Men Versus Women......Again??????

Are you as sick of the men vs. the women thing as I am?

I swear- I love hearing about the THINKING and REASONING behind womens points of view and mens points of view differing, but this ongoing controversy of women can do everything men can do and just as well.....and men can do everything women can do and just as well......is getting seriously boring as HELL to me.

Let's be honest and just ADMIT it- there are some things women CAN do that men CAN'T- no matter how hard they try- they just CAN'T.
They aren't programmed for it- NOR or they equipped for some things we do.

And VICE- Versa.

There it is.
All wrapped up in a nice, neat little package with no bullshit.
Just the cold, hard truth.

I, for one, am one of those women who doesn't WANT to do everything men can do. I believe in equality- in work and pay- but as well as I do at SOME things men do- there are things I know in my heart I will never be able to do as well as my man. And truth be known, there are plenty of things I don't WANT to do that my man does FOR me.

Like change the light-bulbs in the overhead lights. I HATE that job. It's a small thing- but I don't wanna do it. Not because I can't...I just don't wanna. I don't mind taking out the rubbish, but I HATE tying the bags up- or putting the twisty ties on them.

I don't mind cleaning the bathroom, but I HATE doing any kind of plumbing.

I love cooking, but my hubby is just as good a cook as I am- some times he's a better cook. And he's a MUCH better bartender than I am.

And despite me being a certified interior designer, Paulius is just as good at it as I am.

Honestly, the truth is- there will always be someone better than you at something- sometimes it will be a man,
Sometimes it will be a woman.

The ONLY thing women can't do is produce sperm for making babies. And the ONLY thing men can't do(yet, looks like that may end soon with the research that is going on, tho) is MAKE the egg for the baby.

So can we just PLEASE call it EVEN for now????

Sure. :)
I'm a competitive beast, but this particular argument doesn't do much for me.

LOL- I just re-read this and I realized something. This is EXACTLY why I don't do much writing when I am tired.

This has to be the most rambling, unorganized, argumentative piece I have ever written.

I swear- i think I was arguing against myself. OPf course, I havent had any sleep yet(worked last night and just got home) so I may be wrong.....
OMG!!! Me WRONG??? That would be a first.

Do yourselves a favor and justt IGNORE this entire piece.

Cindy- Thanks for the comment. You must be just as tired as I am.
;-)
And thank you for the e-mail re: Hunter.
I hope to have it finished by the end of the year.

I didn't think this was so bad Sunny!

I agree. Although there are things I could do that my wife does, many I just don't want to. There's nothing like coming home from work every night and finding a (good) meal waiting for me on the table. I guess I could prepare the food, but then we'd be eating a lot of cereal. So, I stay out of the kitchen, she stays out of the garage, and that works for us. (unless I am cleaning up the kitchen, which is the least I can do!) On the other hand, I fix the cars, carry all the heavy stuff, kill the spiders, re-arrange the furniture. (and then move it back when she doesn't like it!) And yes, there are things she does which I just can't do. Like braiding hair - for some reason, I just can't seem to get that one! (OK, maybe another one I don't want to!) But I'm sure there must be something! :)

I guess it's just a matter of recognizing and appreciating each others talents. Interesting how in my case, my wife and I have fallen into these "traditional" roles though. (whatever that means!) But if I were cooking, we'd definitely be in trouble!
