Women’s History Month
The cost to society, when we keep women from achieving their best, can’t be measured in simple billions of dollars of lost productivity.
Ignoring the value women bring to our world is at the peril of future generations.
Thankfully, coming generations are embracing the nature held unwavering theorem that women are just as capable as men in every single aspect of life.
It’s a natural law. It’s a divine concept. It’s even an evolutionary precept.
1- The Genesis account – woman was taken from the rib to symbolize her equitability and value next to and equal to men. Through the effects of sin… men labeled themselves superior and have thwarted the growth of women for too many centuries.
2- For those who value survival of the fittest – evolution should have wiped out the lesser option of physiology if it was not as strong and capable as the other option. Yet, here we are with half of all living humans being female. And despite all sociological efforts to subjugate evolution to eradicate women’s influence… we’re in an era where a woman’s voice has more impact than ever in recorded modern history (for those who think women are just baby incubators, why invest so much into making them very smart… if all you need is an incubator?!? But I digress)
3-It’s part of the natural order of things that women exist and contribute to life. And they do so very very well despite the massive cultural and social barriers erected before them. Imagine if they were supported and promoted.
As one philosopher once said (the name eludes me) how many genius minds of the world are silenced when we oppress women and minorities around the world. Their smarts devoted to survival instead of discovery of their genius… leaves a colossal loss to humanity.
When we look back through the perspective of his-story… it appears as if women didn’t do much. This is why it’s important to bring out her-story so she knows she’s just as valuable as anyone else.
From a purely selfish position, it’s still advantageous for a man to support and elevate his lady. It’s vital he’s not intimidated by her but learns alongside her. They both end up in a better place.
Yeah. I get it. As a teen (which I am not) it can be scary to spar with a woman who’s far more capable of outwitting you. The vague notion that her prowess means you’ll not get laid far outweighs logical thinking. Maybe, you can get laid if you just leveled up to her level… instead of bringing her down to yours.
So, guys. Level up!
Ladies… there are guys who aren’t intimidated by you and have leveled up and wanna be in your company.
Today, being that it’s Woman’s Day… let’s just celebrate the beauty that is their complexity. Women just can do it all. That makes them amazing. And as cool as that is, they actually still want us to share the planet with them. Truly utterly amazing, given our track record with them.
Cheers to all the women who make this world go round. Thank you for ions of awesomeness that sadly goes unnoticed. You’re the MVP!
Long may your love of life bloom as you go about being the best that you can be.
Editorial Note: certain artistic liberties with facts were taken… to add entertainment value of this read. In all seriousness, women are phenomenal. Period. Thank you ladies for making this world a better place.
