Women are not more important than men. Surprised? Think equality.
Women are not more important than men. Women and men are not important, no, not in the long run. Humanity. Humanity is important to all men and women yet they blind themselves to this simple fact, this simple idea, with all the hatred their minds can muster in the dark, dank places they do their thinking. The explorers we read about search new destinations not for the fame or glory but for humanity.
300,000 years ago there was an ape who thought “I wonder what is on the other side of that mountain”. Her cousin had a similar thought. His nephew a similar one. Eventually one of those curious apes found themselves in northern Europe. More spectacularly, though that sounds like a nice story these apes full of wonderment were not explorers. No, they simply were looking for more food to feed their babies.
Those amazing minds among us that strive to keep alive drag the rest of us kicking and screaming into the future. No plan, no guide book, just the unmitigated gall to survive. Those that sit back and stake a claim to some branch of a tree are simply too stupid to go look on the other side of the mountain. It’s never important what is on the other side of the mountain. What’s important is going to see what it is.
When the human mind stifles itself to maintain some paltry position of power it causes all of humanity to falter briefly. We’ve been stumbling toward the future of humanity for quite some time now. Do not listen to those that don’t want to go see what is on the other side of the mountain. Leave them under that tree to rot. Think not another thought for them. If they hold you back and beg you not to go to the other side of the mountain, pick up a stick and beat them with it. Their whimpering will fade as you climb up the mountain, sun warming your back and the wind in your hair. No matter what you find, on the other side of the mountain is the future and it does not need that whimpering ape with the tiny mind and tiny thoughts.
Oh, yes. Bravo, MAL!
Of course women aren’t more important. There’s no reason to believe they are inherently better or worse, more or less important, kinder or cruelest people…
Humans are humans. It’s the individual decisions we all make towards our fellow beings that matter, not our genitals or chromosomes.
What’s interesting is the response on this blog. Had I posted this anywhere else (I might, still) I think I could expect the response of “What do you mean men are more important than women?!” or “What do you mean women aren’t important?!”
The best kind of trolling is the kind that makes people think. :)
Lol! I’ve no doubt you’d get such responses. But pray tell, sir, why you delight in trolling those who are obviously illiterate? ;)
Seems to a simple man like me that anyone who can spell intersechunality must be literate.
By the way…it’s good to see you around, friend Francis. I trust you’re well?
I’m quite well. Busy as all get-go. Not quite as annoyed as I was a while ago, but certainly less involved. I’m trying to find a good balance between getting my own stuff done, and working on men’s issues. I find that I’m not making a big dent in either, so I’m sort of paring back down to basics.
Umm… men can’t get pregnant, and a pregnant woman needs 9 months of protection in order to keep the baby safe, so women are actually more important than men. Otherwise, the human race dies.
You’re only looking at half of the equation. Men cannot get pregnant. Women cannot get pregnant without men. That, and with 7.something billion humans on the planet, reproduction is no longer a priority for our species. “Important” always implies “for what?”
