Do they really believe this stuff???
Today while watching the Ellen show, my son and I heard Judge Judy say something along the lines of “…it makes me even madder when women do stupid things because we’re supposed to be smarter…” Of course, Ellen wholeheartedly agreed.
I asked my twenty-year old son, “Does that bother you?”
He shrugged. “Nah. I know it’s not true, so I just ignore it.”
But it bothered me. As the mother of two sons and a daughter, it bothers me. I think women are actually starting to believe this stuff. Young girls today (as well as older women) think they’re not only smarter than men, but they’re stronger as well.
A few weeks ago on Yahoo answers, a question was asked, “In a hand fight between a man and a woman, who would win?” Underneath, at least 75% of women had answered the woman would win. I was flabbergasted! In a regular hand fight between a man and a woman, the women think they would win? What world are they living in? Hollywood?
Come on, Girls. Men are still bigger than you. They are still stronger than you. You MIGHT have a chance if he is a small man and you are a big woman or he is out of shape and you have a third degree black belt, but in a NORMAL fight between a man and a woman IF the man will actually give it his full strength, the woman has little chance of winning. Sorry, but that is the facts. Men are created stronger.
As far as intelligence goes, it’s ridiculous to make a statement that women are smarter than men. In certain ways, women might have an advantage. In other ways, men may have an advantage. As far as making rational decisions and being less prone to deception, I think the men win hands down. Even the Bible refers to women being more easily deceived.
Women need to get off their high horse and remember who they are. We have our own strengths and our own worth. We do not need to try to be superior to men to prove our worth. Our worth is in that we were created by God to fill a special role. We should fill that role and act like women.
Not like that:
