The Balance Between the Sexes

For the past century, women have been trying to convince themselves that they don't need men, and more recently, men have begun convincing themselves that they don't need women either. I think that this is very tragic. I know that a lot of women in the world are convinced that they are inherently superior to men in every way, and that there are also some men in the world who are convinced that they are inherently superior to women in every way. What is more, there are a lot of people of both sexes who insist that everyone must be inherently equal in every way, no matter what the evidence suggests. I personally believe that all three of those views are fundamentally untrue. I think that if you observe human beings closely, you will see not that both sexes are possessed of the same virtues, but rather that each sex is possessed of a different set of virtues, which are designed to compliment the other sex's virtues, and that these differences will usually show through no matter how strongly society strives to suppress them. For this reason, I do not believe that anyone of either sex can truly be a complete person, without someone of the opposite sex to give them balance. I therefore believe that it is very important for people of both sexes to set aside their self-esteem, and learn to respect one-another and to celebrate their differences, rather than everyone of each sex striving to prove that they are better than the other sex, or else attempting to deny the existence of any differences between the sexes which may happen to be politically inconvenient.
