Battle Of The Sexes Essay, Research Paper
The most controversial topic in history has been, Who is more superior man, or woman? Be it from the men ruling or to the dominating woman of the nineties, the only right answer is a yes to both sides. Men have there strong points and women have there strong points too, but they are in different areas. Men tend to belong in the workforce as heavy laborers and women behind the desks, women can have children and men cannot, and men?s sports tend to be more popular then women?s.
Most men are Physically built stronger than women. They have the ability to do more physically demanding jobs such as construction, movers, bouncers at bars, and many of the other jobs that involve strength and power. Women aren’t all unable to do these jobs so they are forced to work as secretaries, clerks, and many of the mentally demanding office jobs. There are exceptions though such as the big 250 pound butch women and the skinny frail men who switch roles and that is perfectly fine. This becomes a problem when the massive dumb man wants to be a successful secretary with his amazing eight words per minute typing speed and the skinny little twig woman wants to be a lumberjack. Men and women have to realize that some jobs are meant for someone more fitting then what they are.
When god created women, he gave them the ability to have children. This advantage kind of gives women superiority over men. I’m sure if men were able to they would have children, but they can’t. Back in the eighteen hundreds it was expected that women stay home and take care of the children and the men would work and bring home the money to support the family. Today there is still the man that goes out and works for a living and the woman who stays home and watches the kids, but we are steering toward a balance between the two. Families consist of two working parents and children. This compromise shows signs of gained equality on the women?s side.
What is the first thing that comes to your head when you hear the word hockey? Is it Wayne Gretzky? Or maybe the ?Edmonton Oilers?. One thing that you definitely don’t see is a pack of women chasing a ring around the ice with sticks looking for that puck. Hockey to the male is an aggressive sport of blood and guts with enough excitement to keep you intoxicated with the thrill of the sport for the two hours that it is on. Women?s hockey, also known as ?ringuette? may be exciting but it doesn’t have the drawn in violence that hockey has. Just listen to the name ringuette, anything that ends in ?ETTE? has to be a women?s sport. If ringuette was half as good as hockey they would have ?Ringuette Night? in Canada, however they do not. The same goes for football and baseball, men simply have this area of domination in the bag.
In conclusion, it would not be fair to say that men are better then women or that women are better then men. What you can say is that there are some things that women can do better then men and there are some things men can do better then women. But when it comes down to it, men are still ahead of women. In the future though we will probably end up equal after all, we did have a head start and just like the black Americans, equality was not reached overnight.
