Men and woman should not be treated equally. We should have equal freedoms, but 100% equal treatment for both genders? I'm not sure any of you want that.

Picture this scenario.. I get into an argument with a man and he throws a punch at me. My instant reaction would be to defend myself by beating him back as hard as possible. If the same happened with a woman, should I treat her the same?

If I did hit a woman with the same force as I'd hit a man, I honestly believe that I would do far more serious damage. I speak in general of course.. There are woman out there that can beat me easy..

Another example then.. Should woman and men compete in the same sport side by side? Martial arts for example.. Ultimate Fighting Championships?

Fighting or working?

Nature isn't rightful. Men are stronger, women have longer life-expectancy. But the human society could be more rightful. Women should get the same salaries in case of the same performance at the workplaces. But they don't.

My only point is that we should have 100% the same freedoms, but 100% equal treatment is not possible.

I agree. But the equal treatment isn't a goal at all to my opinion. Only the laws apply the same rules to different people. We can apply ourselves to the otherness of others. I'm for example always more tactful with men, because I don't want to hurt their feelings or frustrate them. This is my compensation for I have never been attacked by a man in my whole life. Even my father didn't beat me. But sometimes he beated my brother. And we were equal with my brother. It's interesting.
