Anyway, I find arguments like these futile. They put men and women in competition when they don't need to be. Neither have it 'more difficult' than the other.
Do men have to worry about access to birth control? No.
Do they have to worry about pregnancy? No.
Do they have to worry about access to abortions? No.
Do women make as much money as men? No.
Do women hold as high positions as men, on average? No.
Do men have to worry about employment rights/employment termination during pregnancy? No.
Are single fathers coerced into prostitution are often as are single mothers? No.
Are men as sexualized as women? No.
Are men blamed for rape (victim blaming)? No.
Need I keep going?
While I do think that man and woman should not be considered binary oppositions and that such absolute categorical and opposing classifications are, quite frankly, dumb; the fact of the matter is that in current westernized society, gender predominantly is viewed in a binary opposition
To those of you who keep quoting me attempting to refute my points or get me to respond: Before you quote me or attempt to refute me, pick up some books on feminist literature, start with maybe "Women's Right's in the USA". Until you've actually educated yourself on the feminist literature available, I have no interest in attempting to engage you, as it's a complete waste of my time.
