Humans love variety. Be it in simple, everyday matters like food, or more important things like cars or a home, we love to see them in different kinds even though we may not want to have or experience all the different varieties. But one of the greatest varieties in life can be found in humans themselves. Though we are just of two kinds, the characteristics that define male and female make us very different and make the debate about which sex is better a very common one. As for me I hold the opinion that women are better that men and this is not just because I am a woman, as you will see in the following paragraphs.
On the home front women are the ones that keep the family going. They clean the house, take care of the children, do the laundry, cook for the family and many times work to pay the bills. They wake up at 5am just like men do, do the same kind of work and get home only to get on their second job – homemaking, while the man hides behind newspaper thanking God he is not a woman. He also hides under the excuse that the very nature of women makes them fit these roles – they are emotional, sympathetic and empathetic, loving, resourceful and economical. But whatever makes women natural homemakers does not matter here, the fact is that men need to do more than just providing the financial needs of the family to be better than women.
Money only helps in providing material things for us. When it comes to what makes good children, youths and later adults, it is parental training. Our parents need to be there all through our developing years teaching and disciplining us. Here too, men are found wanting. It is the mother that stays with the child all day, taking him to school, bringing him back and providing the much-needed education and correction. Although men possess some good characters like courage, strength and forthrightness, most of them put all of these into their careers with nothing left for their family.
