There has to be a better way, a gender neutral and to borrow one of the left wing extremists own buzz words a more "inclusive" way to get rid of this dehumanizing situation. Then, we can live like people not live stock, segregated by our sex into roles .
i liked a good bit of your post but i have to raise a point about this. like live stock, we are animals. except for asexual animals, all animals are, by nature, separated by gender. each gender has it's own qualities that it is born with that, when combined with the other gender, allows the species to survive and propogate.
as with most communal mammals, males are primarily designed for defense and to provide while child rearing is under way. females are primarily designed to nurture and teach the young. notice that men have higher aggression, greater body strength (naturally built with heavier frames and a greater abiity to build muscle mass) while women have mammary glands and hips designed to carry children...not to mention wombs to give birth to them. did you know that, although men are more resistant to pain, as a rule, women are born with a far greater tolerance for abdominal pain? women can deal with abdominal pain that woud have a man in a fetal position, on the ground. it's an evolutionary quality they are born with to fufill the role that nature saw fit to give them. thankfuly so. if men had to give birth, i seriously doubt we'd see too many future generations.
each gender has it's own physical, mental, and emotional qualities that are specific to that gender and are qualities that have develped, through evolution to allow for the survival of the species. this is not to say that, in most areas, men and women can not perform the same tasks; only that we are separated and differentiated by gender naturally.
this is not an unnatural state we impose on livestock or on ourselves. it is a natural state of animal life on this planet... each species after it's own nature.
