Inspired by the 52% that voted that gender roles are a good thing, I want to know why you think this way

Not really. For plenty of people, this isn't accurate.

To me, it's simply the way that we are genetically wired. There are certain things that women are innately better at than men, and things that men are better at than women. That doesn't make one better than the other. It just makes us different.

If that's your reasoning, then explain why I (a female) hate cooking and cleaning more than anything else, and have no desire whatsoever to ever be a mother or not have a career. This is not an isolated case either. I know plenty of women like me.

Also, explain why men like my fiancé actually enjoy cooking (and are good at it) and are very good at cleaning. Why should either of us be held to standards that we will always fail to meet?

Cooking and cleaning are not what I meant. Those are simply activities. I was saying people are all wired differently. And beyond that, men and women are usually wired differently, in some areas. You're fiancé and yourself are a good example of that.

Alright. So what are some examples of how women and men are wired differently?

Ethanmay, if you fail to recognize that men and women are different, have a look here... www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/269652.php and here... chipdesignmag.com/display.php?articleId=3307

That was an interesting article. I've read a few things on that before, and to a point I can agree with it. But people don't need to be told how to act or what to do just because of their sex.

Good articles, and that was more along the lines of what I was trying to say. By no means, in any situation, was I trying to say that men and/or women should be told what to do and how to live. That's ridiculous, and sexist.

No, they don't need to be told. It comes naturally.

I think the point is our societies genders roles are not natural or inherent. I distinction- "sex" reference to biological differences, "gender" refers to cultural distinctions. Gender is a social construct, it varies from culture to culture. The

simple fact that gender roles vary wildly throughout the world indicate clearly they are not a natural condition. Our society creates and perpetuates gender constructs through culture. Differences between biological sexes can be said to certainly

influence the gender roles that various societies have created throughout time, but that doesn't signify that the construct we practice is any more natural or inherent than any other societies. Ours is certainly imperfect.

Silly liberals... always overthinking, over analyzing and concocting/applying absurdity to every given situation. To the unintelligent, it comes across as sophisticated. But, it's nothing more than pompous hogwash.

Which part of what I just said do you believe to be debatable? Skepticism is always beneficial, but active ignorance is not. Which part of my argument can I elucidate you on?
