My Mom was a strong Woman, faced with the early death of my Dad, she did lots of things many men would not try today like Demo, Sheetrocking and other home repair tasks. She didnt learn it because she was interested in it, she was partner-less and the need was there so she learned. Given the choice, she would have rather followed the original plan, She caring for the children and the Home, Dad bringing home the Bacon!
I saw a show where they took men and gave them 50lbs of extra weight to simulate pregnancy, Im not sure why, Guys cant get pregnant, whats the point! Lets face it, they want all of us to be the same, it cant happen and shouldnt! Like a damn Unisex experiment or something, the outcome of which is a bunch of lab rats who are so confused about their gender and biology that they actually cant do anything useful better, just play dressup.
The outcome of this has been two sexes in a single house that cant do anything but call a professional when the car dies, if the Garden Tractor wont run or when the roof needs a patch. Im guessing this is payback for society telling them 50 years ago that Women needed to become more like men! Rosy the riveter was a situational need that changed our society forever. We devalued Women and told them the only way life would be better for them was if they became just like us, overworked and out of touch with our children!
My wife has tried to fru fru me a couple times and it failed miserably! Thanks but no thanks Hon, Im never going to color my grey hair, cover up battle scars with makeup or go to a place to get my hair cut that asks me if I want them to wash my hair first, not happening! My barber better know how to swing a real straight razor without drawing blood and the whole thing needs to be done in less than 15 minutes from the second the snippers come out or Im never coming back, (Ive been going to the same place for almost 30 years, $12.00, 20% more to the Barber and 15 minutes later, Im a new man)!
Strong Men and Women are the backbone of our civilization. Im not being a sexist when I say were different, we are and thats OK! Its OK to be a man or a woman, honestly. Guys dont need boobs, bobby pins and face paint (cept for war and hunting) and women dont really need to chew tobacco, lift cars or know how to repair the septic system for equality and freedom to be real. Even gays know this is an issue for them, why do you think most "Butch" Gays pair with one that plays the role of the Feminine Partner? Because a household with 2 adults that are exactly alike are missing half the ingredients for a happy household!
Years into my adulthood, I worked with a "Nancy Boy" for real. Nancy was born a Woman but you would never have guessed by looking or talking to her/him. We both girlwatched when we did service calls and everyone did a doubletake when Nancy would introduce herself. She had 3 children from her experiment in Heterosexuality in the Navy but had transitioned to gay after her divorce years before. She was Butch as they come and her honey was Lipstick even though she was pug ugly, short and stocky! Try as they might, life sucked for their family, kids failed again and again, rebelled and ran away and Nancy never did master being the provider/ fixer. She destroyed half of the TVs she worked on in the shop (finally being asked to find another line of work) and her carpentry skills at home never surpassed 1st year woodshop in High School. Even if her mind told her she was a man, she was a Woman, I always felt sad for her.
Two folks cohabiting that can build a home from the ground up probably cant muster enough compassion between them to fix a sick child and two Mother figures with a Trowel and a Bag of Cement likely cant fix the foundation of the house even if they are great at keeping the foundation of the family intact 24-7!
If God and Evolution found that us being the same was a good thing, we would be born with everything we needed to create life without help from another gender. That hasnt been the case and having all the technology in the world to overcome natural selection hasnt changed that one lick! Androgyny doesnt work, only on Saturday Night Live!
Im sure it would be easier if all kids and teens could be taught exactly the same things and be super good at all of them but easier doesnt mean better of effective, just easier. Sharing the load doesnt mean two people doing the same thing always, often it means multitasking on things we naturally do better than the other partner. I said naturally because like it or not, we have natural tendencies and capabilities based on our gender that the other gender does not, the words can and should are relevant here, can I do something my partner does or should I when I might better do something they cant?
The experiment needs to end, < 5% of American Couples dont have Natures blessings of dissimilarity to benefit from, why neuter all of us for the few?
