While we're on the topic of the differences between men and women, I have to share that I've had a bee in my bonnet for many years around the topic of feminism. Why is it that women feel the need to be recognized as man's equal? Why do we feel we have to prove that we can do anything a man can do, and even possibly do it better? Why do we have to gauge our own progress by that of a man's? How does that make us feel better about ourselves? Why should men be the measuring stick at all? Why can't we just accept our femininity as women, honor our differences and say that we're equal as human beings, but its our differences that make us beautiful?
I'm sure some will think I'm setting feminism back by such musings. But I really don't get it. I don't want to be a man. I don't want to do things as a man does them. I just want to come to terms with what it means to be a woman, whatever that may be. But then, who are any of us really?
