From Two Different Planets

Although men and women are both from the same planet we are made up very differently. I like to look at all men and women created equally. When we are born we are all weak. Yes we are built differently but we all start out the same. With the opportunity to be a supernatural human being. There is nothing that grinds my gears more than women feeling inferior to men. It does so because we can be just as strong, smart, fast, and quite evidently more pain tolerant. Have you ever experienced sitting in your weight class and your coach says, “okay guys give me 2o pushups girls 15, and ladies if you need to you can do them on your knees”. When i am told that i make sure i go the extra five do them perfectly, and off my knees. Cause i want everyone to know that women can be just a strong as men. And some of us are. Women’s lower body strength tends to be more closely matched to men’s, while their upper body strength is often half that of men’s upper body strength. It’s different for everybody, but why are there limitations for things women and men can and can do? Such as rank to certain places in the military. Are men more emotionally stable than women. Why when a girl tries to do something that commonly completed by a man they are under estimated? will women ever be equal in society?

Today Vs. Years ago

Check this out; in 1913 women couldn’t vote, have a credit card to their name, apply to graduate school as a married woman, purchase the pill, own their own land, become an astronaut, become a supreme court justice, access emergency contraception, and more. Don’t get me wrong we have evolved tremendously over the years. We can not stop now , because women still have less opportunities than men. Which is crazy. Women should be allowed to be on men’s sport teams, in fact they shouldn’t even be called a men’s sport. Yes indeed there are things that both race can’t do compared to the other, both genders should be treated exactly the same. We both need each other to sustain life. So why is it such a big deal if a girl is on a football team. Yes i understand they are allowed to but they get told they will never be as good as the player next to them, who evidently is a male. Is cheerleading for girls? That’s a controversial question. It’s easy for a man to get into a primarily female sport. Such as cheerleading. And for Volleyball they even started a men’s volleyball team. So why can’t girls play on a girls football team? Since boys don’t want girls on there team.   Many males feel like if there is a girl either on their team or they are playing against then they will play differently, worried that they will hurt the female athlete. They do not need to worry about that. Female athletes and just females in general need to be treated equally. We all have our own strengths and weaknesses, some of us could run all day without stopping others could eat a whole bag of potato chips by themselves. Whatever you like to do and want to do you should be able to regardless of your gender.
