We have been emphasizing the need to understand your uniqueness as a male or female but before we proceed, I will like to seize this opportunity to appreciate everyone who took out time to read, like, comment or shared the “Pt.1” of this article (if you haven’t read it, do so via the link below: https://ccraauekpomaalumni.com/2020/04/11/uniquely-unique-pt-1/
Do you know the woman is not more gorgeous than the man? Yes! Both species are gorgeous. The man is beautifully handsome and the woman is handsomely beautiful. Your physique and attributes as a male or female are the accessories given to you by the divine art of creation to adapt to your purpose on earth. The breast of a woman is primarily not for fashion or aesthetic, it is meant for lactation; the pelvic girdle which has a structural design that gives the hip in women its shape was design with child birth in the mind of God. The muscular nature and broad chest and shoulder of man was for a purpose. Muscles symbolize strength and ability to provide for needs. The chest and shoulder size symbolize to care. Literally speaking it can serve as a cushion or a pillow in a romantic way.
Today we hear of men turning women and women turning men. Don’t admire the opposite sex to the extent you want to be the opposite sex. Yes, as a man admire the curves of a woman but respect the fact that God didn’t give it to you. As a woman admire men’s broad shoulder and physique but respect the fact that you are a woman and not a man. There is dignity in being what you were created to be. You are perfect. Men you are ‘beautiful’, ladies you are ‘handsome’
What about gender equality and gender inequality? My thoughts are different. The man is not superior or inferior to the woman, neither are they equal. They both belongs to a different class of being. Classes that have no grounds for comparison. Water has two atomic components in Chemistry: Hydrogen and Oxygen. There cannot be water without Hydrogen neither is there water without Oxygen. Hydrogen and Oxygen are two different atoms, so there is no ground for comparison between them on which is superior or inferior. Hydrogen is Hydrogen, it is not oxygen and it’s not more important that oxygen in water. When you remove one atom of Hydrogen from water, the water becomes Hydroxide; and when you remove the oxygen in water, the water become Hydrogen gas.
In the same way, the human race is incomplete with only one gender. Neither is there any ground of comparing the genders in humans. This is the reason I see it is as a misconception to uphold gender equality or gender inequality. The summary is that women respect men, men treat women with courtesy. I must make it clear here that this article is talking about gender equality or inequality. It is obviously not talking about husband-wife equality or inequality. That we may talk about in another article.
The excess, is to let you know you are not inferior whether male or female. You are unique, you have strengths and potentials inside you. Discover yourself and unlock your potentials. Don’t be on a mission to compete with the opposite sex or to become the opposite sex. Remain what God made you and look inward to discover the strengths and potentials inside you.
