Recent thoughts of the precarious social position of the white American male elicited wider explorations of American males and females in general, the reality as opposed to the politically ‘correct’ conceptions. The reality is what we must live with, after all. This was triggered by a recent report from scientists who used eye-tracking equipment to define how each sex looked at a human female.
It turns out that as long assumed, male humans tend to check out a woman’s shape first, beginning with her bosom. This is assumed to be a biological imperative, for which we boys are both derided and forgiven; after all, we can’t help it. The reporters seemed–or at least, pretended–to be surprised, that the girls looked at other girls the same way. We suppose the surprise was a necessary sop to the Feminists because we all understand the intensely competitive nature of the human female in her need to select an appropriate father for her children. After all, that is her biological imperative. The male, the biological sexual aggressor, automatically checks out females, giving passing males much more casual notice. The female concentrates on her competition. That is the biological reality elucidated inarguably via science.
That’s a poke in the eye for male-female equality as exploited by the Feminists. They want to make men and women not so much equal, as equivalent and interchangeable. Two women then, must be equal to a man and a women as the homosexuals want it. But human biology doesn’t work that way and as eye-tracking shows, neither does human psychology. We aren’t designed to live like that. Nevertheless, we go charging ahead to compel it via government force. That reminds of the old saw that a camel is a horse provided by the government…
The problem is the one raised so clearly by George Orwell in his book “1084” wherein the government insisted that: “War is Peace” and “Freedom is Slavery” among other slogans. The same verbal prostitution has been applied to “rights” and “equality.” Men and women are not, never have been and likely never will be, equal. Size, skills and attitudes are not the same. They do have equal rights. Their common humanity is identical. Their minds and bodies, are thankfully, not.
Our society, seems to us, will work better if we recognize reality in ordering it, instead of trying to replace reality with scientifically invalid political games aimed at vote-garnering class warfare. We pay a lot for harboring such fallacies. And our kids pay an inordinate share of it.
So men and women aren’t equal, only their rights are. Each has a place unique to him or her that the other cannot fill. We are different. And: “Vive le difference!”
