What is it with men and women?
Why can't we just find a happy medium on earth?

1. Men and women are fine
and of the same species, and not different except for a couple of minor plumbing things.

Cultural power structures though believe in divide and conquer. Oh....and sell. Selling is an important part of all this.

So they make up no end of differences that don't actually exist in nature.

Pink and blue? Nope, just cultural additions.

Skirts and pants? Nope, just cultural additions.

Button from the left or the right? Nope, just cultural additions.

Chick flicks and Dick flicks? Nope, just cultural additions.

Everyone is programmed from day one....who does it benefit to make everyone 'different' when they're not?

2. I could not agree..
.... with you less. And attempts to make men and women "the same" instead of "equal" are misguided wishful thinking.

Men and women are different for specific biological reasons.

5. Really darling - I did say "bonked"
not "boinked"

Bonked is a cycling term - it means when you suddenly have no gas left in the tank and feel as though you've ridden directly into a brick wall --


Psst - get your mind elsewhere, darling... :P
