Don’t be surprised if I drop some ‘just musing’, random personal posts in here.. I think that’s a habit I share with lots of my girl friends, having those spur of moment thoughts and questions.. Just today, I’ve been making a backup of my files when this question suddenly occurred to me..
Are we really the weaker sex? Perhaps some would say yes. In some ways we have our weaknesses. Well, were definitely softer than men but who says that’s a weakness? I must admit that men could be stronger physically though but women just have ways around that.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a raging feminist. I simply like being appreciated as a woman by myself and by others. I don’t consider myself the weaker side of the human specie but rather an equal to men. How so? There are things that men can do that we, women can’t do, but then again that’s just fair coz there’s also a load of things we woman can that men just can’t.
When it comes to the question of whose the weaker sex.. I kinda like this quote as the answer..
I have an idea that the phrase “weaker sex” was coined by some woman to disarm some man she was preparing to overwhelm. ~Ogden Nash
