(Understanding your uniqueness as a male or female)
Everyone has strengths and potentials, whether male or female. What you need is to master how to unlock your strength and discover your potentials. You are uniquely unique.
Often, people think that there is a weakness associated or hidden in the human genders, as such you may want to transgendered. Some think that the woman’s gender is inferior to the man’s gender. Some say the woman cannot do what the man can do neither can the man do what the woman can do. In defense, the women often say “what a man can do, a woman can do it better”.
As a woman, you were not created to do what a man can do, neither was a man created to do what a woman can do. God created both species to do what the other specie cannot do. For instance, in human reproduction, the man can produce sperm but cannot not produce the ova. The woman can produce ova but cannot produce sperm. God is not expecting the woman to do what the man can do, talk-less of doing it better. Man and woman were created to complement each other.
This is no weakness but absolute strength. It shows God’s intention to create two unique species of different classes and abilities to form the human race. Why do you kill yourself trying to do what another can do? Life is not all about competition. Yes, we have been taught to compete all our life. We compete to be the best in Class, we compete to win the heart of our parent the most, we compete for the relatively scarce resources (food, money, jobs etc.) in our society. So, we concluded that life is all about competition and now we live to even compete with the opposite sex. To the point that one of the greatest debates in our days is gender equality.
Life is all about purpose and being unique. God created man for a purpose and the woman for another purpose. Both the male and female human species are awesomely unique. No need to be at war or compete with the opposite sex. Just Be unique. That is God’s purpose. Apart from making us male and female, God made some dark and some fair; some slim and some chubby; some tall and some short. It pleases God to make human in different sex, classes, shape and colors. Speak as lady or a gentleman you are. Walk as one. Be proud that you are who you are. No to competition. No to gender equality or inequality debate.
