  

Compatibility has, for me, three major components.

1.  Mind - Is your communication Direct & Honest??? Do you share goals & interest???

2. Body - Do you find each other attractive??? Do you share the same standards for maintaining your health???

3. Soul - Is your communication Kind??? Do you show each other Empathy??? Do you share a moral compass???

These are the things you watch out for as you’re dating.  You’re looking for those "Foundation Points" - things you can build on.  Too often the only foundation point people have is mutual lust.  That usually ends badly.  You have to see if you can establish a real friendship and see if you have the skills to argue and come out of the conflict a stronger couple.  Don't ignore what bothers you. Confront it early in the relationship so that you know whether its something you guys can deal with for the long term, if there is to be a long term. 

Why do you believe so many marriages end up in divorce???  One answer to this question is that the two people had bad communication from the start in addition to not really understanding what the institution of marriage is about. 

The truth of the matter is that women have always been leaders, but back in the day women were better at it because they didn't take their power for granted.  Today women can vote and pursue so many different careers that they forget that the struggle for Equality is still going on.  I believe one of the biggest things holding women back from being viewed as True Equals is the idea that "that's a man's job" is still a statement that is being used by women.  I know women that are police officers, soldiers, doctors, lawyers, and many other careers that were once only for men.  Society tried to use the Biology argument to stop women from being police officers, soldiers & other such dangerous jobs, but lost the argument.  If women can be considered strong enough to be warriors and protectors, then trying to use the Biology argument as an excuse not to initiate a relationship with men is ignorant.     

Do you believe in EQUALITY??? What does that mean to you???  What are you willing to sacrifice to attain Respect as an Equal???
What does being treated "like a woman" mean to you??? Do you agree that Women = "weak & afraid" and Men = "brave & strong" ???
