Posted November 12, 2019 08:18:00 It’s a strange thought.
As an Australian, it’s almost as if my culture has made it impossible for me to see the world in a way that’s appropriate for the majority of Australians.
That’s because I’m a male.
It’s an uncomfortable thought.
But it’s a fact.
Men don’t feel entitled to be the ones who have the power to tell women what they should be doing, and the power they need to say no.
That’s why we can’t have equality without equal rights for women.
Women don’t have equal rights, or they wouldn’t be talking about it in the first place.
They want equal access to the same opportunities and the same recognition that they deserve.
When I see women in power, I see powerlessness.
And that is an indictment of our culture.
The women who are in power in the world today don’t understand the power women feel when they’re denied the same power as men.
I want equality, but I don’t want to give up my power.
They’re doing it because they want to get ahead and they want their daughters to be better educated and to be able to make better decisions and to have better opportunities and they don’t see the benefits in it.
A woman who has never had an equal opportunity in life is not someone I would want to have a relationship with.
You can’t say it’s not possible to be equal if you have to accept a certain standard of beauty and to live with a certain type of man, but to be equally equal it has to be based on equality.
If we are going to get equality, then we have to get the men out of power.
